Simple Stories Inspiration

New on our shelves is two fabulous collections from Simple StoriesHappy Day is perfect for all of those birthday pictures and Baby Steps will help you create adorable projects featuring your little ones.

Today I have some inspiration to show you using Baby Steps.  All projects created by Simple Stories' Design Team member Kim Holmes.

I am in LOVE with the new BABY STEPS Collection!

Of course, it helps that my second grandbaby is on the way! I love the current trend in mini-books where all the elements and pages are different sizes but all part of the same book. The Simple Stories system of elements is perfect for this sort of creation! I worked with almost every part of the collection for this Baby's First Year Photo Album:

After using the 6 x 6 Paper pad for the base pages, I used the 4 x 6 elements for additional inside pages. The 1st - 12th month journaling spots are perfect elements to place across from the monthly photo space. I love that they are 2-sided and the back adds extra space for more journaling and/or photos. Every month has a page for a photo, a card for monthly milestones, and two additional mini elements for added photos and/or journaling.

Here is a sample of what month #2 looks like:
