Scrapping Loss

Hi Scrapping Clearly friends and fans, hope all's well with you today.
I'm here today to share two projects I did using the Simple Stories 'Heart' Simple Set. This range had me digging out old photos that hadn't been scrapped due to emotional feelings of loss. Absolutely great for that push to get some really important memory pages done.
My first was a pocket page. I had so many photos and didn't really want to leave any out, since they are all slightly different and Gran is no longer with us. This format is perfect to fit in heaps without making the page look overwhelming.
I used a BellaRouge transparent alpha for my title, everything else came out of the Simple Stories kit.

My next project was a standard 12 x 12 layout. 
I did a mixed media background using Colour Blast 'Bling' paste through The Crafters Workshop mini Art Is stencil, then misted Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Navy lightly over the middle. Not fussed with this look, I took a wet wipe and spread out the Color Shine which softened it considerably and also created a nice white outline around my script paste. I then added some splats with the colour shine, this stuff has divine shimmer! So does the Colour Blast paste!

I coloured up some muslin with Tattered Angels 'Walnut Gold' Glimmer Mist and used it as a mat for my photo. I used a small Heidi Swapp Ghost frame to highlight a smaller picture, I love these because they are quite subtle due to their transparency. 

I cut the glittery ends off Heidi Swapp Decorative Glitter Tags and tucked them under each side of my pic and used a patterned paper off cut from Simple Stories pack at the bottom. PaperMate correction tape (WideLine) gave me journalling lines which I outlined to make stand out better.

I am so glad I had this Simple Stories pack to work with. I never would have chosen it myself but it gave me the opportunity to scrap some really important pages for my album. You know, I never even knew anyone had a range like this!
Thanks Kylie xx
