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!

Scrapbooking with a Sketch & the Simple Stories Full Bloom collection!

Raise your hand if you like scrapbooking sketches! I created the following sketch as a challenge for the Simple Stories GET CREATIVE! Retreat group. Each month leading up to the September Retreat we issue a challenge to help attendees ‘Get Creative!’ Would you like to give this sketch a try?

We kick off each month with a live stream. As a part of the livestream, I use the challenge to create my own project … LIVE! This time I used the Full Bloom collection. Here is the layout I made!

I love the happy colors of the Full Bloom collection … I could scrapbook with these colors forever!

And who doesn’t love adding a cheerful sun , puffy clouds, butterflies and bees to a page?!

I used the Cream Grid paper for my journal spot, then build a title with the Foam Stickers (my favorite!).

Decorative Brads and Enamel Dots are a MUST as well!

Thanks for taking a look!

Simple Stories: Indigo Garden Layout

Do you ever see a paper collection and it immediately takes your breath away? That feeling happens to me at work every time a new Simple Stories collection crosses my desk for proofing. But when I first saw the Simple Vintage Indigo Garden collection, the color combination just spoke to me. The navy along with the shades of pink, sage green, and butter yellow were something I couldn’t wait to create with!

Today I have a layout to share with you using the Indigo Garden collection. This was a layout that I created while doing a Simple Stories LIVE several weeks ago. I have linked that live stream below if you would like to watch.

The starting point for this layout were the Chipboard Frames for the Indigo Garden collection. They are a great way to highlight favorite photos, and these photos are some of my favorites of these two girls of mine.

I layered the Chipboard Frames up with a Chipboard Cluster, Floral Bits, and several patterned papers. Butterflies are a must as well!

To finish up the page, I used several Layered Stickers, then sprinkled clear gems here-and-there. I LOVE the result!

Have you tried the Chipboard Frames yet?

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!
