Simple Stories cont'd.

Good Monday morning everyone! Just stopping by the old blog real quick to share with you the rest of my projects from CHA that I did for Simple Stories.

First up, is a layout from the new 24/7 line! Such a fun every day line with some great colors.

and a card using the same line...this card was SUPER simple. The arrow was originally white, I just colored it in with Copic markers and added the little brads.

For Urban Traveler I only signed up to make a card because I am typically not drawn to travel themes. We hadn't seen any of the products prior to signing up, but let me just say that if I had seen it first...I so would have signed up to make more items! It's bright and happy!

and last but not least, a layout featuring the previously released Sn@p! They have so many new cool items that are coming out to coordinate with this line! I have had these photos of my two youngest for a while and they just slay dang cute!



Hope you all have had a wonderful three day weekend!

Vintage Bliss

Well, another CHA has come and gone. The good news is that means that I can share the projects that I made for the Simple Stories booth. I'm going to start by sharing the card and layout that I made using the new line called Vintage Bliss. It is such a pretty line. I really don't think that the online photos do it justice. When they sneaked a peak of all of the images to the designers I didn't think this one would be my favorite, but as soon as I laid eyes on it in person...I am pretty sure that I swooned. Many of us did.

Here's my layout...

The next project is a quick and simple card...

Such a pretty line right? The best part is that I have so many photos that will be just perfect with it!

Valentine's Day is coming

One month away from the day of love! I've been busy making Valentine's Day cards and will be sharing many of them with you over the next couple of days and weeks. The ones that I am sharing today were all made using Papertrey Ink dies and stamps and Studio Calico's December kit 34th Street.

First up,

This is the second one. Love that I was able to pull together some V-day cards utilizing a December kit that included quite a bit of holiday themed papers.


See you again in a couple of days.
