They're Amigos 24/7!

Hi there!

Today I'm sharing some projects on the Simple Stories blog.  I just love the new releases. So much color and so many super fun and cute patterns & designs to choose from.
I created 2 single pages layouts and a card.

As I was going through my photos I came across some of my boys and their cousin. They love hanging out together. I thought the colors in the pictures went great with the 24/7 collection ... plus the theme of the whole collection was a good fit as well. I decided to create a more 'grid' style layout and cut various pieces of patterned paper forming 3 rows of paper and photos.


 I created the sombrero and #3 using my Cricut Expression 2, ....

... and used lots of fun stickers & chipboard embellishments from the 24/7 colleciton.

I then looked through my photos again and came across some pictures of my husband and boys playing in the pool while away on a mini summer vacation.  I decided to use Urban Traveler for this layout.


I love the rich colors in this collection and kept the circle theme throughout by cutting my photos into circular shapes as well.  (trust me ... this was no easy task as I haven't cut my photos up like that in a loooooong time! But I like how it turned out.)


I love the new embellishments (brads and layered stickers) as they add so much visual interest & texture to my projects.


I also created a little card using some of the 24/7 collection. (Love that little phone.)
