Rainy Day | Inspiration

 
Hi there... Rona here sharing a simple two-pager. I know that there are all sorts of scrapbookers out there. Some love LOTS of embellishments, and some like a more simple look. I vacillate between the two, depending on my mood. Today I decided to make the layout more about the story and photos, so I went with fewer, but more impactful, embellishments. 


There's a pizza ad here in Canada that always started with "It was a rainy day.." in a fake accent. That's the voice in my head reading this layout title. I combined two colours of the Evalicious puffy letters (faux cork and black) for the title. Look how great that faux cork looks!  These alphas are a great size for longer titles or subtitles, and the fact that they're puffy stickers and not chipboard means that they don't have the issue of layers peeling off.


This is a simple cluster, with a plain cardstock circle inset over a This Way Round Sticker, then a puffy sticker from the This Way Puffy Stickers V3 set. (Up close, you can see my cheat since this decorative strip was cut from a 6x6 paper pad.)


And I found the perfect raindrops to finish off my page. :)  Several of the collections have puffy heart stickers. Cut them in half, turn them upside down, and voila.
 


Ok, enough of the rain... here's hoping for some sunny weather!

Rona - Love the blue paper and that red umbrella just pops right off the page. Very nice layout.

Rona, I love that you made the photos the focal point. I know that I love using the piles of embellishments that I own, but it is nice to step back and just make it about the pictures.

It is GORGEOUS!! I love the puffy letter stickers, and how brilliant to turn the hearts into raindrops - I wouldn't have thought of that! I know you said it's simple, but this is one of my favorites!
