Hi everyone! Wedding season is upon us and I can't help but be inspired to create with all of the beautiful wedding, flower and bridal photos out there! Simple Stories got in on the action too, with the gorgeous 'Always and Forever' paper collection! 

This soft and romantic collection features a classic black and cream color scheme in lovely stripes, dots and floral patterns. The best part about it though are the gold foil accents that add sparkle and shine to any project! 

To really show off this stunning collection of patterns and embellishments, I made this dimensional album with five stacked pages. I covered each of the pages with a different pattern of the fabulous paper and then made them even prettier with the charming stickers, chipboard and Bits & Pieces of the collection.

I created this album to highlight pictures and mementos of the bride and groom on their big day but this collection is super versatile. It has such a variety of beautiful images and sweet sentiments that it could be used for engagements, bridal showers and more! 

To see all of the inside pages of this beautiful album check out my YouTube video!

Woooohooo!! It’s my favourite time of year! I absolutely love everything about summer, I am certainly my happiest when the sun shines, and this Hello Summer collection by Simple Stories definitely captures all the aspects of Summer that make me smile!

There’s flamingos, cacti, flowers, fruit, sunglasses and super bright cheerful colours!!

I’ve stuffed my pockets full of papers from the collection, a few doilies, paperclips and made a ‘flamingo’ tag! 

In the large side pocket I’ve popped a few papers to tie it all in and slid a flag paperclip which I made which holds them together.

For the dashboard I’ve used the rainbow stripe and then layered one of the 3x4 elements from the 12x12 cut apart sheets over some of the dotty paper and another doily, a flower & sunshine from the chipboard pieces and I’ve cut out a flamingo from one of the sheets from the 6x8 paper pad.

I used the 12x12 collection kit to make some dividers, which now with the divider templates and the CarpeDiem punch is so quick and easy. I then used the ‘Tabs Sticker Tablet’ and ‘Clear Tab Stickers’ ...perfect!!

I couldn’t help but play around with this gorgeous collection, you’ll see here I’ve decorated using an assortment of papers I’ve cut up to make a sunshine and of course I couldn’t resist adding another flamingo!!

I wanted to highlight the zipper pouches by CarpeDiem which fit inside A5 planners, I don’t think they get enough recognition! For me, they are utterly awesome!! Every planner I have, you’ll find includes one! That’s because they are perfect in so many ways, you can add receipts, bits & pieces (like I have here), stickers, journaling cards, photos...I could go on and on! Basically, if you haven’t got one...then you need one!...or two, three, or more! 

I hope you’ve enjoyed another little look through my planner, which I forgot to mention is the new A5 Mint Blossom, using the fabulous Hello Summer collection. See you again next month, hopefully I’ll have something to show you which will be full of unicorns!! ;)

Hello everyone!  Iris here with a layout about one of those common summer activities when you have little kids - swim lessons.  I had a series of photos of my daughter braving her very first dive into the deep end that I've been waiting for the perfect papers. I've found those in the Hello Summer collection.  

To start things off, I printed my photos as a collage of three columns and hand-outlined them for a whimsical, comic strip feel. I topped each column with word strips from the Combo Stickers. The wave pattern of Oh Happy Day makes a great background for pool pictures.

Large photo collages stand alone quite nicely without many layers, but I wanted to use a variety of the bright, cheery papers.  Inspired by the speech bubbles in the collection, I cut some large ones with encouraging words and hearts from the Silhouette store (Karla Dudley) and backed them with several of the papers. (Life is GoodCatching Rays, and 3x4 Journaling Card Elements)  I loved many of the sayings in this collection, so I added some from the word strips in the 4x6 Stickers pack onto the cut-outs.  Choosing the black and white ones to go on top of all those colorful papers kept it from looking too busy. 

I'm a big fan of the trend to pair "hello" with everything. It serves as an invitation for the good stuff that follows it. Like summer, right?! I used the large "hello" from the 6x12 chipboard set for my title, adding small tile alphas from my stash for "diving".  The left-hand side of this design is packed with die-cuts and colorful papers; the oversized black and white word catches the eye to bring it across the page.

