FALALA Layout by Kelly Daye

Friday, November 6, 2020

  Hello, hello! Kelly Daye here with my newest layout for Paige’s Silhouette Design Team. With Halloween in my rearview mirror, I’ve started to think about Christmas. Fun fact, I have a little aqua tree for my craft room with dedicated ornaments in aqua and pink. Could these papers from Go the Scenic Route be any more perfect?

I’ve used Paige’s FALALA cut file from her exclusive 25 Days of Christmas Cut Files. You can also buy the entire bundle that includes the backing pieces!! Awesome right?! Christmas scrapping has never been easier. I cut The FALALA from white cardstock then off-set the cut file and cut it again from blue cardstock. Each layer was popped up with foam tape on the dainty blue floral background, the B-side of Paper 23. This floral square from the Chipboard Stickers was the perfect match and message. Happiness is the many vintage ornaments I’ve collected along the way and love using every Christmas.

The pink and floral Chipboard Sticker is 3x3 inches, so I made my photo the same size for balance. The letters in FALALA were cut from the B-side of Paper 20, a gorgeous pink, and the B-side of Paper 9, a stunning two-tone blue. I just love how all three papers meld together so well. I've decorated three of the letters with half of a foil mandala from the Ephemera Die Cuts.

Rather than backing the cut file, all the letters are popped up with foam tape and make the 4th layer of my layout. Working on a diagonal, I added light blue flowers from the Floral Die Cuts, navy fussy cut flowers from Paper 9, fussy cut butterflies from the 6x8 Paper Pad, tiny Enamel Dots, and a pink photo turn from the Chipboard Stickers. I hung one of the beautiful Charms from a pin along with some beads, sequins, and silver thread. So pretty! Finally, a sprinkle of pink and silver sequins from my stash topped off with silver Stickles and white Nuvo drops.

Thank you so much for joining me here. I hope you’re inspired to do some Christmas scrapping with Go the Scenic Route and Paige's 25 Days of Christmas Cut Files!

  2. Thank you lovely Julie ! I'm a bit mad for these colours and all the stuff in my craft room is aqua and this same pink. So happy you enjoyed this 'non-traditional' bit of Christmas fun! 🥰
