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!

Simple Stories: Full Bloom Springtime Gift and Pocket Folder Card

Brighten someone’s day with a sunny Springtime Gift! I created this gift set on Simple Stories LIVE a few weeks ago using the Simple Stories Full Bloom collection. CLICK HERE to watch!

Check the video description to download the FREE template for both the flower pot wrap and the Pocket Folder card, or click on the link below.

CLICK HERE FOR THE DOWNLOAD

The pocket folder card is perfect for tucking in a note along with a few packs of flower seeds. It would be perfect to use in the wintertime with hot cocoa packet as well …. Heck! How about using it for Apple Cider packets in the Fall?! Lots of possibilities with this one!

The flower pot is holding a cellophane bag of sour gummy worms. I created a ‘topper’ for the gummy worms using a striped paper drinking straw as the stick.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope this inspires you to spread a little ‘Spring’ to someone you know!

Simple Stories: Live Life in Full Bloom

What are your goals for your scrapbooking this year? Do you have an unfinished project you’d like to tackle? A number of pages you’d like to complete? Maybe you want to put together that vacation album?

If you haven’t caught on, my goal is to create at least one video each week. 🙂 I’ve also loved making Scrapbook Process Videos, but would love to know if there is anything else you’d like to see from me? Let me know!

This week is another scrapbooking process video featuring the Simple Stories Bunnies & Blooms collection. Click on the video below to watch, if that’s your thing. If not, you’re welcome to just scroll and see photos. 🙂 Either way, I’m so happy you stopped by to visit!

Have a great day!

Simple Stories: Bloom Process Video

Have you seen the NEW Bunnies & Blooms collection from Simple Stories? Even if you don’t have any Easter or Spring photos to scrapbook, the florals and ‘B’ side patterns make this collection a must-have! I am using it today to scrapbook these photos of my daughter and I enjoying lunch together at her elementary school for her birthday.

NOTE: Scroll down if you’d like to watch the process video for this layout!

Some page designs come together quickly for me, while others are a struggle. This was one of those pages that practically put itself together. LOVE when that happens! You can watch my process in the video below.

I thought the ‘Bloom’ title worked well for this birthday layout, since my daughter was blooming into a young lady. 🙂 I love the floral accents on the title pieces in this collection. This piece is from the Chipboard Stickers, but you can find even more in the pack of Foam Stickers. Yay!

The chipboard title, rose and butterflies add dimension to this project, but to add even more pizazz mix in additional dimensional embellishments like the shiny decorative brads and enamel dots.

The machine stitching and distressed paper edges add texture.

Within the last year Simple Stories has added ‘Tags’ and ‘Journal Elements’ papers to their line-up of cut apart sheets with each collection. I love the journaling options this gives for scrapbook pages. I almost always use a journal spot to write the details on my layouts. That way, if I mess up writing the information, I’m not ruining my entire page. I simply cut out another one and try again! And there are so many different styles, colors, and sizes to choose from on a single sheet. Awesome!

Isn’t the Bunnies + Blooms collection beautiful?! Would you use it to scrapbook Spring or Easter photos? Or would you use it as an ‘everyday’ collection like I did here? Tell me in the comments below!

Have a great day!
