I think now, more than ever, most of us are turning to home for a little comfort. Family dinners are more frequent, and lots of tried and true, generations-tested recipes are being rediscovered.
The new Simple Stories Apron Strings Collection will bring back memories of good times in the kitchen learning to cook and sharing those amazing meals. It just makes your heart happy!
The papers and images have a retro vibe that reminds me of Mom’s kitchen. She always wore a pretty apron with a ruffled edge and pockets just like the ones in the die cut images. I can still picture the crocks along the counter that held sugar, flour and tea.
The collection kit of 12” papers includes a sheet of double sided tags, and recipe cards perfect for journaling.
Something new this release is the decorative brads. The prongs have been removed from the backs and replaced with adhesive foam tape so they're easy to adhere to your design. They're high gloss that remind me of shiny hard candy. A treat for the eyes!
The collection has all the other embellishments you’ve come to expect from Simple Stories – Bits and Pieces printed die cuts, Journaling bits and Pieces, Washi tape and Enamel Dots. I have used a bit of each on all my designs.
The sticker sheet included in the collection kit has little tabs, more images, and even a pretty floral scallop border! I always apply baby powder to the back of the stickers so I can move them around without them getting stuck. It’s like having another pack of bits & pieces to play with!
The kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s where we share meals and trade stories of our day’s adventures. These papers and images will bring back those cozy and warm memories and envelope you like a hug.
I think these cards will make cute notes to send to my kids who are writing the next chapter of our family story. Maybe I’ll tuck a few family recipes inside too so they can share them with the next generation!
