Are you looking for a way to brighten up a corner of a room with holiday cheer? Or maybe you need a handmade gift idea for someone who could use some additional Christmas spirit?
Christmas banners to the rescue! Banners are perfect for adding to a mantle, banister, sideboard, window, treat table, and more! I created this Jingle All the Way Banner for the Scrapbook.com Holiday Inspiration Series on their YouTube channel and wanted to share it here with you today!
Watch as I take you through my step-by-step batch process for creating focal point images by selecting a main image, adding in supporting images, connecting them all together with a shape, and then adding additional layers underneath. We start from the image to the front and work our way back to the base layer.
These concepts can be used for anything and can be applied to any type of collection! Try this process for creating a batch of cards, tags, embellishment clusters for a layout, gift bags, and more! Watch the video below!
Fall is my family’s favorite time of year to be outside! Whether it’s driving through the mountains to see the colorful leaves, a visit to the pumpkin patch, or walks around the neighborhood, we can never seem to get enough of our favorite season!
I fell head over heels for the coordinating stencil for this collection and decided to add it to the background paper (3×4 Elements paper). I love the way the stenciled details look peeking out from behind the Foliage Bits & Pieces. I repeated the stenciling around the page in three areas to create a visual triangle in my design and to keep your eye moving around the page.
I fussy-cut the journal block from the 3×4 Elements paper and then added it to the right of my photo at a downward angle. A pair of foliage leaves and a butterfly connect the journal block to the layered photo block and add even more to the outdoorsy feel!
I combined the chipboard “AUTUMN” word with orange letters from my stash for the title. I added distress ink to the orange letters to tie them in with the inking in the background.
This beautiful collection makes me long for sunny Autumn days and fall drives in the mountains! I can’t wait for the leaves to begin changing! Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you feel inspired to scrapbook some of your fall family photos, too!
This class combines all of my favorite things; scrapbooking, papercrafting, gift ideas, parties, holidays, and seasons! I poured my heart and soul into this project with the hope that it will inspire YOU to get creative, too!
Happy Friday, Friends! I’m back with another video featuring the second layout I created using the Close to My Heart January 2019 Kits.
Each monthly kit includes two double-page layouts with the instructions, stickers, die cuts, and sheet protectors to complete those layouts. I used most of the stickers and die cuts on the layout I posted on Monday. So, for today’s page I decided to create my own quilled flower embellishments using the Decorative Borders Thin Cuts Dies. Watch the video to see how!
HOORAY FOR TODAY
I also used the title as inspiration for all of the circles across the top of the page — I wanted it to feel like a party! Can you see where I added stamping, embossing, and dimensional dots, as well?!
I’ll be back towards the end of this month with my layouts using the February kit. I hope to see you then!
