Keeping It Simple with Aimee

Hi there, it’s Aimee. I’m so excited to be sharing my very first layout with a kit from The Fairytale Club! 

For those of you who don’t know me or my scrapping style, let me introduce myself.  My style has evolved over the years and continues to still. Right now, I am in the “white space” phase. So, my layouts tend to be minimal and created mainly on white cardstock. I consider myself a traditional scrapper, and 8.5x11 layouts have been my go to lately. 

Since I am currently traveling, this is a super simple layout due to the fact that I have minimal tools and gadgets with me (like my sewing machine for instance).

I created this layout with a piece of the 6x8 pieces using the “b” side (black & white polka dots for the win!) I trimmed it down to fit just inside my 8.5” piece of white cardstock. I also used tiny staples to look like they are holding down the patterned paper to the white cardstock.

I printed 3 photos from my courthouse wedding (in Santa Barbra) with my instax share printer. 
I layered the “fairytale” die cut word, geotag, birds, and flag banner with 3-d foam adhesive over my photos and patterned paper. 

To create the top and bottom paper piecing (or header & footer), I used the scraps from when I trimmed down the 6x8 paper and the manufacturer's strip of one of the 12x12 sheets. I then used the bow sticker to layer over the paper piecing.

I would have loved to have stitched the paper piecing, but since I don’t have my sewing machine I used tiny staples to give it a finished look.
