Hello Cocoa Vanilla friends !
Sophie here and I am very excited to share my first layout using the beautiful Merry & Bright Christmas collection !
I started by playing with watercolors on thick white cardstock, mixing aquas and red on the bottom of the page. I removed about a 1/2 inch of the white cardstock to adhere it on the red and pink “Jingle All the Way” patterned paper. I machine stitched around the page with aqua thread.
I teared a big chunk out of the “Count Down” paper and the “Oh Christmas Tree” paper that I put on the center of my layout to sit my photos.
They are photos of Sabrina and our dog Fiona right after playing in the first snow (so little did we have !!).
I printed the photos in black and white, added tissue paper and adhesive foam and arranged them in a horizontal line on the teared patterned paper. I tucked in a beautiful pocket card between the photos for my title.
I created two floral clusters under which I wrote down my journaling. I also created a third cluster on the upper right side of the page with a Christmas ornament, tags and stickers from the Accessory Stickers and Die Cut Ephemera pack.
Oh how I love the end-result !!!
This Christmas line, I am telling you, is just perfection ! The color scheme, the beautiful patterns, the pocket cards, the numerous embellishments…Ahhh, just can’t have enough and can’t wait to start another page !!!
Here are other close-ups :
I hope you felt inspired by my page today, thank you so much for stopping by !
Happy crafting !
