Enjoy the Everyday – Simple Stories – Good Stuff 2 – Wendy Meffan

Hi Everyone! it’s Wendy here again sharing another layout using Simple Stories Good Stuff Collection. This collection has lots of cut apart and journalling elements to it which is a great for documenting events.

Initially I planned how I would place the elements on my layout and then decided I would stencil behind it all using texture paste, so I picked up all I had placed and stencilled before starting again!

I decided to use a square 4×4 photo this time and use journalling cards with it so cut up the 12×12 July sheet, I then used the Good Vibes and the orange 3×4 cards  from it. Before using the orange 3×4 card I fussy cut out the camera as I thought I could use it at another time as it would  have been hidden. In the collection comes a pack of journalling bits which I  chose to use and this layout has quite a few of those pieces displayed. I used the Juicy details, the fun stuff happens cards, along with the ephemera rainbow to make a cluster to the left of the photo. I distressd all the edges and added some chipboard stickers as extra embellishments.

Having placed all the journalling cards the layout looked quite clinical and so I added some fussy cut flowers and ephemera flowers to either side of the photo cluster.


To the bottom right I then added the big bold chipboard Good Stuff sticker perfect for the photo.

I do struggle with too much white space so created a large cluster using the Enjoy the, and Everyday pieces from the Page Pieces pack. I used the peach journal card and a small tag as well as a couple of chipboard stickers.

On finally looking at the layout I decided to paint over all the texture paste in coordinating colours which made it clearer to see.

I liked the boldness of the layout and it summed up the lively character of the tennis coach too!

I hope you will feel inspired by this layout and may consider painting texture paste if you’ve not tried it!

Till next time… Happy Scrapping!
