We often struggle with borders in Design Space as the largest we can cut with a Cricut is 11.49 x 11.49 and our layout is 12x12. But adding a border to a Simple SVG makes the 11.49" work out just right. Simples are always 11.49 x 11.49 and the border is perfectly sized.

Inspire, monthly membership has a feature class each month and June is all about BORDERS. Cricut and Design Space will help us add even more details and fun features to our layouts.

Enroll in Inspire before June 1st and you will also receive this month Border Bonus! This is 4 fun summer themed borders to be added to your Simple Layouts.

I love sharing our stories with my family, but I decided there had a better way to create layouts that was, well, simple. Simples were born!

  • A combination of photo mats and a layout sketch, the Simple SVG is easy to cut with Design Space and a Cricut™ or any other svg electronic die cutting machine.

  • The tool kit includes 5 different sized templates that match the sizes of the photo mats in the Simples.

  • The clear acrylic templates are used to crop 4x6 photos to fit the Simple photo spaces.

Simples also have an optional shadow layer to add a double matted look to your layouts.

Here is how they work!

Join us in INSPIRE and let's scrapbook simple together.

"I don't know what to say, I don't like my handwriting, I feel weird about sharing all the details"

Ask any scrapbooker, what is the last thing you add to your layout and I bet most will say the journaling! For some reason, we freeze like deer in the headlights when it's time to journal. And yet, that is almost as important as the photos! Let's tackle a few hurdles.

What to say? I like to think about what I would tell someone as showed them this photo. "Oh this is where Grace was trying to get Nana to jump in the pool with her!" If you think of journaling as you sharing the photos on your phone with a friend, it is not so daunting!

Handwriting?? I know I know you work super hard on the layout and it is "GORGEOUS" and then your handwriting "ruins" it. I know I know I have heard that! Ok. First your handwriting is a wonderful addition to the layout and years later will honestly be the part that your family loves but I get it. So here is a sweet trick. Add your handwriting on a secret tab that tucks behind your journaling spot and let Cricut do the writing! This secret tab can help with handwriting issue and also not sharing all the details.

PS I love the way this title worked out. Here is the Design Space link so you can use this one.
