Hello There, it's Anita here with you today with my first posting for November.
I have used some papers from the Very Merry
collection by Simple Stories this time and teamed them up with a photo taken in the lead up to Christmas 2016. (apologies for the poor quality of the photos, the lighting has been dreadful with such dreary and drab weather)
I had just got the Snapchat App on my phone and had great fun playing with the various filters on there that add some really cute and often funny features to your faces ( not to mention some random ones that are just downright bizarre!!!).
We were heading on a family trip out to do some Christmas shopping, but our youngest Daughter was busy elsewhere, so we sent her a Snapchat message of my eldest Daughter and I.
As with all collections from Simple Stories
, there are various double sided sheets. Some are purely patterned each side but there are also some sheets of Journalling elements plus Vertical and Horizontal Elements and of course the various sticker sheets and Snap Cards.
I based the layout on a sheet of Seasons Greetings
I also cut a couple of Vertical Elements
out, one of which I used as a photo mat.
I then cut various flower and leaf clusters out from a sheet of Peace on Earth
and placed them around the page in various places. I cut up a few random
rectangles and stacked them to look like presents and tied them up with some red organza ribbon.
Various papers blooms, glittered Ivy leaves, Sequins and MDF laser cut shapes were added just to finish off the page.
I have several other Snapchat photos that I have had printed and I am looking forward to scrapping with those too!
I will have to have a look and see what other Simple Stories Collections
will work well with them.....there are so many various sets available at the SHOP
covering all different themes that I am sure finding something suitable will not be a problem.
Hope you have had lots of scrappy fun so far this month and I look forward to catching up with you later in November,
