Be Merry

Scrapbook Layout  - BE MERRY -

Hello there!

I hope you all are enjoying the holiday season.  Since receiving my latest Pretty Little Studio order with Ashley Horton's Tinsel Town collection, I have not been able to put it down, so I went ahead and created a layout about my kids playing around while trimming the tree.

To create the background,   I used the Cut Shoppe's "Oh Little Star"  free cut file (from the 2015 Holiday season) to create the cut-out.  Using papers from the Tinsel Town collection, I backed the papers, and then added a large vellum circle to the entire background.

The title of this page was created with the Christmas Magic cut file from the Cut Shoppe.  I used part of the image to create the title on the Candy Cane paper of the collection, and attached it to an offset of the cut words.   A little bit of hand stitching just adds texture and defines the title.

The picture of my daughter trying to trim our baby was just too funny not to document, so I used the title and embelishments from the Tinsel Town, and Holly Jolly collection both from Pretty Little Studio to frame the picture.

The mat for this layout comes from a watercolor collection by Craft Smith,  I simply added splatters of white acrylic paint, and black ink.  To balance the page, I created a small cluster of ephemera on the bottom right corner of the page.    To finish the page, a few lines of journal were added, along with the date when the picture was taken.  Here is the final layout:

I love the final look of this page!   The pretty papers from the Tinsel Town collection are just so beautiful, and  perfect to document all the fun holiday memories.

Thanks for visiting!
