Hello and happy Monday to you! It's Jennifer on the blog to share another awesome Simple Set!  For my page, I  used the new Dad Life collection! Don't you love the colors and prints? The blues and oranges go so well together which are perfect for just about any masculine themed project! I  began with a white cardstock background and added a pie chart cut file with the B side of My Hero.  I  then filled in the "pie pieces" using the other fun prints (my favorite is the plaid on the B side of the 3x4 & 4x6 Elements!). 

From the Dad Life 6x12 Stickers, I  affixed the #1 Dad sentiment with pop dots at the bottom of my photo. I  also added two of the cute heart stickers to accent! 

I  cut apart two of the 3x4 Elements and layered them to the left of my photo. Again I  used some of the stars and hearts from the sticker sheet to accent. The 6x12 Stickers also have three rows of sentiment stickers such as the ones I  placed underneath the 3x4 Element. 

On the outside of my circle, I  used more of the star and heart stickers as well as enamel dots from my stash!  You can also see that I  added some stitching to the outside edges of the cut file using my sewing machine. 

I  left my top "pie piece" empty so I  could add journaling.  Using additional white cardstock and my typewriter, I  adhered my strips to fit the space.

Hello!  It's Jennifer here today to share a layout I created with the new Let Freedom Ring Simple Set! This collection has the traditional patriotic colors along with a beautiful woodgrain and ginghams! I scrapped an old photo from when I graduated Army basic training but you can use Let Freedom Ring for 4th of July or Memorial Day! 

I began with using the blue/white star print of the B side of Independence Day and a fun star circle cut file. I used the remainder of the patterns to back the negative spaces of the larger stars.  To accent, I used a few of the star stickers from the 6x12 Sticker sheet popping a few up with foam tape. 

For my title, I utilized the cute "USA" letter stickers and placed it at the top of my journaling spot. I  just love that the three letters have different prints!  

The 3x4 and 4x6 Elements have a lot of adorable cut aparts including the one I used here! I typed up my journaling as well as added one of the floral clusters and sentiments from the 6x12 Stickers. 

I'm always a big fan of banners so I was excited to see this cute, but simple sticker banner! I used foam tape to adhere the banner across the bottom of my photo to help break up some of the white space. I finished my page by adhering strips of All American and Independence Day at the top and bottom. I stitched through with my sewing machine, as well.  

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope this inspires you to do some creating with this fun, new Simple Set! Have a great day!


Hello friends! It's Jennifer with you today to share a layout I  created using the very fun Oh, Happy Day collection!  The bright patterns and whimsical embellishments are perfect for just about any theme or project! I  feel, too, that its a bit girly without being over the top!  I  scrapped photos of my teen daughter at her last birthday (and yes that is a Peppa Pig headband!) LOL

One of the many new additions to the larger Simple Stories lines is the Simple Basics Kit which includes coordinating solid papers.  I  don't know about you but I  rarely have matching cardstock so I'm very appreciative of this!  For my base, I  started with the Fuchsia from the Oh Happy Day Simple Basics Kit.  I  then added some strips of bright patterns at the bottom and stitched through with my sewing machine.  For my title, I  utilized the black script words from the 6x12 Chipboard.  You can also spy some of the coordinating Washi Tape which is a great way to accent your pages!

I  matted my photos with white cardstock along with backing them with patterned paper or a solid from the Simple Basics Kit.  I'm a fan of layering not only for additional color but also dimension.  I  snipped a portion of the border sticker on the Combo Sticker sheet and placed it in a spot between photos. Using pop dots, I added this fun die cut sign from the Bits and Pieces pack which includes a large variety of shapes and sentiments!

One of my favorite things about Oh Happy Day is the floral clusters!  I  used a few on my page around my photos and title.  Of course, I  pop dots were involved! The collection has many in the Bits and Pieces pack as well as on the Combo Sticker sheet!  

Adding small stickers or die cuts at the top of a photo is a nice way to accent without being overbearing.  The little birds are adorable plus my daughter is a bird lover so I  had to add one to her page. I  also added a smaller flower with a pop dot as well.
