Hey Miss Pickles

Happy Wednesday!  Have you tried any of the new DIY Boutique collection from Simple Stories yet?  Okay, I'm seriously in love with it!  I knew I had to have every single piece of it the moment I laid eyes on it!  The mega bright colors....SO right up my alley!  And there's a TON of stickers that go along with all sorts of shapes and sizes.  I used just a fraction of it here on this page.

This layout was created a few weeks ago for a Word Up Wednesday challenge over at My Scraps and More.  The word to use was "hey."  I love scrapping everyday photos, and this random little photo of my Miss Pickles was just perfect :)

I used a stencil and lots of Dylusions on this.  They have such a bold and vibrant color.  I love the bright pops of color they give!  Perfect for this collection.  After I used the stencil, I flipped it over and used it as a stamp to get the excess color off it.  I added in lots of stamps and washi tape.  Then I used random goodies from the collection...stickers, enamel dots, many fun doo dads!

Even this cute die-cut title is a sticker, along with the arrows.  There's even chipboard!  Be still my heart!

I added in bright thread here and there for even more pops of color.  I like to spread each color around the page, and adding the thread is an easy way to add a certain color where it's needed.  To me, it just balances the colors out all around the page.

One more shot of the yellow.  I use this triangle stamp from Glitz all the time...I just love it.

I hope this somehow inspires you to GO BOLD with your colors!  I just can't get enough of them.  You can purchase these goodies at the My Scraps Store...and you can get 20% off using the code JUNEBUG20.  Sounds like a great deal to me!

Thanks for stopping in today!
