A New Simple Stories Sketch and a Giveaway!

I've got another Life Documented sketch available for download at Simple Stories today! Here's a look at the sketch:


If you want to download the full sketch with measurements and placements be sure to visit the Simple Stories blog and check out my post. You can find the link to download the full sketch right under the picture of the sketch.

Here's a look at my layout based on the sketch:


For the last few layouts that I've created with Simple Stories products, I've been using the Sn@p! Sets. I love the large variety of cards and designs and it's made putting layouts together super easy. I even used the cards for the strips on the left page of my layout. The largest card is 4x6 and those strips are 9" long. To do that I cut two strips and hid the seam behind the hearts.

Simple Stories Giveaway

During the last Sketch Week I did a giveaway for a Simple Stories leather album and some Pocket Pages that went unclaimed. So, today we're going to try that again!

I will be randomly selecting one person to win:


A Simple Stories Album (color and size choice is all yours!) 
 
 
 
I am in love with the Faux Leather Albums and use them myself. The quality of both construction and look is fantastic. I especially love the stitching and metal accents.


The winner will also get Pocket Pages to use in their new album! 

You can see the different designs in the variety pack below (my favorite!)




I personally love the choices in the variety pack but you can also find a design you like (you can click here to see them all) and just get that one design. My favorite things about the Pocket Pages is that they are true to size and they have enough room to add dimensional embellishments.


To be eligible for the giveaway leave a comment on this post AND my post at Simple Stories. Be sure to use the same name on both posts so I know who is who! I'll randomly select one winner and announce them this Friday.
