It’s a Christmas Wish |Tamara Buckler

Hello scrappy friends!!

Can you believe it’s nearly Christmas!? I’m up on the blog today sharing my last layout for 2019 and of course it’s another Christmas layout!

I have used the Make a Wish Cut File from our Christmas Collection, which I edited a little in the Silhouette software to remove the star as I new I wanted to nestle it into my title.

I have cut the File from patterned paper today, and I have stuck some pieces of cardboard box which I have cut very thinly, behind the Cut File to pop it up off the page.

I love how raising the Cut File off the page helps to nestle it above the photos, and also allows the rest of the title to be nestled into it.

It’s a little unusual for me to have the title at the top of my page, but as the white space on my photos was towards the top, this worked best. I then kept most of elements central to the page so as to draw the eye down.

Thanks for stopping by today to check out my layout. Make sure you pop over to the shop to grab some of our Christmas Cut Files, because if you’re anything like me, there will be lots of photos to scrapbook in the New Year!

I hope you and yours have a fantastic and safe Christmas and New Year. I for one am looking forward to the break, relaxing, have a few wines and soaking up the sun (lookout for lots of summer layouts in the new year 😂).

Big Loves,

Crazy Tree Trimmers | Meggy Blethen

Hello Scrapbookers!! This is Meggy and I am back with a fun Christmas tree trimming layout. I had so much fun using a few of the Christmas shop releases.

I absolutely love the tree cut file and since we were decorating the tree they worked perfect to frame my photo.

Make sure to grab this cut file for all of your Christmas Tree trimming layouts!

I also used the Christmas Banners cut file to give the top of the layout a little more ballance.

And the star Christmas Tag was perfect as an extra embellishment.

I added a few pieces of ephemera in the top corner with the Christmas Banner file.

I love how the white alpha goes really well with the background and the cut files.

I love this cluster with the cut files and the cut little embellishments.

I backed each of the trees with a pretty patterned paper and added the last part of the title under this cluster of trees.

I just love how the cut files all work together even thought I used 3 different ones! I challenge you to use more than one cut file on a layout! It is a lot of fun.

I had so much fun creating this layout! Make sure to grab these cut files in the shop for yourself this holiday season! I hope you have a wonderful season!

You can watch my process video below. Thanks so much for stopping by!!

December Magic | Michelle Stokes

Hi crafty friends its Michelle here to share my final layout for the year. I went with a festive feel for this layout and scrapped a recent photo of our resident Elf on the Shelf. The one that gets up to all kinds of mischief this time of year.

This sweet photo documents our Elf’s arrival on Leila’s birthday. Every year she shows up with a basket full of Christmas goodies for Leila to enjoy as an early present from Santa.

The December cut file I chose to use was recently part of our 12 days of Christmas cut files and was perfect for creating one massive title on the layout.

I cut the design slightly larger than the photo and paper stack, and backed it using a pretty festive pattern paper from the Pebbles Merry Little Christmas collection.

I added the cut file pice to the right of the photo using some foam tape to lift it off the background

I tucked a couple of tags into the layers of the photo to create a cluster of embellishments along with the floral stickers

Along the bottom of the cut file I added the word MAGIC using some puffy stickers to finish off the title.

Well thats all from me today. Short and sweet to end the year just nicely.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and for all your continued support this year. I’ve really enjoyed being part of this team and hope to continue to provide monthly inspiration in the near future.

Until next time, happy scrapping!

12 Days of Christmas Giveaway – Tree Duo Day 7

Hi creatives!

Marie with you on the blog today. Welcome to day 7 of the 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAY which is another chance to grab a beautiful CUT to YOU cutfile for FREE!

And here’s today’s cutfile which you will find here:

And here’s my layout:

I started by cutting the cutfile twice as I wanted to overlap the trees to make it look more like a forest to fit with the theme of the layout. I wanted to document the trip we took to choose and cut down a Christmas tree for our new house!

I backed the trees using papers from the Crate Paper Snowflake collection which is also where the navy background paper is from.

I added the title ‘Family Time’ using a perspective from Bramble Fox and puffy letters from the Home for the Holidays collection from Pinkfresh.

I added some cute little cardstock stickers around the page, again from the Pinkfresh collection, and ripped a small section from the top and bottom of the page to add a few scraps of paper peeking out.

The final touch was to add some white splatters using watered down acrylic paint. You will find a process video here if you’d like to see how it all came together:

I have used the new Christmas collection by Pebbles Inc Merry Little Christmas.

Untitled-8I have used white card stock as my base cutting it at 10×10 inches as I wanted a solid border to show off the gold dots.

I cut three of this cut file but only used five carefully cutting off the extra one. I then paper pieced them (using the Release Compound function on my Silhouette Cameo). I added a row of machine stitching to add definition to the hanging string. I then added word sentiment banners to the top of three of them (rule of thirds) with a brad.9EADEBC1-F3EC-458F-A635-93E24C5B8DEC

I then cut my title in white and added with touches of wet glue, in the centre of slightly over the baubles. I cut the letters in a patterned paper and used foam tape to attach creating a 3D effect and ensuring my title really stood out!2BB81A57-9ED8-43A4-B92B-D07F5348138A

I added my photo directly under my title and again attached with foam tape.
