Garden Beauty | Simple Stories | Sheena Rowlands

Hi there Magpies, Sheena here again x

I’ve continued to enjoy creating with the Simple Stories – Simple Vintage Garden District. Some of the 12×12 patterned papers are just too lovely to cut into them. I decided for this layout I would try and use one of these papers as my background for this page.

Whilst we have been in Lockdown I’ve spent more time in my back garden and have literally watched it spring into life. I had taken a few snaps of this & thought they would be perfect for this page.

Beauty in my Garden.


I chose the Simple Stories – Simple Vintage Garden District – Use your wings paper as my layout background. As the pattern is in 2 diagonal corners on the background paper I decided to add my design running down the page.

I printed my photos 2 inches square so I could intersperse them with elements from the 2×2 Elements paper that I liked. I laid them all out on the background till I was happy with how they looked. I chose 7 of my photos to showcase the changes with spring arriving.

I add some hand sewing to some squares and chipboard and die cut ephemera onto others to soften some of the edges. I added my title and journalling at the bottom corner.

I hope this inspires you to check out this fabulous range. We would love to see your layouts over on our Facebook group.

Till next time x
