Hello lovely friends! It’s Kylie back with you today, to share a new layout I have been working on, featuring the gorgeous ‘Holly Jolly’ collection. I had some fun photos of my son wearing his Christmas shirt (*reluctantly….) and wanted to create something with lots of different layers.

To begin, I used some green cardstock from my craft stash as my base and adhered a sheet of WINTER WONDERLAND over the top. I had removed a 1cm edge from each side, creating a neat border effect.

I then trimmed a 2cm edge off the PEACE & JOY paper before measuring a 1 inch border all the way around and carefully cutting this out with a craft knife and ruler. The square piece I had once the border was removed, had a 1cm edge trimmed off each side.

Once I had completed these steps I adhered the frame/border piece and the inner square to my layout. This gave a lovely layered effect showcasing multiple borders.

I printed two square photos and added them positioned diagonally to each other, to some layered blocks of square papers on my background. I did this with foam tape so that they sat up a little for dimension.

For the two remaining squares, I added some layers of die cuts and stickers to create a small ‘picture within a picture’.

To complete my layout I added the ‘village scene’ sticker strip throughout the centre of my layout, followed by the ‘Believe’ chipboard sticker as my main title.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my layout today and it gives you a little inspiration for your own creating. Until next time,
