For this layout, I used the Simple Stories Hello, Baby collection. I bought the Simply Basics pack (love love LOVE that they do this, a pack of B sides, yes please!) and one cut apart sheet. So for $7, I have the equivalent of a collection pack, as far as I’m concerned. I can get several layouts and cards with the look of the collection, and not shell out the $20+ they want for their collection packs. I did add in a sheet of metallic gold heart vellum from We R Memory Keepers, and of course, my go to white Bazzill cardstock for the foundation.
I stacked a lot of papers, and distressed the edges of every piece for a bit of a shabby chic feel.
I stamped and heat embossed (pale pink and metallic gold) a ton of tiny stars and hearts from Ali Edwards’ baby stamp set, and scattered bling amidst them, too. Some Twinkling H20s along the edge and some jute and heart snaps tied it all together.
