Let It Snow | Pink Paislee Yuletide | Sassy Scrappers

Hi everyone!

 Today I am back to share another Christmas layout with you created for Sassy Scrappers!
I am working with the gorgeous Pink Paislee Yuletide collection so keep an eye out for some festive inspiration using this collection!

The Kraft and snowflake paper from the Yuletide collection is super pretty, I knew I had to create a winter themed page as soon as I saw this paper! I cut a snowflake cut file out from plain white cardstock so that I could overlay it on top of the snowflake paper.

There are also lots of snowflake embellishments in the Yuletide collection so I made use of these on this page too! I added some of the acetate snowflakes around the outside of the cut file as well as layering some of them on top of the photo and on the that cute tag that I placed beside my photo.

I added a few things from my stash like the Brrrr letters, the silver, glittery star, the large chipboard snowflake and some of the phrase stickers. I added one of the cute metal clips to the top right of my photo as well as adding one of the acetate frames under the same corner.

I added some twine through the top of the tag and finished off the page with some white mist to replicate snow!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! Make sure to check out the Sassy store - you will find so much goodness in there!

Happy creating!

Peace Love Joy | Pink Paislee Yuletide | Sassy Scrappers

Hi everyone!

Today I am back to share another Christmas design team layout with you created for Sassy Scrappers!
I am working with the gorgeous Pink Paislee Yuletide collection so keep an eye out for some festive inspiration using this collection for the next couple of weeks!

I just love how big titles look on scrapbook layouts! This 'Peace Love Joy' looks so pretty cut out from the red paper! Once the cut file was cut out, I used foam dots so that it would sit up off my page. Once that was stuck down, it was really easy to arrange everything else on my layout.   

I knew that I wanted to have the photo inside the 'O' of the 'Joy' word. I also backed the open circles in the Christmas tree in the 'Peace' word with some left over green paper. I chose a non busy paper for the background and this one with the spots on it was perfect to use.

I added one of the gorgeous metal tree clips to the top of the 'Joy' word. I also added some die-cuts both tucked in under the cut file and layered on the top of the cut file. Some enamel dots, the gold Heidi Swapp Color Shine and the flair button are all from my stash and were added for a little extra detail. 

Thanks so much for stopping by this week!

Christmas Wishes | Tis The Season | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hi friends!

Today I am sharing a new design team layout created for Cocoa Vanilla Studio featuring the gorgeous Tis The Season collection!

I have a little bit of Tis The Season left in my Cocoa Vanilla collections and one of my aims this year is to use up some stash! What better way to do that is to dive in deep and get creating! I pulled out the Very Merry paper and decided straight away that would be my background as its one of the only full sheets I have left from this collection.

I have mainly scraps left from some of the other papers so I cut out some Christmas tree designs using my Silhouette Cameo from a few of the different papers. I like how the tree designs tie in with the trees in the background paper. Tip: Cutting out some designs from leftover papers using your electronic die-cut machine is a great way to use them up and add more interest to your layout.

I matted my photo using one of the die-cut ephemera pieces and a paper doily. I also tucked in an accessory sticker to the right hand side of the photo. My title is made up of an accessory sticker (popped up with foam squares) and a die-cut ephemera piece. I also added a cute fabric bow, a wood veneer holly piece and an enamel dot to help highlight the title.

A few extra embellishments like sequins and flair buttons were also used to help finish the layout. I also added a few splatters of white mist.

Thanks so much for stopping by the Cocoa Vanilla blog today!

Happy creating!

Boys Will Be Boys | Tarrah McLean

Hi everyone!


Today I am sharing a new design team layout for The Cut Shoppe using the star from the Boy Mom cut file set!


I was scrolling through some of the boy themed cut files in the amazing new store and came across the star in the Boy Mom set, I loved that it had all the pieces in that I could use different papers to back the star with. 

Boy Mom

I cut the star from a cement coloured paper and then used lots of different patterned papers from a 6 x 6 paper pad to back the star segments. Once the star was all backed, I used foam tape to pop the star up off the background paper. 

As the star makes quite an impact on the page, I left the other embellishing to a minimum. I added just a few chipboard and die-cut stars, some journal spots, clear stickers and also some phrase stickers.

The Boys Will Be Boys card made the perfect title right beside the photo of my sons. I also added a chipboard arrow to the top right corner of the photo. A few splatters of black mist finished off my page.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Make sure you check out the brand new Cut Shoppe store for all your digital cut files!

Ho Ho Ho | Pink Paislee Yuletide | Sassy Scrappers

Hi everyone!

Today I am back to share another Christmas layout with you created for Sassy Scrappers!
I am working with the gorgeous Pink Paislee Yuletide collection so keep an eye out for some festive inspiration using this collection for the next couple of weeks!

I have had this photo of my son printed out for quite a few years and I finally found a reason to use it on a page! As you can see by the date stamp, the photo was taken 6 years ago! 

I cut the green Ho, Ho, Ho journal spot from the Deck the Halls paper to go right beside the photo and also layered a paper doily  from my stash underneath the photo. I tucked the gold striped acetate frame in the right hand side of the photo too. A couple of things from my stash added to this layout are the wood veneer tree, the wood veneer mini wreath, the phrase stickers and the tiny gold stars. 

I love the Santa's from this collection, they are super cute and go perfectly with my cute Santa! I used a puffy sticker one and a larger die-cut one layered over the photo and the journal spot. I also really like how the flair button sits over the top of the wreath, the wreath acts like a grounding point for the flair button.
Thanks so much for stopping by this week!

Merry Christmas | Pink Paislee Yuletide | Sassy Scrappers

Hi everyone!

Today I am back to share another Christmas layout with you created for Sassy Scrappers!

I am working with the gorgeous Pink Paislee Yuletide collection over the next few weeks so keep an eye out for some festive inspiration using this collection!

This week I have created a page with lots of tags in my design. Because there were 4 tags in the die-cut pack, I decided to also my cut my photo into a tag shape in order to have an odd number of tags on the page. Odd numbers are often better when it comes to designs. I chose the cute spotted paper as my background and adhered the tags to the paper.

I threaded some red and white baker's twine through the holes in the tops of the tags and glued down the ends of the twine at the edge of the page. I also added one of the gorgeous gold tree clips to the right hand corner of my photo.

I layered the tags with some extra embellishments like the stars and candy canes from the die-cut pack. I also added a super cute flair button from my stash that went with my photo to the left. I added a few phrase stickers from my stash to bring in a little bit of black and white.

Thanks so much for stopping by this week!
