Simple SVGs are a combination of photo mats, journaling spaces and Simple Sketches! Adding your Cricut to your scrapbook layout planning makes this so so easy and yes simple. Here is the easiest way to make these work for you.

  1. Gather your 12x12 Basic White Cardstock. Yes, I think the easiest way to learn to use Simples is stay with all white cardstock.

  2. Grab your Cricut Explore or Maker and a 12x12 light blue mat. Yes the light blue mat is the best choice for paper crafters. PS Here is a discount mat that I have had great luck with!

  3. Download your favorite Simple SVGs and add to Design Space.

  4. Cut-a-bunch! Yes, spend some time and just "cut simples!" I keep my collection in these cases.

Now you are ready to SIMPLE.

No no no ... we just don't talk about it any more. Why do I scrapbook?

Well, no I wasn't bored! I have boxes and boxes of photos and albums for my kids as they were growing up. No, I never finished because we were really busy making more memories! But I have to tell you some of my most favorite memories are sitting with my now grown children and looking through albums. And now, I have wonderful grandchildren and a phone full of photos. But the idea of pulling out ALL the sketches, idea books, supplies and tools and embellishments and and and just makes my head hurt. But I really want to be the family story teller and the keeper of the albums. Simple SVGs were born! My Cricut does the cutting and all I need to do is attach the photos. I can phoof the layout as much or as little as want.


For many years, scrapbooks somehow became more about the layouts and the stuff you added while the photos and memories seemed less important. I think the photos should be the star of my books and I make sure when I design Simple SVGs, more is best! More photos are better than just the one perfect stand out. Many times are stories are multi layered and not just instagram perfect.


It is my goal to help you get your photos out of phone, grab your Cricut, cardstock and paper and SIMPLE, you have a fun layout to share.
