Merry Pinkmas Layout by Kelly Daye

Saturday, November 25, 2023

Hi friends! Kelly Daye here with a new layout using Paige’s fun & festive Sugarplum Wishes collection! My idea was to create a pink Christmas tree like the one we put up in our home.
I cut out Paige's Christmas Tree Branches Cut File three times - all are 9 inches tall, then 7.5, 5.5 and 3.5 inches wide. The middle cut file is vellum and the other two are cut from pink cardstock. Each tree was creased down the middle, then stacked and glued together. To decorate my dimensional tree, I fussy cut lots of ornaments from Paper 10 and glued them to all the layers. The vellum layer lets you see through to the ornaments on the bottom layer. Once decorated, I popped up my tree with foam in the center of Paper 5. Then I cut a circle out of Paper 1, trimmed off ½” from two sides, and centered it on top to frame my tree. To add even more texture, I chain stitched around the frame with all 6 strands of DMC variegated thread #4502. The embellishments are all from Sugarplum WishesCardstock StickersFoam StickersMini Puffy Stickers, and a tag with the year surround my photos. The title, Merry Pinkmas, was added just inside the frame using the Mini Thickers - I just love the sweet mix of patterns and colors on them!
I hope you’re inspired to use Paige's cut files with Sugarplum Wishes to make something Christmasy and dimensional on your own pretty layouts!
