I created a relaxed natural look by stamping the leaves in a green ombre and off setting a lot of their accent stamps. The little dots are from the Love Notes set.

For my second project I created a monotone card with greys and distressed the ink a bit for another relaxed/aged look. I loved how if you use certain combinations of these stamps they can also look like feathers. ๐Ÿ™‚

Have you checked out the Simple Stories I am… Collection yet? It is jam packed with positive messages and I LOVE the truths that it speaks. I think a lot of people have used this collection as a way to create layouts and albums about themselves which I think is such a beautiful idea. Sometimes we just need to remind ourselves how truly wonderful we are as human beings and that we are in fact… enough. Instead of creating a layout for myself, I decided to use the collection to create cards to give to some very special friends of mine who could use a little reminder here and there of how great they are.

Dream catchers are one of my favorite symbols and I loved the little sticker included in the kit. I decided to make it a little bit bigger and hang some positive statements from it.

For this card I loved the idea of combining the bicycle and the journey statement.

Feathers are another one of my favorite symbols and I was very excited to put this card together.

For this last card I used Papertrey Ink’s Circle Scribbles to create a little texture behind the sentiment statements. How incredible are these positive messages?!! I love them! ๐Ÿ™‚
