Simple Stories Family Fun

It’s time to get your game on with the new Simple Stories Family Fun Collection! It’s a day of fun and games, staying in, or headed out! Let’s take a closer look!
I love the bright colors that just make me want to get up and go! And like each and every Simple Stories collection my mind is filled with memories of good times spent TOGETHER.
The competition is tough when you’re surrounded by family – because we never hold anything back. Whether you’re a fan of video games, bowling, mini golf, or master of the gameboard you’ll love all the images and details that you’ll find in this collection.
My kids are grown now, but I feel like the time spent together playing games has kept us close throughout the years. The time spent together gave us time to talk about our lives and learn more about each other.

Keeping score always helped teaching math skills and taking turns made sure that everyone had a chance to steal the spotlight.
I was delighted when my kids and their partners joined us for our most recent vacation. I packed dominos and a pack of playing cards and YES!!! we had a few very late nights snacking, talking, and catching up.
With COVID we avoided the theatres, but we still enjoy a movie at home! Pass the buttered popcorn please! There was some time for a little mini golf. The winners still talking smack and putting the rest of us to shame.
This collection has it all.. score cards, game pieces, playing cards, game boards, fun colorful spinners and even the snacks – popcorn, drinks and candy too!
I know that these cards will bring the recipients the same recollections I have – of rainy days spent indoors, and family time together! You’ll love the Family Fun Collection for cards and documenting the perfect days in your life.

Fusion Challenge - Seaside Treasures

Hi friends! I hope you're having a great day! If you're looking for a new challenge you'll find another winner at Fusion Card Challenge . You'll love this challenge because there are three ways to play.. you can play along with the sketch, be inspired by the photo, or FUSE them together and play with BOTH!


So I spy a vintage ball jar filled with seashells. The colors are mostly neutral with a pop of aqua blue from the glass and perhaps a bit of coral in the sea shells. You can spin the photo into a color theme of neutrals and blues, or perhaps you see another element that jumps out at you.... seashells??? If you're not inspired by what you see in the photo.. then you're welcome to play along with the sketch. If you're feeling really clever you can FUSE them together.
.I focused on that fabulous jar full of sea shells. It just reminds me of trips to the beach.. of picking up little treasures.. discarded shells and smooth sea glass, and bringing them home and foolishly thinking I could capture a day in jar.
I used several die cuts starting with the Knotted Diamond Background that reminds me of fish net. I adhered it to a rustic cardstock with lots of fiber imperfections. I topped the background with a die cut jar and embellished it with kelp and coral die cuts from Memory Box.
Of course I had to add some sparkle and shine - some gold sequins and aqua and white gems.
This card is so pretty in pink! What a great way to let someone special know that they're on my mind! Now it's your turn! Maybe you need a little more inspiration? Check out designs from the rest of the team. Just click on their names below to jump to their blogs.


I hope I see you at Fusion Card Challenge! I cant wait to see what you make!

Big Winter Hugs

Today I'm sharing a Pretty Little Studio Frosty Collection treat with BIG HUGS just for you!


The Frosty Collection will embrace you with cozy plaids, cute woodland critters, and soft stripes that will have you thinking of quiet Winter nights spent indoors looking out at the snow falling.

My card starts with a plaid background topped with a Hug In A Mug 3x4" Journaling Card. I added a few die cut borders along the left side and some faux stitching and simple sentiment sticker along the bottom.
A die cut banner is attached to the top in yellow to coordinate with the die cut border along the left edge. Of course the focal point is the adorable deer from the Snow Friends die cut pack. It's loaded with sweet images that are irresistible.

I hope you have a great day with time to MAKE MAKE MAKE!
