Merry and Bright! by Dorymar Perez

Hello Friends, it is Dorymar today with a beautiful Christmas inspiration with the new Simple Vintage North Pole Collection.  Although this Christmas will be a little different for everyone, Christmas is a beautiful time, and it is always important to document whatever your memories are with your family. Today I bring you a beautiful project with a lot of perfect space for that.



For this project, I selected the 6x8 green Snap Album because it matches perfectly with the collection and all the green palette that the collection has.  To decorate the cover, I used the holly pattern from the 6x8 Paper Pad, die cuts, foam stickers, brads, and 6x4 cards.



Here you can see a close-up shot. To make the cover frame, I selected one of the beautiful 6x4 cards that you can find in the Snap Cards pack and cut the entire center to fit one of the messages I liked the most out of the many included in the pack. After adhered the frame with foam tape on the card with the message, I glued it on a chipboard to have more layers. Around I decorated with one of the beautiful Santa’s that the ephemera package includes. Then, I highlighted the design with brads and the magnificent foam stickers that the collection includes. I loved how my cover turned out!



For this project, I wanted to focus on creating beautiful layouts for my 6x8 pocket pages and highlighting the page dividers included in the Snap Album. To make the bases of my pocket pages, I used the papers included in the 6x8 Paper Pad.  These are very practical for this type of project because they are tailored to the pocket and they are double-sided. On this page, I used two 6x8 pages, in one of them I fussy cut the beautiful vintage design that you see on the left side and adhered it on the side of my page and I just added a few ornaments die cuts, and my page was ready.



I adored every design that came with the cards in the Snap Cards pack, they are super useful. On this page I used the 6x4 card with the curious Christmas stockings to make a pocket in one of the divider pages of the snap, then I filled it with 3x4 cards and a beautiful tag that I cut from another of the Snap pages.



Another thing that I love to do in my designs is to highlight some of the 3x4 cards, in this case, I used the word “joy” from the foam stickers and accompanied it with the cute Santa.



The Snap page dividers come with 6 types of different patterns perfect to create a page quickly just by adding some detail. In this case, I just added a strip of patterned paper, my photo mats, and some embellishments from the collection.



Below you will be able to see in detail, how each one of the elements that the collection includes makes a triumphal entry into the layouts, pockets, flaps, and pocket pages. I love how the foam titles are perfect for my layouts, how the eyelets highlight my die cuts, and how beautiful the Santa’s that the ephemera packs includes are.





I hope you can enjoy my project, and I hope it makes you want to go get the AMAZING Simple Vintage North Pole collection to create beautiful projects this Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by!
