Gallery Favourites for May using Simple Stories

Here are a few of my favourites from May's gallery which is all about Simple Stories.  Hopefully they will also fuel you with inspiration for the scrap lift challenge - choose one of the pages from the gallery and use it as inspiration for your page, then share it in our Facebook group ATDML#Create to be in with a chance to win a prize.

First up is Ann's - I love her messy pages this month using Paperartsy's Infusions (you can find them here) and lots of the Simple Stories Faith collection.  I also like the way she's tilted the white cardstock to back it onto the patterned paper.

I love Karen's dimension in this page and all the little bits of doodling around the edges of the page and photos.  The gold foiling on the papers and the embellishments really add some sparkle to a beautiful page celebrating love.

More gorgeous pages from Tricia - using Domestic Bliss - perfectly matched colours with the yellows, greens and blues, and I really like the idea of balancing your page with a half a square at the top and half a circle at the bottom, which is the perfect place to put an arched title.

Here is my page, inspired by my sister...and uses Domestic Bliss too.  I tried cutting with scissors rather than my go to guillotine this time so everything is more uneven than normal! I added lots of layers and stickers all from the same range so that the colours worked well (though I have noticed that Simple Stories use similar colours across their ranges, so you can easily mix ranges and have perfectly matching colours too!).  I used lots of flicks of metallic paints in co-ordinating colours on the card stock background.

Do go and check out the gallery this month, as this is just a taster...you can find it here.  The shop is also packed with Simple Stories ranges here.
