Hi Creative friends, Gwen with you back on the blog for the last day of our 25 Days of Christmas blog feature. I have one last Scrapbook layout idea for you, its a special layout about the night before Christmas.
I started the layout by backing the ‘December Title’ cut file in a mix of pattern papers from the Cocoa Vanilla Studio ‘Joyful’ collection. I’ve used the paper stack for this as the prints in the designs are a smaller format to those in the 12×12 sheets. I love how you can see more pattern in the open space of the cut file when working with these sized papers.
I’ve then gone ahead and created my background for the layout and mounted my photo. I’ve then added my signature stitching, I am crushing on this contrasting thread for this collection.
For the design of the page, I’ve gone with the photo on the left and then the title block cut file on the right. I’ll also be adding most of my embellishments on the right hand side of the page. I was also super keen to use one of the puffy sticker words to make my title ‘December Moments’. I’ve layered the puffy title over the top of the cut file, you can see above the beautiful shine on these stickers.
This photo was taken on Christmas Eve so I could not help but use this sweet sticker from the collection… just one sleep until Christmas! The number one is a Thicker from my stash, and was the perfect shade of Gold.
I’ve used a mix of chipboard and stickers, wood buttons and die cuts from the collection to embellish the page. Adding these details on top of the cut file. I am careful that I don’t add too many things, ensuring that the letters are still able to be read easily.
I finished up the page with some gold star elements and die cut stars from the Ephemera pack which you can see here.
I have also made a YouTube video of my process for this one which you can watch here:
