Celebrate Today | Simple Stories | Sheena Rowlands

Hi there Magpies, I hope you are all staying safe & well x

I’m continuing to play with Simple Stories- Simple Vintage Garden District on my desk. Some of the papers seem just to pretty to use so I thought I’d have a go at using one.

Celebrate Today.

I had this lovely soft focus photo of my Son & his partner at a ball & wanted to find a way to show it off.

I chose the b side of the Chose Happy paper with its watercolour style rose as my layout base but didn’t want to cover too much of it up. I started by printing my photo 6×4 in & backing it with a Vintage Garden District chipboard frame. I added further soft layers of book paper, guide & a doily.

I loved the rose so much I wanted to keep it as a feature so with 4 colours of sewing thread I hand sewed around all the petals.

Once I was happy with the photo position I continued to embellish the frame with Vintage Garden District chipboard and die cut flowers and a sprinkling of brads.

I hand cut the title from the 6×8 paper pad and added on foam pads to complete my page.

We would love to see your creations over on our Facebook group.

Till next time x
