Hi everyone! Donna here today as your host, starting off another week of inspiration! I didn't get a chance to work with Simple Stories' Christmas collection, Handmade Holiday, for CHA. And so, when I received it in the mail a few weeks ago, I was immediately inspired to use it to create a layout (yes, even in the middle of August!). In particular, I was inspired by the snowflakes combined with the kraft grid on the 6x8 photo mat pictured below
Using that design as a starting point, I came up with this layout
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut several different style and shaped snowflakes from the Dictionary paper,
Which was admittedly, a bit difficult to photograph. I suppose you will just have to trust me when I say it is very pretty!
I also layered the larger snowflakes with smaller ones, and used foam adhesive to add dimension to the page. Likewise, I used foam adhesive to attach part of my title to the page. I use one very simple sans serif font combined with a script font to create a more playful title.
I absolutely adore all of the various bits of pieces of this Christmas collection. The papers can be used as is, or you can use the design elements as starting points for your own creations, as I did here. Truly so much to love about Simple Stories!
Thank you for stopping by today! What is your favorite part of Handmade Holiday?
