Simple Stories Guest Designer & American Crafts Plus One Layouts

I am excited to share, that I am guest designing with Simple Stories today!!  I hope you will stop by the Blog and see what I created using A Charmed Life.  I loved working with the mix of fun colors in this collection, and all of the great embellishments!  Here's a little sneak of one of my layouts and you can see the full projects today on the Simple Stories Blog!

And now on to two new layouts using the Plus One collection from Amy Tangerine!  There is also a giveaway on the American Crafts Blog this week, and you can stop by and comment for the chance to win a Plus One prize pack!!

When I start a layout, I like to bring in colors that coordinate with my photo or photos.  I loved the bright pops of Pink and Yellow in the Plus One collection, and they were a perfect match with the colors in my photo.  I balanced out the brighter colors, by using a black and white pattern for the background.

Supplies:  Duet (366817) - Plus One, Match (366819) - Plus One, Soulmate (366818) - Plus One, Accomplice (366822) - Plus One, Twins (366837) - Thickers, Flair (366906) - Adhesive Badges, Bits (366849) - Die Cut Cardstock Shapes, Remarks (366842) - Us, Elements (366852) - Fabric Brads

I love the graphic look of the Plus One collection, and I wanted to create a background for my layout, that enhanced that look.  I used my Silhouette Sketch pens to draw the word 'love" (an American Crafts cut file from the Silhouette store) on my background paper.  Then I cut the word "love" from two of the Plus One patterned papers and layered them over the sketched words.

Supplies:  Peer (366826) - Plus One, Accomplice (366822) - Plus One, Companion (366824) - Plus One, Twins (366837) - Thickers, Soul Mate (366818) - Plus One, Pair (366821) - Plus One, Bits (366849) - Die Cut Cardstock Shapes, Elements (366852) - Fabric Brads, Accompany (366856) - Stamps, Associate (366860) - Dies, Mixtape (366839) - Washi Tape
