Hello beautiful friends! I’m so happy to be sharing another project with you today. I dove back into my stash to create this layout to document some photos of my little girl on her first Christmas Day.
I wanted to use the Holly Background Cut File to create a background feature for my page.
I backed the file coordinated patterned papers, then adhered it to a bold gold foil striped vellum. I machine stitched around the edge before adhering it to my white cardstock background.
After matting my photo strip onto patterned paper, I added a really soft layer of gathered tissue paper to help offset the boldness of the background.
I kept things pretty simple for the rest of the layout. My title “Christmas Cutie Pie” used two different font stickers from my stash. And my journalling (if you can call it that!) was just a sticker that read “Christmas Day” and the year.
I finished my layout by creating a couple of small clusters of embellishments nestled around my photo. And popped a little Santa hat die cut onto my daughters head in one of the photos for a SUPER cute little festive detail.
If you’d like to see this layout come together in more detail I’d love for you to watch my process video linked below.
Happy creating and I hope you have a great day!
