Holly Jolly!

Holly Jolly!

Hi It’s Jeanne posting today!  It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas here at Simple Stories.  Today I’m sharing some holiday cards made with the Simple Stories Holly Jolly Collection !

You’ll love the candy stripes, plaids and prints in this fun collection!  There’s a little something for everyone…. pretty prints with florals, ornaments, houses and more!  All my cards today were made with the 6x8” pad of pattern papers and the coordinated Simple Basics Kit of 12” papers that are solid on one side and a polka dot print on the other. 

I had fun making cards with scenes like this one using chipboard houses, and bits and pieces trees, mountains and sentiment.

Everything is color coordinated to match so there’s no worry when mixing and matching the enamel dots, washi, bits and pieces, chipboard, and stickers.

The washi has just the right amount of adhesive. It stays in place where you want it, but if you have to lift it to place in a different location it doesn’t take any of the paper with it. 

The Simple Basics papers are great for adding a solid matt layer to your card base, or breaking up patterns.  I like to alternate solids and prints to keep things from looking too busy.

Stickers from the Mini Sticker Tablet make great sentiments, but there’s lots of image prints, numbers and more so you’ll have lots left over for other projects.  I think I’ll be dressing up my calendar with the stickers if my daughter doesn’t swipe them first!

Did you see the pretty Bow Clips?  These are bows fashioned from pattern paper attached to large GOLD (swoon!) paper clips. They can be tucked on your cards, tags, journaling pages, or how about holding a page on your daily planner?

There’s lots to love here, and plenty of time to make, Make, MAKE!   It’s a SN@P! with Simple Stories Holly Jolly Collection!
