December at Simple Scrapper

It’s that time of year again—I just put up my tree, I am in the midst of holiday shopping, and I have Christmas music playing all day long. The magic of the season is here!

I absolutely LOVE Christmas so I was thrilled with this month’s Story Starters at Simple Scrapper–they are all about magic! Since I am a big believer in the magic of this season, I decided to create a page showing some of my favorite holiday decorations.


To make this page, I took several closeup shots and cropped them to 4×4 squares. Using a past Sketch/Template from Simple Scrapper, I placed the photos down the right side of the page and then added my title and embellishments. I love to use gold decorations on my tree and around my house, so I reached for several gold embellishments for this page. My favorite is the gold star washi tape!

(An interesting note about this page: I did not use any holiday themed products! Current scrapbooking supplies are SO versatile!)

For my second December page, I looked back at past Story Starters and found one about the outdoor spaces at my home. Since I live on a farm, I have many photos outside of my house. I used one of this month’s Sketch/Templates to put several of these pictures together into a layout that showcases the beauty that surrounds my home.

I used several die cuts from Basic Grey’s Herbs and Honey collection to embellish this layout.

These two pages came together so quickly with the help of the Story Starters and Sketch/Templates from Simple Scrapper’s Premium Membership. Check out the site today!
