Enjoy The Season!

Enjoy The Season!

Hello Simple Stories friends!  It’s Jeanne here today and I’m happy to be sharing some Christmas cards made with the Say Cheese Christmas Collection.   This collection captures the childhood delight of Christmas as only the most magical place on earth can do!

The collection is filled with bright colorful papers in traditional red and green with a touch off pink and pastel blue.  The patterns are candy cane stripes, sprinkle dots, poinsettias, snowflakes, and everything nice.

There are two sets of bits and pieces available in this collection.  The iconic bits and pieces that include lots of holiday images like ornaments, presents, flowers and sentiments.  There’s also a Happy Kids Bits and Pieces pack that includes all the cute kids you see on my cards today.  

The two packs of bits and pieces are sized perfectly to work together so you don’t have to worry about mixing and matching die cuts from both packs.

The sticker sheet that comes with the collection kit also has lots of sentiments, images and tabs too.  Again, everything is perfectly color coordinated so you know it will be a perfect match every time.

I had lots of fun mixing and matching the papers from this bright collection.  I always start by cutting the 12” papers into 6” squares.  I layout all the images on a piece of plastic the size of my card face and lay it over different pattern papers.  The clear plastic allows me to pick up the entire arrangement and see it over the papers before I commit and adhere everything in place.

This set includes 6x12” Chipboard Stickers too.  These are my favorite to work with!   I love how the thick study pieces add dimension.  Because they have adhesive backing, they couldn’t be easier to make with.

This collection makes me feel as though I’m seeing the holidays through the eyes of a child.  What a magical world! 

You’ll have lots of fun making fun holiday cards with the different elements in the Say Cheese Christmas Collection, and because the fun is contagious, your recipients will be smiling too!
