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 Treat Boxes & Card Kit

Some of the FUN things I get to do for my job is to make ‘How To’ videos, Livestreams, and design products. Today, I thought I would share a few of those things with you here!

If you missed my Happy Hearts Treat Box tutorial for Simple Stories, you can check it out on the Simple Stories Facebook Page or YouTube channel. These EASY treat boxes take one sheet of 8-1/2″ x 11″ sheet of paper. You can create several ahead of time and store them flat. They are so fun to make and are perfect for Valentine’s Day gift-giving, party favors, and MORE!

Scroll down a bit for the video that includes all of the scoring diagrams to create a few of these for your friends and family!

As I mentioned above, I also design a few products for Simple Stories. Namely, the Card Kits and Page Kits that coordinate with each collection.

These are all-inclusive kits that are so EASY and FUN to put together! I do my best to make sure that the sentiments are ones that you can use ALL YEAR round. For example, on the ‘Feb 14’ card below, I have also included the sentiment ‘so cute’ in the kit, so that you can use in place of the ‘Feb 14’ if you want to use it for another time of year.

Pictured below is the Happy Hearts Card Kit that coordinates with the Happy Hearts collection. If you have tried one of these kits, I would LOVE to hear your thoughts!

You can make these cards, too, by picking up the CARD KIT HERE. Enjoy!

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. Tickets are going F-A-S-T! Click on the image below to find out more!

Thanks for coming by today! Wishing you a happy week ahead!

Simple Stories: Our Story is My Favorite

With four children and several commitments, like most couples, my husband and I can have a hard time finding one-on-one time with one another. But the great thing is when we do have time together we just pick up right where you left off. I feel lucky and blessed to have built a life with my best friend and wanted to record my feelings on this page using the beautiful Simple Stories Kissing Booth collection.

The florals in this collection are incredible! I fussy-cut the largest floral from the Always Be True paper to accent the top left corner of my photo.

I cut out the “LOVE” tiles and the “Every Love Story” quote from the 4×4 Elements paper to use as a title and subtitle, accenting them with Bits & Pieces die cuts and stickers from the Combo Sticker sheet.

I placed everything on a large block of Love Day paper (pink text) and then capped off the top and bottom with strips of the black and white ticking stripe from the 4×6 Vertical Elements paper. I cut the bottom strip with a pair of large scalloped scissors that I have in my stash. I then added computer-generated journaling strips below.

This Valentine’s Day be sure to grab a selfie with your sweetheart and then use the Kissing Booth collection to create a page about how thankful you are to have that person in your life!
