Believe | Simple Stories | Simple Vintage Dear Santa

Tuesday 19 December 2023


Hi everyone, here is a new layout for Simple Stories using the Simple Vintage Dear Santa collection. For this layout I focused on one paper that was made of patchwork and I cut it apart. I then layered up the pieces in two large clusters in a split design on my white background.

I cut down my white background and layered this onto that beautiful black paper with typed words on – it made a lovely border for my page.

Once I was happy with the positioning of all my patchwork pieces in clusters, I added zig-zag machine stitching to all the layers. I love the look of this, but then I ran into some difficulties because I was then unable to tuck embellishments under the layers – ha! I worked with it though and managed to simply layer on top of the papers!

I added my photo to the left side of my page – every year I set my phone up aimed at our Christmas tree set to motion sensor – and I always manage to capture a photo of Santa delivering presents in our house! My children are always so excited to see if we ‘caught’ Santa on Christmas Day! This is one of those photos.

I added a large embellishment cluster to the left of my photo: I love the florals, the candy canes and the snowflakes. I also added a large cluster on the right side of the layout, including some of the Chipboard Clusters that are available for this collection.

I also used a few 3D effect stars to embellish the layout, I really love how these look 3D but are just printed that way – it is so clever! I used these in both clusters. I also added some phrase strip stickers from the Cardstock Stickers and also put half-pieces of the border sticker at either side of the layout.

I finished off with some journaling and added some splatters of black paint! I love how this one turned out!
Happy scrapping
