I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: Teresa Collins steals my heart every time and the Tell Your Story Collection Pack is no exception. It is adorable, beautiful, sweet, comfortable, playful, and fun! If you’re thinking, “Hmm….that’s a little what love sounds like,” then your absolutely right! It’s wonderful and fun to be in love and that’s exactly what using this paper felt like: wonderful and fun! Normally I spend countless minutes (even hours) matching paper, looking at ideas, trying to form a layout from an endless stupor of a scrapbookers “writer’s block”. This was not so. I gathered some dies, sat down, and the next thing I knew I had a double sided layout and a smile on my face. It was easy. It was effortless. It was fun!
For my first page, I chose my paper, chose two dies to work with, snipped a little here and there and was done! What? Yes! It’s that easy! I used the Quickutz Cookie Cutter Clouds die to give a little more aestheticism to the layering. I then used the A2 Matting Basics to place my pictures and add more pop of color. I didn’t think these matting tools would really ever come in handy, but one use and I’m converted! After cutting a few butterflies and adding raffia, I was done.
My second page was just as easy. This collection pack has so many things that I love about it, but one of the most useful things about it, is that some of the pages are matts or journaling embellishments. Can we all say, “LOVELY” together! Sigh. I used the Quickutz Braid and Knots on this page to “tie” the family theme together and I like how it turned out.

Seriously, when you have a good product, you don’t have to do that much to make something beautiful! I can’t scream loud enough that collection packs are a dream. They give you the paper and the embellishments which make a layout come out of thin air in no time. Go get that little thing called love (in paper form)!
Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!
