Simple Stories Forever Fall

Today and I’m sharing cards made with the Simple Stories Forever Fall Collection. Fall is my favorite time of year and this beautiful fresh collection is a new favorite. The colors are everything you’d expect for fall…warm colors like oranges, reds, and browns with a fun twist of navy and pink. 
The background papers are florals, plaids, newsprint and dots that mix and match effortlessly. I made all my cards with the 12” collection kit. The first thing I do when I get the pack is to cut apart the journaling cards and then cut the 12” sheets into 6” squares. This makes the papers more manageable for card making. 
This card features a 3x4” journaling card with a fun fall sentiment. I embellished it with chipboard stickers and a sentiment and pink tab sticker from the combo pack. 
The bits and pieces die cuts available in this collection are the icing on the cake. You’ll find printed and die cut hearts, flowers, pumpkins, leaves, sentiments and so much more. Because they’re ready to go they’re so easy to work with! 
I like to spread out the die cut images on my table (bits and pieces and chipboard) so I can get a good look at them all. I arrange them on sheets of clear plastic the size of my card base so I can experiment with different layouts before I commit and adhere them in place. 
Arranging the elements on a clear sheet of plastic helps me decide on what background papers to use too. I can pick up the plastic sheet and lay it over different pattern paper backgrounds and decide which one is most pleasing to my eyes.
This card shows lots of the different patterned papers in the set. 
I had lots of fun making with this collection and I know you will too!
