Hello Crafty friends !

It’s Sophie on the blog today with another layout created with the beautiful Merry & Bright collection.


I highlighted a beautiful everyday moment of Sabrina playing with a new app on her Ipad.

I decided to use my label punch to create a design.

I punched several labels out of different patterned papers from the collection and aligned them in two vertical rows on the left side of the page. I machine stitched on them with white thread for more interest.


I emphasised my photo, the focal point of my page, by putting a big rectangle of the wood grain “Season’s Greetings” patterned paper behind it. I also added framed from the Ephemera pack behind the photo, as well as tissue paper and adhesive foam.


I put my title, created with alphabet dies, on top of the photo, and created a big floral cluster on the right lower corner of the page.


I also teared big chunks of patterned papers (Count Down, Oh Christmas Tree and Happy Holidays) that I adhered on the bottom of the layout.

Finally, I embellished with scattered flowers and stickers some of the labels, and wrote down my journaling on one of the Pocket Cards from the same collection.

Here are some close-ups:







I hope you like this page ! It’s another example of a layout not Christmas related created with a gorgeous Christmas collection. And using a punch with a repetitive image is a great way to use many different patterned papers on a page without making it too busy..!

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Happy crafting !

Sophie xx