This layout is about the fun, but the story of this summer milestone for my daughter was important to me.  I printed my journaling in bold black on white strips, darker and larger to distinguish them from the word strips on the left.  The journaling bridges the gap between the embellishments and the title. 

I layered smaller fussy-cut speech bubbles and circle stickers along the column of speech bubbles. Ink splatters (Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Ocean) and a sprinkling of black and blue enamel dots contrast from the other colors and serve to bring in the blue from the photo and black from the title up to the rest of the layout.  All the circular embellishments are reminiscent of spraying water droplets. 

Well, school is out, summer is officially here, and Simple Stories has a fabulous collection full of juicy color, fun icons, and great words for all our summer scrapping!

Marcia here today with an adorable Oh, Baby layout for you. Come on, admit it ... we all take tons of photos of babies! They grow so fast over a short period of time and we want to remember every moment. What better way to document those photos then with the Oh, Baby collection. With it's gender neutral tones it's perfect for baby boys as well as baby girls. I couldn't resist scrapping this photo of my cute little nephew...

I printed my photo in a sepia tone to coordinate with the brown tones in the papers. Because I absolutely loved every piece of pattern paper in this collection, I wanted to use as much of it as possible on this layout. I did that by cutting banner strips and arranging them along the top of my layout. Then I matted my photo with some blue pattern paper and used foam adhesive to give it some dimension. So many cute little adorable animals and other baby die cuts and stickers make embellishments choices a breeze.

At the bottom of my layout I arranged stickers, die cuts, and a fabulous chipboard title.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Be sure to check out the adorable Oh, Baby collection ...  and did you know there is also an Oh, Baby Expecting and an Oh, Baby Adoption too!

Hey Creative Friends! 

Florence here again! I just returned from New York and couldn't wait to document some of it. This is Adventure #9/32 of my adventure goals that I started since turning 32. Feel free to check out my first blog post I go over the insert I created. I feel like traveling is such an amazing way to tell your story. You are able to create experiences, some planned, while others are spontaneous. I love the unplanned moments as they make some of the sweeties memories. 

Day Two of NYC- it was a rainy and gloomy day. My friend Jamie and I had tickets to do a cruise of the NYC harbor. It was the only free day her and I had together, and I figured, let's still go. It started with me going to my favorite dumpling spot in China Town, and I accidentally took the express train into Brooklyn. I know rookie move. 

Even though the weather wasn't on our side, don't let water rain on your parade. Literally lol. Normally I would be the person to say no let's do something else. But I was able to learn about NYC history and see iconic buildings and structures.

We then decided to go to go to a few stationery stores. I LOVE stationery stores! They have the cutest things, and sometimes you can get lucky and score some local trinkets. First stop was walking distance from the Harbor called Browne Stone Stationers. If you're ever in the NYC area I highly suggest going!! We found so much NYC goodies. There's something about a stationery store that just makes me happy inside. One- because they're so very rare, and two- my love for stickers and stationery started at a really really young age (3 years old). Next stop was Casey Rubber Stamps. If you love rubber stamps, this is a MUST!! Lastly we went to Pink Olive. Which was such a cute shop.

I am truly thankful for the planner community and love all of the friends I have made because of it. I suggest if you can save up to attend an event local or afar- to check it out. You truly never know when you'll meet your next best friend :) Thanks for taking the time to read a part of my story. Until the next adventure!!

Hi everyone, it is Kelly here today with a new blogpost about my personal planner setup. I use this planner as my personal health planner. With all the fun, bright colors and all the positive quotes and sayings, the Good Vibes collection is perfect to use for this goal.

I decorated the pockets with some bits and pieces and stuffed a sticker sheet from the personal sticker tablet in the side pocket.

For this setup I used the Good vibes personal planner inserts and besides monthly inserts, this set also comes with an acetate dashboard with the quote ‘Carpe Diem’ in gold foil on it.

I cut a piece of vellum at the correct size using the personal divider templates and sticked on a small planner decal with the quote: Live Love Plan! These decals are not only perfect for the outside of you planner, but you can also use them on acetate or vellum dashboards.

