Hello friends! It's Jennifer on the blog today to share a layout I created using the very fun Freezin' Season collection! With the recent negative temperatures in the Midwest we've had a lot of freezing going on! Before it got too cold, my kids indulged me in a little snowy photo shoot (I may or may not have had to bribe them).
I love all of the cut files Simple Stories has to offer in the Silhouette shop! Using a white piece of cardstock, I cut a 10.5x10.5 square of the Crosses Background. Before adhering it to the B side of Frosty Friends, I used my circle punch on multiple patterns to back the negative spaces behind the crosses.
Once I adhered my white cardstock down, I stitched around the edges with my sewing machine. I then added a strip of color at the bottom using the beautiful teal of Brrlow Zero and Snuggle Up. It is here that I affixed my title using the die cut words from the Bits and Pieces pack. You can also spy pieces of the coordinating Washi Tape as well as a cute typed sentiment sticker from the 4x6 Stickers.
For my journaling, I cut apart two of the 3x4 Elements to layer next to my photo. I love that there is always one that has a ledger or notebook print since its one of my favorites! I then pulled in some accents from the 6x12 Chipboard as well as additional Bits and Pieces and stickers from the Combo Sticker sheet. I am a fan of using dimension, so I will usually affix two or more elements with pop dots.
Simple Stories' collections never fail on the variety or amount of embellishments to choose from when constructing your projects! Even a simple sticker tab, such as the one shown, is a nice accent to give additional color and contrast to your page.
Here, at the top of my layout, I used the same plaid print in the Washi tape along with two of the mini pennants from the 4x6 Stickers. It's a good technique to break up white space as well as add color.
