Simple Stories

I was recently asked about a 12x12 paper that looks like a piece of notebook paper.  As you know, things change often in the scrapbook industry but I went on a hunt and was victorious!  Hooray!!

Julie Tucker-Wolek used Simple Stories - Green/Notebook.  You can view her sweet family blog here.

And here is the layout she did using it :)

Thanks for the inquiry and keep the questions coming - I love to help!

Double Layout - Fall

I have started selling pre-done double page layouts...the just add photos type!  For only $7 you may purchase them but I decided from time to time to just post some of the ones that are done to give you ideas to do your own as well...

This layout used an odd shaped paper pack that I liked.  I cut out misc. letters on the Cricut and embellished with some rub-ons from My Little Yellow Bicycle.

February Challenge Kit

For only $6 you get the sweet scalloped die cut chicky paper, 2 sheets of the orange polka-dotted paper with the strip of bunnies and chicks (the green is the back side), 2 sheets of a regular solid of your choice and 1 sheet of spring word stickers (not pictured.)

Create something with this kit and turn it in by the end of the month to be put up on the wall.  Winner, as voted by customers will receive a $10 gift certificate to the store and the remaining entrants will be put in a drawing for a FREE March Challenge Kit!!

So, get your creative juices flowing, get off the computer and go make something!! :)

Mosaic Layout Class

Just looking to see if there is any interest in this class.  These photos are examples from a previous class.

So, tell me what you think!
