Simple Stories Layouts - Simple Vintage Winter Woods

Hello, my friends! Today I am sharing layouts created with the January Scrapshotz kit. This kit features the Simple Stories "Simple Vintage Winter Woods" collection, and it is gorgeous. We have had a cold winter, but I have found plenty of opportunities to take photos of the season. These photos were taken in and around our farm. I love to use quotes and this layout, although not my favorite time of year, fit this quote perfectly.

I used the foam stickers for the title and a chipboard embellishment at the top. A trio of brad embellishments finished it off. I love the new brad embellishments! They don't actually have the prongs on the back! They are mounted on a foam dot and you can put them anywhere on your layout with ease!

For my second layout, I got out my exacto knife and cut around the embellishment on the patterned paper, so that I could tuck my photo behind it. I cut one of the 3x4 journaling cards into 2 pieces to use as a mat for my photo, and layered it with another. Once again the foam stickers fit my layout title! I used some chipboard and some ephemera pieces for additional layers, some with foam and some without. I used washi tape and brads as well as another winter quote, this one from Charles Dickens "Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of it's own." 💖

My third layout features a photo taken by a local lady who's photography I admire. Linda Long has an artist's eye and I love the "around town" photos that she takes. I mounted this one on layers of ephemera, chipboard and brads, using tickets and word plates inter-mingled in. I'm not really comfortable with all the ephemera layers, but I am pleased with the final result.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope my next layouts feature something besides frost and snow!!! Lol!