I used the mini monthly calendar stickers to create a ‘half year at a glance page’ to have easy reference of the dates for the upcoming months. I decorated the page with some quote stickers from the 12x12 Combo sticker sheet.

The ‘This month’ spreads I mainly decorated with the 12x12 Combo sticker sheet of the Good vibes collection and added some distress ink in the colors that match in the back.

For the monthly spreads I used some more distress ink for a background and added the small circle number stickers for the dates. I hope this setup inspired you to use this collection in your own projects. Have a nice day!

Hello, friends! Jana Eubank here. Summer is all about beating the heat with cool treats and the Hello Summer is the perfect way to record those fun moments with those sticky sweets. My family's favorite summer treat is Hawaiian shaved ice, and today's page features my family enjoying their favorite flavors after doing a little swimming.

I built three embellishment clusters on this page. To make the page cohesive, I made sure each cluster contained similar colors and elements. In this case, the common denominator in all three clusters are flowers and black and white phrases.

Across the bottom of both pages I used a wide strip of the Oh Happy Day paper with it's wave pattern. Instead of cutting the strips straight across with my paper trimmer, I used my scissors to follow along the wavy lines of the pattern.

I used several chipboard elements for my title and the decorations around my title. I used different thicknesses of foam squares to give these pieces different levels, making it more interesting to look at.

Have you scrapbooked your favorite sticky, summer treat?!

My family and I do a lot of camping in the summer and this year I wanted to collect all of our camping trips in one (or maybe two) 6x8 albums. I started with the Robin’s Egg Blue Designer binder because its so pretty, a stack of photos from our first camping trip of the year and the Good Vibes collection! It’s not quite summer here yet and our camping trip was a bit more glamping than camping so Good Vibes had just the right vibe for a weekend of fun, adventure and ice cream.

I decided that each camping trip needs a good title page. For this one I went simple. I just used some of the papers from the Good Vibes 6x8 page, mounted the photo on a smaller piece with torn edges and added some simple stickers. I really like how it turned out. I also used one of the tabs from the planner tabs sticker tablet. 

On the other side of my title page I just slid in one of the cute ready to go pages from the 6x8 page. I am so glad that there are two of every page in the paper pad or I would have so much trouble deciding between the patterned sizes or one of the super cute pages with phrases on them.

I used one of the smaller 4x6 vertical page protectors (these are my new pocket page bff!) to add in a vertical picture with some fun stickers on it. The smaller protectors are a great way to add vertical or square photos in and add some dimension to an album.

I usually use a boring combination of pocket pages with 3x4 and 4x6 photos, but I had a lot of photos that would look good square so I added in some of the Insta Pocket Pages to get those square pictures in. I really like how the 2x8 space on the side of this protector gives me some space for cute paper. I never get to use all the cute paper I want in a pocket page album!

There is a great sheet of 4x4 elements in the Good Vibes collection and using the Insta Pocket Pages makes it easy to use them. On the other side of this spread I used a lot of the SN@P! Basics alpha stickers - I really like them for emphasizing text. They come in some great neutral colours and I use them a ton.

The Good Vibes pink script chipboard sticker was a perfect fit in the 2x8 Insta Pocket Page slot. The weekend was all about good vibes so I got that in there for a simple yet fun embellishment.

Simple Stories collections make it so easy to put together a layout and Good Vies is no exception! I used a couple of the 3x4 elements (love those colour combos) along with some of the stickers both from the 4x6 sticker pack and the cardstock combo stickers and it was done! So easy! The colours and sentiments all go together. It’s fantastic.

Here I used another one of the 4x6 vertical pocket pages. I just love those 2x2 slots. I didn’t have any 2x2 photos but they are a perfect fit for a lot of the stickers and bits and pieces. I added in a little journalling spot with one of my favourite pictures. On the other side I used some more of the 3x4 elements along with some stickers. I can never get enough of the phrase stickers that come in the sticker packs.

