Hello everyone. It’s Kylie back with you today to share a brand new layout I have created. I am a little bit excited as it is the first layout I have made with the new ‘Joyful’ collection. My children and I have always loved watching Christmas movies with ‘Elf’ being one of our favourites. So today’s layout features a cute pair of Elf legs in tribute to our favourite tradition and movie.

Creating my Elf legs was easy and you can give it a try too! I cut two pieces of ‘HOLLY DAYS’ paper to measure 5″x 2″. For the feet I cut two pieces of ‘MAKING SPIRITS BRIGHT’ paper to measure 3.5″x 2″. Finally, I cut some little cuffs from the ‘TIS THE SEASON’ paper to measure 2″ wide, and I fussy cut along one of the zig zag lines. All that was left to do then was shape the feet. I used a corner punch to round them out and trimmed out a piece from the top to make the look more authentically ‘Elf’.To finish I added one of the gold stars to the toes.

Both the ‘Advent’ and ‘Feeling Festive’ papers were used for the background paper, with a border strip added from ‘Tis The Season’ and ‘Deck The Halls’ papers. My Elf was adhered to the top of the page and I used some foam adhesive squares to add the cuffs to give it more dimension.

My photos were trimmed to a smaller 3″x 4″ size to be adhered across the lower side of my layout. I used some of the cute die cuts and chipboard stickers  to add balance to their position and add more colour.

I so love the inclusion of the puffy gold title stickers in the ‘Joyful’ collection. I used them to create a large title to suit my page and adhered them next to my Elf legs in the upper portion of my layout.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. I hope you give my little ‘Elf’ theme a try for yourself.

Until next time,

Kylie.
