Winter Wishes! by Cristina Sales

Winter Wishes! by Cristina Sales

Hi everyone, welcome back on the Simple Stories blog, Cristina here today to show you my newest project! I started working on my 2020 December Daily and I chose a totally amazing collection, the Simple Stories Winter Cottage collection! It is one of the most beautiful winter collections this year. 






I chose this collection to make the December Daily 2020 because it is certainly the one that I would use the most because of the designs and colors used. I love the color combo even in the darker tones that I don't usually use, but here they are so well balanced and matched that I find it very elegant.  


I love how the gold foil details give a touch of light without weighing down the construction of the pages.  





The first six pages are the first six days of December. The journaling that I will add later is missing because it is a very personal part of the project that I prefer not to share.  


As you well know, unfortunately we are still in the middle of the pandemic and therefore the opportunities to go out and experience things are very few, so I decided to create fun and meaningful occasions while staying at home!





I chose to use one of the Simple Stories 6x8 albums with black and white stripes because they are basic colors that perfectly match the warm colors of this collection. I really like to combine page protectors with pockets of various sizes filled with patterned paper pages and cardstock from the same collection.  






I really enjoyed mixing all the embellishments of this rich collection. Puffy stickers (my absolute favorites), chipboard and cardstock sticker book, foam foil stickers, ephemera die-cuts, enamel dots, in short, I couldn't give up any of these and I certainly can't wait to get back to work with the second week of December!
