Merry & Bright!
Hi there Simple Stories friends! Nathalie with you today with a new project that brings the joy of the Christmas season to a layout. When I saw the new Simple Stories Say Cheese Christmas, I knew that the colorful designs and papers will be perfect to document this picture of our Goddaughter as an elf last Christmas.
I started by creating a fun title for the page. I chose an alphabet from the Silhouette store, and cut each letter from different papers from the Say Cheese Christmas collection. In addition, I arranged the letters in order -for the title- and created an offset around the words. I cut this offset from white cardstock and used it as a base to handstitch the letters of the title together.
For the background of the page, I chose the Sn@p Basics Hickory/Cream grid paper . I chose to fussy cut a few florals form the Making Spirits Bright paper and attached them around the outer edge of the background using foam adhesive
Once the title was glued to the background, the layout came together quickly, First i used a few of the papers to frame the picture and add layers behind it. I tucked the picture under the title, and started to add small embellishments around it,
All the cute and festive stickers and ephemera pieces were perfect to add sentiment to this page. Plus they are so easy to combine that it makes this page come together in just a few minutes.
I hope this has inspired you to check the new Simple Stories Say Cheese collection. You are going to fall in love with the designs, colorful images and how versatile it can be.
Til' next time
