Simple Stories Full Bloom ‘SPRING’ Banner

Hello, my friends! We are enjoying a ‘typical’ Spring here in Utah … cold and close to snowing one day, with 80 degree temperatures the next.

To add a little sunshine to my home over the past couple of months, I created a Spring Banner using the Simple Stories Full Bloom collection to drape across my mantle. It has been a happy sight … so much so that I decided to create one for Summer (this time with the Summer Lovin’ collection). Both of these are projects that I recently did on Simple Stories LIVE and are embedded below if you would like to check them out.

I also have some still shots of the Spring Banner. I’m waiting a week or so before I add the Summer Banner to my mantle, and I’ll be back with still shots of that project once it makes its debut over the fireplace.

Wishing you a creative day! See you again soon!

Simple Stories: Good Stuff Card Kit

In my last post I shared with you a Card Kit Organizer I created using the Simple Stories Good Stuff collection. Did you notice the coordinating cards in that post? Those were actually created with the coordinating Shine On Card Kit! Guess what? I design the card kits for Simple Stories … so, if you order one … it’s like ordering a card class from ME through the mail! Fun, right!

The card kit comes with full-color instructions, white pre-scored card bases, four sheets of pop-out die-cuts, and a 6×12 chipboard sheet to create EIGHT handmade, layered cards. You can ORDER THIS KIT HERE! And they are a BLAST to put together, if I do say so myself.

Want to get a better look at each of the completed cards? Keep scrolling for pictures!

Have a great day!

Simple Stories: Good Stuff Card Organizer!

I make lots of handmade cards, but you know what?! I am TERRIBLE at using them! For YEARS, I have wanted to come up with a system to get those cards out of the boxes I store them in and actually WRITE in them and then SEND them out to people … can you relate?

I decided to create a Card Organizer that will help me do just that. This binder isn’t necessarily a place to store all of the cards I make, but it *IS* a system for selecting those cards and putting them in a ‘queue’ (so to speak) ready to write in each month. Let me explain it a bit more.

I used the Simple Stories 6×8 Black Stripe Designer Binder as the base for this project. I then used a variety of colors of Color Vibe cardstock to create pocket pages to go inside the binder.

Watch the video for more information!

On the front of each pocket is a calendar card from the Simple Stories Good Stuff collection and a list for each day of the month.

The idea is to write birthdays, anniversaries, etc. on the list, and then place cards for those occasions inside the pocket … ready to be written on. I can then keep this binder on my desk, by my bedside, wherever! to write and SEND the cards from my stash each month. It will serve as a ‘transition spot’ for the cards in between my storage box and the recipient. Great idea, right?!

Here is a closer look at each pocket in the album.

Did you like this project? Do you think that you will make one for yourself?

Let’s put this project to use and become card-giving ROCKSTARS this year!

Until next time!

February SCT Sampler Layout with Simple Stories Happy Hearts collection!

The SCT Sampler kit is a small subscription kit that gives you a small ‘sampling’ from different manufacturers each time. I subscribe to the kit and enjoy getting a ‘taste’ of new collections each month.

(Click here for more information about the SCT Sampler Kit Subscription.)

I was invited to do a Facebook LIVE in the SCT Sampler Group in February (anyone can request to join … even if you don’t yet subscribe to the kit) and created the following layout featuring the darling Simple Stories Happy Hearts collection.

I used the heart dies that were included in the January Sampler kit to create the hearts around my page. I used scissors to cut away the inside of the hearts and then layered them on top of the different papers included in the kit.

The ‘Happy’ script die was included in the February SCT Sampler kit. I decided to use it for my title. I used the ‘Happy’ word as-is for the first word. For the second word in the title, I cut apart the letters from the die and re-fashioned them to spell the word ‘day’ (the ‘d’ is an upside down ‘p’).

The Doodlebug Design enamel hearts and dimensional bird stickers were the perfect accents to the Happy Hearts die-cuts included with my kit. It’s always a fun and creative exercise to see what I can create with just a few supplies.

If you’d like to watch my process of this page coming together, you can see it in the group at the link below (if you’re not yet a member of the group, just request to join).

The February SCT Sampler is no longer available, but I linked the products I used for this page in the list below, if you are interested.

Thanks for coming by! Happy Scrapping!
