Hi there Magpies, Sheena here again x
For my blog posts this month I have chosen to create with Simple Stories Simple Vintage Botanicals. In fact the name of this range suits it perfectly with its soft tones and flower prints.
.For this page I was inspired by the layered stickers on the 12×12 Vintage Botanicals banner stickers sheet. I chose a couple I wanted to use and added extra machine and hand sewing, ribbons, lace other die cuts, stickers adhering them all together. I made two of the strips up from scratch using patterned paper as my base.
It’s been a while since I’ve used ribbon and lace on a page but this range really lends itself to it.
I added my 2 photos taken at Monets Garden behind a Simple Vintage Botanical frame with foam pads giving it the same treatment of adding to its own layered effect with lots of extras. I even cross stitched through the frame having poked the holes before hand.
Then I adhered them all down to the Scatter Kindness patterned paper.
For my second page I wanted to use more of the Simple Vintage Botanical frames.
Lovely Confetti Fields.
Using the Simple Vintage Botanicals – Love and Sunshine patterned paper as my base I added a torn section from the 6×4 elements paper after removing the confetti 6×4 journalling card. I tore one edge and curled the top edge before machine stitching it down with a curled strip of Hello Happy patterned paper. Under the torn edge I added some gauze that I had coloured using Distress inks.
I layered a small frame over a big frame adding the journalling card underneath which was perfect to go with this photo taken in Confetti fields. I tucked my photo in the small frame then began embellishing the frame with fussy cut flowers and ribbon.
I added my chipboard title with machine sewing to the bottom right with smaller alphas, die cuts and enamel dots to finish off.
I hope these pages provide some inspiration for using this lovely Simple Stories Vintage Botanicals range & please share with us your creations in our Facebook group.
Till next time x
