This week on the Scrapbook Circle Blog, I participated with DT member Kelly Holbrook in the 1 Product 2 Ways post. Using the Simple Stories ‘Love & Adore’ stickers from the kit, I used the stickers in a traditional layout.
I love the watercolor stripes in this paper from Simple Stories, and as much as I loved the fragmented heart graphic, I really wanted to focus on the paint stripes. I cut out the heart, saving it for another project, and adhered a piece of plain white cardstock behind it.
Then I layered all kinds of the Simple Stories stickers, color blocking, with the printed paint stripes. I added a couple stripes of paint at the bottom to add my title with the Simple Stories Alphas, part of that same sticker package.
I hope this approach inspire you to use the the Simple Stories stickers in an interesting or graphic way! Thanks so much for stopping by and have an amazing weekend!

Hello my friends! I have been sitting in the sleet rain and "snow" of the Winter Storm Helena, which didn't amount to much, writing blog posts This one, part of the 1 Product 2 Ways post has been a total ray of sunshine. Along with DT member Allie, I used the Jillibean Soup Label Stickers from the December kit ‘ to create a colorful layout.
I wanted to use the stickers, almost as a banner description, for each of the photos. I printed several photos, throughout the day, from my son’s birthday last year. I added a square piece of patterned paper being each photo as well as a vellum ‘banner’ that I placed the sticker onto.
I wanted to create a fairly light page, keeping the focus on the Jillibean script stickers. I added a couple other color coordinating stickers around each photo and used the exclusive SC acrylic words for my title…’best ever.’
Still playing catch up from some of my December projects, so I thanks for stopping by!!
Have an amazing day and stay warm!
