 Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new layout to share using the Winter Cottage collection.  We live on the east coast of Canada so I always have plenty of winter photos to scrap.  I love that this collection is both Christmas and winter themed!  

I snapped this photo of my daughter at the Christmas parade a few years back.  It was a very cold night so the Brrr title was perfect!

I added some paper layers behind my photo and a bunch of bits and pieces of embellishments to this simple layout.

I love the decorative brads, did you know that they are self adhesive?  No need to punch any holes!

Thanks for stopping by!

 Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new project to share for Echo Park using the Silent Night collection.  I instantly knew I wanted to make a nativity when I saw this collection.  At first I was going to make cards with a nativity scene but I found this adorable nativity cut file in the Silhouette store.  Perfect for my project!

I glued all my stickers to cardstock before adding them in the nativity, just to make them a bit sturdier.  I'm going to add some straw to this when I can find some.  

I loved this quote so I added it to the back, it also matched perfectly with the blue background.

Festive Cards

 Hey everyone, I'm here today with  some festive Christmas cards for Echo Park using the Dear Santa collection.  This collection is my favorite this year!  It's just so festive with all these Santa's and bright colors!

I'm not much of a cardmaker, I usually stick to payouts, but these cards came together so easily!  I used the same layout for all of them.

Once I had the bases done and stitched, I just needed to add a few embellishments. I started by picking out my favorites die cuts.

Finally I added some stickers and enamel dots.  This one is my favorite.  I love the Christmas ball on the reindeer's antlers!

Be Merry

 Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new layout to share for Simple Stories using the Jingle All The Way collection.   This collection is full of all the traditional holiday colors and images!  So very pretty!

I love to work with pattern paper.  Fussy cutting is my favorite technique.  I very rarely throw out paper scraps, there is always something I can fussy cut on it!  I fussy cut a bunch of flowers and leaves on this layout.  I added them to my edges and tucked some under the papers.

I don't usually journal much on my layouts because I don't like my handwriting, so these word and phrase stickers are perfect!

I finished it off by adding some stitching and decorative brads.  I really like how this simple layout turned out.  Traditional and festive!
