If you’re a DIY sort of gal (like me) then WOW! Do I have the collection for you! Simple Stories Hey Crafty Girl is going to steal your heart, because it’s all about your favorite thing.. MAKING! Just the name is practically calling out to you!
You’ll love the printed pattern papers with numbered grid marks, paint swatch rainbow colors, ruled lines, florals, plaids, dots and more.
All of my cards start out with a white card stock base topped with a slightly smaller matt cut from the Simple Stories Simple Basics papers. Each sheet is color coordinated to match the printed papers in the collection. The Simple Basics papers are solid on one side and have a soft dot print on their reverse. When patterns get a little busy, it’s easy to break things up with a panel of solid.
I’m smitten with the fun sentiments in the set that you’ll find everywhere.. in the Bits and Pieces, Stickers, and Chipboard. Sentiments like “Life is short – buy the Paper!”, “Crafty Girls Rock” and “Keep Calm and Make Pretty Things”. Are you smiling yet?
We all love showing off our crafty space. A place where we can create, dream, imagine and explore. And while our little hobby can get expensive. lets face it.. it’s cheaper than therapy! LOL! And the best part of all.. I feel so blessed that paper crafting has helped me find friends that enjoy making just like me.
The images are all wonderful too! You’ll find tubes of paint, tape runners, washi, flowers and lots more! Most of us are multi taskers, and this collection is too. You’ll find embellishments for your inner photographer, decorator, journalist and fashion designer too!
This collection includes traditional Bits and Pieces as well as Journaling Bits and Pieces die cuts. The journaling set includes tags, tabs and labels perfect for layering.
Simple Stories has expanded this collection to include a stamp set with coordinating dies, and a stencil too so you can explore even more ways to make with this wonderful collection!
Crafting is always a good idea and I can’t wait to share these pretty cards with my crafty friends! I know they’ll appreciate these fun images and whimsical sentiments that bring out the crafty girl in all of us!
