Christmas layouts

Hello everyone, Sarah here to share a few layouts I made with this months kits.
I really love this months kit, the Basic Grey papers are fantastic! 
I really love them!! So having said that, I grabbed all the Basic gray Juniper berry papers and cardstock sticker sheet. I started this layout with cutting four squares as my "mat" for my photo. I did mat my photo on white cardstock, I sewed the four patterned papers down with some black thread and cut a doily in half and layered it behind my photo and adhered it all down. I grabbed a few stickers from the sticker sheet and added them, then punched a tab out of some of the wood grain pink paper and added it. I appropriately called this layout Peppermint Mocha, we got a hot one and a cold one that day and oh were they sooooo good! Anyways, I finished this layout off by adding a strip and some tabs at the bottom and then a few stickers and sewing them as a banner. last but not least a few splatters of tinsel Heidi Swapp color shine.

Now this layout is of my youngest daughter. She is amazed with the tree this year. Shes finally understating a but more, but she loves the tree and the lights, shes so fun to watch. 
I started with a white cardstock background, I knew I wanted my photo in the middle of the page so I put a few marks on the page around where I wanted my photo to go, moved it and sewed a few squares around where I had it marked. Put my photo back and clustered some thread under it. Then I decided I wanted to add a bunch of circles to the layout and so I went to punching them out, from all the Basic Grey papers and some vellum. I added them to the page here and there till I liked where I had them and started to sew on some of them, adding little clusters of thread here and there. 

After the circles and thread where I wanted them I added a few stickers from the sticker sheet and then a few paper strips to the top and bottom to keep it as a centered layout. I added some of the pretty gold and white striped washi and did a bit more sewing and thought I was done, but I love the little splatters, so I had to add some on this layout too!! lol I finished it off with some Gold Lame Heidi Swapp color shine. 

Well I hope you enjoyed my layouts with this months lovely kit and if you haven't check them out yourself, head over to the boutique and check them out for yourself!! We would love to have you in the group sharing your creations! 
I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!!!
