Merry Christmas | Simple Stories | Simple Vintage Dear Santa

Tuesday 19 December 2023

 Hey everyone! Here is another layout using the gorgeous Simple Vintage Dear Santa collection by Simple Stories.

For this layout I fussy cut lots of ornaments from one of the papers – I love how they are a patchwork design with zig-zag stitching, they are adorable!

Once I had lots cut out, I set about arranging them onto a white background. I trimmed down a sheet of white card and added this to a sheet of red gingham print from the Simple Vintage Basics pack of paper. I love these packs, they coordinate perfectly with the papers in the main collection. I also adore gingham! When happy with the positioning, I stuck them to the white background, all raised on foam pads. I then added ‘string’ which was red thread long-stitched to the top of the white part of the layout. I wanted them to all look like they were dangling from the top!

I added my photo which I mounted a few times on some of the Dear Santa patterned papers. I added a large title ‘merry Christmas’ at the top and added a few embellishments to the right of my photo, along with some colourful phrase strip stickers from the Cardstock Stickers.

I then added little details to all the hanging ornaments. I added small stars stickers, hearts, Decorative Brads and more phrase strip stickers. I also added a few ephemera hearts from the Bits & Pieces in-between the ornaments and their strings.

I finished off with some splatters of black paint and my handwritten journaling!

I adore the finished layout, I just love all those ornaments!

Happy scrapping
