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).

Simple Stories: Boho Baby … Not Just for Babies!

Sometimes a collection grabs our creative attention, not because of the theme … but because of the COLOR SCHEME!

Simple Stories Boho Baby collection is one that I couldn’t wait to play with. No, I do not have babies or grandbabies in my life currently … but the colors, patterns, and icons in this collection are versatile enough that they can be used for so much MORE than baby layouts.

Today I want to share a layout with you that I created with the Simple Stories Boho Baby collection featuring photos of my girls. Take a look!

I used the Born to Be Wild paper with the hearts as my background paper with it’s soft blush pink color … perfect for this page about two, silly sisters!

I added two Rainbow Bits and two tags from the Tags Paper to the top left corner … TWO for TWO sisters!

The Letter Stamps from this collection are a MUST-HAVE and paired perfectly with the dimensional foam ‘Sweet’ word sticker (Foam Stickers) for my title!

I accented the title with a foam bead garland sticker (also from the Foam Stickers), mini foam hearts and flowers, and a shiny Decorative Brad.

Another tag from the Tags Paper was a perfect spot to hold my journaling.

I hope this project has inspired you to look at themed collections in a new light. In fact! Why not challenge yourself to change up the theme of a collection in your stash this week. I’d love to see what you create!

See you again soon!

Simple Stories: Indigo Garden

Spring is in full swing here in Utah and that means the weather can’t decide what it’s going to do each day. LOL! In fact, just this morning we had snow. It’s melted now. Each day is a surprise in the Spring!

I have several projects that I have been creating for ‘Simple Stories LIVE’ that I would like to post here on my blog, so I will start with the most recent.

Last Friday I created a layout using the beautiful Simple Vintage Indigo Garden collection. I ADORE the colors in this collection. The navy, pink, sage, and yellow are swoon-licious! This page features photos of two of my daughters that we snapped of them on a Springtime drive in the mountains a couple of years ago.

I will post some detail shots below, but if you would like to watch the process of this page coming together, stop by the SimpleStories TV YouTube channel HERE!

I am in love with the Chipboard Frames. They are always a fantastic choice for framing out your favorite photos.

In the upper left corner of the page I tucked a doily from the Chipboard Clusters behind the photos to connect the two frames together and then tucked in butterflies and a floral piece from the Floral Bits & Pieces pack.

The large title piece is from the Page Pieces. The journal block is cut from the Journal Elements Paper. I then tucked in more butterflies and a floral stem from the Floral Bits, and added a few of the Layered Stickers.

A few more strips of patterned paper at the bottom of the page anchors the design. I LOVE the way that it turned out!

Thanks for stopping by today! Happy Spring to You!

Simple Stories: Happy Hearts Layout

Hello, my friends! Last month my husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. Woo hoo! I honestly can’t believe that we have been married for 25 years! How did we get here so quickly? Time really does fly when you’re having fun!

I wanted to create a ‘Then & Now’ type of layout commemorating our anniversary. I pulled out an engagement photo of my husband and I, then paired it with a recent photo of the two of us together. I used the Simple Stories Happy Hearts collection which was perfect! This collection is perfect for Valentine’s Day, but it also works great for everyday photos about the people and things we love.

LOVE

The inspiration for this page came from a challenge that we are working on in the Private Facebook Group for the Simple Stories 2022 GET CREATIVE! Retreat. The challenge was to incorporate 2 photos, 1 sheet of cardstock, 4 patterned papers, a sprinkle of hearts, a pinch of ribbon or washi tape, and a smidge of stamping.

After matting my photos on Robin’s Egg Color Vibe cardstock I wrapped a length of ribbon around the center. I incorporated washi tape by adding strips of it above and below the journaling blocks. CUTE!

For my stamping, I used the ‘All the Heart Eyes!’ phrase from the Happy Hearts 4×6 Stamps underneath my title. I also used an OLD Simple Stories date stamp at the bottom of my journal blocks.

You can see the ‘sprinkle of hearts’ in a variety of places around the page. I used a sticker with a cluster of heart-shaped balloons by the title, several foam hearts from the Foam Stickers, and then die cut and layered Color Vibe cardstock hearts in the bottom right corner of the page (Color Vibe Cardstock Colors: Flamingo, Apricot, Bubblegum).

The largest heart die was recently included in the January SCT Sampler. The other two smaller heart dies came from my stash (source unknown).

This was a fun challenge to do!

If you love challenges, scrapbooking, and scrapbook retreats … consider purchasing a ticket to the 2022 Simple Stories ‘GET CREATIVE!’ retreat. I will be teaching a class at the retreat, but I am also hosting the exclusive Private Facebook Group for Retreat attendees where we are having a bit of fun together while counting down the months until the retreat in September. Tickets are going F-A-S-T! Click on the image below to find out more!

Thanks for coming by today! Wishing you a happy week ahead!
