Simple Stories DIY | Mid Week Mojo Petunia #3

Petunia - Week 3 of 10

New to Mid Week Mojo? Get started here!

I came to a realization a few weeks ago, almost six weeks ago to be exact. I am finally embracing the fact that I am a great aunt. The first time I became a great aunt was actually 15 years ago, but I always thought it made me sound old so I pretended I was just an aunt. Just over a month ago, I became a great aunt for the 7th time when awesome little Xander came into our family. I just couldn't resist creating a layout to honor this little peanut. the Simple Stories DIY Collection was perfect to use for today's Mid Week Mojo and this picture of Xander. The neutral pieces with the bright pops of color help make this photo shine.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I love how all of the bases are so neutral. With graph, notebook, or type card bases and kraft paper embellishments you could add any of your favorite embellishments. The burlap stickers add great texture while the bright colors keep your interest.

The letter stickers are awesome, so many colors to choose from. The photo stickers are great to add on your photos or your journaling cards.

I probably would have used this lower card as my journaling card, however since this baby isn't actually mine I decided to just fancy it up a little bit.

While this product is definitely perfect for your pocket-style layouts, I love to use them on a traditional 12x12 as well.
