Snow Day & Snow Fun | Simple Stories

Sharing a layout I created for Simple Stories using the SUB ZERO Collection.  It's all about skiing and honestly I've never tried! I've had issues with my knees ever since I was 10 years old and have a serious phobia when It comes to skiiing, skating and well lots more. 
I had to dig in my photo albums to find a photo of my husband skiing in Banff and Lake Louise in 1998!  Yes When we first met I took him skiing in the Rockies with a few of our friends.  It really was beautiful and so breathtaking. I enjoyed the ski lodge while everyone was on the hills. 


Here is another pic of hubby and I posing in front of the lodge at Sunshine Village.
What great memories. 

I hope you enjoyed my layouts today - and you can see more of my work on instagram @KristineDavidson and of course @SimpleStories_ for more great projects from our design team.

December Joy | Simple Stories

I am sharing a layout using the cutest winter collection called “Oh What Fun” .  A winter collection with red, pink and blue … yes please!

I used a cut file for my background in this page. I thought it would showcase all the different papers in this collection. 
As you now the winter months make it really hard to photograph a nice white background .. sorry about the lighting!

I wanted a bit of black included in this layout. I added black doodles around the entire cut file, some in the penguin on the top left hand corner, in the journal tag and in the JOY cut out letters. I feel that this brings the layout together. Eve n if my background is white, the picture is a bit white in the background the colors in this layout just pop!

Have a great day!

Off the Wall Paper Crafts |

A few weeks ago, myself and some of my other scrapbook friends were asked to create something using WALLPAPER for an article that was going to be featured on the website.

I was a bit excited and honored to have been asked to participate and I never thought creating something with wallpaper would be so much fun.
I was given the option to select 2 patterns and my first choice was this floral and botanical pattern called In the Spring Air . I loved the patterns, the multiple colors and the circles. with the ability to cut out a few of the elements in this pattern to create my own embellishments or designs.

Did you know you can purchase SELF ADHESIVE wallpaper?! Yes!!! You can cut out shapes and patterns that you'd like for your layout or card and adhere it to your cardstock, piece of wood, chalkboard and any other medium. AMAZING!

I created 4 cards with the same wallpaper. The first 2 I used some distress ink for my background to add some color on the white cardstock. I created a shaker card with a die set for Birthday Wishes and the other Happy Birthday I used a circle punch and leaf die set to create the flower and leaves. It really was so easy and having this Self Adhesive wallpaper made it even easier to create great cards quickly!

The last 2 cards I cut up one of the patterns on the wallpaper to size 4.00" x 5.25" This allowed me to place this on a smaller piece of cardstock so I could use some dimensional adhesive and create a layered look. The stamp I used is from Close to My Heart and I used a square die set to finish off the edges.

As you can see these are so simple to create and really so much fun! 
Get yourself some wallpaper and create your own projects!
