Hola, Simple Stories Fans! Allison (aka Ally) L here, and I'm playing the Life Documented catch up game! After some kick-butt scrappin' sessions this summer, I've nearly caught up to current work. One reason I was able get myself back on track was the ease of the Pocket Pages and Simple Stories system. Lately, I've been loving the Say Cheese line. While this may have an amusement park feel to it, I hope I'm about to show you how well the line goes with every day life.
Here's Week 31, and that "Whole Gang" card could not have been more perfect for this photo we snapped of dinner time at our house (yes, there are five dogs in this photo - 3 of our own and 2 fosters).
Because I've been so behind, I've been keeping the layouts very simple. Here, I minimally embellished the Snap card for that pocket. Keeping it simple, keeps me on track!
Next is the "next week" though you may notice my error that I will have to correct at some point...
Again, keeping it simple with basic embellishments and brief journaling allowed me to finish this spread up in no time flat. For the Happy card, I punched the statement out from another 3x4 card and then popped it up on a different card. I wanted more of the blacks and yellows, so it was all about making things work. And check it out, both spreads have nary an amusement park in sight! But the line worked so well for hanging with friends and family.
Here are some close ups of my favorite cards.
I hope this has inspired you to think beyond the amusement park when playing with Simple Stories Say Cheese line!
