So, even though the Simon Says Stamp monthly card kits have the word, "card" in the product title, don't let that deter you scrapbookers from using pieces of the kit to create layouts!!!
I was so inspired by the product/color choices in the December Card Kit that I decided to create a layout for you today:
Using mostly components from the card kit along with a background paper and a few extra goodies and stamps from my stash I created this layout showcasing my brother and I when we were little!
I am really loving all the polaroid theme background patterned papers lately and love being able to use these "frames" as mini canvases for adding bits and pieces to my pages.
I added some October Afternoon Holiday Style chipboard banners to one of my frames along with some stamping using the Ali Edwards December Daily stamp set for 2012.
I used the stamp set below from this month's exclusive SSS stamp set inluded with the kit (or available individually) to stamp on the included Jenni Bowlin label. I used pop dots to adhere it over the ribbon (also from the kit) and the pattered paper (from the kit).
I die cut the snowflakes from the included cardstock using an exlusive SSS die. These dies are amazing, just look at that detail! I embellished with a label sticker behind and a chipboard button on top, finishing with some gemstones.
Lots of stamping and using stamps from different collections together to create a unique custom stamped design.
And those holly sprigs....I'm going to have to pick up a few more of these! I used both that came in this month's kit on my page!
A little journaling adhered and adorned with washi tape and a wax seal (included in the kit) and my page is complete!
