Urban Traveler

Hello everyone!
Today I've got a fun travel page to share with you using Simple Stories' Urban Traveler line.


My sister and I spent a weekend in Rome and it was amazing! I've been waiting to scrapbook the photos because I didn't have anything quite right- until Urban Traveler came along that is.


This page came together really quickly as I used the border strip as my main focus, building everything else up around it. I layered a few elements and even broke out my ink for the edges to help them stand out a little bit.

I added some jute to this cute luggage tag to bring in some texture and I love how it looks!
Well, that's all I've got today, thanks for checking in!

Year In Review

Hello friends! I'm here today with a two-pager, one inspired by a lot of great year in review pages I've been seeing lately.

I used Simple Stories SN@P! as a starting point, choosing black and white photos so the colors really pop!

I created little month banners by cutting them out of month flash cards, then I added number stickers, also from this collection. I even used washi tape here which I hardly ever think to pull out of my drawer!

I added just a bit of dimension with a few SN@P! stickers here and there.

And, I snuck in some journaling by putting a SN@P! pocket behind my title.
It was a fairly quick spread for a two-pager but has a lot of fun, bold colors- just my style!

And I'm SO far behind in posting these (yeah, I know, one is Christmas related) but better late than never.
I used a cut file from Ormolu as my starting point and pulled bits and pieces from various kits to build around it. It's got a bit more on it than I usually do but I love this red and aqua combination!

And this one is made entirely from a kit (Cocoa Daisy, maybe?). I brought the kit in to work on the off-chance that I would get to use it during some free time. Well, I got my free time, but didn't bring a lick of other supplies so this was made with ONLY the kit. I didn't even have a proper paper trimmer. AND, I made it in less than 20 minutes which has to be some kind of record for me. I'm not entirely in love with it but it was really nice to just let go and get something made- at work even!
Thanks for stopping by today!
