Double Page Layouts with Simple Stories Simple Vintage Spring Garden

Hello everyone! I have two double page spreads to share with you today using the Simple Stories Simple Vintage Spring Garden Collection. I also continued with the Easter theme from my last post. Get ready for some flowers, bunnies and butterflies. 

For the first layout I distressed a variety of papers to layer under the photos. I used some of the cut-apart cards in the paper pack for journaling. 

I also cut-apart some tags and attached some string from my stash. Finally, I embellished the layout with butterfly bits and pieces, cardstock titles, chipboard stickers, foam stickers and enamel dots

My second layout uses the frames to the max. Even though they have embellishments incorporated, I added more for dimension. 

I added some bunnies and butterflies using a variety of embellishments - bits and pieces, chipboard stickers and foam stickers. 

I finished it off with some enamel dots and cut apart cards with twine bows. 

Thanks for stopping by today and make sure to take a peek in the shop!
