Hello Everyone, it’s Piroska here today with a Christmas inspiration for you. Can’t believe it’s already December! We have some special celebrations for you, spoiling you with some sale and beautiful inspirations. It’s worth to read the blog each day 😉
For my Christmas layout I used the Quilt Grid One Background Cut File. Backing this cut file was like sewing a quilt blanket, took some time, but it looks awesome! 😀
First I cut the Quilt Grid One Background cut file from white cardstock. Then I started to back the little triangles with some patterned papers. I wanted to mix and match all the beautiful colours and patternes to create a background with a cosy, Christmassy athmosphere, so I used the Winter Cottage collection of Simple Stories from last year.
In order to get a balanced look, I followed the rules of patchworking: I made small sections, and repeated them, sometimes I changed the order, but the lighter colours were always in the middle.
When I was ready with the background, I glued my photo behind a frame, and started to arrange my layout. (If I started this layout again, I would choose a bigger portrait, because the busy background makes it hard to recognize the small faces in the photo.)
This photo was taken 3 years ago, when we celebrated one of my friends bridal shower in the Vintage Garden restaurant in Budapest, which had a beautiful photo shooting section – we just couldn’t help to make some photos there 🙂
Then I started to embellish the layout. I found a sticker which was perfect as a title – I glued it on a smooth white cardstock to make it sturdy. I cut some pine tree branches ad poinsettia flowers with my Sizzix to decorate the layout.
