Hi there Simple fans, Nancy here today with a look at the brand new Say Cheese II collection. The red, yellow, white and slate blue palette is one that I love and find myself reaching for again and again. It definitely has a theme park feel, but I’ve found that on second look it’s definitely versatile!
I began this page with one of my favorite photos and an idea for a shaker box. I used a chipboard frame from the Say Cheese II collection, stickers, star punch, patterned paper and a transparency to make a custom embellishment that adds movement and a punch of color to the layout.
To add texture, I used a sewing machine to attach a chipboard frame to the layout. Placing a plastic clip in the center of the frame adds dimension and a bit of a ‘flap’ to the area.
Say Cheese II is a practical collection that goes a long way. Here I used to scrapbook a layout about a cruise vacation. The bold colors compliment my photos without overpowering them.
To add a subtle title, I used a tone-on-tone effect with white lettering on a white background. I used a sewing machine to underscore each word in the title. This draws attention to the title and texture to the page. The overall design is a simple grid that came together very quickly. It’s a design that I use often when I’m stumped for ideas.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this peek at my favorite release this Winter – Say Cheese II!
Hi Everyone, Marie here today to share a new Life Documented project using the new I AM collection. I decided to change things up this year and switch to a 6x8 album to document our everyday moments.
I love the look of mixing different size pages and dividers within an album. The I AM collection has a lot of premade dividers, envelopes, and tags of different sizes and shapes. To carry it one step further I trimmed off the final column of one of the 2x2 page protectors to add even more variety to my album.
I tend to focus on my kids a lot in my albums, so for these first few pages I made sure to document the things that I'm doing right now. It was a good challenge for me, and the papers and embellishments in this collection really lend themselves to that.
The last couple of pages are about what I am reading/watching right now, and also what I am doing which is mostly a lot of organizing.
I hope you've enjoyed a peek into the start of my 2015 album. Have a great month!
Hello! Shellye along today with a set of cards using the beautiful new I AM... Collection. The collection is filled with all sorts of sweet sentiments, or if you prefer, use the pretty papers and embellishments to create an assortment of note cards!
For the first card I used a 3" and 4" circle die to cut the 6X6 patterned papers.
The circles were layered together with foam adhesive and black pom pom trim was adhered to the back of the larger circle and then attached to the card front.
The typewriter sticker was embellished with one of the cute clips, a label sticker and butterfly sticker. And I love that the new adhesive brads! A small strip of washi tape was applied to a scrap piece of paper and then added to the bottom.
The focus of this next card was the adorable chipboard frame!
The inset of the frame was filled with one of the smaller journal cards and then layered onto a black mat.
In keeping with the floral pattern on the frame, matching patterned paper (for the card base) and stickers were used. The gold foil chipboard pieces add just the right amount of glitz and shine.
Thank you for joining us today at Simple Stories!
Hello everyone! I'm Sara and I'm a part of the newly minted design team for Simple Stories digital products! I have been a long-time digital scrapbooker, in love with memory keeping, but not so much the mess. I got hooked on Simple Stories a few years ago when I tried my hand at pocket scrapbooing using paper products, so naturally I was thrilled to hear that Simple Stories has introduced digital collections!
