Hey everyone, I'm here today with my newest layout. I was so very excited to receive my November kits on my doorstep this week. This month I opted for the Main kit, embellishment, paper add ons and also the December Documented kit. Now, I do not do a daily December type of album as such. I have learned that I can never to commit to projects such as those, however, I do scrapbook multiple events around Christmas time so I thought it would be a great way to have my layouts looking cohesive around this fun event.
I decided today to create a layout where I only used the Main Scrapbooking kit. I also used Irit’s cut files for November. I wanted to be able to demonstrate to you that there is more than enough product in the main kit alone to create layouts. Yes I admit it is lovely to receive all the kits, but for those of you who may only receive the Main kit as a treat to yourself each month for whatever reason, here is a sample using it.
I documented this pic of my little man from christmas 2015. We had just attended a fun playgroup concert and fun day. This was post event, face painted and looking a little weary. I cut the star design from Irit’s files into the background and backed it with one of the exclusive papers. I also then backed the trees with the same paper but because the paper is coloured in a gradient, the tree paper looks darker which is what I had wanted to achieve.
I made a big focus on embellishments; mainly the Hip Kit exclusive ephemera. These are so amazing and so easy to create with.
The photo itself is printed at about 75% the size of a 4×6″ and black and white (of course). To mat the photo I used the plain vellum in the card stock kit. I then cut an ephemera frame in half and placed one half to the top left corner.
The title was also an ephemera piece which I added directly to the photo in the negative space with foam tape. I love the shadow around its edges that is created because of that dimensional adhesive.
