JOY - Simple Stories
Nathalie with you today with a new layout that is all about the most wonderful time of the year, Christmas! The new Country Christmas collection from Simple Stories is perfect to document all those memories of Christmas passed, just wait till you see all the details on the papers and embellishments.
I wanted to have a large focus for this page, so i chose to paper piece a poinsettia bough on the page. For this, I pulled two cut files from Just Nick Studio and used them to build the centerpiece on my page.
I cut the Poinsettia from the 4x6 elements and Joyous Noel papers; for the flower's leaves i chose a paper from the Basic paper pack, and cut the Pineneedle boughs from Good Cheer and Holiday Greetings papers.
I assemble the flowers together, and then used foam adhesive behind the pieces to add a bit of dimension to the page. I chose the Winter Wishes Paper as the background for the page as it contrasted and complemented the colors of the flowers nicely.
The chipboard frames that are included in this collection are amazing as they already have embellishments on them, so all i had to do was add the picture behind it, and nestled it in the flowers. A few small embellishments complete the look.
To finish the page, i trimmed a bit of the borders and glued it to the Scarlet/Dots paper from the Basic pack,then used chipboard and a few stickers to create the title at the bottom right corner of the page. A few drops of gold ink complete the page.
I hope this inspires you to check the new Simple Stories' Country Christmas collection, i am sure you are going to love it !!
