So I thought I'd share one of the things that I made for Scrapbook Studio. I was asked to play with Simple Stories "Fabulous." It is unrealistic to think that I will love all the lines that I'm asked to play with, and some I won't even like. This one fell into the "not love" category. Because I'm prone to over-thinking just about everything I tried to pinpoint what the sticking point was for this line. Turns out that the creamy base is what holds me back from loving this - and most of the Simple Stories lines. But every person who, like me, would prefer a white base, there's probably an equal number (if not more), who think the cream is easier to work with.
The funny thing is, I decided to just forge ahead with the white backgrounds. Maybe it's wrong but it worked for me. I'm pleased with the results.
Here's the layout I made with it:
That's my daughter Maggie (on the outside) and her BFF Tessa. I took their senior portraits and these are a couple that we did together. Converting the pics to black and white made it a easier to with the line - their clothes didn't match the papers, but I think the line has a fun, young feel that perfectly matches these girls.
Yep. I love it. And in real life it's even neater looking.
And while may not have loved the line, these little birds? I'd spring for a whole sheet of them. I think they're absolutely adorable!
So that's that for today. I really need to get back to pretending to study. Those Betrami-Poincare thingees aren't going to solve themselves. Sweet baby Jesus, I really dislike this class. But come this time tomorrow it'll be nothing more than an unpleasant memory. :P
Thanks for stopping by!
