Family Fun with Simple Stories 24/7

I really enjoy this style of memory keeping.  It is really fun to work with the smaller sized journal cards, but still embellish them any way I want.  I also really appreciate the flat pages that easily fit into my scrapbook albums, plus it is a little faster than making single pages.  And, it's such a great way to incorporate something about everyone.   
Last spring my family and I made a point of visiting a different park each day of our break and each of these pages represents a park.  I thought it would be a great fit to document the memory with Simple Stories' new 24/7 collection.  The vibrant colors are a fun palette to go along with the beautiful spring photos.
I love to mix alphabets together - colors, sizes, texture.  These cork alphabets from Little Yellow Bicycle mix so well with the red and blue cardstock stickers from Simple Stories.
This calendar is a stamp from the Simple Stories Sn@p collection.  I used Ranger Ink to stamp it on to the grid patterned paper and then added that to the cork paper along with some cardstock sticker sentiments.  The Xyron Mega Runner is perfect for putting the journal cards together.
These journal cards make it sooooooo easy to add your memories in your own handwriting.  And the bright colors are really pretty.
These Little Yellow Bicycle Cork alphabets blended perfectly with this collection and added a nice dimension to the flatter cardstock sticker alphas without bulking up the page too much.  I used my Xyron Mega Runner to adhere the patterned paper together.
Love this old typewriter.  The journal card was already decorated this way, I just added the journaling and the sentiment "now" to the card with the Simple Stories cardstock alphabet stickers.
These cork scrabble tiles add some wonderful texture to the sentiment.

Thank you for stopping by today,
