Deck The Halls

Deck The Halls
Hello friends!
Well, it has happened again…I have completely fallen in love with another Simple Stories creation (as always seems to be the case). The new Simple Vintage Dear Santa Collection has every single thing I love about Christmas all wrapped up in one beautiful collection.
Let’s take a look at the 12 x 12 layout I created to document a few of my favorite vintage ornaments.
When beginning this layout, I knew I wanted to use the 6 x 8 Stencil on the project but was not quite sure how. While looking through my crafty stash, I found some white ribbon that I felt would go well with the collection and decided to try inking the stencil images on it. After a bit of trial and error, I was able to use distress oxide inks with the stencil to create a one-of-a-kind ribbon embellishment.
After completing the ribbon, I chose several patterned papers that matched my photo and machine stitched them in place to create the background. Next, I cut a chipboard frame in half and used it as the base for my picture. With the photo in place, I used portions of the rub-ons to add color and texture to the background.
Next, I used several different elements from the collection to embellish the layout. I cannot stress just how much I love the Simple Vintage Dear Santa Collection! It is almost as if it were made just for me.
To create the title, I used foam stickers and a sentiment from the sticker book as well as added hand-written journaling.
To finish the embellishing, I added bits of washi tape along the top and bottom of the picture. Last, I splattered white paint to provide even more of a vintage feel.
Here is one more look at the finished project.
Thank you for stopping by today, and I hope you’ve been inspired to get some of your favorite memories documented. The Simple Vintage Dear Santa Collection is absolutely stunning and perfect for all of your holiday projects!
