Xmas Morning Layout by Kim Jeffress

Saturday, December 8, 2018

Yay!!! The holiday season is in full swing! Kim Jeffress here today on the blog, and I don't know about you, but I can never scrap my Christmas photos from the previous year in any other month than December! I think I’m in a better mood and thinking more festive. So when I saw the Slug Bug Christmas Tree cut file I just couldn't wait to get started. You are probably thinking - why a white tree and why a yellow car? Well at home we have this gorgeous white Christmas tree that we bought two years ago and it is my absolute favorite so I knew I had to do a white tree on top of the car. And as for the car, well, it is Summer here down in Australia and since yellow is my favorite color it was kinda a given!
I started with the Slug Bug Christmas Tree cut file and I used some white cardstock and cut it on my Silhouette Cameo. I then backed the car with some smooth yellow cardstock from Bazzill Basics. I backed the tree section of the tree with vellum. My layout base was the super fun Paper 15 from Paige’s Whimsical collection - I thought the happy clouds would be the perfect backdrop for my car. I added my car to the bottom of the layout, lifting it with some pop dots for some added dimension. When I added the tree I noticed the clouds were showing through the vellum, so I trimmed a piece of white cardstock and slid it under the pop dots under the tree. I love the soft effect that is still created with the vellum. I then took some of the new Foam Mini Thickers and some older gold ones from my stash from Crate Paper and curved my title around the bonnet of the car.

I loved the rain falling from some of the clouds so I wanted to emulate that a little with my photos so I added some hot pink ribbon from my stash to look like they were hanging or falling from the top of the layout. I then chose some words from the Stickers and Sticker Book that added to the Christmas theme and placed them around my photos. I also added some of the Rub-Ons and Puffy Stickers before adding my journaling using my Typecast Typewriter. Finally I punched stars from gold glitter paper from my stash to complete my layout.

I just love how my layout screams color and fun and festivity! Who says Christmas has to be the traditional red and green right?!
