Simple Stories


What do you get when you mix Art Impressions Rubber Stamps with Simple Stories?!?!? A charming little card that makes you feel like spring! To create the card I cut a card front from a piece of pink striped patterned paper from the Simple Stories Bunnies & Bloom collection. I cut the same size card front from Ranger Simon Hurley Create Stark White cardstock. Using a Sizzix Framelits circle die, I cut out a circle window in the upper portion of both the card fronts – in the exact same spot. Using Glue Dots Adhesives Gluetape I adhered the two-card fronts together. This process made the pink stripe paper stronger so I could pop it up later. Next, cut out a piece of Prima Marketing white watercolor paper. Pop it into your Tonic Studios  Tim Holtz Stamping Platform. Securing it into place. Stamp the Art Impressions floral stamp onto the…

Okay, I am seriously obsessed with the Simple Stories – Simple Cards Card Kits! They are ABSOLUTELY gorgeous and come with EVERYTHING you need to create 8 show-stopping cards! I created this card using the Simple Stories Hello Lovely Card Kit. So here is the story. As a scrapbooker, I can not send bought cards to my friends. I just can’t do it.  I feel like I am cheating on my supplies LOLOLOLOLOL.  And there are just times when I don’t have a card ready to go – these kits are soooooooooooooooooooooo the answer!  Beautiful designs, no scissors necessary, and of course you can add your special touches if you like. All you need is adhesives. And for this card, I used Glue Dots Adhesives Pop-Up! Dots and Permanent Gluetape. Did I mention that with the kit you can make 8 different cards? You sure can!  In 2-3 minutes, I…

Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! Katelyn Grosart here! For today’s blog post, I’m sharing with you my Warmest Wishes Wall Hanging.

As the days get shorter, darker, and closer to Christmas, I find myself up in my craft room contemplating Christmas. I don’t have enough cards made and have lost my creative mojo. Like everyone, I’m getting weary of COVID dos and don’ts, but feel strongly about their importance. During these nights in my craft room, I have gotten into watching Lucifer on Netflix! It has been a long time since a series entertained me so much, I am LOVING it! It is easy enough to follow while I play with my supplies, yet I have been pulled into the story! About a week or so ago, I made all kinds of tag bases with my Ranger paints, stencils, and gel plates. Didn’t overthink them, just played and watched TV. It felt good, it felt easy, it felt fun. Last night as I made my way to Season 2 of Lucifer,…

Happy  Monday Creative Scrapbookers! It’s Jayme here with a little peek at what is on my scrapbook table.  I’ve started working on a Christmas gift for my daughter, which may be the earliest I have ever accomplished such a thing. I’m feeling rather proud of myself! So, what is this gift going to be? A recipe book! My daughter comes from a long line of people who love to cook, and she is no exception. She will graduate this year and head off to her adult life soon, so I thought it might be a useful keepsake to have a collection of some of her best-loved recipes from our house as well as those of her grandparents’. I started with a Prima Memory Hardware Chipboard Album and found the perfect paper line from Simple Stories called ‘Apron Strings’. It’s filled with great vintage kitchen images and I love using the…
