Hello CVS friends! I set myself the challenge of using Joyful for a non Christmas layout. And here is what I created a baby themed layout.

I firstly used a cut file to create my background of pop up flowers (Silhouette Design store). I cut my white card stock down to 11x 11 inches and then backed the pop up flowers and created a border by using the Feeling Festive paper.

Once I had my background created I set about choosing embellishments from the collection that could be used for my baby theme. I also fussy cut flowers from the Tis the Season paper

My photo is 6×4 inches portrait and I used papers from the  6×8 inch paper pad which keeps those 12×12 inch papers for larger projects. I chose very typical baby colours of a gingham pink and baby green. My photo was added with foam tape to add height. I created a flower cluster embellishment to the left of my photo, adding some die cut leaves finishing off with the adorable bunny die cut.


I used one of the die cut frames to create another embellishment cluster on the opposite side. I fussy cut the two deers from one of the Pocket Cards and added with foam tape on top of the due cut frame. I also added a heart wood epoxy button

I created my title My Joy using the Puffy Gold Title Stickers and adding a subtitle using one of the phrase sentiments from the Die Cut Ephemera pack. I added a glitter heart and die cut bird to finish off.

I added some finishing touches to my layout, tucking another fussy cut flowers under the deer embellishment cluster and some stars from the Chipboard Stickers 

And there you have it a non Christmas layout using a Christmas collection!

Thank you for stopping by today and see you agin soon!
