Let Love Rule!



Hi everyone! I have a super cute post for the new year and there is even a tutorial! Valentine's Day is right around the corner and now is a great time to get a mini album ready to fill with  photos and mementos of that special person. This envelope mini may look small but it opens up to reveal lots of space for all of your treasures!

I used the We R' Memory Keepers envelope punch board create this large envelope that when closed measures about 6.5" x 9.5". It opens up to be even bigger and has some pockets and flip pages and tons of cute details!



On the large area in the center, there is a pocket that holds a tag and a tiny vellum envelope that holds some of the tiny ephemera of the collection! Both sides of the envelope flip open to reveal even more photo space and there is a hidden pocket on the bottom flap!


The envelope folds up nicely and is closed with tiny magnets that are concealed with gorgeous embellishments. This mini album would make a wonderful gift for a loved one or a beautiful keepsake for yourself! There is a tutorial on my YouTube channel so you can make one of these for yourself!

Listen To Your Art!

Hi everyone! Christmas is over and now is the time to start thinking about those New Year's resolutions. One that is always good and productive is keeping a journal but wouldn't it be more fun to keep track of your art journey?! 



The new 'Hey Crafty Girl' paper collection from Simple Stories is full of vibrant and fabulous patterned papers and the cutest embellishments for any craft you can think of! I took all of these papers, along with the coordinating Simple Basics paper pack, and made this art journal that is perfect for documenting my crafty endeavors throughout the year!


The front and back covers, which are made from heavy weight chipboard and measure 6.24" x 8.75", feature four different patterns of the gorgeous paper. It was so hard to decide which ones to use! I loaded up the front cover with a combination of chipboard, stickers and Bits & Pieces and layered them over a charming 4x6 element card. I even tied on a sweet tag at the top!



Inside are 30 patterned paper and white card stock pages. Four of them are tabbed dividers which have been highlighted with some fun sentiment stickers to help keep me organized. They, along with all of the other pages, have been decorated with the phenomenally cute embellishments, stamps and stencil of the collection. There are pockets galore, journaling pages and plenty of room for photos or mementos! Below are some of my favorites in the journal!







If you are a crafter of any sort, this dazzling collection is for you! The possibilities to create are endless and the papers and every other adorable piece of this collection will definitely put a smile on your face! I'm so excited for the New Year to start documenting my art journey! If you want to make an art journal of your own, please visit my YouTube channel for a tutorial and look through the entire journal or you can click on the video below!

All My Heart Mini!



Hi everyone! It is never too early to start craft projects. You never know what is going to come up and besides, all the beautiful paper is out just waiting to be made into something even more awesome!


Now that all of your Christmas decorations are up and your presents are wrapped (Ha!) you need something to do with your time. This mini album, made with the gorgeous My Valentine paper collection from Simple Stories, can go right on your to-do list!


This sweet album is 6 inches square and the base is chipboard, two covers and a spine, that were covered in some pearly faux leather along with some of the charming patterned paper. I took one of the layered frames of the collection and made it into a shaker filled with flowers, gems and pearls for the highlight of the cover. I then added in some Bits & Pieces, stickers and chipboard for even more pretty dimension!


There are five sections inside the album and they are all attached to the spine with coordinating twine.   All of the sections unfold to reveal more space for photos or mementos and there is a large double pocket section in the center. Each page has been beautifully decorated with the stickers, chipboard pieces, frames and Bits & Pieces of the collection that add even more charm to the gorgeous papers! Here are a few of the pages.





I'm sure you have your hands full with all of the things we do during the holidays but make sure you take time out to checkout this amazing collection from Simple Stories. You will not be disappointed and you will probably want to add it to your Christmas list! There is a short walk-through video on my YouTube channel that shows this sweet mini in more detail!

Hello Winter!


Hi everyone! Cold weather and snow may be here again (ugh!) but that means staying inside and crafting with beautiful paper collections like the Simple Stories Winter Farmhouse. It's full of rich colors and great patterns in wonderful wintry images.




To show off this gorgeous collection, I made an adorable mini album that also adds charming Winter decor to your home! This tri-fold mini measures 6x6 square and folds out to three sections on each side. It will hold a total of five large photos of your favorite snowy memories! Here is a photo of the album opened up to the inside.


The other side has the cover and two additional sections for photos. Each page has been decked out in a mixture of the gorgeous patterned paper and embellished with the darling winter themed stickers, chipboard and sentiments!



Once you have viewed all of the photos in this super cute album, just fold it back up and display it with your other winter decor. It is created with a fold at the bottom so it stands perfectly and looks awesome!

Home Sweet Home!


Hi everyone! When I saw the new Simple Stories So Happy Together paper collection I was smitten.This collection is a delightful mix of beautiful florals and colorful stripes and plaids in fun candy shop colors complemented with sweet and cute family themed embellishments. The perfect way to scrap about home and family!


This folding house mini is not only adorable on the outside, but it opens up to reveal oodles of spots for photos and mementos! I found the tutorial online, at yourbookofmemories and it's multi sections are perfect to showcase all of the gorgeous papers and ephemera included in this collection. 


The roof of the album comes off and is pretty enough on the under side for a couple of photos. Then the whole album unties and folds flat into four sections that each hold surprises of their own! There are pages that open, photo flips and even pockets! Such a cute way to hold all of the wonderful memories of friends and family!


Untie the doors of the first section to reveal a spot for photos and journaling. Plus the doors flip down for another photo spot and a small pocket!


The second section is interesting with lots of flaps that open in opposite directions to finally reveal a set of cascading photo flips! All decked out in the gorgeous So Happy Together paper and embellishments!


A sweet pocket for the third section that can hold journaling cards or more photos! There are folds in this section as well that flip up, down or open for more photos and even a hidden pocket in the back that holds a cute tag!


The last section has another photo flip under the first flap and behind that another photo spot and pocket with another tag!

Country Christmas December Daily!



Even though I'm not a kid anymore, there is still a lot of anticipation and excitement in the days leading up to Christmas and one of my favorite ways to document that is with a December Daily! You can include a simple photo or memento along with a bit of journaling for each day through Christmas or even for the whole month and by making your December Daily mini in size makes it easier to log a memory for each day .


The new Simple Stories Country Christmas collection is full of gorgeously detailed vintage and woodland images that would make any project beautiful. Besides all of the stunning papers in traditionally classic Christmas colors, there are a ton of beautiful embellishments, including lots of numbers, that make creating a page for every day in December a breeze!


For my December Daily, I made a double sided card for every day and added numbers of varying shapes and sizes to each.  I knew all of these cards would be sitting in a decorative box and to give them more visual interest, I made each set of five a bit taller than the previous and used dies to cut fancy borders on the tops. Once all of the cards were done, I made a matching box from chipboard and more of the patterned papers!


Then each card was decked out and decorated with this fabulous collection. There are plenty of pockets, frames, tags and flip outs to hold all the special memories! These are the fronts of all the cards....



and this is the back of the cards!



These are just a few of my favorite cards in this December Daily but if you want to have a look at each and every card in detail, please visit my YouTube channel for a short video. I hope this inspires you to get started on making a beautiful December Daily of your very own!
