Simple Stories: Carpe Diem Layouts

Today, I am sharing layout I created for the Simple Stories Design Team using the new Carpe Diem Scrapbooking collection! Since its February, I used love as my theme for both pages! 

One my first page, titled "You Are So Loved" I used a cute photo of my niece.  Starting with white cardstock, I layered a 6x12 piece of Make It Happen.  I then layered a strip of the B side of Make It Happen as well as Brand New Day. I always using my sewing machine so I stitched through one of the strips.  

For my title, I used the pink letter stickers from the Expressions Cardstock Sticker sheet. I then used the "LOVED" Simple Stories cut file (#92340) from the Silhouette shop and the Pink Dot/Black Dot sheet.  

I layered  stickers from the Fundamentals and Expressions Cardstock Sticker sheet along with Chipboard accents and a cute floral Bradz.  I love to layer my little embellishments into clusters at the corner of my photo. 

How cute are these clips?  I added the pink heart clip to the top of my photo and secured with a staple. 

I wanted to use a heart background cut file but couldn't quite find what I was looking for, so I created my own using a repeating pattern of hearts.  I added random prints of the B side of Don't Mind Me into a few hearts. 


For my second layout, "LOVE",  I used an old photo of my grandparent when they were dating.  One of the many things I love about Simple Stories is that the papers can be used for just about any theme! 

Using the "LOVE"  cut file (#80540), I cut directly into my white cardstock background.  I then backed it with the B Side of Fist Bump and Pink/White prints.  

One of my favorite embellishments are the Chipboard Frames! You receive a variety of prints and sizes in each pack! I adhered one of the frames to a 3x4 Journaling Card to jot down a few sentences about my photo.  

Showing more of the great embellishments of Carpe Diem!  I used another cute photo Clip, Bradz, and Stickers. You can also spy some coordinating Enamel Dots as well!
