Now accepting Pre-Orders for Simple Stories: Scrapbooking Made Easy

If you’re interested in purchasing the SIMPLE STORIES “Life Documented” kit by MEMORY WORKS, I am now accepting Pre-Orders! :)

If you are looking to get some quick scrapping done, or always wanted to scrapbook, but didn't know how, Simple Stories may be for you!

WHAT IS Simple Stories?
The concept of Simple Stories is just that: SIMPLE. Take photos, get them in an album, embellish, journal, DONE. Sure, we scrapbookers are creative types, and we love to make more detailed and complicated layouts a lot of the time. But what if you’re super busy or are daunted by boxes of photos "to be scrapped"?

Maybe your solution is Simple Stories. Take your 4×6 photos (no cropping necessary), slip them into divided page protectors (no adhesive needed), slip in some embellishment by way of nicely designed accents made from heavy cardstock, jot down some journaling on a predesigned card, and you’re done. It's that easy!

Check out THIS great post on the Simple Stories blog to look at everything closely.

The response to this new product has been so amazing that I’m halfway afraid it’s going to sell out before I can get it to everyone who wants one.

Hence, PRE-ORDERS :) This way, I will have your payment already in hand by mid-January when the kit becomes available. Standby your e-mail though, because I’ll notify you when to place your actual order!

Here is how it will work:

1. Decide which item(s) you want from the list below and email me your order.
Don't forget to include your shipping address and how you plan on paying:
(Check or Paypal).
2. I will calculate the appropriate tax for your city/county
and email you back with a final total.
4. Then you can send me your payment in the mail or through Paypal.

When Memory Works releases the kit and the items become available (Mid-January estimate), I will e-mail you once more with instructions on how to finalize your order. (Keep an eye out for my email!!!)

To anticipate some questions you may have about the above products…

Simple Stories “Life Documented” kit by Memory Works:

Exactly what items come in the kit?
~ Please click here for specifics on the exact items you get in this kit.

What is the quality of the cardstock items?
~ I haven’t personally seen the kit, of course, but the Simple Stories blog states that “you’ll love the quality of this super-thick, heavy-weight cardstock!”

Are the cardstock items pre-cut?
~ No, they will come as a 12×12 sheet and you will cut them apart yourself. They are sized to fit perfectly within the pockets of the WRMK divided page protectors.

Will this kit allow me to scrapbook an entire year’s worth of photos or an entire Project 365?
~ This truly depends on how generously or sparingly your use the elements of the kit, and how many photos you include in your project. For example, if you’re doing a “year in review” type of album, the kit does include (12) Monthly Title Cards with a spot for journaling on the back (which would show on the next page in your album). Everything is double-sided, so it does “double duty” in your album. With all the additional elements and patterned paper provided, I would feel comfortable saying you could complete an entire “Year in Review” album with just this one “Life Documented” kit.

But that’s just my own judgement … You do what you feel is right for you. If you feel safer ordering 2 kits right from the get-go, I would do that. If you have extras leftover at the end of your project, whatever it may be, you can certainly use these elements on regular scrapbook page layouts.

We R Memory Keepers pocket page protectors:

Are the pockets on the front, back, or both sides of the page protectors?
The pockets themselves are on the front side of the protector only; the back side of the protector is smooth. Obviously, whatever you put in the pockets, the backside of that will show on the next page of your album (if that makes sense, LOL!). That’s why Simple Stories has everything double-sided, and you get double duty out of all the cardstock elements.

So, as I said above, if you’d like to place a PRE-ORDER for the Simple Stories “Life Documented” kit, or the We R Memory Keepers albums or Page Protectors, e-mail me at Please include:

1. Item(s) requested and cost
2. Shipping address
3. Payment method – check, money order, or Paypal

~ I strongly prefer Paypal, and will e-mail a Paypal invoice to you ASAP
~ If paying by check or money order, I’ll e-mail you back with my address

Let me know if you have any questions or concerns :) If you know of anyone who plans to order Simple Stories “Life Documented,” or may be interested in learning more about it, please send them my way! THANKS!!!
