I am as EXCITED as can be to announce that I am the new Marketing Coordinator for Simple Stories. Simple Stories is a LONG time favorite brand of mine and I am THRILLED to be joining their team! Kevin and Amber Crowell, the owners, as well as the rest of their team, are as passionate about paper as you and me and make THE CUTEST products on the planet! I am so happy to be working with them!
What does that mean for my blog?
Of course I will continue to share my creations here and as you can expect, there will be LOTS of Simple Stories projects. YAY!!!!
That being said, I do have a few loose ends to tie up with the design teams I have been a part of and will post those projects here over the next couple of weeks. I have been incredibly fortunate to work with so many amazing manufacturers over the years and am thankful for the opportunities they have each given me to design with their beautiful products. It is these companies and these people that make the papercrafting community such a wonderful place to be!
I have also had something really fun in the works since November (before my new position with Simple Stories came into the picture) that I am finishing up. I should be able to tell you all about towards the end of May or beginning of June … as soon as it is ready. I’m really hoping you will LOVE it!
Thank you for reading my blog and for your continued support! I love paper, and I love the PEOPLE who love paper! Let’s keep celebrating this wonderful hobby together!
Have you checked out the latest Simple Sets by Simple Stories
? With six papers (2 each of 3 designs) and a coordinating 6×12 Sticker Sheet, they are the perfect solution for a quick project or two!
Today I am working with the Springtime Simple Set
. Butterflies and flowers are not only perfect for Spring, but work great for everyday memories, as well. This page is about my daughter achieving recognition in her writing class at college. Definitely, a “bloom where you’re planted” moment for her!
Butterflies are a perfect symbol for growth and transformation, as well as following your own path. I fussy-cut the butterflies from the 3×4 & 4×6 Elements Paper
and then adhered them to the page with foam squares as embellishments.
I layered several of the stickers
together in this embellishment cluster, anchoring them with strips of patterned paper across the bottom and a scribble-style circle that I die cut using my electronic die cutting machine.
On the opposite side of the photos I used several patterned papers from my scrap bin and some metal dies from my stash to create a pair of dimensional flowers.
I hope this page will help my daughter remember to always celebrate her accomplishments! There is so much in our lives to be grateful for!

Faith, trust, and pixie dust! Set out on a card making adventure with the Lost In Neverland collection! I sat at my desk to play with this collection and couldn’t stop. I have six “Darling” cards to share with you today.
Tinkerbell, herself, is here to take you on your magical journey! I cut her out using the Tinkerbell die set with shimmer cardstocks by Carta Bella Paper. I doubled up her vellum wings to allow her to flutter about.
The Peter Pan Ephemera tag is captain of the Jolly Roger on this card. Just use your imagination and think happy thoughts and you will be on your way to dreamland!
For this card I created a waterfall of circles with a scene. I love how you can almost follow the story line as you follow each picture from top to bottom.
I anchored the Lost Boy sticker, along with the teepee, on a series of concentric punched circles for a simple, yet striking design. A sprinkling of enamel dots adds dimension and shine.
I used the Hello Baby Boy Shining Stars embossing folder to emboss a night sky on Navy Shimmer cardstock for the background of this card. I love how the Darling children are holding hands as they experience pixie dust for the first time. A tiny, chipboard Tinkerbell provides a never-ending supply of fun.
Stacked, die cut rectangles anchor the characters on this fun card. How cute is Sleeping Nana drifting in the top left corner?!
I hope you enjoyed this trip to Neverland today! What magic will you be creating in your craft room this week?
