Simple Stories + KBS: Day 6


Can you believe that we have come to our last and final day of this wonderful team up week? I hope you have been just as inspired as I have by all these incredibly talented ladies!

But we still have one more to see here at KBS and at Simple Stories…and that would be from Nichol Magouirk!

I do believe Nichol has captured the essence of her summer on this two-page spread with these thirty-one photos. Thirty-one, I said! This is the reason I love photo templates. Because you can use a ton of your photos on one  page (or two). It keeps things centered and focused and clean and allows you to share so many memories!

What a great mix of all the fabulous foo foo of diecuts with elements from Good Day Sunshine and DIY. And I really like the title cut from that black word paper.

Such a fun layout!

Here’s what Nichol has to say:

I love layouts that tell a story over a period of time, like an entire vacation or event all on a single layout spread. In this case I created a 2-page layout showcasing favorite photos from an entire month. I love how Kerri’s photo templates make it so easy to add lots of photos to a page yet keeps the design clean and simple. With so many photos/photo templates on my page I went with a white on white background (I used one of Kerri’s Background Basics designs die cut from a 12×12 sheet and layered over another white sheet of cardstock for subtle texture). I made the title big and bold, die cutting it and layering it with lots of great bright papers from the Simple Stories Good Day Sunshine and DIY Collections. To give my layout interest, I embellished with lots of little “bits and pieces” from the Simple Stories Good Day Sunshine and DIY sticker and chipboard sheets. The journaling is printed on a sheet of Simple Stories Good Day Sunshine ledger paper and tucked under the edge of one of the photo templates.

What a wonderful week.

Just fabulous.

Be sure to check out today’s page on Simple Stories too!

Now, if you were wanting to get any of the designs shared this week, don’t forget the sale that ends Sunday night. It includes classes too, so if you were wanting to learn more about your Silhouette? Now would be a good time to pick up a class or two!


Thanks again to everyone who participated this week!
You’ve truly been amazing!

    I’ve been doing collages of various events so what so glad to see Nichol’s LO. She’s so creative. I agree, it is difficult to display a lot of pics without looking too cluttered–she does it perfectly. Thanks for a great week with SS.

    Oh this layout just makes my shopping list from your store even longer! I love the title the best and the sunshine cutout, and the photo templates are a must, because I love to always use as many photos as I can. Love this double layout for so many reasons.
