For December's layout, I decided to share how I document our holiday cards. I usually create a pretty simple one page layout and it's basically a place for me to save the card and play with supplies too.
For our 2015 holiday card, I pulled out my favorite Christmas supplies - Simple Stories. Most of the papers came from the Claus & Co. Collection. Even though I pulled out all of my papers, stickers and embellishments, I ended up go very simple and instead used die cutting as my main focus for the layout.
The title die cut is from Kerri Bradford Studio and I have had it for years and finally used it. Both holly leaves are the same file from silhouette studio store and one is just resized to be smaller. I cut all the files from black cardstock first to create a drop shadow layer. Then I used pattern papers from various Simple Stories collections and basic packs to die cut the layers with my cameo.
I love the type write font text phrase stickers that are included on most Simple Stories 12x12 sticker sheets. They are a definite go to embellishment for me. After I attached it with foam adhesive to my layout, I noticed I had grabbed one that said the exact same thing as my title...oops lol.
In all the christmas themed embellishments I keep together from Simple Stories, I challenged myself to use these red glitter clear stickers. For some reason I have never used clear stickers. So I decided to make a third text element on the layout by using one of the red glitter stickers with the smaller holly die cut. Bright red enamel dots finished off the layout.
