Baking Memories | Simple Stories | Baking Spirits Bright

Monday 12 December 2022


Hey everyone! Have you seen the Baking Spirits Bright collection by Simple Stories? I absolutely adore it! It is obviously Christmas themed and is about Christmas baking! Even if you aren’t a baker yourself though, it is packed full of fun icons, embellishments and prints that work for generic Christmas photos too.

My favourite icons in this collection are the gingerbread men! There’s a whole pack of Gingerbread Bits & Pieces which are just so fun! We ‘make’ a gingerbread house every year (well actually I buy a pre-made kit and we just stick it together and decorate it!) so this collection is perfect to document those photos!

I really wanted to use the paper with the gingerbread people all over it but as a full sheet it may have been too busy for a background, so I cut off the top half of the paper, carefully fussy cutting around all the people. The result was a gingerbread people – shaped border! I added this to a piece of red paper from the Baking Spirits Bright collection which gave me a busy top half of the layout and a more plain lower half of the layout.

I mounted my photo into one of the Chipboard Frames and positioned this on the right side of my layout. I added a title from the Foam Stickers underneath and added embellishments from the Foam Stickers, Bits & Pieces and Gingerbread Bits & Pieces around the frame.

I also made a little embellishment cluster of little items from the Bits & Pieces underneath the title, and I added some raised stars to the gingerbread background too. I finished off with a couple of lines of journaling and some splatters of white paint.

Thanks so much for joining me today, I hope you like the layout!
Happy scrapping
