Scrapbook.com sent me one of the freebies to work with ahead of time. Here is the 6×6 paper pad I received!
Here is what I created!
When my youngest daughter was three years old she loved to sort and set up her toys all over the house in little vignettes. On this particular day she set each one of her favorite toys on their own step of the staircase leading up to her room.
This page is fun because it not only documents the quirky habits of my daughter as a three-year-old, but some of her favorite toys at that age. I don’t know about you … but I wish I had pictures of some of my favorite childhood toys! 🙂
Everything on this page is created from the 6×6 Simple Stories Vintage Bliss paper pad with the exception of the white cardstock background, the large brad accenting the title and the black journaling pen.
The butterflies were fussy-cut from one of the papers and then popped up with foam squares as embellishments.
I cut strips of the patterned paper to look like washi tape at the top of each photo.
I used a tip by Crafty Jen Schow (from one of her videos) to handcut letters for a large title. I outlined each letter with a black pen to give it more definition and then wrote my journaling below.
I loved the challenge of using just one 6×6 paper pad on a scrapbook page. Why not challenge yourself to do the same?!

Thanksgiving is over and that means the Christmas decorations start going up today! Yay! In honor of the transition, I thought I would share a Christmas layout with you today using the Simple Stories Very Merry collection.
I began this page with the realistic wood background ‘Tis the Season paper. The pre-printed holiday greenery at the top caught my eye and I thought it would be something new and different to work with!
The shots on this page are some quick ones I took on my cell phone on the way out of the “Scrooge” play from a couple of years ago. The lighting wasn’t great, but this paper collection sure helps to add holiday flair where it is lacking in the photos. 🙂
… and then sprinkled other black die cuts/stickers around the page in the other clusters to carry that dark color throughout.
It’s no secret I love flowers, and couldn’t resist using them in each of the clusters on this page as well.
