No Stamping or Die Cutting featuring Simple Stories

Sometimes you just want to make something quick and easy without pulling out of ton of supplies and getting dirty.

That's what I did for today's card.  I pulled out an old Simple Stories SN@P pack called Fresh.  The good things is all this stuff is supposed to go together so you don't really have to worry about finding matching/coordinating pieces.

I started with a 3x4 journaling card featuring striped triangles at different angles.  I loved the design, but wanted to customize it a bit, so using my cutting knife I carefully cut out some of the triangles.  Then I layered that card over another and used a third 3x4 card for a mat.

The entire piece was then layered over a mat created by trimming down a 4x6 journaling card.

For the sentiment I layered three pieces of ephemera that come in the SN@P pack, a round piece, a floral cluster, and then the sentiment piece.  To add some balance, I fussy cut a second floral cluster from another journaling card. 

Really quick and easy, and so nice to be able to use some older products in my stash!


  1. This is lovely!! I like that you only did this with die cuts and paper. I have so much stuff left over form my scrapbooking days that I need to get out and use!! Beautiful design!

  2. If only journaling cards were currency ... I have so many! Nice to see a card with them!

  3. Fabulous...so clever too. What a sweet card.

  4. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% positive. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
