NEW Simple Stories Harvest Lane Collection


Simple Stories has done it again with another amazing collection.  Harvest Lane is their beautiful fall collection with so many wonderful details.  I love the gorgeous woodgrains against the reds, blues and greens in the collection.
As always, Simple Stories has created the most adorable cardstock stickers to match the collection.  These patchwork and polka dot hearts add just the right amount of endearment to the design and sentiment of the layout.  I included a little bit of velvet floss for a homespun affect,
Layering different elements of the patterned paper, cardstock stickers and expressions make a fun design that emphasizes the photo of my daughter.  She is at such a fun age right now, not a little girl and not a teenager yet either...
I love to use the 4 x 6 Journaling Card Elements to make cards.  For this one, I cut a 4.5 x 12 inch strip of paper from the Harvest Lane Yellow Quilt/Notebook Paper.  That way there is notebook paper on the inside of the card to write a message to the recipient of the card.  I used a combination of the Harvest Lane Bingo Cards and 4x6 Journaling Cards to create the design.
I pulled out my Fiskars Apron Lace punch (throwback) and some velvet floss to add a little detail and homemade appeal.  Pop dotted the cardstock stickers and added a few jewel stickers for good measure.
I used the same technique on this card as the first one, but made a different sentiment.  The adorable barrel of apples makes the card extra special.
 

I have been on vacation for a couple weeks and am now back full-time.  I'll have another post tomorrow with some brand new Little Yellow Bicycle.  Hoping to bring back my sketches too.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
