Hey Creative Scrapbooker Magazine Fans! Katelyn Grosart on the blog today creating with the Simple Stories Always & Forever collection.Always & Forever Collection by Simple Stories | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine I’m excited to be back on the blog to share with you my love themed project. Using the Always & Forever Collection from Simple Stories, some adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, a wood piece from Southern Ridge Trading Company and a variety of products from Ranger Ink, I was able to create this beautiful Every Love Story Wall Hanging. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage as I share with you how I created my wall hanging.Wall Hanging designed by Katelyn Grosart featuring the Always & Forever Collection by Simple Stories | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine For the base of my project, I used a wood piece from Southern Ridge Trading Company.  You’ll need to apply three coats of Black Soot Distress Paint from Ranger Ink to the wood piece. After the paint has dried, rub the Tarnished Brass Distress Crayon from Ranger Ink around the edges of the wood piece. Always & Forever Collection by Simple Stories | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine For the focal point on my project, I layered a variety of cut pieces from a few of  the patterned papers, some of the bits and pieces as well as the Sn@p! Cards from the Always & Forever Collection from Simple Stories. At the bottom of the Every Love Story card, I added in the Cherish tag from the Always & Forever – Bits & Pieces. Once the Every Love Story card was adhered I used some of the strips from the bottom of the patterned papers to embellish the bottom of the card.After the center of the wood piece was decorated, I then moved on to the bottom right hand corner. The flowers and large heart were all cut out of the patterned paper from the Always & Forever Collection from Simple Stories. The small black heart and two small gold hearts were taken from the Always & Forever – Bits & Pieces from Simple Stories. When adhering the flowers and hearts in the bottom right hand corner, I used a variety of 3D Foam Squares and Permanent adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to create the different layers.Always & Forever Collection by Simple Stories | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine To embellish the top left hand corner, I fussy cut lots of flowers and the two hearts out of the patterned paper from the Always & Forever Collection from Simple Stories. The two gold hearts and gold flowers were taken from the Always & Forever – Bits & Pieces from Simple Stories. When adhering the flowers and hearts in the top left hand corner, I used a variety of 3D Foam Squares and Permanent adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to create the different layers.  You’ll also want to make sure that the flowers wrap around the Every Love Story saying.To finish off embellishing the wood piece, I fussy cut a flower bunch as well as a black/white heart out of the patterned paper from the Always & Forever Paper Collection from Simple Stories. From the Always & Forever – Bits & Pieces, I cut the gold flower with three flowers on it in half. Adhere the embellishments almost to the top of the wood piece and use a variety of 3D Foam Squares and Permanent adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to create the layered affect.Always & Forever Collection by Simple Stories | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog post.
