Tip of the day—Scrapbooking Made Easy

Today, we have a guest post from Jade Wilson of MemoryWorks.  Thanks Jade for taking the time to teach us!  Remember that Jade will be taking part in this year’s Ladies Night Out at Faith UMC.  I hope you’ll join us!

“Where do I start?” “What do I need?” “It seems so expensive!” “It seems too complicated!”

These are just a few of the things you might think when you think about starting to scrapbook. It can seem very overwhelming to visit a big box scrapbooking store and look at all of the things available. It doesn’t have to be though! Anyone can scrapbook and it doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive.

Simple Stories is a totally new concept in scrapbooking that makes the process simple and painless for anyone! All you need to create a beautiful scrapbook in a matter of minutes is 1 Simple Stories kit, photos that you love, a pair of scissors (or a straight edge cutter) and some pre-divided album pages! That’s it!

Each Simple Stories kit comes with everything you need to create a beautiful scrapbook album. All you do is cut apart the element pieces and slide them into the pre-divided album pages. Add photos of your choice along with some journaling and Viola’, you have a beautiful album in no time!


With the perfectly coordinated stickers you can easily embellish your cut apart elements and photos to your liking and no one will ever know how easy it really was! All of the cut apart element pieces are double sided so really you’ll be creating two pages at one time! The total cost for one complete 20 page album (assuming you have scissors) is $26.99! Add a post bound album from a local craft store (as cheap as $5.00 on sale) and your album is complete!

Can you imagine? A completed scrapbook for under $40.00 – INCLUDING the album! As a special for the attendees of the Faith United Methodist Church Ladies Night Out Event, you can get the Simple Stories kit for $18.89 and the Divided Album Pages for $5.40 PLUS free shipping on your order!  If you are outside of the Knoxville area and still want to take part in a little discount, Jade is extending the 10% off of their Simple Stories order to you as well.  While she can’t give out-of-towners the free shipping, if you mention that you saw this post on my blog when you email her your order, she’ll apply the discount.
