More Simple Stories Vintage Cottage Fields | Sheena Rowlands

Hi there Magpies, Sheena here again x

Today I’m sharing 2  more layouts featuring Simple Stories Vintage Cottage Fields. The papers in this collection are beautiful soft colours making them perfect for scrapbooking baby and child photos.


For my first layout I started with a photo of my daughter as a small child and the B side of the 4×6 elements paper. This paper is my favourite in this collection. Next I found the chipboard frames, using a square one & parts of 2 more as the basis for my 3 clusters.

I picked out all the patterned papers from the 6×8 pad which were blue or pink and started to build the clusters adding distressed layers. I added fussy cut or chipboard flowers to each group plus buttons and butterflies helping your eye travel around the page. I added some cross stitching by hand to the frames anchoring them down. The title is a foam sticker from the 6×12 set.

Oh Happy Day.

Featuring a baby photo of my Daughter taken 21 years ago!

For this layout I concentrated on the patterns in the 6×8 paper pad picking out the pink based ones. I cut lots of squares and machine sewed them to white cardstock distressing and lifting the edges giving a quilted effect. Then matted this further on to a basic kit 12×12 background.

I popped my photo in another of the chipboard frames embellishing it further with die cuts and ephemera creating a cluster in the lower left corner.

To balance this I added a small cluster opposite including a die cut as my title. Then scattered butterflies and hearts between the two.

I hope these layouts inspire you to scrap with this wonderful range. Do share with us your creations over on our Facebook group as we love to see them.

Till next time x
