Scrapbook Process: Morning Routine

Four years ago, my good friend Becki Adams unexpectedly lost her sweet son, Austin, to an unknown heart condition. In honor of Austin, Becki and her family created ‘Austin’s Memorial Library Project’ where each year they collect books to donate to their local school. She also organizes a Scrapbook Process Video Hop in memory of Austin.

I am so honored that Becki invited me to contribute to this year’s video hop. Each participant has created a scrapbook layout about reading, learning, or school. I LOVE to read! In fact, I wake up early each day to read my scriptures and other favorite books.

Library Day was my FAVORITE day in Elementary School! I loved hearing our librarian read us stories and then wander among the aisles of bookshelves, looking for something special to check out that week.

For this project, I used the Simple Stories Farmhouse Garden collection. I love the color palette of blush, soft blue, with accents of soft black. I also loved the rooster images in this collection because of the subtle nod it gave to my MORNING routine.

For the title, I used the Simple Stories Black Foam Alphas along with a label from the Sticker Book. I used some older alpha stamps from my stash (Studio Calico) to stamp the word ‘routine’ on the label, then accented it with two silver mini brads.

The book dies are from KSCraft and can be found on Amazon by clicking HERE. I stamped the front of the smaller book with a tiny phrase from the Farmhouse Garden clear stamps.

I love collecting school-themed and office-themed scrapbooking products. I was happy that I got to use this Hero Arts Library Card Stamp & Die Set for my journaling block.

Thanks for coming by!

GET CREATIVE! May Color Challenge

For the month of May in the Simple Stories GET CREATIVE! retreat group, I issued a colorstory challenge. This is the layout that I create with a mixture of Simple Stories collection and embellishments from the Full Bloom collection.

To begin my design, I cut several scraps of paper into rectangles and layered them in a column.

The Full Bloom Floral Bits came in handy as I filled out the corner of each page. I also add die-cut clouds, chipboard sun, and Decorative Brads.

I love the POP of yellow from the Foam Stickers title. A little bird sings ‘hello!’ atop the letter ‘O’.

A few of the tags from the Tags Paper are layered together to hold the journaling.

Mix in some Coral, Grey, and Mint Color Vibe cardstock and you’re set!

Have a happy day!

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: 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.
