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!

Project Life: Quirky Week 22

Happy Friday! I made these really fun Project Life pages using products from Freckled Fawn and the Happy Core Kit.

The word stickers I'm obsessed with are from Simple Stories. This is a top three item in my pages! Of course I always add washi.

The photo where my daughter is playing with blocks in the rubber floor inspired all the colors in this layout. It was such a happy and fun week I wanted this layout to show that.

 This is a pretty simple title card. The card is from the Happy Core Kit, the word from Simple Stories, the label is a freebie from Kaitlin Sheaffer and the rest is from Freckled Fawn.

I also wanted to mimic my daughter's heart glasses around the layout and I specifically bought the heart glasses acrylic pieces when she got that glasses. Also the emoji is inspired by that.

This was my bestie when I was a kid! My Glowworm, Mia! Can you spot the 80's in this photo? The stamp roller is from Amy Tangerine.

 To glue the clear alphas I used the Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid Glue. To color the alphas on the right I used the Tombow Dual Brush Pens.

To glue most of my embellishments I used the Tombow Mono Adhesive +. The tag on the right was already done because I had a bunch DIY pre-made of embellishments.

 I did all of my journaling with my typewriter. If you plan to subscribe to the Oh Deer Me Kit use my name (Jennie Garcia) and my email (jennifer.garciabones@gmail) when you are checking out and you can get from $5 to $15 in store credit. ;)


Here is a process video of how it all came together!

I hope you enjoyed these pages! Don't forget to follow me on Social Media to see all of my projects and a few fun behind the scenes.

Anita y Su Mundo DT Call

Saludos! Hoy les voy a compartir mi entrada para el Design Team Call de Anita y Su Mundo! Hay muchas entradas hermosas pero aún así quiero probar mi suerte. Uno de los requisitos es hacer un mini album y un projecto libre. 
Este mini album mide 3x3 y es de Fancy Pants Designs al igual que el papel y los accesorios que utilizé en la portada. Yo hice un tassel utilizando twine y le añadí un corazón de fieltro. 


 En el interior comenzé con una nota hablando de mis hijas que son el tema de este mini.

 En la parte de atrás de la nota añadí lentejuelas y un flair button. Si te interesa saber como hago mis fotos 3x3 puedes ver este VIDEO. Está en inglés pero me puedes preguntar si tienes dudas.

Ultimamente estoy fascinada con estampar directamente en mis fotos. Para poder estampar en la foto asegurate que el papel no sea demasiado glossy, práctica en papel de foto y usa una buena tinta con buenos sellos de estampar.

En mi project life me encanta añadirle detallitos a mis fotos pero el formato 3x3 es demasiado pequeño y no quería que se viera sobrecargado así que me controlé lo mas que pude.

La foto a la derecha esta un poco borrosa pero mis hijas tomaron esa foto y me encantan como se están abrazando. Mi hija se emociona muchísimo cuando uso sus fotos en mis proyectos. Me gusta capturar la historia desde su perspectiva.





Para cerrar los confetti pockets utilizé mi Fuse Tool. Ultimamente vivo enamorada de lentejuelas!

Para mi segundo proyecto hice unas páginas de Project Life.


Me encanta capturar mi vida cotidiana con Project Life. Yo siempre pensé que en algún momento se iba a poner monótono pero no es así. Cada semana es distinta con memorias nuevas. 

Esta semana fué muy divertida porque fue San Valentín y pude capturar detallitos sencillos que me hacen feliz.

Una de mis partes favoritas es hacer la tarjeta para el título de la semana. Las memorias son para mis hijas pero jugar con papel es para mi!

Le tomé una foto al reporte escolar de mi hija y corté el comentario de su maestra porque tenía un mensaje muy lindo.

Cuando un libro me gusta mucho lo incluyo en mi semana con un pequeño resumen o mis líneas favoritas en el libro.

Me encanta usar mi maquinilla de escribir para añadir un poco de documentación en las fotos. Me inspiré en Kelly Purkey para escribir con un bolígrafo alrededor del plato de comida.

Espero que hayan disfrutado mi entrada. Son projectos que me gustan muchísimo y los comparto con mucho amor. Suerte al resto de los participantes! Que tengan un lindo día!
