Dandelion Wishes – Simple Stories – Crafty Things – Wendy Meffan

Hi Everyone! It’s Wendy here sharing another Simple Stories Collection … Crafty Things. This collection is ideal for any crafty events or scrapbooking friends as it is full of crafty/ scrapbooking themed items. It has a beautiful pastel colour swatch. I went with some friends on a Scrapbooking retreat in Luxembourg so this collection was the perfect choice for my photos.

I decided I would create a wreath style layout so mapped out a rough circle to follow on the page. I then used a stencil with distress oxides which coordinated to the collection and stencilled around the circle. I matted the photo on two papers from the 6×8 paper pad and positioned it to the left of the circle. I distressed all the edges of the ephemera and then stared positioning it around the circle.


I created the title across the top of the photo using some mini thickers.

Finally I added some ephemera to the edge of the photo and then some gold splatters across the layout.

This layout came together quite quickly once i ahd decided what i was doin . I love the stencilled effect behind all the ephemera just giving some extra interest to the layout.

Do check out this gorgeous collection if you’ve not seen it yet.

Until next time … Happy Scrapping!
