Filled With Joy! by Marsha Farris
Hey, Simple Stories friends! Marsha here, and I'm excited to share a flipbook album I created using the new Simple Vintage Rustic Christmas collection! I love making holiday projects and was so happy to use this beautiful collection to create a mini album to hold lots of Christmas memories.

I chose the Whitewashed Wood 6x8 Flipbook for my project because I thought it paired perfectly with this collection. I selected a chipboard frame for the cover of the album and backed it with a plaid patterned paper. Next, I used foam stickers and alphabet stickers from the sticker book to create the title. I used the clear stamp set and black ink to stamp phrases onto sticker labels and layered them along the inside edge of the frame. Then, I trimmed a green paper into a tag shape and created a cluster with stickers and patterned paper. To complete the cover, I added holly leaves die cuts and enamel dots to a few areas.

For the first page of the album, I trimmed a plaid patterned paper and white cardstock to use as the background and layered a cardstock sticker banner over them. I used foam and cardstock stickers to embellish the layout. This page came together so quickly and beautifully using the sticker banner piece!
The next pages use a chipboard frame and various embellishments from the collection to create clusters. I also varied the page sizes to provide extra interest. Stamped stars with the clear stamp set and black ink were the perfect finishing touch. 
For the next page, I created pocket cards using trimmed patterned paper and cardstock. I used foam, cardstock, and layered stickers to embellish the cards.
I incorporated a chipboard frame and cardstock sticker banner on the following pages and added titles with foam stickers. I also used the gorgeous bits and pieces die cuts to embellish the layouts. 
I always enjoy incorporating cut apart journal cards in my albums and included several of them on the final pages. I trimmed two into tag shapes and added twine to the top of each one. The other cards were embellished with various elements from the collection, including cardstock and foam stickers, enamel dots, and decorative brads. 
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I loved creating and sharing this flipbook album using the beautiful Simple Vintage Rustic Christmas collection! I will see you again soon with more inspiration!
