Good morning Simple Stories fans! Nicole here today to share a project using the new Crafty Girl collection, released at 2018 Creativation just a few weeks ago!

I was inspired by so many things in this cheerful collection! I just love the fun mix of bright colors and had to use a lot on my project. I started with the awesome rainbow patterned paper and then added some smaller strips along each side of the page, including using some of the washi tape from the Crafty Girl collection along the right side of the page. 

I couldn't help but use the Crafty Girl as part of my title too, so I had the chance to scrap a page about some of my favorite crafty peeps that I have the priviledge of knowing! So perfect to document those relationships in our lives, right?

I absolutely love the  Live.Love.Create paper and had the urge to fussy cut out a ton of flowers and vines to embellish my project. A little bit of hard work goes a long way! I love how they brighten up the white on white diecut background I added using my digital cutter and file from Justnick.


Good morning Simple Stories fans! I am excited to share a fun project using the new Life is Ruff simple set! We got a new puppy this past year, so this simple set is perfect to document a few photos of our new addition Chase!

I was inspired by the Ruff Ruff paper in the collection - all those fun word bubbles were just meant to be fussy cut out! I decided to cut a title for my page from a design from the Silhouette store and then added in a lot of fussy cut word bubbles to finish off the page!

I tried to mix up all the different colors and direction of the word bubbles as I went along the page, popping some up with foam adhesive and adhering some just as is!

I couldn't resist adding in some of the dog icons from the cardstock sticker sheet in the simple set - they mixed so well in with the fussy cut word bubbles! I popped up some of those too along the way.


Good morning Simple Stories fans! Nicole here to share a quick wintery project using the Oh What Fun collection!

I just love the non-traditional colors in this collection and lucky for me, they went perfectly with a photo I had of my daughter playing in the snow last winter!

I diecut some tags from some pennant shapes by Simple Stories in the Silhouette store and added them along each side of the photo. I love how they add little pops of color along the white areas around the photo! It was easy to easily mix up different patterns and colors from the collection too !

To finish off my page, I added in some cardstock stickers from the collection, along with a hand cut title using one of the cut apart sheets in the Oh What Fun collection kit. I took the word Merry and used a little creativity to transform  one of the Rs into a D and then created my own A for the title!
