Santa Baby - Simple Stories DIY Christmas

I am up on the Simple Stories blog today sharing a few layouts created from items not created for scrapbooking.  I love to use items in my scrapbooking that aren't traditional, such as the banner kit from Simple Stories newest DIY Christmas line.  

Can you spot the odd items I used on this layout?

I made the background of my page from the Evergreen Stripe paper cutting it in half (minus a little) and then making sure the stripes formed perpendicular lines.  It did take a few tries for me to get it right, lol.

I spy a label wrap here and some tags from the tags & twine set!

How about an envelope wrap on this detail peek and a banner piece from the bunting banner set?

I stole some twine from the tags & twine kit and untwisted the piece to just use the red here.

Stop on by the Simple Stories blog to see what other pieces I repurposed!


  1. I love the lines in this layout and how the focal point - the pic - sits right there where the lines come together - You did a really good job on those lines!!! I love the way you mixed and matched pieces and I think this layout is extremely well done!!! I also commented on your other two layouts over at the Simple Stories blog!!!

  2. es adorable!!!! me encanta, besos desde España.

  3. Love what you did with the striped paper!
