Waiting 4 Santa Paws (Simple Stories Cozy Christmas)


Hi everyone! Today I'm giving you a look at a layout I made with Simple Stories new Cozy Christmas collection, courtesy of Alexa's cat, Butterscotch. He loves to take up residence under our tree.

The designs in this collection run the gamut from whimsical to traditional to vintage (and I can't forget to mention the beautiful gold elements).

Although it may look like I pieced together a number of different papers to create the background of this page, it's actually one piece of paper. I used a similar paper from Simple Stories Good Day Sunshine collection to create a Disney page I shared with you a few weeks ago.




Because the background design is already done, you can use your crafting time to layer up coordinating embellishments to create clusters around the page. Maybe you'll extend an element already on the paper (like I did in the bottom row, adding on to the left of the word, "believe") or maybe you'll embellish the pre-printed garland with stickers and enamel dots. The possibilities really are endless.

If you'd like more information about this page or if you'd like to see some detail shots, please visit the Simple Stories blog.

See you tomorrow with another Cozy Christmas page, this time featuring a holiday craft.
