I love getting happy emails - I may have mentioned that once or twice before :) This time I teamed up with Kerri Bradford and picked a few of her adorable digital Christmas designs to play with on a layout. I chose the Black + White Christmas set:
As well as the December Additions: The Pages.
And here's what I made with the help of my Silhouette CAMEO:
Description: When I saw these snowflakes I immediately knew what I wanted to create! And then when I was picking a collection to use I saw the Brighton Pier collection by Studio Calico and thought it'd be fun to branch out from the traditional red and green.
Journaling says: It's so fun to see Fox be the protective big brother. When Jane ran away in the parking lot Fox immediately went after her and hugged her until we could grab her.
How to: Die cut the snowflake background found in the December Additions: The Pages from white cardstock using a Silhouette CAMEO. Back the open spaces of the snowflakes with colorful papers from the Brighton Pier collection by Studio Calico. Back the layout with a white patterned transparency followed by white cardstock and staple a few of the snowflakes in the center. Adhere two photos on the left side and tuck a mask under the edge. Stitch through a wood veneer word with black floss and place it under the photos. Die cut the "Baby it's cold outside" phrase found in the Black & White Christmas set from black cardstock and glue just the "it's cold outside" above the photos. Stitch silver foil Thickers at the top to complete the title. Place a few pink sentiment stickers around the layout and apply a few silver star rub ons as well. Journal on the top right corner with a black pen and stamp the date below in black ink. Drop black India ink around the layout to finish.
