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?

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!