This page is packed with colour and pattern. I used another one of the Insta Pocket Pages and filled up the 2x2 slots with more of my favourite chipboard stickers and bits and pieces from the Good Vibes collection. I used more of the 4x4 and 3x4 elements on this page, I am pretty sure I used up almost the whole page of both working on these pages. Good Vibes might be one of my favourite collections yet - it’s full of great patterns, some of my favourite colours, cute icons like emojis, coffee cups, cameras, hearts and more and super usable phrases.

Hello! María again to present the new design of my bullet journal for this summer. I really wanted to use this collection! Summer is here and we have to celebrate it as it deserves.

Here I show my "future log" that I do in a separate notebook. So I can write down all my future plans like my sister's birthday. And the notebook that I will use this month with a flamingo cover, on my YouTube channel you can see how I made it.

Inside the notebook I made this colorful cover using 6x8 papers from the collection, stickers and bits & pieces, and added with lettering the month.

This is my collection of "gratitude" where I point out short phrases to remember day by day. The washi helps me decorate, it is indispensable for me.

The "habit tracker" is my favorite, I set goals that I want to achieve every day like going for a walk, which is something that is hard for me. I decided to tear paper, I liked it so much when I used it in May that I wanted to do it again.

The menu section I use each month, so I can see if I eat healthy. Although I added a small tracker to point out the ice cream we eat, it's the best thing about summer, ice cream!

Is someone more addicted to netflix? I love watching series and documentaries! I have decorated with washi tape and I have left a space to write down the favorite songs.

My classic month view does not change, but it's perfect for me and I can plan my publications. I have done lettering with fine-tip pens and decorated with stickers and washi from the collection.

The previous month I changed the how the week was seen, but this time I went back to the columns. It's more clear to me, I've only changed dividing in two so that I have morning and afternoon schedules. I will decorate it with the stickers from the collection they are perfect.

Hello Friends!

It is Kristine Davidson here today and I am sharing a nice and vibrant layout using the Hello Summer Collection. This collection is super cute because it has so many fun summer elements such as palm trees, strawberries, flamingos, and that red just pops with any photo. 

I created this with the 6x8" paper pad, some chipboard and stickers. I didn't have the 12x12 paper so instead I created my own background using yellow distress ink and some sewing.  The photo is too precious and might not have anything to do with summer but those cute cheeks and smiley face was hard to resist!

I really like the 4x6 sticker sheets that are available with this collection. I always have difficulty using the strips and find myself only using one or two small ones with sentiments. This time I decided to use the stickers at the bottom of my layout.  This acts as a border and provides even more color at the bottom of my page. 

I hope you find time to create today or this week and enjoy a little SUMMER fun with friends and family !

Hi planner girls! It’s Cara here today with some inspiration that’s both fun and functional.  Grab your Good Vibes collection and let’s start creating!

I wanted a place where I could record my routines in my planner. Routines make life so much easier, you don’t have to think about what comes next or what you should do. You just do it. Routines make going after your goals easier, so I created an insert myself, dedicated solely to my routines. So far, I’ve included my morning routine but I’ve got room for afternoon and evening, weekly, monthly and with pages left over for any other routines that I want to include later on.

I used the Good Vibes collection, which I thought suited the theme of the insert well, both in name and the colours and motifs.

For the cover I wanted to use one of the pretty florals from the 6x8 paper pad but it wasn’t big enough. If I want something bad enough, I can usually figure out a work-around! In this case, I layered the floral over the black chevron (Be Amazing) from the 12x12 paper collection. I layered in some heavy white paper and sewed down the middle to form the book. The floral doesn’t cover the back entirely, but all I needed was enough to be able to sew it in place. I layered some cards from the cut apart sheets and added a few stickers. the cover doesn't need much decoration since the floral is pretty fab all on it's own.

The flip side of the floral paper has the black chevrons again and a great ‘good vibes’ image which is a fab little surprise when you open the book! I fussy cut an arrow from one of the 6x8 papers and added some stickers and chipboard.

There’s a title page where I've handwritten ‘routines’ and layered stickers from the mini sticker tablet and 4x6 sticker sheets and a bit of washi.

