I have “A Charmed Life” by Simple Stories

Happy Monday… well it is for this Mama!  My life is truly ‘charmed.’  My vacation is officially started and I’ve been busy packing for our Florida/Disney vacation.  Today, I took some extra time for me so I’m sharing two things with you.  First up, a Clique Kits Locker Room post from last Friday. You can go <HERE> to check it out!  You’ll see how I use 6×6 paper to create a 12×12 layout + there’s a short video too 🙂

I also have another simple, but ‘charmed’ layout for you today.  I used the new Simple Stories A Charmed Life.  This line is fabulous for both girls and boys alike.  I know you see some floral.. but the other side is neutral.  Floral|Polka dots, Floral|Ledger and Floral|Solid.  Simple Stories aims to please 🙂

So for my layout, I chose a photo from when our 7 year old, Sari, was only 6 months old.  Ah,  how time flies!  I used the monochromatic diagonal stripe background and then trimmed three of the journaling cards away from the 12×12 sheet, keeping the three connected.  Next, I trimmed down the yellow polka dot to 6×8″ and the Ledge paper to 6×6″ and placed them as shown below.

I adhered that journaling card strip towards the right side of my layout and tucked a couple doily pieces around my papers.  Next I used the scraps left over from my other layout to create some banner shapes.  I popped up those banners with some foam adhesive by 3L Scrapbook Adhesives.  If you’re looking for a fantastic foam adhesive, look no further that this!  I have them in my Etsy shop for under retail, because that’s how much I love them!  I added a simple title with Studio Calico Wood veneer alphas and a couple mini shipping tags for fun.  This it, short, simple and still so sweet!

I’m happy you stopped by today!  Thank for you spending your time with me today.  Now, mark you calendar & set your alarm for this Wednesday.  Check this out!
