Hey Miss Pickles

Happy Saturday, friends!  Missy here.  I just LOVE bright and bold colors!  I think I'm truly in love with the new DIY Boutique collection from Simple Stories.  The patterns are so fun, and the colors are just so rich.  And there are SO many stickers to choose from...I wanted to use them all on one page...I had to restrain myself...haha!

I created this page earlier this week for a Word Wednesday Challenge.  The word was "Hey."  I just love this cute picture of my little Paige...she always looks like she's up to something.  We've always called her Miss Pickles, and we're always saying, "Hey, Miss Pickles" to her.  It just fits her :)

So I pulled out this gorgeous collection and went to work with layering and embellishing.  I created a messy and fun background with Dylusions sprays, gelatos, stamps and washi tape.  I love backgrounds like this because they're messy and random...very hard to mess up.  If you do, just stamp around it or add some paint splatters.

I used a Crafter's Workshop template to create the misted arrows on the page, and then stamped the other side onto the page to use up the rest of the mist.  Love the messy blobs of yellow it created.  I used lots of stickers, stamps and enamel dots.

More layering, stickers, thread and a sticker title included in the collection.  Isn't that green so pretty and bright?  I just love it.

More just creates such wonderful depth.  

I challenge you to get messy and create your own's really liberating to know that you made a unique design, and you also have more of your patterned paper to go around for your next project.  Plus, no one else will have the same creation :)

If you like what you see, come check out this collection HERE in the My Scraps Store!  

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

  1. I also love all the fun bright colors in this collection! And what a fun nickname for your daughter! I have a son named Dillon that we call "Dill Pickle". :)

  2. Super fun page, those colors are fantastic! My youngest son is named Nicholas, but he has earned the nick name ”pickles” because he too, is always getting into something! Too funny!
