SAY CHEESE MAIN STREET 1 – SIMPLE STORIES – WENDY MEFFAN
Hi Everyone! Happy New Year…I’m on the blog today sharing two Layouts from Simple Stories Say Cheese Main Street Collection. I chose this collection as we went to Disney at Christmas 2018 and am still trying to scrap the holiday memories! Looking through my photos also made me smile a lot with happy memories of a wonderful time and in these present times it was very refreshing.
I used the 12×12 Full of Smiles paper as a base for this LO. I used B side of the 12×12 Full of Smiles paper and tore it across and added it across the top of the LO. I gutted the 12×12 Happy Magic Memories Paper and used it as a border then I added thinner strips of torn paper from 12×12 Dream Come True Paper and 12×12 Happy Magic Memories Paper.
I cut apart the 12×12 3×4 Elements paper and chose the ‘Our Magical Adventure Starts Here’ Card and the ‘On our Way ‘ cards as they worked well with the theme of entering the Magic Kingdom. I matted my photo on another 3×4 card from the sheet.
I used the long scalloped sticker border from the sticker sheet and mounted in on a piece from the 12×12 2×2 elements paper and added it along the bottom of the LO, I then used some of the word phrases across it.
I cut out some of the 2×2 squares from the elements sheet and distressed the edges and added them across the top of the LO, I tried to choose the ones with the most relevance to our day, along with some chipboard elements.
Finally I added a few more stickers and a decorative brad to the journal card.
For this LO I chose to use the pink spotted 12×12 sheet from the Basics Kit. I had gone on a the monorail while everyone was on the Space Mountain ride as I wasn’t allowed on the ride following neck surgery and took a few selphy’s of my Minnie Ears!
In the 6×8 paper pad was a sheet with ‘Smiles from Ear to Ear’ I knew immediately I would use this and used the B side to form a complete mouse ! I then used an appliqué sewing effect around it with zigzag stitch . I gutted the black 12×12 basics sheet and made a border and then sewed the main page to it.
I matted my photo from part of the gutted sheet and then used one of the3x4 element cards behind it. I fussy cut the large camera from the 6×8 paper pad and used it as a main embellishment for the page. I finished off the LO with a few chipboard stickers and some decorative brads.
I have a small die of Minnie and Mickey so cut a couple of die cuts and added them in.
I really enjoyed using this collection as it brought back amazing memories of a wonderful holiday but also in general the Collection has a true feel good feeling to it and all that comes with Disney.
I hope you feel inspired to start scrapping in the tricky times and choose things which will make you smile. Don’t forget to post on the Hey Little Magpie Facebook page. HLM love to see your creations!
Till later on in the month… Happy Scrapping!
