Simple Stories: Faith

Hello...hope everyone had a good Easter (if you celebrate). We had family over to our house and I was grateful it was a beautiful day.  
Today I am sharing layouts I created with Simple Stories' Faith collection.  I absolutely love the colors of this line!  Who am I kidding, there isn't a Simple Stories line I don't love!  

For my first layout, "Child of God",  I used a beautiful photo of my niece on the day of her first communion. She is so photogenic and I love scrapping photos of her.  I began with the fun grey wood grain background and added the navy print at the bottom of my page. Of course, I had to add some stitching with my sewing machine!  

I layered my photo and 4x6 Journaling Elements along with the "I Am A Child of God" 3x4 Journaling Card for my title.  I then used a circular floral cut file with white cardstock and adhered in the center of my page. 

I added small embellishments such a chipboard, die cuts, enamel dots,  and decorative brads to accent the circle.

I am in love with the roller stamps that Simple Stories released last year!  I stamped some hearts along side the date on the side of my photo.

For my next layout, "He Knows", I used kraft cardstock as my background.  I love the feather print included in the Faith collection and wanted to use it with one of my favorite cut files (I Heart Plaid from The Cut Shoppe).  

I used the die cut and sticker feathers to accent as well as sentiment stickers to accent my photo.  I usually layer a lot but with this page, I felt like less is more. I wanted the focus to be the picture...its one of my absolute favorites from one of our trips to Haiti.

I used the "He Knows.." Cloud and Stars die cut as my title; I wanted to add some dimension so I "popped" it up with foam tape.

I typed out my journaling on white cardstock using my electric typewriter and cut into separate strips.
