Simple Stories Designer – Wendy Antenucci
Our Simple Stories designer is Wendy Antenucci – we are thrilled to have her showcase her work today on Paper Crafter’s Library. You can see Wendy’s fabulous project below, but first, here is a little more about her:
I started scrapbooking shortly after my first child was born in 2002. I am a SAHM and homeschooler so I tend to scrap during my kids rest time as it helps clear my mind and get me through the rest of the day. My style is simple, but I love to layer and look for the perfect way to embellish my pages that connect with the memory I am telling.
I design for Simple Stories, Hip Kit Club, Anna Griffin, and CREATE magazine. I have been published in Creating Keepsakes, Cards, Create, Scrapbook Trends, Scrapbook & Cards Today, PaperCrafts & Scrapbooking, Scrap365, and various online publications.
Today I want share a layout using the new Simple Stories I AM collection. When I begin my layouts I look for some sort of item that really catches my eye, for me that would be the I AM Everyday Sn@p! card. I used a few more Sn@p cards to create this “easy” layout.
If you were pressed for time this would be a great place to stop and just add some journaling, or maybe you’d like to try a few more pieces to create a “medium” layout. For this step, I added in some layers using the frames. I took the backing off the peach color frame to allow the frame to be layered behind the banner piece. I also added in some small frames with more pictures.
Again, a relatively easy layout using mainly the Sn@p! cards and chipboard pieces so far. A lot of times I will stop and look at my layouts at this point to decide how I can further dress up my layout while using items that support my theme.
So, I switched out my Sn@p! card and added in a black border making a visual triangle of black. I also matted my layout on a coral color paper for added interest. A few Bits & Pieces were scattered around to add pops of color and tell about my story. A chipboard key added in a visual triangle of chipboard items. And a few of the new wood veneer pieces finished my page to create a “detailed” page.
Here are a few close-ups of the details I added:
While the details are nice, remember the most important thing is to tell your story. So have fun and get the story in your books for the future!
