Hello friends! It's Jennifer here today to share a page with you I  created using the new Country Christmas collection!  If you are one who loves a vintage feel to your Christmas paper than this line is for you!  You also have soft beautiful hues of the traditional reds and greens with light blue and white mixed in.  I  scrapped an older photo of my kids decorating Christmas cookies!  

I  trimmed the B side of Winter Wishes down to 11x11 inches and adhered it to the eye-catching plaid of O Christmas Tree. I  then cut a piece of the Winter White/Dots from the Simple Basic Kits to use at the top half of my page.

I  used a favorite border punch on a strip of the red and white checker of Wonderful Life at the bottom of the Winter White/Dots. I  also adhered a strip of the B side of the 4x4 Elements and stitched through with my sewing machine.  You can also spy one of the three Washi Tapes that are included in the collection! 

At the bottom left of my page, I  used the woodgrain script "Joy" from the 6x12 Chipboard for my title.  I  adhered die cut poinsettias and leaves from the Floral Bits and Pieces as well as added in die cut hearts and a sentiment from the Bits and Pieces pack.

Also included in the collection are Layered Frames (which you have seen in previous lines).  You receive six different frames with varying sizes.  Here, I  used a 4x6 Horizontal Frame to fit my photo.

  I   love the Jolly Bingo Card from the Bits and Pieces and had to find a way to used it! I  tucked it under the edge of my Layered Frame as well as added the cute pink ticket for journaling.  I  popped up the circle "25" with foam tape and placed in between my two die cuts.  

Thank you for stopping by the blog today! You can check out the collection in its entirety by clicking HERE.  Have a great day!



Hello friends! It's Jennifer here to share a project I created with the lovely Holly Jolly collection!  Most of the time you see layouts from me but today I    created a fun home decor project!  Using an 8x8 shadow box I  purchased at a local craft store, I  showcased a favorite holiday photo of my kids using the beautiful prints and ephemera of Holly Jolly!

I  am a big lover of plaid prints so I  knew I  wanted to incorporate it into my project!  I  cut a 7x7 inch piece of Cozy Christmas followed by a 6.75 x 6.75 inch of the floral print of Home for the Holidays.  I  adhered the two together and stitched around the edges with my sewing machine (I  sew on everything!).  From the 6x12 Chipboard, I  adhered the red script "believe" for my title just under my photo allowing some to overlap.  

Just below my title, I  added a small strip of one of the three Washi Tapes at the junction of my two background papers.  I  then added a small sentiment sticker from the Combo Sticker sheet.  

I  love that Simple Stories always offers so many choices on embellishments!  You can see the beautiful floral cluster from the Bits and Pieces that I     adhered the bottom right corner of my photo.  Using pop dots, I  added the wood grain "December 25" journal circle from the Journal Bits and Pieces

The Bow Clips are always a nice addition to your projects!  Here, I  slid one just under the top of my photo!  You receive four different prints in each pack! 

The Journal Bits and Pieces not only has shapes for jotting down information about your pictures, but also these cute sentiment strips! I  added one at the top border of my photo as well as a few coordinating Enamel Dots

Before assembling my shadow box, I  added these colored jingle bells I  had in my stash inside for a fun shaker effect!  

Using my hot glue gun, I  adhered plaid Christmas ribbon around my shadow box and added a bow on top!

Thank you for stopping by the blog today!  I  hope this inspires you to do some DIY home decor projects with your favorite Simple Stories collection! Have a great day!


Hello! It's Jennifer on the blog today to share with you a page I  created with the new Fall Farmhouse collection!  I  cannot tell you how lovely this line is in person with the soft fall colors and rustic prints!  There are so many gorgeous elements included in Fall Farmhouse to make your next layout or project perfect!  

I began with the wood grain print of the B side of So Very Grateful as my background. With my Silhouette, I  cut a 6.5 diameter circle from the 

Fall Memories print to go behind my photo.  Then using the B side of Simply Thankful, I  cut a circle wreath using the Simple Stories "Wreath" cut file from the Silhouette store (#214849).    The Fall Farmhouse Bits and Pieces pack includes many shapes and sentiments such as this script "autumn" I  used for my title.  I  adhered the die cut using pop dots to add some dimension. 

The Journal Bits and Pieces has many great journaling spots, small sentiments, and cute signs to accent your project! I  chose this fun gold colored framed journaling spot which I  added two die cut pumpkins from the Bits and Pieces. You can also spy one of the three beautiful coordinating Washi Tapes at the top! 

From the 6x12 Chipboard, I  adhered the buffalo plaid banner across the bottom of my photo!  I  know I've said this many times before, but I  love banners and am always excited to see them on the Chipboard or Sticker sheets! You will also notice a few die cut leaves sprinkled around my wreath as well! These can be found in the Bits and Pieces pack! 

One of the recent new embellishments from Simple Stories are the Bow Clips! You receive four lovely clips in each pack! They can be used in planners, mini albums, or slid under a photo as I  did here! 

From the Fall Farmhouse Simple Basics Kit, I  cut leaves and branches on my Silhouette to add to my wreath. I  love that you can choose from a solid color or dotted as shown here. 

Fall Farmhouse has a set of coordinating Enamel Dots which I    sprinkled around two different areas of my page! These embellishments make great accents!
