"The Story of Us" Simple Stories Design Team Projects

This wonderful line of papers and embellishments from Simple Stories is, perhaps, one of my all-time favorite Wedding/Anniversary lines ever published. The muted colors work great with any color scheme, double sided papers offer endless options from woodgrain (see below) to stripes, arrows, dots, butterflies, and of course hearts.
 The embellishment collection includes a 48 piece cardstock die cut ephemera bits and pieces pack (used throughout the samples) and a collection of 28 Decorative Metal Brads and Tags (see flower's center and several other locations throughout these samples).
 I had fun layering several bits and pieces here along with a few brads:
 I appreciate the inclusion of this 4x6 card found on the 4x6 Horizontal Journaling Card Elements paper which lends itself to the perfect anniversary card.
 Doilies layered with hearts, and birds create this cover embellishment on a mini-album I created using "The Story of Us" Simple Stories paper line along with photos from my nephew's September 2014 wedding (Congrats Tim and Melissa!).
 The tabbed chipboard pages have tiny stickers from the 12x12 sticker sheet, I used  Charcoal Cat Eye Inks around some of the edges after I sanded them with the Tim Holtz sanding tool:
 Two hinged rings hold it all together:
