Hello and happy Friday! Linsey here sharing my latest altered project, this super sweet love note box decorated with the beautiful Kissing Booth Collection! It's a fun and easy way to spread the love this Valentine's season!

My box was a 4x4x4" blank canvas and so the 4x4 Elements were a perfect fit, covering every side with a different and lovely design. So quick and simple! So L.O.V.E that!

Each side was prettied up even more using a variety of 6x12 Chipboard, 4x6 Stickers and Puffy Stickers. Just as in every Simple Stories collection, everything in Kissing Booth coordinates beautifully together making it so easy to mix and match elements and papers. I'm definitely crushing on this collection!

The 3x4 Elements are great for jotting down a quick note to a loved one! Place the box in a family-friendly area along with blank note cards and a pen--then have fun checking the box each day to see who leaves a note! The idea is to encourage one another, build each other up, let them know you love them. The idea is simply LOVE. Spread the love and see what happens!

And that's all for me! I hope you've enjoyed my love note box project and feel inspired to create something with the Kissing Booth collection too! Until next time, happy crafting!


Can you believe Christmas has come and gone and just like that, it's time to look forward to a brand new year in 2019! Hello friends, Linsey here today sharing some fun and easy New Year's decorations that are sure to make you the toast of the town (or at least, of your own home)!  All you need is the Simple Stories 2019 Simple Set and a bit of inspiration to make this New Year's Eve a sparkling event, no matter how you celebrate!

There are so many ideas for DIY party decor these days and one of my favorites is paper rosette pinwheels! They are easy, quick and make for a fabulous showcase wherever you place them. Make them in a few sizes, then arrange on a wall behind a table or bar for an eye catching backdrop that will have everyone oohing and ahhing! Or hang them from the ceiling at varying heights to add pizazz to any area! There are lots of ways to incorporate rosette pinwheels into any party decor--your imagination is the limit!

Party photo booths are all the rage right now and so are all the fun props that go with it! You can buy them, but why would you when they are super easy to make yourself? Delight your guests with custom handmade photo booth props and save your money for the good champagne! Cheers!

What's a New Year's Eve celebration without party hats? Ring in the New Year right with festive hats for all to wear! When the clock strikes midnight, hats will be off to you!!

A paper banner always adds a festive touch to any decor. Make your own and hang from a mantle, wall or anywhere you want! A banner makes everything better!

And that's a wrap! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you've been inspired by some of these fun and easy DIY decorations and will try them for yourself! Wishing you and yours a very happy, blessed and prosperous New Year!!


December is upon us and so also comes all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season! Hello friends, Linsey here today sharing my latest altered project using the super fun holiday collection by Simple Stories, Merry & Bright! I loved every minute of creating this project! I hope you'll grab a warm cuppa your favorite drink and come along with me as I share my festive holiday house!

This collection is brimming with delightful holiday sweetness and I wanted to capture it all! Each little "room" within my holiday house is decorated with elements from Merry & Bright, like the puffy stickers, chipboard, bits & pieces and more!

Creating a tiny scene for a few of the boxes was so enjoyable! I love the little presents tied with ribbons, the rustic floral arrangements and the charming sleigh, to name a few. Everything fits just right into each of the rooms and makes for the cutest Christmas house!

The Washi Tape was a perfect fit wrapped around the outside of the house. I love the how easy it is to add washi tape to my altered projects!

A Santa is standing in the main box as snowflakes and hearts silently fall, wishing a Merry Christmas to one and all! I adore his rosy cheeks and vintage-style attire. There's so much to love in this darling holiday collection and I do so love it all!

And that's my Merry & Bright Christmas House! Thank you so much for stopping by and allowing me to share a bit of holiday inspiration today! I hope you've enjoyed it and until next time, happy holiday crafting!
