Holly Jolly | Simple Stories | Holly Days

Wednesday 29 December 2021


Hey everyone! Here is a new layout for Simple Stories using the beautiful Holly Days collection. I love Holly Days because it has pink in it and I just adore pink for Christmas!
I have used a 6x8 photo today which I find difficult to scrap with so I’m a bit out of my comfort zone, but I got the photo at our visit to Santa so even though I have scanned it and could print it smaller, I feel bad throwing the original away or leaving it in a cupboard for years, so I have gone ahead and scrapped it!

I went for a central design and have anchored the elements towards the bottom edge of the layout. I started off with a white background mounted onto the beautiful pink candy stripe paper. I mounted my photo and added it centrally to the background. I added my title ‘Jolly Holly’ to the bottom of the photo, this was from the Foam Stickers which are full of gorgeous titles.

I made my photo into a pocket to hold our Santa ticket and two journaling tags from the Tags paper. I then fussy cut loads of presents which I layered and stacked around the two lower corners of the photo. I added to these clusters with ephemera from the Bits & Pieces pack, Chipboard Stickers and Foam Stickers.

I created a cluster at the top with Chipboard Stickers and several label stickers from the Cardstock Stickers. I finished off with some splatters of white paint.

Thank you so much for joining me today and happy scrapping

Niki xx
