April Lilli Featuring Winter Wonderland from Simple Stories

Hey Everyone! We are half way through January which means you still have 16 more days to get the Winter Wonderland Collection at April Lilli for 20% OFF! 

I made this cluster with the Bits and Pieces, and the 4x6 Sticker Sheet. I also added twine from May Arts.  

 To the cluster of paper I added a 6x6 Paper from the Pad. I always recommend to get the Collection Kit because it comes with the Winter Wonderland 12x12 Sticker Sheet and all the papers. A few of these items are on this sticker sheet.

I added a few items from the 6x12 Chipboard Stickers a and I used Tombow Foam Tabs on the Bits and Pieces.

I hope you enjoyed this layout! Make sure you check out the rest of the team! Stay tuned to February to see what will be the Featured Product next month! 


Winter Wonderland with April Lilli

Hello! This year I'm really lucky to be on the April Lilli Design Team! 
Every month the Design Team will feature a collection to bring you lots of inspiration. 
This month we are featuring Winter Wonderland from Simple Stories

 I've been doing lots of pocket pages and I miss 12x12 layouts so I decided to treat myself to one. I went a little die cut crazy but I love embellishments clusters! 

 This collection has the cutest washi tape Simple Stories has made yet! I also like the little word stickers they've been including in their 4x6 Sticker Sheets

These photos are from January when we had a snowstorm and we built a snowgirl. The snowman from the Chipboard Stickers is doing the same pose. I also added Enamel Dots to the eyes. 


I embellished the mittens from the Bits and Pieces pack with twine and enamel dots. I used a lot of Tombow Foam Tape for the embellishments. 
I hope you enjoyed my layout! Make sure you follow April Lilli on social media for inspiration, giveaways and sales! 
I hope 2017 is amazing for you! :)

Simple Stories: Gather Together

Hey Everyone! This is Jennie with today’s pocket pages using the Gather Together Collection. I also used a few items from Hello Fall. These collections work great together because their colors are very similar.

I used the Bright Sn@p Letter Stickers to number some of the photos. That way I can journal about everything in one or two cards. This spread has a lot of nature photos with oranges and brown. The Gather Together Mini Kit’s Journaling Elements go perfect with them.

I used a Gather Together Journaling Card for my weekly title card. To write the title I used the Hello Fall Combo Cardstock Stickers. I love the font of these alphas. I also used Hello Fall Bits and Pieces. 


I took a screenshot of this meme because Daylights Saving really does drive me crazy. I used this Piles of Smiles pattern because I needed something light to balance all the colors.

The Hello Fall 4x6 Stickers comes with a sheet that has lots fall related words and phrases. Since this right side is very photo heavy I added word stickers to all the photos in the middle row.

I needed an extra card to journal on. I liked this brown one but it was a bit dark so I used correction tape to draw a few lines. After I typed everything I distressed the corners.

I hope you enjoyed these pages! Don’t forget to document your Thanksgiving with the Gather Together Collection. It has turkeys! J

Pretty Little Studio: Oakley Avenue

Today I’m sharing my first pocket pages using the Oakley Avenue Collection! This collection is perfect for documenting Fall!

I love the cut outs from this collection! They are pretty inexpensive so you can buy many! I used Happy Fall and Hello Fall.

Pretty Little Studio Mini ABCs are awesome! This collection has 5 colors and I used 3 of them: Breezy, Golden and Vibrant. 

For the title card I used Hello Hello Paper and Firewood Die Cut Alphas. I normally stamp my dates but this time I tried the alpha stickers and they look really good!

 I used cards from the Apple Cider Set and I even used the packaging. 

I love die cuts and in this layout I used: Fall Faves, Feelin’ Fallish and Orchard Words. Pretty Little Studio recently added wood veneers and acrylic shapes and the quality is amazing! Really gorgeous! Here you can see Fall Leaves Acrylic Shapes and Love This Wood Veneers. They are limited so make sure you get yours soon! 


My journaling is semi-hidden because I wrote it in the under the flips. I typed it in the Fall Rules Paper.

 I hope you enjoyed these Fall Pages! If you are documenting Fall make sure you order Oakley Avenue. Holiday Collections are now in the shop and available for pre-order.

Stay tuned if you want to see the process video!

Happy Place Mini Album

Hey Everyone! Today I'm sharing this cute mini I made with the Happy Place Collection from Fancy Pants Designs. The album is 3x3 and it's also from Fancy Pants.

This album is all about my daughters  so at the beginning I wrote a little note about them.

 On the back of the intro I added sequins and a Freckled Fawn flair button I glued outside of the pocket. I sealed it with my Fuse Tool from WRMK. On the photo on the right I added a few hearts. They took these selfies with my phone and I put them in a collage using Pic Stitch.

I stamped on the apple with a Studio Calico stamp set and the emojis are from A Beautiful Mess.

The alphas are from Fancy Pants and the heart stamp is from Freckled Fawn.

If you want to see how I edit and print my photos check out THIS VIDEO. In that video I also show how to make 3x3 photos.


The secret of stamping in photos is that the paper is not too glossy. I print at home in my Canon Pixma. I use Glossy Paper from Canon but is perfect for stamping. I used to print from Shutterfly and the paper was not ideal for stamping. I use Memento Tuxedo Ink. Stamps are important too. These are Freckled Fawn and they stamp amazing!


The alphas on the right are from Latina Crafter and they are perfect for stamping.

On the right I added to the shaker pocket an arrow, an acrylic heart, a FP button, Color Cast Designs Stars and sequins.

The pompoms and the twine I used for the tassel on the rings are from May Arts Ribbon.

You can see the whole process in this video.

I hope you enjoyed it!
Thanks for visiting! Take Care!