Then we get into the good stuff! My morning routine! Again I’ve used handwriting for the title and to list out my routine, and I sectioned off the hours with strips of patterned papers, adding the number stickers from the 4x6 sticker sheets. 

Layers and clusters finish of the spread and I used pop dots on the ‘choose happy sticker’ for depth and dimention and because I LOVE a fat TN!

Happy planning!

Hello everyone, its Kylie with you all today. We have just headed into Winter here in Australia but my Robin’s Egg, A5 planner is full of Summer fun and colour - to help me forget the cold! I’ve been busy with the new ‘Hello Summer’ collection from Simple Stories, and today I am going to share with you how I have used this collection in my June set up.

As always, I have enjoyed making some dashboards to add in with my planner pages.I loved layering many different papers, fussy cutting flower clusters and using lots of the Combo Cardstock Stickers.

I couldn’t just stop with dashboards and had to create some tip in’s and page marks too. If you are wondering what tip in’s are – they are colourful little extras to add into your pages. Perhaps not necessarily for a practical purpose but more decorative.

A closer look here shares all the cute elements I have layered. That scooter is SO cute!

The chipboard stickers were perfect for this page mark adding extra dimension without being bulky.Look at all this beautiful colour! So sunny and bright.

This month I have decided to use the Vertical Inserts which are perfect for the box stickers included in the 6 x 4 sticker pack. I have added washi tape to the centre edges and have cut down paper strips to add to the bottom and side panel. This gives lots of colour and interest to my pages.

I really find the mini Monthly Calendar stickers so handy and have added both June and July to my side panel. This helps to have a quick glance at future dates coming up so serves a very practical purpose.

A closer look at my pages, shares my weekly layout. Besides using stickers and die cuts from the Hello Summer collection, I have also intermixed stickers from both the ‘Seasons’ and ‘Calendar’ sticker tablets.

 

Another fun touch to my planner this month has been fussy cutting out one of the gorgeous flower clusters and making a sweet planner clip.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my June planner set up today. Until next time,

Hello, Simple Stories Friends! Jana Eubank here with a new scrapbook page using the Travel Notes collection. My kids are out of school and we are getting excited to head out on our summer family vacation. To get me in the mood to go, I have been scrapping past vacation photos. Today's layout features our summer family vacation from four years ago when we visited the wonderful city of San Francisco!

I had a blast creating a scene at the top of my layout using a cut out of the hot air balloon from the 6x8 Pad. I layered a few phrase stickers (Combo Stickers) below the banner phrase and the chipboard airplane above. The chipboard airplane gets the sparkly treatment with several gems from my stash. I also added some die cut clouds and a sun!

This little cluster on the left side of the page features several die cuts from the Bits & Pieces pack. That little postcard and compass are adorable!

I die cut another cloud for the bottom of the page from the light blue ledger paper in the 6x8 Pad to anchor a cluster of more stickers and die cuts. A stack of suitcases look so cute on this vacation page!

The large fussy-cut hot air balloon overlaps onto my page title in the center of the page. I placed the chipboard script "Explore" word on a strip of yellow cardstock with a dovetailed end. I then placed typed journaling below the title on the right side of the page. 

I hope my layout has inspired you to get scrapping YOUR summer vacation memories with the Travel Notes collection! Have fun!

Hello Again! Rachel here, and I’m am so excited to share my setup for my work planner in my Black Speckle A5 planner using the Good Vibes Collection. If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I cannot get enough of this collection. I am in love with the pink, aqua and bold black and white accents of this collection. I feel like it was MADE for me! What better way to spice up my work planner than with some good vibes from this fun collection!

Let’s start with the pockets! As a planner girl, I love my planner pockets! Sometimes, it can be hard to keep all the cuteness contained in the pockets, so for this pocket setup, I adhered the chipboard stickers with removable tape to trimmed-down pocket cards for the 4X4 Elements paper. I like to mix up the background shapes in my pockets. For the circle, I used one on my favorite tools, the circle photo crop, to trim the circle out of paper from the element paper. I loved opening my planner this month and seeing these beautiful pockets! For the front divider, I used one of the 12X12 papers and the divider template to trim down the paper, and hole punch the paper to make a perfect divider (no measurments needed!). I decorated the front divider with 3X4 element cards and the combo stickers. The sentiment on this card is a good reminder at work to do my thing (which is, be friendly and help students!).

