Simple Stories Review & Giveaway!

Today I have an awesome giveaway to share with you all! I'm always on the lookout for great albums and Simple Stories has hit the mark with their new faux leather albums that come in both 12x12 and 6x8. I had the chance to check out the teal 12x12 album and a variety pack of the page protectors recently.

The albums are just beautiful! I love the stitching and the cover looks like it will hold up well. I like the metal corners and I know they will stay nice over time. 

I love the variety of page protectors offered to go with the albums. I don't tend to scrapbook in a pocket page style but I decided to put together this quick page of the girl's first day of preschool using the Smarty Pants collection. I put this together in probably 15-20 minutes. The hardest part was editing and printing the photos. I love that the slots are all in the inner part of the page protector - nothing will fall out of the top! The page protectors are nice and thick as well - I don't think I will have to worry about them tearing or falling apart. The pockets are also true to size - there is not need to trim down 3x4 and 4x6 photos and cards - they will fit the first time! 

If you are not a pocket page scrapbooker, Simple Stories also has 12x12 page protectors that go with the albums as well. As quickly as this page went together, I might be persuaded to include a few pocket pages here and there! 


Now, here's the fun part! I get to give away one faux leather album of the winner's choice (either 12x12 or 6x8) and one package of page protectors.

Just leave a comment here on my blog and I will choose a random winner next Monday, November 4th! International comments are welcome!
