Sketch Magic with Simple Stories!


So many of you are good at putting two and two together. And you're right!

We're thrilled to announce that Scrapbook Generation and Simple Stories have joined forces -- again -- to introduce an exclusive idea book, Scrapbook Generation's Sketch Magic with Simple Stories. The book features all-new sketch blueprints that blend perfectly with the unique format of Simple Stories papers and signature elements for quick and creative scrapbooking.

With our first joint project earlier this year, we described this as a match made in heaven. This time around, it's simply magical! The new book features the highly-anticipated "Say Cheese" collection by Simple Stories, a line perfect for vacations, birthdays, and any time dreams have come true.
 
Like the original Sketch Fusion book, we'll be showing just how easy it is to create stunning traditional layouts with the innovative Simple Stories products.

Designed by creative-duo Allison Davis and Debbie Sanders, Scrapbook Generation's Sketch Magic with Simple Stories showcases 18 fun and functional sketches, along with 18 beautiful full-color layout examples. With exact measurements and positions of photos, papers and elements, Sketch Magic is a must-have resource for anyone who loves the Simple Stories format.

The release of Scrapbook Generation's Sketch Magic with Simple Stories will be timed with the release of the "Say Cheese" collection in mid-August.  (Retailers can place pre-orders by contacting stacey@scrapbookgeneration.com.) A downloadable Sketch Magic e-book -- exactly like the print book -- will be available at scrapbookgeneration.com. 

In addition, we will be one of the first stores to receive the "Say Cheese" collection, and we'll be offering "bundles" including the collection packs and Sketch Magic. No pre-orders this time around. We'll simply keep you informed here as to arrival and release dates and we'll order a ton of the collection packs (and everything else!). Ordering directly from SG will mean you'll be the first to have access to all the fun!

For more information about the new Simple Stories collection, click here. You can also check them out on Facebook. 

Now for some fun. We're giving away one "Say Cheese" collection pack and one Sketch Magic book.  Just let us know what you think by posting a comment and you'll be entered to win.  We'll leave comments open until July 20 and announce the lucky winner on July 21!
