Hey & hello CUT to YOU friends!! Melinda here with you today for day 21 of our 25 days of Christmas and I hope that you have been loving all the inspiration around here as much as I have!! Also, with only 4 short sleeps until the big day I hope you are ENJOYING this time of year, whatever you are doing!!
Like I said, I’m here sharing for day 21 and here is my layout.
For this one I chose the super fun “Christmas Banner” cut file. I LOVE this cut file. Seriously LOVE, however, I had a really hard time trying to work out just how I wanted to incorporate it into a layout before I created this page. But I super love my page and am glad that I waited for the “right” page to create!!
One thing that REALLY helped me with this page was selecting a collection to work with before I did anything further than cut my cut file. I’ve chosen the Cocoa Vanilla Studio “Merry & Bright” collection from 2020, pulled out the A5 paper stack, popped on a fave Christmas movie and got to tracing, cutting and sticking. Before I knew it, I had a completely backed cut file to work with and a collection to embellish with!!
Photo choice was next and I found this photo of my boys from Christmas 2018 with Santa and I really LOVED how the bold colours in the photos contrasted with the colours in the CVS collection.
With all of my elements now chosen the page kinda just fell together from here. I did add some gold machine stitching along the “string” parts of the banner and around the photo which of course meant I had to finish the page with some gold splatter!!
Working with a biggish cut file like this can make the process super quick after you’ve backed the cut file. And it’s so easy to pick up the cut file and sneak in 5 minutes here or there when you’re busy to back the cut file too!!
I hope you have enjoyed my share today and if you’d like to see my page come together just hit that play button below or head on over to my YT channel!!
