Christmas Spirit
Hello my crafty friends! Emilie here with a brand new layout using the gorgeous Simple Vintage Tis' the Season collection by Simple Stories. All I can say is wow! This collection is breathtaking. With its rich colours and tones of florals, I was definitely in my element!

For this layout, I wanted to play with loads of layering. My first step was to create the background by stitching the plaid side of "HOME FOR THE HOLIDAY" onto the "VANILLA" sheet from the BASIC KIT. I added a little bit of twine to give it the feel of a present and secured it in place with a DECORATIVE BRAD.

Who says layering says lots of volume so to help this look, I added some branches from the RUB ONS pack. My next step was to mount my photograph behind the frame and trim it to fit. I always trim after mounting as trimming it before end can leave me with the nasty surprise of a poorly placed photograph or not enough edges to add my glue.

I placed my frame on my layout with double sided sticky foam pads and then built-up the layers with florals from the FLORAL BITS AND PIECES pack.

It was time to add my title. I chose one from the FOAM STICKERS pack and placed it at the bottom of my frame. I added double sided sticky foam pads under the "C" as to prevent it from sticking to the background which was not as elevated.

I felt my layout needed a little more detail, so I added a word strip on top of my title and a "25" chipboard from the 6x12 CHIPBOARDS pack.

To help balance my layout, I tore the bottom left of the plaid paper to reveal the vanilla that was behind and decorated it with an ephemera and a sticker from the STICKER BOOK. A few ENAMEL DOTS and stars from the 6x12 CHIPBOARDS pack placed cleverly around my clusters finished off my layout beautifully.

I had so much fun creating this layout and I hope that you felt inspired! Make sure to grab your TIS THE SEASON collection at your local scrapbooking store!

Lots of love,

Emilie xxx
