Clique Kits-Simple Stories Blog Share

Hello and welcome to the Clique Kits Blog Share featuring Simple Stories!  If you have arrived from Jody’s blog then you are in the right place!  To start from the beginning please Click Here.  We are all huge fans of Simple Stories and my love for them started about 4 years ago when I became a Memory Works consultant.  I was very sad to see Memory Works go but I am so blessed to have met some amazing women while I was a Memory Works consultant.  Without Memory Works I would have never been introduced to Gia, Jody, and Lacey!  We have started this new journey together and we are all so excited to have you join us!  Today I am sharing projects using the Simple Stories Simple Set, Hey Mom!  This collection has some great mom and Mother’ Day images but I wanted to show you that you can take a line like this and use it to document a variety of other things!  I love the pretty colors in this collection and the pattern papers are super cute and fun!  The floral prints are beautiful and there are some great pieces to use a neutral.  My first project is a couple pages in my snap album!  I love the Simple Stories lines to create quick and simple layouts without a whole lot of work!  The cut apart sheets make it easy to complete pocket pages and the stickers that come in the simple sets are the perfect Embellishments to give your pages a little something extra!  Here is a look at my completed pages using Hey Mom!

Next up I have two layouts to share with you.  The first one is documenting a photo of my daughter Alyssa and I.  I absolutely love this photo of Alyssa and I taken by an old friend of mine Anna Wight!!  My daughter is hilarious and I do not know what I would do without her!  She is definitely a mini me for sure and I look forward to watch her grow up (just not to fast)!

And the second layout I created in about 25 minutes!  I just pulled out a white piece of 12×12 cardstock as my base and pulled out the pieces of the Hey Mom collection that were all cut up and started piling them on!  The photo is of one of my best friends and I at my sons 8th grade graduation party.  Whenever the two of us are together we have to take at least one photo together!  I love how it turned out and it came together so quick!

Thanks so much for stopping today!  I hope you enjoyed my layouts and were inspired today!  If you would like to pick up the Simple Stories Hey Mom collection you can head on over to the Clique Kits Shop where you will find this and other fabulous Simple Stories products!  Your next stop is Lacey and she has some amazing projects to share!  Have a great day and do not forget to stop back at the Clique Kits blog and let us know you completed the hop for your chance to win a $10.00 gift certificate to the Clique Kits Store.
