How do I use Simple Stories kits to scrapbook my memories, fast!

Preserving your photos and memories inside a scrapbook doesn’t have to take a lot of time or be difficult to do. In fact, it can be quite easy, especially when you use Simple Stories kits!

Simple Stories is a fast, easy way to scrapbook a lot of memories—even a whole year’s worth—in a very short amount of time. Your finished album will look like you spent a lot of time creating it, but only you will know just how easy it was to create!

Here’s how you do it…

1. Select a Simple Stories kit.

Each Simple Stories kit contains 180 pieces, including cut-apart cardstock pieces, photo and journaling mats, border strips, transparency overlays, patterned paper, alphabet stickers, and more. All of the pieces are designed to fit perfectly inside We R Memory Keepers pocket pages. Choose the style that works best with your photos, grab some pocket pages, and you’re ready to begin!

2. Start assembling your pages.

Using your trimmer, cut apart the cardstock pieces. Slide them inside the pocket pages. Add your photos, along with any photo or journaling mats, border strips, or other kit pieces. Mix and match the pieces however you wish!

3. Embellish your pages.

Jazz up your pages (if desired) using the included alphabet stickers, patterned paper, transparency overlays, and more.

4. Step back and admire your work!

Congratulations—you just created an entire album, full of memories, in no time flat!
