SS DT: Winter Shine

Hello crafters! I am on the Simple Stories blog today, sharing 2 layouts using the Winter Wonderland collection. This collection really beams, even if it is used with non Winter photos! 
It has always been a tradition with my girlfriends to meet up for a Christmas gift exchange and a meal together. This year, we had a blast and I needed to document this yearly affair with the Winter Wonderland collection.
Using my Silhouette Cameo this time, I cut some svg files for the Shine title and Circle Wreath. Then I ran the layout through the sewing machine, giving the circular elements a border with the running stitch.
How about a heart from the sticker sheet to accompany the snowman? Layering up with elements in the Bits and Pieces pack is easy!
I like to add locations of the places visited in the photo. In this case, I used the alphas in the sticker sheet as a sub title. Enamel drops are a must to add a tinge of color and texture!
The phrases in the Bits and Pieces pack are very versatile for any layouts. I used the Washi Tapes in the series behind the phrase in order to give it a highlight. 
The next layout was inspired by stars! I cut many stars into the pattern paper, and then backed it up with a contrasting color to highlight the star cuts. 
More Simple Stories Silhouette cuts! Christmas bubbles go hand in hand with this layout, and they are easy to use. Here you can also see some hand-stitching which I had done around each of the stars. 
More washi tape, stitched star and cool phrases! I even made use of the negative of the star cut from the pattern paper and used it as part of the decoration. I was in the hair salon for 4 hours waiting for a haircut. The weather had been rainy, and it was cool out there. The waiting kept me in anticipation on my new look!
Adding stamped words to layouts are a favourite! The Classic Christmas roller stamp has so many phrases to choose from, and it really does not need to be christmas!
This collection's colors and elements are perfect to use along any photo, snow or not! Hope you like these layouts today!
