Simple Stories Flea Market: Delightful

Hello, friends! I’m back again today with another Simple Stories Flea Market layout. Even though this collection is all about vintage flea market finds and being at home, I’m going to use it for an outdoorsy layout today.


This memory is from that dreadful COVID year of 2020. My kids had been home for over a month and were starting to get a bit stir-crazy from the monotonous day-to-day routine. My daughters decided to shake things up a bit by hanging our hammock in the forest next to our house. They spent HOURS out there talking, reading, scrolling on their phones, and just spending time together. It was a great way to find a silver-lining in being stuck at home.

The tag paper in each of the Simple Stories collections is one of my favorite papers. You can use the tags as is, flip them over to the back to use as a journaling or title block, or simply tuck them behind layers on your page as design elements. I’ve added three of them to the top of this design.

I layered together several little bits in the top-right corner of my main photo. Here you will find Journal Bits, a phrase sticker from the 12×12 Sticker Sheet, and foam hearts from the Foam Stickers. A snippet of the scallop border sticker (Cardstock Stickers) peeks out from behind the right edge of the photo for added interest.

I added more Journal Bits layered on the left side of the salmon library card, then added Floral Bits and two camera stickers to the left edge of the small photo.

More Floral Bits, as well as a sprinkle of Enamel Dots, adorn my Foam Sticker title. LOVE all the texture with the different types of embellishments here.

The candy colors and sweet florals of the Simple Stories Flea Market collection have been so refreshing and fun to play with this week! I hope you have enjoyed seeing my projects with this beautiful set of products.

See you again real soon!

Simple Stories Flea Market: Good Stuff Layout

I recently picked up the Simple Stories Flea Market collection and am loving the girly pink and teal color scheme. Today I am sharing my first layout with this collection. Let’s take a look!


My daughter was so excited when her Church Primary Class teacher invited her and her classmates to help out at her upcoming wedding reception as servers. My daughter has always wanted to help out at a wedding and now was her chance.

Since she was serving cake and clearing plates at the wedding, I thought the plate icons would make a fun embellishment for this scrapbook page about this event.

I fussy-cut several different plates from the Oh, Yes Please paper and grouped them along the bottom of my design. I also used a journal block from the Journal Elements paper.

On the right side of the photo, I layered together a couple of tickets from the Journal Bits. I stamped the date on one of them, then added staples as accents.

I used the ‘Good Stuff’ phrase from the Foam Stickers for a quick-and-easy title. The bright pink color repeats the color of my daughter’s dress in the photo.

A few Floral Bits interspersed between the fussy-cut plates break things up a bit. I also added some foam hearts (Foam Stickers) and clusters of enamel dots for texture and dimension.

I love the way all of the circular plates look along the bottom of this design. This would be a fun design to repeat with punched patterned paper circles or even flowers.

Thanks for coming by today! I hope you found some inspiration for your next scrapbook page!

February Hip Kits: Creating with the Nested Hearts Dies

Hello! I hope you are having a great start to the week. Today I am sharing a layout I created using the February 2023 Hip Kits. My assignment was to scraplift a fellow design team member with a focus on one of the products.

I chose to scraplift a beautiful layout by Anke Kramer. Click on the image below to watch the process video.

First, here is the layout by Anke that I used as my inspiration. She spent hours stitching over a design on a patterned paper featuring a series of circles. I decided to replace the circles with layered hearts, created with the February 2023 Nested Hearts Dies.

And here is my layout! Anke used a stencil to create a textured pattern on her white cardstock background. Since my paper already featured a tonal pattern, I opted to skip that step.

Anke stitched over the starburst pattern featured in the center of each of the circles. I let the stitching details of the Nested Hearts dies shine and simply used my sending machine to add a zig-zag stitch down the center of each stacked heart.

After deciding the placement of the hearts, I filled in the spaces with vellum die-cuts and flower chipboard pieces from the February 2023 Embellishment Kit.

I matted my photos with black and white floral paper, then added my title to the bottom left corner. Both the puffy alphabet stickers and the bird die-cut come from the February 2023 Main Kit. The title is sitting on a label die-cut from the February Embellishment Kit.

I used another label from the February Embellishment Kit for my journaling, then stamped the date using the date stamp from the January 2023 Pocket Life Kit. There are several years included on the stamp set, but I needed one for ‘2017’ … I simply combined the ’20’ and ’17’ together to create the right year. Easy peasy!

Finally, I finished off the page with splatters of watered-down white acrylic paint. This is ALWAYS the scariest part for me! I never know if it will ruin my page (that I just spent so much time creating), or complete it. Thankfully, this time, it felt like the perfect final touch. Whew!

Do you have the February 2023 Hip Kits at home? Come join us in the Hip Kit Club Facebook Group and share your creations! Even if you’re not a subscriber to Hip Kits [yet! … *wink*], it’s an inspiring place to hang out! All are welcome!

Hope to see you there!

Pinkfresh Studio Flower Market: Perfect Vision

Even though I have 10″ of snow on my front lawn, I am ready for some Springtime colors and florals! How about you?

Today I am using the gorgeous Pinkfresh Studio Flower Market collection for this layout about my daughter getting fitted for new eyeglasses. Check it out!


I chose to work with these photos because of the ‘Glasses’ patterned paper in this collection. I love all of the different styles of eyeglasses/sunglasses on that paper and knew I had to fussy-cut them to use as a page accent. (Come to think of it, they would be a great accent on a page about me aging and needing to wear readers now …. Hmmmm… already pondering my next layout. Ha!)

The other thing that drew me to the Flower Market collection was all of the beautiful flowers. If I see a collection that has a flower paper I can fussy-cut or a pack of flower die-cuts, it goes to my shopping cart!

I matted my photos on glitter paper to bring a different texture to the page. I think it shakes things up just enough to catch your eye. And, let’s face it, EVERY scrapbook page needs something sparkly, don’t you agree?

Flowers make the best fillers! You can see that I created several floral clusters in yellow, orange, and blue to accent each corner of my page.

I have a container in my scrapbook room where I toss in random bits and bobs left over from previous projects or scrapbook kits. Occasionally, I will take a look there to see if there is something I can add to my current project. This wood ampersand fits perfectly next to the ‘Happy Day’ phrase and finished off this cluster nicely. (I’m not sure who made it, I’m guessing it might have been from Freckled Fawn?)

I wanted something to finish off the bottom-right corner of the page. I pulled out my trusty banner punches from American Crafts and added a series of pennants peeking out from behind the photo block. So cute!

(The banner punches I used are no longer available, but HERE is something that will help you achieve a similar look.)

The fresh colors and cheerful florals of this collection were a delight to work with! You can find the Pinkfresh Studio Flower Market collection HERE at

Have a great day!
