Following on from my previous Divided Loyalties post with S J Crafts, I have two more layouts to share with you today that use a collection intended for use in divided page protectors. These collections are so versatile if you think of them as smaller pieces of paper rather than set sections that have to be used in certain pockets. The colours in the Simple Stories Homespun collection lend themselves to a wide range of subjects but there's a definite focus on home and family.
This first layout featuring my two crazy children makes use of one of the beautiful full pages which has a bit of embellishment printed on it already. It means that you don't have to do much more than add something between the two areas and you have a really quick layout. I simply added some 6x4 cards in a messy stack so that unlike the previous post, I didn't have to do any creative patchwork to cover gaps and joins.enamel dots. Very quick and another memory captured.
This bright layout features my two great-nephews (which makes me feel exceptionally old...) having a bit of a smooch, or trying to! Here again I've used a full sheet from the collection because the hearts fitted the theme but the bright colours stop it from being too feminine. I've used one of the larger strips (4x12) to layer the photo and to act as the title piece by adding an ampersand and their initials from the sticker sheet.
The journalling appears on a 3x4 card and then I have matted the photo onto a 6x4 and then onto one of the larger pieces from the collection. This black piece had an ideal border (which you could stitch) but I didn't need the sentiment underneath so it worked really well for this mat.
I still have 2 off the page projects using this collection to show you so check back soon for more ideas on using those collections intended for divided page protectors.
Bye for now
