Simple Stories Claus & Co - Christmas Day by Fiona Johnstone

Hello everyone

To get us all in the Christmas spirit I am popping in today to share my Christmas class page created for our last crop day for the year, using the gorgeous Simple Stories Claus & Co collection. I've  created a quick double page using some patterned papers and embellished with the fundamentals cardstock sticker sheet and some sequins. 

Christmas Day
Love the traditional colours in this collection which work so well with the neutral background of the Kraft cardstock. I've layered several of the patterned papers across the page, adding some interest to the layers with some tearing and banners. 

I've stuck with black & white photos of the younger members of our family opening presents on Christmas Day to create cohesion with the colour scheme, this is always a great idea when everyone is wearing a mismatch of coloured clothing!

The fundamental cardstock stickers are the perfect addition to the layout as the sheet is full of Christmassy themed stickers and words.  I finished off my layout with a sprinkling of sequins. 

I finished off the class with some optional Christmas cards using up the leftover papers and cardstock stickers:

Thanks for stopping by

  1. Fantastic layout Fiona for multiple photos, love the Kraft as your base as it makes the Christmas colours really pop. A lovely layout to document Christmas memories.

  2. And the cards are just lovely too x

  3. I love the double page spread.....I find doubles tricky - I love how you've made it look like one seamless layout. Well done.

  4. Great layout for multiple photos, will definitely be doing for some of this years photos. Great use of scraps for the cards too.
