Simple Stories: Hugs & Kisses Scrapbook Page

Each year my daughter gets excited to make treats for Valentine’s Day. This was the first year she made chocolate-dipped strawberries and she was so proud! This layout features the happy girl with her confection using the Simple Stories Heart Eyes collection. Watch the process video below!


One of the most fun parts of creating a layout for me is selecting the patterned papers that I want to work with. Since this page is about strawberries, the bright red paper made the perfect background color!

I first chose the teal emoji paper, the tiny smiling faces just make me so happy and we all know that teal and mint are my favorite colors and need to make an appearance on every layout I create, right?! I then added the striped paper and the white/black polka dot 6×8 paper to create a color-blocked band across the page.

Next, I pulled out the hexagon paper from the collection. I have been eyeing this paper, wanting to cut it up and use the hexagons on a page as embellishments … and that is exactly what I did here. I chose the hexagons that did not have any printed icons so that I could add die-cuts of my choosing.

For the title, I chose one of the Heart Eyes Foam Stickers. I tried something different today. I wasn’t too keen on all of the white space in between the letters of the premade sticker, so I took out my craft knife and non-stick scissors and cut out each letter. It’s a bit rough looking and I’m not sure I will do this again … but hey! it was worth a go! I’m hoping it won’t be too noticeable once the page is placed in a sheet protector in an album. Ha!

On the right side of the page, I added a waterfall of hexagons with more embellishments. I also picked out a few Journal Bits to play with. The pink library card holds my journaling. The television set is also from the Journal Bits; I added a gummy bear couple, the ‘XOXO’ sentiment, and a hot pink brad … don’t the little gummy bears look like they are part of a show? *giggle*

This page was a lot of fun to make and was a good reminder to me that I need to make some yummy treats for Valentine’s Day! Chocolate-covered strawberries sound JUST RIGHT!

Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!
