Cherish this family October 20, 2016 07:00

Hey Just Nick friends, I hope you've been enjoying our team up with Simple Stories this week.  I'm excited to share with you how I've paired the Hello Fall collection and the Henna Background and Gratitude digital file designs on the layout I designed.

 

What first caught my eye about this Simple Stories collection were all of the pretty florals and the unexpected addition of blue to the color palette.  I wanted to be sure that my page both included and featured, the two of those interesting details.The florals in the Henna Background cut file helped me do just that.  I was able to piece many of the patterns and colors from Hello Fall behind my diecut piece.  I also layered in several of the floral stickers atop the cut file, to create added depth and interest.

The title was created using a combination of items.  The word "cherish", included in the  Gratitude cut file, was cut from two patterned papers, layerd on top of one another to create a shadowed effect.  The remainder of the title was built by using the delicate script stickers from Simple Stories.

Thanks for stopping by today! Don't forget to visit the Simple Stories blog this week for even more inspiration and ideas using this combination, and join us back here tomorrow for more team-up fun!
