25 Days Has December

25 Days Has December

Hello again Simple Stories fans! Chantalle with you today to share a countdown-style page using the beautiful festive ‘Very Merry’ collection.

Instax snaps are a favourite of mine for scrapping. They are just small enough to really draw the eye in and one can use a couple on a 12x12 size page.

The design of this page is pretty simple, focusing the attention through a central band with busier pattern paper on either side. For this reason, I have kept the central paper pretty neutral, cutting several strips from a sheet of ’Tis the Season’. 

The outer botanical print is the 4x6 Vertical Elements from the collection. I wanted to pull out pops of the red, green and charcoal, so I’ve kept this busy print further out, then brought the red & black checked print in to co-ordinate with the large ’25’ from a pack of Very Merry Pocket Pieces.

To give the feeling of a little countdown, I have also added some numbers close to 25 from the top of the page. These are from a pack of Very Merry Stickers and would be fantastic for a planner or December album at this time of year.

The page has been finished off with some Clear Stickers (cut in half to go further!) some mini banners from a pack of Bits & Pieces and a touch of stamping.

A super simple page but I love the bold title and centralised theme.

Thanks so much for joining me!
