Hello friends! It's Jennifer here on the blog today to share with you another fantastic Simple Stories collection!  Winter Farmhouse is full of eye catching prints and embellishments that are perfect to document your snow activity photos!  Honestly, I'm not a big fan of the cold weather but I do love a good winter line!  And Winter Farmhouse does not disappoint! I  began with the beautiful wood grain print of the B side of Feelin' Frosty as my background.  I  then layered a few of my favorite prints across the center of the page:   both prints of Cuddle Up and the plaid on the B side of the 4x6 Elements.

Using plaid white cardstock, I cut a snowflake wreath using a cut file from the Silhouette shop and adhered it around my photo ( #238513 by Paige Evans).     As a focal point, I   used one of the larger journaling spots from the Journal Bits and Pieces then adhered the cute yellow gingham heart with pop dots.  For my title, I  used the "hello winter" sentiment found on the 6x12 Chipboard as well as added the yellow mittens from the Bits and Pieces

Underneath my title, I  added one of the smaller journaling spots which are the perfect size to add the date.   You can also see one of the many die cut snowflakes that I  added around my wreath to accent. 

I  adhered die cuts from both the Bits and Pieces packs around my wreath using pop dots on a few to add dimension. I  love the contrast of the yellow gold against the blues and greys of the background print. 

Here, I  utilized the snowflake die cuts to accent my wreath as well as this adorable "sled rides" sign. 

I  love the little red cardinals found in the Bits and Pieces. I   had to adhere one to the top of my wreath as they always remind me of my mom.

Hello friends! It's Jennifer on the blog to share another awesome Simple Stories Christmas collection! Holly Jolly includes the traditional red and green holiday colors along with touches of pink and black for contrast  I  began with the Red/Dots sheet from the Simple Basics Kit as my background. I then adhered the eye catching plaid of Cozy Christmas along with Oh What Fun in the middle of my page. 

 I  used the whimsical die cut words from the Bits and Pieces pack for my title; they look perfect adhered right next to my photo! For accent, I  added a few Enamel Dots as well as wood veneer stars from my stash. 

I  wanted to document a favorite Christmas Eve photo of my kids with their cousins from a couple years ago!  The Journal Bits and Pieces includes these little half circle sentiments that are perfect to tuck under pictures or other embellishments! I  also added two sentiment stickers found on the bottom half of the Combo Sticker sheet. 

Once I  adhered my photo, I  created a banner of sorts with bakers twine and embellishments from the collection! I  combined three pieces in the Journal Bits and Pieces to create a tag for my journaling.  I  adhered a cute multi-colored Christmas tree from the Bits and Pieces behind the tag to add dimension.

I  love the little pennants with sentiments from the Journal Bits and Pieces! I  adhered one with foam tape layered with a journal circle and multi-colored tree.  I  used a hole punch on the circle so I  could string it through my bakers twine.  

It was tough to decide on which die cuts to use as there are so many cute shapes and sentiments!  Here, I  affixed this Santa with a mini wood clothespin to my bakers twine.

Hi friends! It's Jennifer on the blog today to share an altered project I  created with the new Say Cheese Christmas!  I  picked up a chipboard advent calendar at a local craft store and thought this collection would be adorable! I  love the traditional red and greens Christmas colors as well as the pink and light blue!

I  cut 2x2 inch squares of a background pattern followed by adhering a smaller square on top. For both pieces, I  used a circle hand punch to create a notch to line up to the chipboard.  I  then used my sewing machine to stitch around the edges for extra accent.  

On each square, I  used embellishments from the Bits and Pieces and Combo Sticker sheet.  I  had SN@P Number Stickers in my stash and used different colors to mark each day.  

Here, I  used the cute banner from the Combo Sticker sheet and adhered it with pop dots.  I cut the banner where the two boxes meet.  I  also added some coordinating enamel dots from my stash! 

There are so many cute, whimsical shapes included in Say Cheese Christmas!  I  tried to use pop dots on the larger shapes and adhere them at an angle.  For contrast, I  adhered my numbers stickers to a circle embellishment or one that I  hand punched from patterned paper. 

For my last square, I  used the multi-colored "25" found on the Combo Sticker Sheet. I  adhered my number with pop dots adding a poinsettia die cut underneath.
