Hello friends! It’s Dorymar on the blog today! I am super excited to share with you a beautiful mini album I designed with the stunning O Holy Night 12x12 Simple Set. It is perfect to decorate your living room during the Holidays, put in a special place at home or to give as a present to a very special relative or friend!

For me and my family, Christmas is the most special time of the year, when we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and give thanks for all the blessings in our lives. The designs and colors of this collection are perfect to document such an amazing time of the year!

On the cover, I used a Silhouette cut file to create a manger and with one of the collection’s 4x6 cards, made the image of the Birth of Jesus.

These pages are my favorite, because you can appreciate the true meaning of Christmas. You can combine the stickers with the elements of the 4 x 6 cards to create the Nativity.

The collection has golden details that highlight all the elements and colors of the season. Breathtaking!

I loved how this album came together and can’t wait to put all my special photos in it. Hope it inspired you to document your Holiday season!

Thank you for visiting the blog today! Wishing you lots of fun with your family this


Hello everyone! It's Dorymar on the blog today to share some fun ideas using the beautiful Oh What Fun collection!

The Oh What Fun collection can be used to create so many Holiday-themed crafts such as ornaments, Christmas cards, home decorations, gift bags, tags, layouts, albums and so much more because it's stunning! The options are endless!

This time I designed a beautiful ornament for the Christmas tree, a card, a banner, a gift bag and a crystal block for home decoration.  I used all of the beautiful elements of the collection, cards, stickers, and papers to create these projects.  Love the bright colors and fun designs!

There are so many different elements to choose from in this collection!  I had lots of fun looking through the pieces! I loved all of them and wanted to create a bundle of hand-made crafts to celebrate the Holidays.

The collection invites you to create fun projects like its name, Oh What Fun!

Hope this inspired you to create beautiful projects to celebrate the Holidays with your loved ones!

Happy crafting!


Hello friends, Dorymar here! I’m so happy to share two beautiful mixed media layouts I designed with the stunning Beautiful collection. This collection is gorgeous! It has some details in gold and pastel tones that I loved from the moment I saw it. This time I used photos to document my daughter's 15th birthday. 

For the first layout that I titled Live Beautifully, I used the paper Be Amazing as the base. With a craft knife, I cut the flowers from the paper design to add dimension. I used several pieces of the Live Beautifully paper to add more layers and dimension on the center of the page.

To give texture to the page, I used cheese cloth, lace, stencil paste and mini prills. These elements in combination with the flowers from the papers give the page a vintage touch that when mixed with the colors, die cuts stickers and chipboards of this collection makes the project look elegant and subtle. You can put the page in a shadow box and decorate a wall in the home.


I titled the second layout "Beautiful and Amazing" and I used the Choose Happy paper as the base again, with the craft knife I detached the beautiful flowers from the paper and then added several layers of the Shine Bright and Life Beautifully papers.

With the fussy cutting technique, I cut the letters of the paper from the 4x6 cards and added dimension with foam dots. Around the photo I added texture with stencil paste, cheese cloth and mini prills. I focused on the flowers of the paper design to place the photo and cut flowers with the metal die cuts. When look at the layout, it gives you the feeling that the flowers come out of the photo.

I love how this project turned out! I placed both pages in 12 x 12 frames and will be part of the decoration of my girl's room. I hope this project will inspire you to use the diverse and wonderful Beautiful Collection from Simple Stories. 

Happy Crafting!
