Simple Stories | Simple Vintage Country Harvest | Part 2 | Giselle Homer

Hello Magpies,

I’m back to share 2  more layouts using this lovely seasonal collection from Simple Stories. I can’t emphasise enough how easily all these layouts came together, the embellishments are so well designed, you can just pop them on your page & get great results every time!

Cozy Days

For this layout I started by stencilling some of the background with yellow & orange inks, concentrating on making a roughly circular shape.


Then I added a few splatters using olive green paint.


I tore a 12″ strip of plaid paper & glued to the top of the background.


I chose a chipboard banner to fit centrally over the join between the patterned paper & the cream background. As the banners in this collection are so well embellished, I only had to add a few stickers to extend it to the length I wanted. I also added the apple & the pumpkin stickers in one of the frames on the banner. I placed the photo in among these embellishments.


To finish the layout I chose a phrase sticker & placed it below the photo at the left corner. I added a few more stickers, some perspex leaves from my own stash & drew a double border around the background.




Autumn is in the Air



To begin the second layout I cut a large polaroid style photo frame using the orange plaid paper, distressed the inner edges & glued it onto a cream background. I splattered a little paint on the cream cardstock too.


I chose a chipboard frame to fit my photo & placed it in the centre of the page. I think the chipboard banners & frames in this collection are my favourites!



I placed embellishments & some fussy cut leaves along the lower part of the layout, adding some puffy sticker pumpkins too for added texture.


To finish I added a phrase sticker for the title which slotted in well with the rest of the embellishments!


There’s plenty more in this collection to make quite a few more layouts, so it’s great value too. The whole collection is in the Hey Little Magpie shop, so pop over there to see it all for yourself. In fact all the ‘Vintage’ collections are all based around the same content & design, so I will definitely be using more!

Until next time, happy scrapping everyone.
