Hello Simple Stories fans!

Nathalie here today to share fun ideas featuring the beautiful SIMPLE VINTAGE RUSTIC CHRISTMAS collection! During the busy holiday season, we are all faced with wanting to document those special memories in a short amount of time. Well, here is where the new Simple Page Kits and Chipboard Frames can help you! Today, I am going to show you how to reimagine the kit into two simple and elegant layouts



Jana Eubank has already designed the bases of the Simple Pages Page Kit - Magical Season so that it makes your documenting a breeze. So, all I am doing is using the existing bases and adding a few simple touches to make them my own.



I started with one of the bases, trimmed it a bit and framed it with the Coal/Marshmallow basic paper. I chose the double chipboard frame to house my photos.



Once I set it on the page, I started adding embellishments from the collection to create a soft cluster that hugs the right side of the frame.



The Banner stickers are perfect to help you embellish your pages. I simply trimmed the end edges of the banner and tucked it under the picture. The simple curvature of the banner helps with the design of the page.



The last touch was adding a title, and with so many beautiful sentiments in the Foam Stickers it was easy to pair it with a few of the Sticker tablet alpha stickers. I splatter a bit of gold ink and drew the lines for journaling (these are a gift, so the recipient can add the journaling later on!)



For my second page, I chose another of the premade bases from the Simple Pages Page Kit. I am a chipboard frame lover - as they are always a great way to make your photos shine on your layouts, so I am using one of them to house the photo.



This time, I am using pieces from the Simple Pages Page Kit to create the layers behind the photo. I wanted to take advantage of the design of the papers to add my embellishments on the left side of the photo and layout.


I am using embellishments from the Simple Pages Kit and adding pieces from the chipboard clusters, ephemera and chipboard stickers. I am using the banner pieces from the kit to anchor my title and picture to the page. I just love all the sentiments available; it makes is so easy to build a title.



These two layouts came together in a short amount of time using the base pages from the Simple Pages Kit. Be sure to check the beautiful SIMPLE VINTAGE RUSTIC CHRISTMAS collection and its complementary kits and embellishments. You are going to love them all!
