Christmas Layout by Elsie Robinson

Saturday, December 7, 2019

Hey everyone, it’s Elsie Robinson here and I’m so excited to share my first Christmas layout of the year with you all! I used the Christmas cut file with the Truly Grateful collection to create this layout. Truly Grateful is not Christmas-themed, but it was surprisingly easy to create a pretty traditional looking Christmas layout. Let me show you how...
I firstly started by cutting the Christmas cut file from white cardstock using a Silhouette Cameo 3. I then decided to hand-stitch around the entire cut file because I love the extra texture and definition it adds. I’m not gonna lie, this was super fiddly, but I made sure I only used 3 of the 6 strands in my embroidery floss and didn’t pull too hard on the thread so the cut file wouldn’t rip. Thankfully it all turned out well and didn’t take as long as I thought it would to finish!

Next I glued down some super small foam dots across the back of the cut file so I could create dimension between the patterned papers and the title. Talking of the patterned papers, I stuck to a pretty traditional Christmas colour scheme of red and green. However, because a lot of the red patterns have pink in them too, it meant I could introduce pink embellishments and still create a Christmassy page with a colour scheme that suited my style!

To embellish, I used existing embellishments from Truly Grateful and reimagined them as Christmas embellishments. For example, I used the red and green tree Cardstock Stickers to be like Christmas trees and I only used red/pink/green Floral Die Cuts. I also used Paige's Star Confetti Stencil and added white modeling paste to my white background for subtle festive detail. As a final flourish I used a snowflake punch to punch out small snowflakes and dotted them across the layout.

Thanks for stopping by everyone, make sure you check out the rest of Paige’s cut files for all of your festive crafty needs!
