Forever Fall with Simple Stories

Hi there Magpies, Sheena here again x
When I was looking at all the new releases coming into the shop, Forever Fall by Simple Stories caught my eye. Probably as it really is my sort of colours. It’s a seasonal range so not as large as some others from Simple Stories but still with plenty of variety to choose from. I created 3 layouts to share with you today.
I love Autumn.

For my first page I took inspiration from the papers & cut a leaf shape from cardstock. Using a variety of embroidery threads I added strings across the leaf shape adding sequins to the thread as I went. I also sewed around the leaf outline. This did take longer than I’d expected but I really like how it looks.

I added my string leaf to the background patterned paper on foam pads before adding my photo to one side, matted on other papers from the Forever Fall range. I kept my embellishments to a minimum as the leaf takes pride of place. I picked out chipboard, stickers & ephemera to go with my colour scheme.

I love Fall most of all.

I really liked this stripy Forever Fall – Get Cozy paper but felt using it as a full sheet might be too much so I added a section to a piece of watercolour paper and added drips of co ordinating watercolour paint below each stripe. I did each colour at a time giving it chance to dry before starting the next.

Once all the paint was dry I began adding my favourite embellishments to co-ordinate with the stripes, over lapping them in places. Then added my photo of a lovely gift I recently received which looks like it was made for this Forever Fall range.


For my last page I looked for different colours with in this range and chose to go with the pinks & burgundy hues. I added some of the open striped paper on the left side with the sticker edge added underneath it.

I found all the ephemera, die cuts and stickers I wanted to use and arranged them in an uncluttered way across my page either side of the photo sticking some down with foam pads. I added a few stickers from my stash to fill any little gaps.

I hope you like this range as much as I did. You can find this plus lots lots more over at the store.
Till next time x
