May Guest Designer Ana Cabrera Moses

Hello Simple Stories fans, Layle here with you today :)

I'm excited to introduce you to our April guest designer Ana Cabrera Moses -

Here's a little bit about Ana

Hey there fellow craftees! I am Ana, aka the Coconutgoddess: that sleepless, indefatigable craft-binging former chef, who rocks to country music, indulges in karaoke singing, and is addicted to my app filled iPhone, zombies and comic books (Hawkeye hits the bullseye). That said, I worship everything and anything pink, paper and glittery (my professional kryptonite, sparkle sparkle).  I live in Happy Valley, Utah with my three precocious daughters, Sierra, Savannah, and Sedona, our mischievous chihuahua Spock, and my new “Mr.” Matthew. I have worked in the crafts industry for over a decade and started scrapbooking 20 years ago. A Social Marketer by day, hot mama by night, you can often find me scrapping into the wee hours of the dawn or perusing the latest happenings on the interwebs. I love to incorporate bits of my digital e-life into my scrapbooks and my digital cutter is one of my most beloved tools. Interested? Of course you are! You can find all the latest happenings on my blog Craftification or on Instagram!

My approach to creating layouts is simple.. PLAY!

I love the simple stories approach that takes the work out of keeping memories. Being a newlywed and mother to three teenagers leaves me little time. So when I scrapbook I want it to be fun! 

I almost always start by cutting out oodles of my favorite Silhouette Simple Stories cut files on my Silhouette Cameo. This way I don’t have to stop and start while creating.

Use some of your “leftover” die cut words with a sprinkling of sequins to make lovely sparkle pockets. 

A sister post to this one will be live on my blog today where you can see more additional pages in this fun Simple Stories burlap SN@P! Binder! 

Here's a list of the different fun Simple Stories Silhouette cut files I used -
