November Scrapshotz Kit - SS Winter Farmhouse

Hello scrappers! Today I'm sharing a couple of layouts created with the November Scrapshotz kit featuring Simple Stories' Winter Farmhouse line.

This line is full of fun images, and I had a bunch of un-scrapped photos from a Christmas photo session that my son's family had a few years ago that were perfect for it. The line has lots of earthy neutrals with deep red and mint throughout. I loved the outdoorsy feel of it.

The title for the layout above was created from stickers in the kit. What great phrases for winter pics! The embellishments are chipboard stickers.
This layout was based on the Creative Scrapbooker November sketch. I don't believe I've ever put so many photos on a layout. What a great way to cascade them. I did have to stretch it into a 2-pager! The sketch is shown below.

Here is the title for the double page spread. I used the Thickers included with the kit and an old alpha set from my stash that kind of looked like it was cut out of a magazine. Appropriate for the page, don't you think?

Thanks for looking! I'll be back later this week with a couple more layouts with this fabulous kit!

Home Again by Carta Bella - October Scrapshotz Kit - Part 2

Family and home. There is nothing more important in our scrapbooks. This line is perfect for all those photos that aren't about a special event. Just real life happening. I used a lot of chipboard elements on this layout, playing with the placement of the bits and pieces until I was happy with it. The journaling strips are cut from the Taylored Expressions Simple Strips Die. This die is going to get a lot of use in my scrapbook room!

These cards use ephemera pieces, scraps from my layouts, some chipboard and the enamel dots included in the October Scrapshotz kit. Easy and fun to create!

More cards using the elements of the line. The sentiment strips are from the Taylored Expressions Simple Strips stamps and dies. I just stamped and cut out a bunch! Instant sentiments!
More cards using the sentiment strips and elements from the kit. All my bows are tied using the Bow Easy. If you don't have one, you need to get one. Easy peasy, pretty bows every time! If you need one, ask Sandy to source it for you! She's always ready to fill our wish lists!

Thanks for looking!
