Hello, Simple Stories Scrappers! Jana Eubank here with a fun way to add additional photos or journaling to a scrapbook page.

My youngest daughter did the most adorable thing for our family last St. Patrick's Day. She made signs and love notes for each person telling us how much she loves us and how lucky she feels to be in our family. 

I used pictures of her holding a "Happy St. Patrick's Day, Family!" sign for the main photos on this page, but I also wanted to include images of the other notes she had created. My solution? Tags!

I used a manual die cut machine to create a couple of tags (you could also use tags purchased from an office supply store), added photos and journaling to them, and then tucked them in between the layers of my page design!

Next, I used the "LOVE" letters from the St. Patrick's Day 6x12 Stickers as the main word in my title, Then I sprinkled the floral and heart stickers around the page for a girly feel!

I loved the navy 3x4 journaling card with the rows of shamrocks with a single heart and wanted to incorporate it into my page design somehow. I decided to place it to the right of my photos as an additional background layer. 

Next, I punched the "charmed life" circle from another 3x4 Journaling Card to add navy to the other side of the page. The "So Very Lucky" banner sticker below the title repeats the navy color around the page, grounding the design and creating a visual triangle. 

Have you created a page lately about the people that you feel "lucky" to know? The St. Patrick's Day Simple Set is the perfect way to do it!

Hello! I hope you are having a great week! Jana Eubank here with a snowy scrapbook page using the Sub Zero collection.

I am in love with the colors of this collection! They have been perfect for scrapbooking my son's love of snowboarding. His jacket just happens to be a lime green ... one of the amazing accent colors that makes working with this collection so much fun!

I created a title for my page by using a circular metal die to cut out the "Chills & Thrills" wording from one of the cards of the 4x6 Vertical Elements paper. Next, I matted it with red cardstock and then built a scene around it using snowflakes, pine trees, and a car from the Bits & Pieces pack, Combo Sticker sheet, and 6x12 Chipboard sheet.

My main photo had a lot of white space around my subject. I took advantage of that space by overlapping the left side of the picture with another scene using the adorable A-frame cabin and pine tree die cuts. The "Up to Snow Good" arrow phrase is so punny ... I just couldn't resist using it here! Ha ha! (Especially, since my son usually ditches school to go snowboarding ... shhh!)

This snowboarding polar bear looks like he has a fun personality! He is cool as can be and somebody I'd love to hang out with on the slopes!

Happy New Year, friends! Jana Eubank here with a wintry page using the adorable Sub Zero collection. I live in Utah and as you may or may not know, it is the home of the "greatest snow on earth" which means we have a lot of ski resorts nearby. My scrapbook page today features a photo of the first time my son learned how to snowboard.

I love the versatility of all of the icons in this collection and was tickled pink to discover the snowboarding bear and the ski lifts! I die cut a few snow-capped mountains for the background and then used black string to make the ski lifts appear as though they are taking you to the top for your next run!

The snowboarding bear is taking a break for some lunch and hot cocoa at the ski lodge at the bottom of the page.

Whether you have fun winter memories of skiing, snowboarding, sledding, playing in the snow, or just sipping a cup of hot cocoa the Sub Zero collection will make your project shine!
