Design Team Reveal!

I know it has been AGES since I got to do some DT work. Well finally here are some creations! I received Simple Stories 25 Days of Christmas papers and a sticker sheet, plus some wooden snowflakes, ribbon, some acetate snowflakes, two decorative pins, a burlap stocking and a metal flower/bottle cap.

I was pretty amazed how much I could create with just 6 pieces of paper. Simple Stories goes pretty far with their strip pages and divided "post card" pages.

I chose to scrap this special photo of us with our little Christmas tree in Florida last year.

I knew kraft would make a great background with this line. But I really wanted to kick it up to contrast with the warm muted tones in the paper. So I went at my background paper with several mists and some paint too.

I made a few accordion flowers and added a little banner I cut from one of the sheets.

Here you can see all the dimension I added with some cool burlap trim from MME, as well as a doilie (which I misted) and some flowers from my stash!

Stay tuned and I will keep revealing the fun things I made with this DT package.
