Hi there!

Nathalie with you today, bringing you some inspiration just in time for Valentine's Day.   And what better way to document your especial one than to use the beautiful Simple Stories's "ROMANCE" collection.

All the floral motifs in the Romance collection are beautiful, so a bit of fussy cutting was all that was needed to create the clusters that frame the picture of my husband and I on our Thanksgiving walk.

Since the picture of us was taken at a bridge, I was inspired to continue the pattern of the formation onto the background of this page.   There are so many beautiful embellishments in this collection, that it was so easy to combine them to create the title for this page.

The collection is perfect to document all those special moments in your life, not just Valentine's Day.   Remember to check the collection, you will love a bit of "ROMANCE" in your life.

Remember to contact me if you have questions on how this came together. Take care.


Hello everyone and happy February!   I am here today to show you how I used the Romance line to bring a little love to my planner.  As usual, I started off making a simple dashboard using the Hello Love  12 x 12 paper and elements from the 12 x 12 Cardstock Sticker Sheet.

I used the Forever Washi Tape down the center of the pages for my weekly layout and started building up the layers from there.  I was in love with the bunting sticker on the 12 x 12 cardstock sticker sheet so I cut it apart and used it across both pages.  I stuck down some larger elements from the Bits and Pieces pack for important events during the week and also my flight information for a weekend trip.

I utilized so many of the functional stickers from the 4x6 stickers to create layers on the page and call attention to the various appointments and events I had during the week.

Since I was travelling over the weekend I didn’t have too much to put in my planner (sometimes I like to travel without a set schedule) I wrote in the few events my daughter would attend while I was away and filled the remaining space with more stickers from the 12 x 12 Sticker sheet.


Hello its Jennifer and I'm back to share another page I  created using the Romance collection!  There is so much about this line to love: from the die cut hearts to the delicate floral prints!  For my second layout, "XOXO", I  did a traditional Valentines page and documented photos of my children from their classroom parties. These are definitely sweet memories for me since both kids are out of elementary school!

I  love to cluster my smaller embellishments together such as the die cut hearts from the Bits and Pieces pack. You can also see one of the gorgeous floral clusters from the Combo Sticker Sheet.  I  have always been a dimensional scrapper and use pop dots with my die cuts, as well as mix in chipboard pieces such as the small butterfly. One of the many reasons why Simple Stories rocks is the variety of embellishments! I  love having choices!

How cute are these  "XOXO" letters that are found on the 6x12 Chipboard sheet?  They make for a great title accented with coordinating stickers and chipboard pieces!

​One of the 4x6 Sticker sheets has small "washi" type strips of patterns that are perfect to layer! Here, I  used two along with the Forever Washi Tape to accent my photo followed by stitching through with my sewing machine!

​Thank you for stopping by today! What is your favorite embellishment from the Romance collection?
