Feline Friend | Bella Blvd

I was lucky enough to visit Stephanie last weekend. I really needed some hugs and some girl time. We set up the scrap table on Friday afternoon and cleaned up on Sunday night. I created about 6 pages and was pretty happy with the results. I usually scrap about 4 in a weekend so this was a very productive weekend and Lots of Fun too!

This is a page I created using some new to me Bella Blvd - Lucky Starz

Megan my little niece, loves animals - LOVES them - and this was the first time she met our new kittens - Archie and Willie. She was immediately drawn to both of them. This is Archie in her arms and he was quite comfortable there for a few minutes. He's hates kisses - only when it's ok for him (WINK!)
We were also playing around with Uncle Steve's sunglasses and removed the lenses so I could take some fun photos of the kids.
It's a Feline Friend!

Thanks for visiting!
I'll be sharing more layouts this week ;-)

April Life Documented | Simple Stories

A new Wedding collection from Simple Stories has just been released!
Have you seen it yet? It's Called
the Story of Us and it's Beautiful !!! 

I saw this collection and immediately i was drawn to the grey, gold colors and soft floral designs. I'm really not a " Wedding " documenter ( if that's a word! ) but I still wanted to use this collection for a Life Documented spread.

I just went with the week of April 1 to April 8 for this spread and used only this paper collection for my spread.

Here are individual pages - and a few close ups.

So as you can see, even a wedding collection can be used for a multitude of themed layouts / or Life documented spreads!

I hope you can find this collection pack or even a few sheets of this collection at your nearest scrapbook store! have fun with it and make sure you share your projects with us at the Simple Stories Facebook page or Instagram feed! (@SimpleStories_) #SimpleStories

Life Documented | Simple Stories

I first drooled on the entire DIY & DIY Boutique collections and then decided on which elements I was going to use. Most of them made the list and ended up scattered on my entire scrapbook table! I decided I was going to do a "set of 24" just to have on hand and maybe trade some with friends for their own Life Documented albums.

I used some DIY Boutique papers and cut them up 3x4" knowing they are double sided I could use the A or B sides, I also used the DIY Office Card Foundations. Using a few scraps of paper and of course lots of pop dots, DIY stickers and chipboard I was able to create a great variety of cards.

I began creating these cards a little late in the evening, a few hours after a little over 1:30am I looked at the clock and I seriously couldn't stop! This project is perfect for Crops or Scrapbook nights with friends! So fun to do ;-) and sharing them for Card Swaps even better! The DIY products are for sure a must have in your stash!

Here's are a few finished Life Documented pages using a few of my own filler cards.  

Here are a few close-up shots.

and a few close up shots of my Filler Cards.

This Collection is fabulous to create your own journal cards, pages, mini albums and so much more - it's endless! As you can see these are just too much fun to create, Give it a try, add them to your Life Documented pages !

Summer Days | Simple Stories

remember those days when you use to spend hours at the playground? just running around being silly and asking your parents or aunt and uncle to push you on the swings? well this day was it for Miss Megan. She was having a blast just playing around and always asking " Can you Push me ? Higher ? Higher ? Higher!? "
i love those little moments!

I used Simple Stories - Fresh Air for this layout 
Love creating in grids these days, so fun to create each little square as a layout, and it's so easy to make it all come together. I'm a little hooked on this format.
