Hey friends, welcome to Inspiration Station! I’m Becki Adams and last week I shared an everyday layout with you (you can find that post HERE) telling a story of my son and his favorite stuffed animal. This week, I’m sharing a layout I created that has a little more of a “special occasion” feel to it. This one is called “Segway Love.”
This layout tells the story of my daughter riding a segway for the first time at a school competition. I only had one photo to tell this story with, and it was a photo that came in a text message from my husband that wasn’t the best quality. I wanted my daughter to tell the story in her own words so while I was gathering supplies for the layout I handed her a journaling card and a black pen so she could write her own story.
I used the Posh collection from Simple Stories to document this story. I chose this collection for two reasons. First, I loved the color palette. It has a pop of navy blue along with a mix of yellow, coral, and a lighter blue, perfect for a girly layout without overwhelming the story with pink and purple. The second reason I chose to work with this collection was that it had a more generic theme (meaning it wasn’t a specific theme as a Christmas, birthday, or summer collection).
I mixed LOTS of patterned papers together with plenty of machine stitching around the borders of the patterned papers. A white cardstock background isn’t a base that I typically start with but I love how it worked into this layout.
You can see how the layout came together in this process video:
