Roses are Red, Violets are Blue
Carpe Diem "Romance" is perfect
Valentine's Day is just around the corner. I am using the Romance Collection to add Love in my planner. I wanted to use my Black Blossom Personal Size Planner. I think it's a perfect combo.
I made this dashboard by using the 12x12 Sweetheart paper as the background. I then added some chipboard pieces. I cut out the 3x4 journaling card and I used "Happy Valentine's Day" as my main focus. I layered some papers that I cut out made into shape of a tag.
Be Mine Pocket Love
Did you plan something special for your love ones? I am hoping to go on a dinner date with my husband while my oldest son babysits our 2 year old daughter.
Here I cut out some of the 12x12 papers and added adhesive pockets so I can put some of the journaling cards.
Good morning Simple Stories fans! Nicole here today to share a project using the new Crafty Girl collection, released at 2018 Creativation just a few weeks ago!
I was inspired by so many things in this cheerful collection! I just love the fun mix of bright colors and had to use a lot on my project. I started with the awesome rainbow patterned paper and then added some smaller strips along each side of the page, including using some of the washi tape from the Crafty Girl collection along the right side of the page.
I couldn't help but use the Crafty Girl as part of my title too, so I had the chance to scrap a page about some of my favorite crafty peeps that I have the priviledge of knowing! So perfect to document those relationships in our lives, right?
I absolutely love the Live.Love.Create paper and had the urge to fussy cut out a ton of flowers and vines to embellish my project. A little bit of hard work goes a long way! I love how they brighten up the white on white diecut background I added using my digital cutter and file from Justnick.
Hello again, I’d like to show you how I set my Ivory A5 Carpediem planner up for January using the Sub Zero collection by Simple Stories.
As always I started by decorating the pockets using an assortment of the ‘bits & pieces’ and chipboard pieces. I also like to use some of the 12x12 papers which I cut down to fit, this ties in all the colours nicely.
The next thing that I do is make a dashboard, I cut my chosen 12x12 paper to size and use the Carpediemplanner A5 punch for the holes. Using the cut aparts is a great way to add detail to your dashboard.
I also made a pocket divider, it’s very simple to do. Use an existing divider to draw around as a template but leave the bottom with a few extra inches to fold up, then just punch the holes and use some double sided tape or glue on the sides of the pocket. These are useful to keep your stickers, journaling cards or like I’ve done, co ordinating paper tags which you can use to journal on, list make or even add some sticky notes too.
I hope you’ve enjoyed a peek inside my January planner, you can find more detailed pictures on my IG account https://www.instagram.com/heartsbyemma
Hi everyone! Tara aka Secretbees Studio! I have a new mini scrapbook to share today and it is a cutie! All of this cold weather has put me in the mood to scrap some winter photos with the adorable and charming 'Sub Zero' paper collection from Simple Stories! The bright colors, cute critters and fun motifs are perfect for preserving all of your winter adventures!
I created a staggered chipboard mini with some album builder Accu-Cut dies for lots of visual interest. This way you can see from one glance all of the colorful and snow-themed pages! Each page has a different shape and is covered in the fun patterned paper and then embellished to the hilt with all of the sweet chipboard, bits & pieces and sticker designs!
There is definitely a 100% chance of fun creating with this collection! I used it here to document a ski vacation our family took but it would also be wonderful to show off those fun snow days full of sledding, snowman building and snowball fights!
Hi Simple Stories fans !It's Lisa Dickinson here today with an easy technique for adding lots of color and pattern to a page - a bold border!
This fun, hand-drawn border is a free cut file from Juliana Michaels that I backed with several pattern papers from Simple Stories.
I chose a mix of striped, plaid and dot patterns (with plenty of color!) from the Cabin Fever and Life is Ruff collections.
I added some brad and sticker accents to a few of the circles for added dimension and texture.
In the upper right corner, a cluster of stickers, washi tape & metal accents complete the page.
As papercrafters, sometimes a paper collection comes along that makes you immediately think of a set of photos, an event, or a memory. When I saw the Romance collection, I knew some beautiful pictures of my son and daughter-in-law would work perfectly in an album.