I used the same steps to make two more dividers for notes and important documents. Since this planner is for work, I need it to be very functional. But that doesn’t mean the dividers for each section can’t be fun!

  For this divider, I added some of the bits and pieces and the word strip stickers from the 4x6 sticker sheets. Again, some good reminders on these word strips stickers - “Work hard. Be Humble. No bad days. Let your life shine!” I work with college students every day and these sentiments remind me that I do my best work when I put the students first, and try to make everyday a good one.

I rarely decorate my monthly spread in my work planner but with this collection, I just couldn’t help myself! I started with that fantastic washi on the top and bottom and then filled in the days with stickers from the 4x6 sheets. I love how the box stickers fit perfectly in the daily squares.

My favorite decoration for the month was on the 30th. That’s right! In July, my husband and I are headed to Spain and I can’t wait!

While I do use weekly inserts in my work planner, my daily inserts are the real work-horse. Here is where I write down “all the things”. Sometimes I decorate them, other times I don’t. Either way, the daily sheets give me plenty of space to jot down notes, to-do’s and document the people I have spoken with throughout the day. This is super helpful for the reporting I have to do for my job. When I have time to work on my monthly report, I simply look back through my daily pages to update the report.

These pages are functional first, but I also love getting to decorate them, too! For this day I cropped a scrap of paper using the circle crop so that the “yes, please” was still included. I added stickers for 4x6 sticker sheets and even added a journaling 3x4 element card for decoration and function.

 

I hope you enjoyed getting to see a peak into my work planner. I have really liked this setup for the month of May. Tell me, do you use separate planners for specific areas of your life? Comment below and let me know!

Hello everyone!!  Jackie G here to share a super fun summer project with you!! I’m super excited about this mini album…well, more like “not-so” mini album!!  Measuring in at 9” x 10” with a 3” spine…it’s a big one!!

I used the “Hello Summer” collection to make this beauty!!  Since it was so big I ended up using two of the collection kits, 6x8 paper pad, bits and pieces, and the chipboard stickers. 

So lets get started!!  I kept the front cover pretty simple.  Using just two of the chipboard elements to create my title “hello summer”.  I decided to keep it simple because this album will be traveling with us throughout the summer and I didn’t want anything to get snagged or torn off during transport. 

When you open the album I’ve got a HUGE accordian pocket on the left hand side of the album.  Inside I’ve placed a notepad for my children to jot down notes or drawings while we are out and about.  There is also a TON of room for extra photos or memorabilia to be stored.  On the right hand side I’ve created a fun little pen holder.  Each of the pages are pocket pages with top inserts.  So again, LOTS of room for photos!!

This page is super fun with a cute little scooter to hold a journaling card. 

Can’t go wrong with summer and flamingos!!  This guy holds a couple different size photomat and journaling cards.  I was very cautious about keeping all the mats an easy size so all I have to do is print photos and stick them on with little or no cutting involved.  This spread has two smaller pocket pages with side inserts.  The pull out for lots of extra photo or journaling storage.

I love this spread!!  “I dream of summers that last forever”!!!  LOVE it!!  I’m a summer girl so this collection really has my heart!!

These two inserts I made specifically for using a white gel pen on the back of the black cardstock for some journaling!!  I know my boys will enjoy helping as this house is in full blown “splash zone” here!!! haha

Here’s another spread with the side pockets.  Pool hair, don’t care, and the last of the pages. 

And lastly, we’ve got a big notepad on the back cover for lots more journaling, drawings or whatever else we need!!! I’m so incredibly excited to fill this album up!! 

You can also watch a full walk-thru of this mini album HERE

Thanks for stopping by!!  Hope you have a wonderful day!!!
