Get Lost Layout designed by Nicolle Kramer using Simple Stories 24/seven Collection

Simple Stories 24/Seven Collection
Get Lost Layout
Designed By: Nicolle Kramer

The fabulous Simple Stories 24/Seven Collection I got to create with this month. I Love the colors in this collection. 

I enjoy creating layouts based on the little things in life or simple pleasures. I captured a shot of  Jolie reading her kindle fire. Otis was relaxing on her lap as well. It was just a super cute shot. Jolie struggles with reading comprehension in school and has been working hard to bring up her reading level. Her reading level is about 1 year behind the actual grade she is in. It seems to be very common and unfortunately all my children struggled but caught up by the time they hit high school. I am not sure why they were all behind but was told it had to do with maturity. It doesn't make a parent feel real good when their children don't excel in every subject but I know she is doing the best she can and that's what counts.

There are a lot of different techniques I used on this layout. I used my new sewing machine and stitched around the page. It seems that arrows are a trend now and my machine actually has a built in arrow stitch which makes it a lot of fun to add that technique to my layouts. Of course there are a lot of layers, some stenciling and gesso, distressing, stamping and lots of embellishments from the 24/seven collection. I  also used a sketch for  inspiration of this page.

 The title of this layout is Get Lost. I want Jolie to enjoy reading and I don't think she always does. She tends to count the pages in a book and finds it to be a chore. Jolie tries to avoid it. I hope when she gets older she learns to appreciate it and get lost in the story almost like she does when she watches a movie.

Camera's seem to be a trend as well. How cute is that Simple Stories layered sticker?  Banners are hot as well and love this chipboard sticker.  I love a lot of dimension on my layouts but it doesn't always make it easy to fit in page protectors though.

You can find all of the Simple Stories 24/Seven collection at The Hen's Den store. Get it before it's all gone.
