Vintage Coastal | Simple Stories | Morag Cutts

Hey there friends. I’m hoping that summer hasn’t been and gone and we have more good weather to look forward to.  We had a trip of a lifetime to Mexico back in 2016. When I saw Simple Stories Simple Vintage Costal I knew it would be a perfect collection to document our favourite trip.

One of the best memories from our holiday are the beautiful cenotes – lagoons with crystal-clear fresh water.  This small cenote was our favourite so I wanted to make a layout that would really do our visit justice.

The Vintage Coastal collection has amazing, pretty papers with layered images and a light distressed feel.  The Let’s Get Lost paper has gorgeous vintage elements making it a breeze to create as all the hard work is done.

To add a little colour behind my photo , I smooshed some ink and watered down acrylic paint to give a splashy water effect. I layered some gauze under my photo for added texture before creating an embellishment cluster. The die-cut bits and pieces have a great selection of pretty shells,  I layered these over a handmade tag. Die-cut leaves and flowers add more depth and texture.

I made another embellishment area at the bottom of the layout. To create layers, I used a mixture of die-cuts and 12×12 Combo stickers.  To add more layers I also die-cut some of the patterned papers.

I hope I have inspired you to document a favourite holiday – just what we need while we are unable to travel.
