Simple Stories Simple Vintage Lakeside Layouts

 Hello everyone! I hope everyone enjoyed the summer. I sure did and what better kit for September than one to scrap all those photos! The September kit features the Simple Stories Simple Vintage Lakeside Collection. There is so much in this kit! The sticker book is a cool new product and add-on to work with. It just adds so many more options for embellishing.

My first layout used the September sketch from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine's sketchy Facebook group. It gets a lot of pictures on the page and if you don't have enough pictures, there are lots of cut apart cards in the kit to choose from. 

I used two cut apart cards along with my pictures. One of them didn't have a design that I liked so I used some foam stickers and cardstock stickers to create a title over top of the original picture. I tore some of the cardstock in the kit to create the borders and just distressed the green border paper so the project didn't get too messy. I used a few stickers from the sticker book to finish off the layout.

My second layout I used one of the frames that came with the kit. I love premade frames! The border is from one of the papers in the kit and lots of the embellishments are in the bits and pieces pack. I clustered things in groups of three to make visual triangles. The enamel dots helped to add some variety in the size of embellishments. 

I tried to do something a little different with the journaling. I used some words from the sticker book amongst my journaling. A challenge but I think it worked!

Thanks for stopping by and have fun with your September kits!
