1 Product 2 Ways – Simple Stories Love & Adore Stickers

Hi Friends!  I really enjoy getting to share all the designer’s work each month, and being able to focus on one piece in the kit is a great creative base for a inspiring layout.  This week, using the Simple Stories ‘Love & Adore’ stickers from the January ‘Love Notes’ kit, Kelly and I use the stickers for a planner spread and traditional layout.  First up, Kelly uses the stickers to ‘plan it out!’

“I immediately knew that I wanted to use the rectangle stickers from the set in my planner. The calendar squares in the planner that I have are a little bit smaller than most, so the stickers overlap them a little. Which is ok, because it bothers me when things are too perfect :) I layered the stickers in a few of the unnumbered boxes, and used the Feb 14th sticker to number Valentine’s Day. Since February is a short month – I was able to use a few large embellishments from the January kit in the unused boxes at the end of the month.”planner-detail-2

Kelly’s planner embodies February, before even scheduling anything! 😉  Next, I use the stickers in my scrapbook layout below.

“I love the watercolor stripes in this paper from Simple Stories, and as much as I loved the fragmented heart graphic, I really wanted to focus on the paint stripes.  I cut out the heart, saving it for another project, and adhered a piece of plain white cardstock behind it.   I added both pieces to another piece of patterned paper for a border.  Using the color from the border and matching it as much as possible, I painted a watercolor stripe across the layered background and foreground of the heart.    Then I layered all kinds of the Simple Stories stickers, color blocking, with the printed paint stripes.  I added a couple stripes of paint at the bottom to add my title with the Simple Stories Alphas, part of that same sticker package.”
