Hello everyone! It's Jennifer on the blog today to share a layout I  created using the beautiful Spring Farmhouse collection!  This by far is one of my favorite lines of this year; probably in my top five Simple Stories overall! The soft pastel pinks, greens, and yellows are perfect for springtime themed projects and I  love how the black and white gingham is mixed in!  I  documented favorite photos of my kids from a beautiful Easter day (when I  could still get away with dressing them in matching outfits!)

I   began with backing my white cardstock onto the beautiful floral print of Love A Lot. I  then adhered a 2x11 piece of the green gingham of Well Said to the center.  I  adhered and stitched through thin strips of the B side of So Blessed, pulling up on the edges to give it a distressed look. I  was then free to adhere my photos as well as this beautiful sentiment from the Bits and Pieces.  

The Bits and Pieces pack has a variety of shapes to accent your project such as the cute journaling spot I  used here.To accent, I  affixed one of the coordinating Enamel Dots to the center of the flower, as well as utilized a tiny heart sticker from the 4x6 Sticker sheets.  

I  did not want to overload the center of the page with too many embellishments so I  chose a few of the smaller circle stickers from the 4x6 Stickers as well as a floral cluster from the 6x12 Chipboard.


Using a hand punch in my stash, I  created a fun banner to adhere across my page using some of the great patterns in Spring Farmhouse! Using liquid adhesive, I  affixed some black/white bakers twine to the top of my banner to complete the look. I  also added two of the sentiment stickers from the Combo and 4x6 Sticker sheets.  You can also spy some of the fabulous Spring Farmhouse Washi Tape at the bottom. 

One of the many new additions to the embellishments are the Bow Clips! I absolutely adore these and love clipping one at the top of a photo! It adds so much dimension (and cuteness) to your project!

Hello! It's Jennifer on the blog today to share a layout I  created with the new Say Cheese 4 collection! I  was so excited to hear that Simple Stories was adding on to their Say Cheese line! What is even better is that all of the collections can be intermixed and used together! I originally was going to scrap some of our family vacation photos from this past fall to Orlando, but decided to  pull out some "vintage" pictures of me and my first trip to Disneyland!

I  love all of the new additions in embellishments this year including the Say Cheese 4 Chipboard Word Stickers! They make for great titles as I  used the "Magic" for my layout.  I  accented with some stickers from the Combo Sticker Sheet and 4x6 Stickers. I  also got out my Say Cheese Roller Stamp to add the line of hearts under my sentiments!

Say Cheese 4 also includes a pack of Tags and Frames which I  used to create a banner of sorts across my page! I  love the scallop red/white dot frame backed with a 3x4 Element that I  cut out. I  then added some typed journaling to the center as well as popped up a geotag sticker at the bottom.

Another fun addition of embellishments are these Bow Clips! You receive four different prints in a pack which are great for sliding under a photo or at the top of a page!

To create a colorful background on my white cardstock, I  used the new Magic Dots 6x6 Stencil with some yellow Distress Oxide ink! I  then used some spray ink to splatter reds and blues to my background as well as added some enamel dots from my stash.

I  adore this die cut from the Bits and Pieces pack and thought it would look cute at the end of my frame!

Hello! It's Jennifer on the blog today! I'm so excited to share a page I  created with the new Spring Farmhouse collection! There is so much to love about this line from the floral prints to the fun embellishments! And it can be used for just about any theme project! Spring Farmhouse was perfect to scrap an older but favorite photo of my niece playing in my grandparents' garden.

I  began with trimming a piece of white cardstock to 11x11 inches. I  then adhered it to the beautiful floral of Live Simply and stitched around the edges to finish. For my title, I  used the "bloom" script from the Combo Sticker sheet which has numerous sentiments and beautiful florals to accent your project. You can also spy some of the pink gingham Washi Tape that is included in the collection! I  love adding small swatches to break up white space or accent my photos.

Using my electronic die cut machine with white cardstock, I  cut this floral wreath to adhere around my photo (Floral Wreath by Wild Pilot #275492) I  chose the green/white dot print of Plant Smiles and small floral of the Spring Farmhouse 2x2 Elements to back the intricate spaces of the flower. I  then added smaller embellishments from the 4x6 Sticker sheet and Bits and Pieces to accent. 

The Spring Farmhouse Bow Clips are a wonderful addition to the embellishments! You receive four in a package so there are plenty left over for additional projects! I  chose the black gingham Bow Clip to accent the top corner of my photo

The Bits and Pieces pack always includes fun journaling spots such as the deco shape shown. I  then layered flowers from the Combo Sticker sheet as well as a fun black gingham chipboard heart!  You can also see that Enamel Dots have returned! I  love sprinkling them around my pages because they give dimension and color!

I  again used the pink gingham washi tape at the top of my page as well as added additional flowers around my wreath. I  love this little sentiment found in the Bits and Pieces; I  thought it would go perfect with my photo
