Hello, Karen here with my second layout using Simple Stories Baking Spirits Bright collection which records a memory of my daughter baking goodies for a school Christmas International Food Fair a few years ago.
As I often do, I started my layout by trimming a quarter of an inch from each edge of a sheet of 12x12 white cardstock. I then double matted this with some gold mirror card and a sheet of the red Sweet Holiday Wishes paper. I then layered a 4" wide strip of the Season To Sparkle star paper onto the white cardstock leaving a narrow space on the left.
Using white thread I machine stitched around the edges of the cardstock and the strip of patterned paper.
My 6x4 photo was also double matted with gold mirror card and the Sweet Holiday Wishes paper and placed on the layout with some 3D foam underneath to add some dimension.
One of the titles from the Foam Sticker sheet was added to the top of the layout and journalling strips printed on the computer were added underneath. I really like how the photo nestles into the title and journalling strips.
I then took four tags, which were relevant to my theme, from the Tags sheet and created some bunting by hanging these onto some red twine.
The tags were placed evenly along the bottom of the layout and stuck to the layout with 3D foam underneath. The twine was then twirled and stuck down with some liquid glue.
Two of the gingerbread men from the Foam Sticker sheet were added to the bottom two corners of the layout.
Finally I punched some tiny stars from cardstock to replicate the stars on the patterned paper and scattered these over the layout.
Thank you for visiting today. I hope you like my layout and I;ll be back again soon with another layout using Baking Spirits Bright.
Take Care, Karen x x
