One of my favorite craft paper companies is Simple Stories. I love how they always have new and innovative designs in their paper stacks! For the past 5 years, Simple Stories cardstock and SN@P! card sets have been setting trends. This year is no different.
As the name suggests, Simple Stories makes products that simplify scrapbooking and card-making. Their smaller albums are a great gift and way to get new/younger scrapbookers going on their paper projects. It's as easy as inserting a picture with a journaling card, and adding embellishments as you please.
So, what should you be excited for in 2016? I'm about to tell you. Some of these sets are going to sell out so quickly, I can just tell. The one thing about Simple Stories is I never know if we can get more product in or not. If you see something you like, you had better get it then and there.
Hero and Hope Collections
First, to the left, we have the Hero Scrapbook Collection Kit, which comes with six double-sided sheets of paper, two cardstock sticker sheets, and two double-sided cardstock elements sheets.
This convenient kit allows you to create multiple scrapbook pages with a fun, patriotic theme. Show off your reverence and admiration for those who have fought for and defended the freedoms we enjoy in the USA.
Second, to the right, we have the Hope Scrapbook Collection Kit, which comes with six double-sided sheets, two cardstock sticker sheets, and two double-sided cardstock elements sheets. This theme is of course for Breast Cancer Awareness and features everything in pink. It will help you make crafts that inspire hope for a brighter future! Both of these great sets are sure to sell out quickly!
Let's Party and Carpe Diem
Third, to the left, we have the Let's Party Collection Kit, which comes in both 12" x 12" and 6" x 6" stacks (not to mention SN@P! sets).
If you love the Simple Stories scrapbooking system, you may want to pick up all 3 components of this collection, because the theme will surely come in handy. As the name suggests, it's ideal for making layouts for parties and celebrations.
Fourth, to the right, we have the Carpe Diem Collection Kit, which will coordinate with Carpe Diem planners. There is also a 6" x 6" stack and either one of them will be great for your paper craft projects. In addition, they released a whole mess of embellishments to use decorating your planner or your scrapbook kit. Embellishments like stickers, chipboard frames, enamel dots, and brads. Right now most of the Carpe Diem Planner collection is in stock! The rest should be arriving soon.
Fifth, (not pictured) the last collection kit is You Are Here!, which comes in 12" x 12" and 6" x 6" (and SN@P!s). This collection reminds me of vacation time, spending days on the beaches of Hawaii and relaxing! The thought warms my heart in this cold February weather. Let me know which is your favorite paper collection, and if you create something with one of these sets, please share it with me! I can't wait to see what you make!
