Simple Stories: CHA Projects

Good morning! I am so excited to share these layouts with you today as they feature Simple Stories' new collections for Winter CHA. Simple Stories truly knocked it out of the park! And they have a lot of great new embellishments to add to their collections that I can't wait to work with!

For my first layout today, I created a two-page layout using the new 24/Seven collection. We had a big birthday party with family this summer to celebrate my grandpa's 79th birthday. I had a lot of photos so I printed several of my favorites to 4x6 and the rest are sized smaller. (This layout was also featured for the two-page sketch at PageMaps this month.)

I love the arrows in this collection and couldn't resist using a strip on the left-hand page.

For my second layout to share today, I created an Easter-themed layout using Vintage Bliss. My daughters had funny bunny glasses in their Easter baskets last year so I made that the title of the layout. I just love the pretty pastels in this collection paired with bright white and woodgrain.

I love the faux Polaroid options in this collection. I printed out some photos as squares and adhered them with foam adhesive.

And finally here is a layout with Urban Traveler. I love the bright primary colors in this collection paired with the map prints. We went on our first family vacation this summer and the girls were really excited to sleep in a hotel!

This collection is full of arrows and I used a bunch of them on this layout - lots of sticker arrows and some cut out of patterned paper.


The luggage stack is a sticker! Isn't it great!?

Thanks for stopping by today! I'm really looking forward to creating more with these collections!
