Count down to Christmas : Day 1 with Simple Stories

Everyday this week we hope to countdown to Christmas and inspire you with Christmas projects and ideas from the design team, so pop by each day to see what we have to share.

First up is a really easy and clean page using the beautiful Very Merry collection from Simple Stories, it is the perfect mix of reds, greens and my favourite woodgrain papers, and the card papers they create have lots of bits that you can cut out.  I started with four 5" blocks cut from the Let it Snow paper, and then embellished them with some of the elements from the 6 by 4" cards and also a few of the chipboard pieces.  Another thing that I love about Simple Stories is that if you have an older Christmas similar colour palette collection from them then you can mix in their stickers and elements and it all co-ordinates perfectly.

I punched out some vellum snowflakes, and hid the glue under a silver nuevo drop.

The vellum snowflake then featured in a few more of my embellishment collections, as well as some words from a previous Christmas line by Simple Stories.

I hope that has inspired you, do pop back tomorrow for some more inspiration.
