Story Teller | Vicki Boutin | Morag Cutts

Hi there friends – I am lucky enough to be playing with the stunning Story Teller collection by Vicki Boutin.  As with all of Vicki’s collections – there is an eclectic mix of elements and stunning patterned papers.

I was inspired by these old photos from a trip to a craft fayre in 2012!  Julie Taylor, Jackie Ashton and I had a great day out in Ally Pally – lots of shopping and laughter!  The ephemera and stickers in the collection are a perfect compliment to the day trip.

To anchor the papers to the page, I stampted across the middle. I then layered the Memoir Paper which I had torn and layered together.

On the left hand side I layered some of the ephemera from the Journaling Die-cut pack. There are beautifull foiled velum pieces included in the pack which look fabulous layered together.

I framed my photos with the cute polaroid frames from the die-cut pack and layered some of the gorgeous journal cards to add some texture and depth.  The Explore die-cut title is from Vicki’s earlier collection – Let’s Wander.  You’ll find that the two collections work together beautifully!

Love Layout

In this layout I used the stunning foiled vellum paper – I love the detail on the circles.  The circles have tiny collages – perfect for adding to your layout because all the work is done!

The border strips on the Plot paper are divine – I love how the elements are already collaged! To make the border unique, I added some of my own stamping and texture paste. I layered up one of the tags from the cut apart set and fussy cut one of the birds from the Songbird paper. You can also see that I added stickers from the Sticker Book and Cardstock Sticker pack.

To balance the page, I added more ephemera to the top right corner.  The gold puffy stickers are from The Avenue collection – they are wonderful to layer with any collection. As the collection has a number of ‘found’ pieces, I also included some old postage stamps from my stash.

You can see how the layout came together on my YouTube channel.

Love Layout Process

I hope you like it! I’ll be back later in the month with two more layouts using this collection.  Thanks for stopping by.
