Simple Stories + KBS Design Team Up Week!

It is going to be one exciting week here at KBS with a special Design Team Up with Simple Stories!


Oh happy day, I’d say! Designers from both companies have teamed up to bring you a fabulous week of inspiration combining the use of both products. I do believe it could just knock your socks off. :) I’ve seen what my girls have done and I’ve heard tell from Simple Stories that theirs are just as amazing. It helps when a company–such as Simple Stories–has such amazing products to work with!

i. am. so. excited.

I just can’t wait to see all that goodness!

These designer team ups are some of my very favorite times at KBS.

I’ve been very lucky to have been in this industry, not only have met all these great people who share a similar passion, but to have made so many amazing friends because of it. So when I get an opportunity to work with someone like Layle Koncar, who also works with Simple Stories, I thank my lucky stars to not only get to benefit from her wonderful talent, but I get to call her friend. And that’s a pretty cool thing on account-a she’s pretty awesome.

And speaking her awesomeness, let’s check out the first of this team up and look at her magical page.

[ Design | Thank My Lucky Stars (title+stars) ]

Totally diggin’ the large ‘paint chip’ style paper! Hello! And I love what she did with the handwritten title and stars.

Here’s what Layle has to say:

This sentiment from Kerri’s Thank My Lucky Stars kit has always been one of my favorite!  I feel so blessed to have these 2 great boys in my life.  I have to be honest though, I never thought I’d be the mom of boys; I always thought there’d be a girl or two in there, but I always say things happen for a reason!

I love the mix of fonts in this kit.  I thought it would be fun to cut the ‘lucky’ and stars from some glitter paper to have them stand out a bit more from the rest of the title, but because the boys are in this photo with me, I thought that might be a bit too much :)  So instead, I cut the title and stars from a woodgrain paper and then used some gold Stickles on ‘lucky’ and the stars after they were cut.  Perfect!  The masculinity of the woodgrain showing through underneath the glitter is a good balance, don’t you think?!

I do, Miss Layle. I do!


And we couldn’t do something like this
with little bit of a sale, now could we?

We are just getting started here this week with this whole shindig,
so you won’t want to miss a day!

Be sure to run over to Simple Stories’ blog and see what they have goin’ on.
I’m headed there right now. :)

    There is a little bling to satisfy the girlie in us but it doesn’t over-power the masculine side. Love the paint chip paper. Have to have that. Great layout.
