Mama Llama Layout | Simple Stories


Just for You Mama Llama!

I am so excited to share my projects with you today. I was so inspired by the latest Simple Set called Mama Llama! Have you seen this yet? It is soooo cute! The diecut stickers of little llamas, hearts and cacti? Ya it’s a cute one.

So my first project is a layout – called Mama Llama.
I didn’t want to use a white piece of cardstock for my background so I used a piece of ledge paper from the SN@P! Basics Collection.



I am one who loves layers and colors. This layout is no exception. I used as many pieces of paper as I could for layout. I spread it across the middle of the page and used lots of circles and 3x4 pieces of paper. I have nothing larger than 3x4 on this page.



You can see in this picture below that I created some circle shapes from the 3x4 journal cards and that just allows me to create my own larger diecuts. I love doing this on my pages. I added pop dots under my stickers for dimension.



I hope you like my page. If you are looking for a new collection pack to play with – You NEED to add this one to the list. It is filled with color, patterns, and adorable stickers!

Creating With Welcome Spring | Simple Stories

Hello Friends!
I am sharing 2 layouts I created using the gorgeous collection from Simple Stories; WELCOME SPRING! It's perfect for this time of year and the colors of yellow, pink and light blue can really be used for Spring and Summer.

The first layout I created is called -  Hello Springtime! It's a photo of my cousin's girls enjoying a day outside in the melting snow. I changed the color of the photo to black and white so it would be a good match for this collection.


I first created a circle and cut it by hand. I didn't have a circle cutter and decided to just GO WITH IT! I did some sewing around the edges and I like how it turned out. Sometimes it's just about letting go and creating!


I cut up pieces of patterned paper in 3x4" and used those pieces to create layers. I love this effect. I have tons of color and I really didn't use that much paper.
I always use pop dots on my pages to create more dimension and of course adding clusters of embellishments. The sticker sheet that comes with this collection has tons of cute designs.

 

I added extra stitching, enamel dots, a bit of mist and was very happy with the outcome.

My next layout is called -- So Lovely. As you can see I used 2 pieces of paper and cut them at an angle to create this background. I really loved that blue since it goes well with the shirt my niece is wearing and the flowers on a dark background is just something I enjoy working with.


I did some sewing along the edge and on a small strip in the center of the layout. I used a 3x4" journaling card to add a few sentences about this sweet lovely girl.


As you can see from the previous photos I added more clusters of stickers, enamel dots and some mist again. I just feel like this finishes my layouts.

If you are anxious to start scrapbooking with nice bright colors and get away from the white and blue of the winter season this Welcome Spring Collection is a MUST!

I hope you enjoyed my layouts today and please visit @SimpleStories_ on instagram and come find me as well @KristineDavidson .

Have a great day!

Guest Designer | My Creative Scrapbook

Hello Friends!

I am a guest designer for My Creative Scrapbook this month and these are the cards I created with the March ALBUM Kit.

The Kit I worked with is an ALBUM kit but instead I created 2 layouts and 2 cards with it. I still have TONS of products left and I'll be using them for sure in the future.
This Kit is filled with tons of Dear Lizzy goodness from the Dear Lizzy Lovely Day Collection.


These are the cards I created with this kit -

  Thank You So Much --



 Counting Blessings --


MERCI -- 


These cards are really not details as I kept them simple.
The embellishments and stickers in this kit were perfect for creating cards.
 This kit is PACKED with tons of products!

Guest Designer | My Creative Scrapbook

Hello Friends!

I am a guest designer for My Creative Scrapbook this month and for April and May as well ;) I love their kits because the papers aren't mixed with many other companies. I always have a hard time creating if the papers aren't from the same company. I am not sure why but for years I usually use the same company for the layouts.. Do you scrapbook that way? Do you like a mix of manufacturers on your page?

This is the ALBUM Kit I had the pleasure of working with - It's filled with tons of Dear Lizzy goodness from the Dear Lizzy Lovely Day Collection.


These are the layouts I created with this kit -

--Just Laugh 
 



-- Hey Don't Grow Up! 




As you can see this KIT was so much fun to play with. I love the colors of this collection and this kit is literally PACKED with tons of products!
