Hello everyone! Today I want to share a mini album created with the super fun Simple Stories Oh Baby Collection. This is such a fun collection to work with. The mini album isn’t too Mini. It actually measures 8-1/2 x 8-1/2 and will hold a lot of photos. Thanks for watching and have a fabulous day!
Hello everyone! What do you do when you need some quick graduation cards? Simple Stories Rad Grad collection to the rescue! I created three really quick and easy cards. Here’s a look at the first card I created using this fun collection.
This card measures 5-1/2×5-1/2. The base of the card is black cardstock. I added some layers of black and white behind the design papers to just separate the patterns. The sentiment on the front is one of the 4×4 cut outs from the collection making this card really quick. I used a gold glitter shimmer pen over the writing and stars. I left the inside of this first card blank.
I did use some of the design papers to finish off the inside.
I used another one of the cut outs for the focal point on the front of the card. Lots of layers with the black and white cardstock to separate the patterns. I had some gold star brads in my stash so I added those to the front as well.
I used the Happy, Happy, Happy stamp set from Lawn Fawn for the inside sentiment. I added another cute gold star brad to finish it off.
I used the same sentiment from the Lawn Fawn stamp set but this time I heat embossed the word “happy” with some gold embossing powder. A couple more black glitter stars and this card is ready to go!
Have a great week!
Hello everyone! I have a quick little project to share with you today. I received a sample of the Simple Stories Plaid Dad collection. The sample was only three sheets of the 12×12.
I saw a really cute tutorial on the Everything Authentique Facebook page and I thought it would be the perfect project. In the tutorial they used a graduation themed papers but I wanted to create a Fathers Day version. Its a small little folio created from cardstock.
I double matted the project using black cardstock for the base and then added a layer of gray cardstock. It has a magnet closure on the front. I created a pocket with one of the cut parts and add a couple of tags with some cute brads that resemble screws.
This was a really cute project and came together really quick! Sending this to my Father in Law for Fathers Day! I love the fun saying, “Sawdust is Man Glitter”.
Have a great week and checkout the fun tutorial over on the Everything Authentique Facebook page.
Hello everyone! Today I want to share a quick little Mothers Day project. My inspiration for this project came from a fabulous tutorial by the amazing Kathy Clement of KathybyDesign. I love everything she creates. She used the G45 Little Women Collection but I wanted to make a Mothers Day version using a sample of Simple Stories Mama Llama collection. This collection is adorable. Since I only had three sheets of 12×12 this was a perfect project. Here’s the front of the tag folio.
The base of the tag folio are the square tags from Graphic 45. I used the fabulous new dies to cover the tags. I used a scallop circle for the front image of the cute Mama Llama and the little llama. Here’s a closer look at the front cover.
I tied some pretty May Arts ribbon to the top and added some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. This is a really fun project. Thanks Kathy for the inspiration and tutorial. Here’s the link if you would like to create one yourself!
Have a great day!
