Merry Little Christmas!
Hello! It's Jennifer here today to share a layout I created with the beautiful Merry and Bright collection! I'm a big fan of the whimsical prints with the traditional red, green, and white Christmas colors! And I love that there is a black and white buffalo plaid print!
I scrapped a photo of our sweet pug, Max, from last Christmas. We lost him this past fall so it goes to show that taking photos is so important! I started with kraft cardstock followed by adhering a 11x11 inch piece of the B side of the 4x6 Horizontal Elements. I place strips of the beautiful plaid of Celebrate the Season as well as Holiday Memories across the bottom.
I affixed my photo to a white piece of cardstock fashioning it to look like a Polaroid frame. For my title, I used the cute "have yourself a merry little christmas" sentiment from the 6x12 Chipboard. You can also spy some of the coordinating Washi Tape underneath that comes with the collection!
Just under the corner of my photo, I adhered one of the journaling spots from the Bits and Pieces pack. I then affixed this cute red truck chipboard circle. to accent.
Across the middle of my layout, I wanted to create a "clothesline" of sorts to tie in some of the die cut embellishments as well as a couple of the Tags and Frames. Using pop dots, I affixed my embellishments to the page while running bakers twine along the tops. From my stash, I added mini clothespins to give extra dimension.
Here is one of the tags from the Tags and Frames pack along with a red flower I attached to the top with my clothespin. I also layered the cute "peace love joy" tree which is also found in the Tags and Frames. At the bottom of my Santa tag, you can also see some stamping with the Classic Christmas Roller Stamp!
At the top of my page, I utilized a cut file to create a border with different patterns (Snowflake Border #69597). Some of the pieces, I layered two different papers, while others are a single pattern. I affixed smaller die cuts from the Combo Sticker Sheet as well as 6x12 Chipboard.
