Tracey - Christmas Joy

Our Design Team are playing with a Exclusive Christmas Kit and sharing their layouts so you can see examples of what to expect in our kits when then go on sale April 1st.

First we have Tracey sharing her Christmas Joy layout created with this fun kit.

I used to struggle scrapping all things to do with Christmas, red and green were just a huge challenge that I didn't want to undertake.  Now, I love Christmas scrapping because of Jaiden, this year was his first Christmas and I can't wait to share this layout with you all.

To start it off, I trimmed about 2cm from the sides of the white cardstock sothat  I could back it onto a patterned paper, I then mixed up the  red texture pase and applied that to the cardstock through a stencil.
Now, if your's patient enough you'll let the texture paste dry in it's own time, if you're lie me, you'll blast it dry with a heat gun.  After I had dried the texture paste I played around with some scraps to find how  I like my layering for under the photo, I stuck it down and then mounted the photo to a piece of vellum.
I used the doily as a mount for my embellishment cluster that includes these cute items from the Scrapping Fun Kits Design Team bonus Christmas kit.
Handmade Paper Poinsettias
Bakers Twine
Paper Straw
Metal Charms

After this, I cut the red Punchinella from the kit in half and glued each piece under the photo and cluster.
I finished off with adding my title and some more ink splatters.

The straws in this kit are perfect for Christmas layouts as the remind me of the North Pole pole.

  1. I really love this Layout, The Colours, Embellishments all go together so well. The Straws also remind me of Candy Canes :)
