Christmas Scrapbooking with Oversized Tags using Simple Stories The Holiday Life

Monday 20 November 2023

Happy holidays everyone! This layout is my second layout using the gorgeous The Holiday Life collection by Simple Stories.

For this layout I decided to make some giant tags! I chose a few of the patterned papers and cut the into tag shapes: three large ones in varying sizes. I also cut two little tags from the Tags paper.

I stitched around each of my tags using my sewing machine and also tied each one through with ribbons. I then arranged them onto a white background and worked out where my photo was going to go! I then started to build my clusters of embellishments. I used the rub ons to add gorgeous floral details to a few areas of the layouts. The rub-ons were a pleasure to use, really easy to position and transfer.

I added a few house embellishments over on the left side of the layout and lots of other smaller embellishments, from a mixture of the Bits & Pieces, Floral Bits and Cardstock Stickers. I also added a few Decorative Brads.

I added a few phrase stickers from the Cardstock Stickers, which I distressed the edges of and raised up on foam pads. I find this was that they show up really well against a patterned paper.

I finished off with some journaling and splatters of black paint. I love how this one turned out, those oversized tags are so fun!

Happy scrapping and happy holidays!
