Hello Simple Stories fans! Layle Koncar here; I'm the 'new since April 1st' Marketing Director here at Simple Stories :) It's been an exciting, busy time since I started - these past 2 months have literally flown by at lightning speed, and I LOVE IT!
Boy do we have some fun things in store for you this month! Every day throughout the entire month of June, here on the blog and on our Facebook page, we'll be introducing and focusing on a brand new philosphy we call Life Documented.
So let's dig in, shall we?
Anyone out there remember this little gem?
This was the first Simple Stories collection, Life Documented, introduced WAY BACK in 2009. The vision Simple Stories owner Amber Crowell had when starting the company and creating this initial collection was to create products that enable crafters to share their memories in a QUICK, SIMPLE and MEANINGFUL way.
You see, Amber is just like the rest of us. A BUSY mom, wife, sister, business owner, friend, aunt, (insert your own noun here!) - someone with more to do than hours in the day. She's been a scrapbooker for as long as she can remember. Truth is - she developed the Simple Stories company and products to help herself; she was tired of feeling guilty about having halfway completed pages and albums, and boxes full of unscrapped photos.
Does this ring a bell with you?! I know it does with me ;)
When Amber really sat down and started thinking about it, she realized her family was just as happy flipping through albums with photos in page protectors as they were looking at elaborate scrapbook pages that took hours to complete (not that there's anything wrong with creating elaborate scrapbook pages, right?!).
Amber's vision with the Life Documented collection has evolved over the years from pre-designed elements intended to simply be trimmed and inserted, along with your photos, into divided page protectors, to expand to include an assortment of scrapbooking products and embellishments, 4x6 and 3x4 pads, leather albums, SN@P! Binders, Pocket Pages and more - all focused around the concept of documenting your LIFE, in a way that works for YOU.
Over time, that original Life Documented collection that launched 4 years ago in 2009, has evolved into something like this -
An entire suite of products designed to meet your needs, regardless of your personal scrapbooking and paper crafting style.
The Life Documented philosophy is simple! And that's just what it is - a philosophy.
Life Documented is a philosophy of sharing your memories in a quick, simple and meaningful way.
Whether it's traditional scrapbooking, divided page protector scrapbooking, a photo a day, card making, home decor, etc - Simple Stories creates products that let YOU share your story, however YOU want. Everything we do is focused on making it easy, functional and FUN to document your life!
Maybe you're a long time Simple Stories fan or maybe you're just learning about us. Either way, I invite you to join us this month to learn more about our Life Documented philosophy and how you can shed the guilt that you carry as it relates to 'not being caught up' on documenting your life.
Be sure to check in again tomorrow - I'll be sharing more about the products that make up the Simple Stories lines and introducing a new Life Documented team of extremely talented ladies that will share their projects with you throughtout the month and show you different ways they incorporate this philospohy into their memory keeping, using our SN@P! Binders, 12x12 and 6x8 leather albums and our 12x12 and 6x8 Pocket Pages.
