Major Milestones | August at Simple Scrapper

Posted on

July marked two major milestones in my life: my husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and our kitchen was completely remodeled. It was a very busy month! Luckily I had time to scrapbook each of these events–by using Story Starters and Collection sketches from the membership at Simple Scrapper made creating these pages very easy!

For our anniversary, my husband and I bought each other matching Apple watches. Even though something silver is a more traditional gift, we decided that our gift would be technology. Now we can text each other from our wrists! I used this month’s Story Starters, Tech Today, to spark this story.

After living in our house for almost nine years, we finally decided to remodel our kitchen. We put in new cabinets, a new sink, and a new microwave. We were without a working kitchen for about six weeks, which was tough. But in the end, our kitchen turned out wonderfully. I used a Collection sketch to inspire this layout about the remodel.

If you are not a member of the Simple Scrapper community, you are missing out on a wonderful group of women all dedicated to making scrapbooking an integral yet stress-free part of your life. Check out all the benefits of membership here.

Summer Stories | June Kit

Posted on

Summer is my favorite season. I gleefully bask in the warm weather, inhale the scent of honeysuckles, and devour ripe peaches. So when I spied this new paper from Simple Stories, I was inspired to create a kit to reflect my love of summer.
