Happy New Year everyone! I’ve been so busy enjoying the holidays, I haven’t scrapped in ages! Today I got some time in my scraproom and got to do my first Christmas scrapping of the year. I feel almost all Christmased out, but I had to get this layout done before packing away my holiday supplies for another year (I did a mini album earlier as well, which I’ll share in a later post). Because I hadn’t done a layout in awhile (over a month- sacrilege!) I headed on over to Sketchy Thursdays to get my creative juices flowing. Here is this week’s sketch:
And here’s what I came up with:
|Santa Baby 12×12 layout|
I started with a piece of Crumb Cake card stock (Stampin’ Up!) and 2 patterns from the Holly Berry Designer Series Paper (Stampin’ Up!). I wanted to use 2 photos, so I decided to move the whole layout down and to the corner a bit to make room for a smaller cluster towards the upper right. I lined all elements with black marker to bring them together. After the paper for the main cluster was adhered I splattered paint in white and “shopping bag brown” diagonally across the page.
I picked another paper (from My Minds Eye Lost and Found series) to use for accents. I picked a lined paper in cream and red, and cut a circle and 2 bracket shapes (one from labels 4 nest abilities, and one from the Decorative Labels punch from Stampin’ Up!). The snowman and large snowflake were cut from my Winter Woodlands Cricut cartridge (last year- for cards I never got around to making!). Snowman is accented with fired brick Distress Stickles, and the snowflake is coated in Dazzling Diamonds (Stampin’ Up!). The number 10 is a piece from a folding ruler. I believe the small letter stickers are Kaiserkraft. Title letters are Thickers.
Then I scattered the whole thing with snowflakes following the diagonal paint splats: cut from a cuttlebug die and rub-ons from Imaginesce.
