Hi CUT to YOU fans! It’s Kirei here with a set of three mini layouts to go in my December Album. I used three different cut files from the Christmas Shop – Holly Baubles, Whimsy Woodland and Christmas Stocking. Each mini layout measures 6″ x 8″ and I am using the festive Simple Stories ‘Holly Days’ and ‘Make it Merry’ collections.
For my first layout I used the Holly Baubles cut file that you can find here in the shop. As these layouts are going into an album that needs to hold thirty one layouts I need to be careful with how dimensional they are so I backed my cut file using some vellum and patterned papers (without using sticky foam). These were stuck down directly to the patterned paper background. I then added my photos, again mounted directly onto the layout. This was a pretty simple page so all I had left to do was add some journaling stickers and then my date number circle.
For my second mini layout I went for the Whimsy Woodland tree cut file that you can find in the shop here. It was perfect with my photos of our decorated tree at home! For this one I backed it with firstly with vellum and then patterned paper behind that as I didn’t want the patterned paper to overwhelm the page as it was already quite busy with the patterned paper background and two photos.
For my final page I used the Christmas Stocking cut file that you can find in the shop here. I backed it with a mix of patterned papers and stuck it flat to the patterned paper background. I went with a larger photo this time, added some stickers popping out of the top of the stocking, my journaling and of course the date number circle. Only 28 more pages to be done!
