Hi there!  Nathalie DeSousa with you today sharing my first blog post as part of the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine team. I am very humbled and excited to share a bit of my work with you all, so what better way to show you my style than to create a 12×12 scrapbook page that combines a bit of mixed media and the beautiful Bliss Collection from Simple Stories.Scrapbook layout featuring the Bliss Collection by Simple Stories Designed by Nathalie DeSousa | Creative Scrapbooker MagazineBliss Collection by Simple StoriesAll those beautiful and soft colors in the collection are perfect to document spring and new beginnings, so I pulled a cut file from the Silhouette library, and backed it with papers from the collection.Scrapbook layout featuring the Bliss Collection by Simple Stories Designed by Nathalie DeSousa | Creative Scrapbooker MagazineTo add dimension to this page, some Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares were used to attach the cut out to the background.Scrapbook layout featuring the Bliss Collection by Simple Stories Designed by Nathalie DeSousa | Creative Scrapbooker MagazineScrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares    A bit of distressing on the top edge of the page provided the perfect place to add a small cluster of embellishments.Scrapbook layout featuring the Bliss Collection by Simple Stories Designed by Nathalie DeSousa | Creative Scrapbooker MagazineSome of the floral motifs were fussy cut from different papers from the collection, and then added along with other embellishments in clusters around the picture. Finally to complete and balance the page, a small cluster of embellishments was created at the bottom edge of the page.Scrapbook layout featuring the Bliss Collection by Simple Stories Designed by Nathalie DeSousa | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine All those soft colors are the perfect background for this picture of my daughter in one of our walks at spring time.Scrapbook layout featuring the Bliss Collection by Simple Stories Designed by Nathalie DeSousa | Creative Scrapbooker MagazineI hope this serves as inspiration.

  1. What a stunning layout Nathalie! Welcome to CSM! …LOVE those feathers!

  2. Wow Nathalie – what a page! All of the little touches you added like the distressed top with the peeking tab, backing the feathers, the feathers themselves, and more – just really made the page perfect. Thanks for sharing!
