Oh happy day!  If you have a dreamer in your life (or maybe you are one too?) you are going to love the new Dream Big Collection from Simple Stories.  It’s filled with rainbows unicorns, fairies, mermaids and so much more!

Simple Stories has pulled out all the stops so there’s lots and lots to play with.  Printed and die cut Bits and Pieces, thick Chipboard Stickers, and pattern papers that will make you sigh with contentment! 

The papers are easy to mix and match because they’re perfectly coordinated.  You can find inspirational sentiments on the sticker sheet that’s included in the Collection Kit paper pack. I adore the colorful round sparkles that make great accents for all the images… fairy dust  for the pixies or bubbles for the mermaid.

I think this collection is so much fun ! I know it’s going to delight the young ladies in my life, but I know a few grown ups that would be just as happy to receive one of these cards!  Who doesn’t love to shine?

With this collection anything is possible.. ride a unicorn, fly with faeries, and make some magic with a mermaid.


Is there a rough and tumble Lil’ Dude in your life?  Then you need to check out the newest collection from Simple Stories called Lil’Dude!   It’s got all things boy.. think dinosaurs, robots, puppy dogs, and race cars!

The collection includes everything you need for cards, layouts and so much more including pattern paper, stickers, cardstock stickers, journaling card “elements” and die cut “bits and pieces”.

I love the bright bold rainbow colors with contrasting accents of black and pastel sky blue.   The reverse side of some of the card stock sheets have journaling cards too.  I used this one with the “Lil’Dude” sentiment as the focal point on my card.

What a fun way to tell you’re little guy that you think he’s awesome!   The chipboard sticker robot is totally rad!  No adhesive foam tape for this guy – the chipboard is thick enough to add dimension without it. 

The kiddos grow up fast so you better gobble up this collection while you can!


Jeanne here today and I’m so excited to be sharing four cards made with the new Oh Baby! Collection!  This collection is perfect for celebrating the new addition to the family whether it’s for baby’s shower or a warm congratulations.


The collection is a beautiful mix of pastels – the pink, blue, yellow and green you’d expect with a touch of neutral woodgrain.    The papers are perfectly coordinated for mixing and matching so you’ll be able to use every last scrap!

The collection is complete with paper, stickers, bits & pieces, chipboard and washi tape.   You can decorate to your hearts content making banners, cupcake decorations, pinwheels and so much more.  I love all the little animals and florals in the set.

If you’re the expecting Mom you’ll want to have plenty in your stash to document every special memory from the baby shower to all of baby’s firsts!

I can’t wait to hear some happy news so I can share these pretty cards and all my best wishes for a wonderful life!
