Simple Stories

We are so excited about our 3 new Simple Stories lines (this is just a sneak peak - be sure to read to the end for more images!):

To understand why we love them so, we thought we would share a little about the idea behind the product first! The following section describing Simple Stories is courtesy of the Simple Stories Blog. It was such a great outline of their product, I decided not to reinvent the wheel, but instead to just share their great description:

It’s scrapbooking…simplified!

Postcard fm - 600

Share Life’s Sweet Stories….Simply.
Overwhelmed with too many photos? Feeling guilty for not being "caught up”? Frustrated because you don't know where to start...or worried if you can even keep up?

Life is busy...We Get it! It seems nearly impossible to keep up with all of life's demands - including preserving your most important memories. Your photos and memories are far too important to keep in a box, store on a computer or bury in a pile…left forgotten…your story untold. Simple Stories is a refreshingly simple, stress-free approach to scrapbooking for scrapbookers just like you who want to share their life stories in a simple, yet beautiful way and meaningful way, but without the time, guilt and stress. Hundreds of scrapbookers have already embraced scrapbooking the Simple Stories…what are you waiting for?

Easy-Peasy Scrapbooking!
The Simple Stories system is an easy, simplified scrapbook process that allows you to get back to the basics of scrapbooking – focusing on your memories and photos. You’ll discover just how easy – and liberating, exciting and satisfying - it is to create beautiful, dynamic pages in a matter of minutes.

Step 1
The key to the Simple Stories system is our signature element pieces. Pre-designed element pieces are printed on high-quality, double-sided 12x12 sheets of beautiful designer cardstock paper.
Step 1 - 600

 Step 2
It’s as simple as trimming the pre-designed cardstock to size to create the individual element pieces.
Step 2 - 600

Step 3
Simple Stories elements come in a variety of basic sizes, including 4x6 journaling cards, 6x8 photo mats, 4x4 quote blocks, 6x12 page elements, 4x12 titles and 2x12 border strips!
Step 3 - 600

Step 4
Simple Stories element pieces are designed to fit perfectly with the coordinating divided page protector pockets, available in a wide variety of formats and sizes. Simply insert trimmed element pieces, along with your photos, into the divided page protector pockets for quick and easy scrapbooking.  It’s doesn’t get any easier than that!
Step 4 - 600

Step 5
Complete album pages fit securely into the coordinating 3-ring albums showcasing your memories in a simple, yet beautiful way, for years to come.
Step 5 - 600

Isn't this company Brilliant?! Not only do you have the option of using these products as described above, they also have patterned double-sided cardstock for people that prefer their traditional scrapbooking. Also, if you already have the We R Memory Keepers page protectors, Simple Stories works perfectly with them!
