Simple Stories Boho Sunshine Layouts and a Card

Wow, it is July already! It is so nice to be scrapping again. I'm excited to show you the Simple Stories Boho Sunshine Collection. It is cute and playful and perfect for scrapping pictures of my 11-year-old.

My first layout has a background made from distress inks that were applied with a dry sponge. The butterflies were fussy cut and glued to their corresponding colour. 

The black lines were drawn by hand. The embellishments all came from the cardstock sticker sheet in the main kit or the bits and pieces die cuts floral pack

My next layout uses two pieces of paper. I cut a square out of the center of one paper and set it off-center. Then I backed the frame with the second paper. The picture is surrounded by papers that were leftover from the frame backing. I used a chain stitch to sew around the frame using white embroidery thread. 

The title and butterfly are pieces of chipboard. The flowers and hearts are from the bits and pieces pack. The subtitle is a cardstock sticker and the clay circle embellishments are from Studio Katia from an older kit. I used an older blue Stickles paint for the centers of the flowers. 

This collection has some premade frames that make it easy to highlight a picture. I liked how this frame matched the paper. There are also some cut-apart cards in the paper pack which are perfect for journaling. 

My final layout was fun to make. The paper kit has one sheet with tags on both sides. I cut them all apart and then chose the ones that looked best horizontally. I printed my pictures using the collage feature in Picasa. It allowed me to print 4 pictures on one 4x6 print. I backed them with some yellow paper. Then I used the bits and pieces, chipboard and cardstock stickers to embellish and found some string in my stash. 

The final touch was to doodle around the tags with a black pen.

I also had the chance to make a card. They are not something I usually make but I had a wedding shower to attend. I used a piece of Bazzill cardstock from a previous kit. The embellishments are from the bits and pieces pack and cardstock sticker. The title was cut out from a paper in the kit. I used thread to sew the letters to the rainbow. It was a little tricky to try to get the letters to hang with just the right amount Finally, I used some Nuvo drops to highlight the center.

I hope this offered you some inspiration to get crafty with the Boho Sunshine Collection.
