This is now week two of the Artfull Crafts Christmas countdown - the theme of which is albums/layouts or project life spreads. I love all the inspiration and hope you are having some time to join in. Today I am showing you a few Christmas layouts using various ranges.
The first was created using the bold and Geometric Simple Stories DIY Collection. This collection has an awesome selection of papers and stickers to chose from with a more traditional Christmas colour scheme paired with black and dark brown to give some added pop!
The layout has been created by layering distressed and inked papers and then adding chipboard, diecuts, flowers and stickers. The flourish is a cut up ampersand. The photo is of my oldest son which was taken around his first real Christmas when he was just over a year old. He was a premmie and had only been home a week before Christmas so we stayed home that year.
My second layout is also using Simple Stories DIY Collection - just a bit more simply. I have only used some of two papers from the paper collection - one for the photo mat and one with the circles for the flower centres on the flowers. The base is Kraft cardstock sprinkled with mists. I have added some of the paper diecuts and chipboard from the range as well. Finished off with a cameo title and a little journalling. This is the same boy in the previous layout but eight years later! He has just turned 14 this week!
My third and final layout is using my favourite Christmas collection North Pole by Kaisercraft- so much so that I had to buy more of it after getting my design team kit! I first sprayed the background white cardstock with my mists. The hexagon background was created using my cameo. I then just layered papers, collectables, photos of my 11 year old and flowers to create a less traditional Christmas layout. I love how it has turned out.
Have a great week and enjoy the Christmas countdown - I would love to see some layouts or albums created by you for the Christmas Countdown . Make sure to load them here for a chance to win some prizes.
