Hi creative friends, it’s Tarrah back with and today I am very excited to be sharing my first scrapbook layout using the stunning new Joyful collection!

This collection is absolutely amazing and I hope you love it as much as I love it too!

I started by choosing 2 background patterned papers, I chose the white with gold spots and the multi stripe paper also. I trimmed down the white with gold spots and matted it to the multi stripe paper. I then machine stitched a border around the outer edge. I decided to cut out a gift cut file from CUT to YOU and backed all of the spaces with papers from the A5 paper stack. Once the cut file was all backed, I adhered it to the gold spotted paper using craft foam to give some dimension to the page.

I adhered the black and white photo of my sons, taken one Christmas Day, slightly over to the right tucking in one of the 3′ x 4′ journal cards here also. I also layered 2 pieces of ephemera from the ephemera pack on top of the photo too. To the left of my photo, I placed my title which is ‘Christmas Joy’ from the chipboard icons. I decided to keep the embellishing pretty minimal since the cut file takes up lots of space and is the focus of the page.

I did pull out a few super cute puffy stickers though and placed the reindeer one to the left of my page, the FaLaLaLa one I placed at the bottom section of the cut file. The stars also got a spot on this page as well as one of the gorgeous epoxy wood buttons that I placed in a small cluster over to the left of the page. I added a few more ephemera pieces like the stars, the pink gift that I placed at the bottom of the photo and the Merry Days tag above the photo. I don’t know about you but when I create a layout with one whole collection, I like to add at least 1 of everything to my page! I guess I feel like I am honouring it by using all the things haha!
