Simple Stories: Happy Berry Picking!

Good morning! I'm excited to share another two-page layout with you today using "Summer Fresh" by Simple Stories.  I love creating two-page layouts when I have a lot of photos to tell a story. I recently took my twin girls strawberry picking for the first time. It wasn't just the first time for them but for me too! We went with cousins and had the best time! The girls loved hunting for strawberries and eating a bunch too!

When I'm creating a two-page layout, I always try to carry out elements across the two pages - here look at the scalloped border at the top and the gingham border at the bottom.

I cut out the "Happy" letters and outlined them so they would stand out a little more.

I did some layering for the title and I just love those cute little strawberry stickers! Perfect for this page!

One way to add a little dimension to Simple Stories products is to add jewels or brads to floral centers.

I used an Odds n' Ends pocket to hold the journaling and trimmed down a 4 x 6 card to fit inside.

It has been soooooo hot here! I could hardly handle working out at the gym yesterday morning - it was just so humid in there! Tonight we start something fun - the girls are going to a two week ballet and tumbling camp! I am dying over them in their leotards and skirts! They are so adorable!

Have a great day! :)


  1. I always love your two-pagers and how you mix the sizes of the photos!

  2. Darling! Love how you scrapped the "Summer Fresh" kit and the sweet photos!
