Aside from my December Daily album, I hadn’t documented any photos from Christmas last year. I had even purchased this line from Simple Stories (Cozy Christmas) last year during the Holiday season, but had yet to use it! It was time. I will admit, I struggled with the papers in this collection. It was hard to figure out a way to use them, as most of them have patterns somewhere on the paper – not many neutrals.
I ran across this layout from Nancy Damiano and I was inspired by how she stitched together 2 neutral colored background papers to form the foundation of her page. Once I did that, the rest of the layout fell together very quickly.
I love chipboard embellishments. They add so much to a page!
I recently placed a HUGE order on Snapfish.com for some prints. I decided to give their 4″x4″ prints a try and I am very pleased with the results! I do love me some square pics (Hello, entire Instagram feed). Scrapping with them is fun. In fact, it’s what made this layout come together so easily. I did mount them on white cardstock to give them that white border (Snapfish doesn’t print them with one). I think this page design is one that I will use again and again.
I’m a big fan of getting more than just a picture or two onto a page. I always have a LOT of pictures to tell my story – so this page makes me happy. 4 pics on a page = win in my book!
I’ve got another layout with this collection to share, be back soon with that one! Thanks for looking.
