Hello Simple Stories friends, Becki here, to share a layout with you that I created using the Simple Vintage Rustic Christmas collection. I’ve been wanting to use the awesome design 7 template to create a layout for quite a while. I decided that this is the perfect collection to use this template with because there are so many stunning patterned papers to showcase. They’re all gorgeous!
I started with “Under the Tree” patterned paper. The black paper with white snowflakes made the perfect background! Then I layered it with a piece of the Evergreen/Slate paper (solid green). I cut it to the same size as the template. To make the patterned papers pop against the background, I added some stitching around the edge. I think the best part of this project is the 2x2 squares of patterned paper. I cut those squares out of the 6x8 paper pad. The smaller scale patterns are perfect for cutting into smaller bits. On each square there is a bit of stamping or embellishment.
Friends, I’m just going to say it, I LOVE page pieces! I use them on almost all of my Simple Stories projects. The titles are my absolute favorite. They’re so big and so easy to use. I think that on my next project, I’m going to challenge myself to use the entire package on one layout. There are such great ideas for doing just that on the back of the package.
I love the Simple Vintage Rustic Christmas collection so much!! And it was so fun to work with template number 7 too. If you’d like to see how this layout came together, I created a process video to show you all the details. You can watch that video HERE.
Thank you for stopping by the Simple Stories blog. I’ll be back here soon to share another project with you. Happy Holidays and happy crafting!!
