Hey everyone, this is Niki (@nikiclairecreates) and here are two new layouts and process videos using the very beautiful Simple Vintage Winter Woods collection. This collection is so unbelievably pretty with all the soft pastel snowy tones, and I couldn’t wait to dive right in!
I was instantly drawn to the crosshatch paper and decided to use that for my background. I trimmed it down and distressed the edges, then mounted it onto a piece of paper from the 12x12 Basics Pack.
I cut a circle from white card, which I then cut into pieces and distressed. I then added this to my background as a central feature.
I then added my photo which I layered with one of the Chipboard Clusters and some ephemera from the Bits & Pieces pack. I tucked in several snowflakes from the Woodland Bits & Pieces to the slices of my circle and created a couple of embellishment clusters with these, some Foam Stickers and more Bits & Pieces.
My title ‘love never melts’ is from the Foam Stickers, how adorable is that phrase! I added more Foam Stickers, Decorative Brads and Enamel Dots.
I finished off with splatters of silver paint. I’m delighted with how this layout turned out, this collection is super pretty and perfect for frosty photos. Here is the link to the process video if you would like to watch it come together: https://youtu.be/Lks0RLC-tvI
For my second layout, I wanted to showcase some of the beautiful patterns in this collection from the 6x8 Paper Pad so I selected a few and punched some snowflakes from each. I then used the Simple Vintage Winter Woods Stencil and a blue ink pad to create some stencilled snowflakes onto a white background. Amongst the stencilled snowflakes I added the punched snowflakes. Some are layered and offset to give extra dimension.
I added my photo layered with one of the Chipboard Clusters in the middle of the layout together with some ephemera from the Bits & Pieces packs. I added a large title to the right of the photo together with lots more embellishments including Foam Stickers, Decorative Brads, Bits & Pieces and Enamel Dots.
I was going to leave it there but I had quite a few leftover punched snowflakes so I stuck them randomly all over the background together with some little water droplet gems from my stash. I finished off with splatters of white acrylic paint. Here is the link to the process video if you would like to watch along: https://youtu.be/fOti4Gwmj6Y
Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing the gorgeous Simple Vintage Winter Woods collection, it is just so pretty and I have loved working with it.
