Holly Fairy - This layout was made to celebrate the costume Emily and I made for her to wear for Book Week in the year 2000.
Using some of the Mocha Divine Bazzill left over, I mounted my large photo. Then I cut the three small photos to measure 4cm x 4cm.
With scraps from Rejoice #22, Home for the Holidays & Cozy Christmas I cut more pieces 4cm x 4cm. I arranged all these small squares into a grid on the cream card.
I cut two branches from Safari Bazzill with the Sizzix Holiday Greens Thinlits set. I dabbed them with some Versamark Ink and embossed them with a little Stampendous Frantage Shabby White Embossing Enamel. I applied these to the layout and added the self adhesive domes from the kit as berries.
I used the Bigz XL Handmade lettering die to cut my title from scraps of cream card. These were coloured with Distress Oxide Ink in Forest Green and Aged Mahogany. Once arranged on the page I added some Crystal Stickles.
Christingle - For my last Christmas layout with the December 2019 kit, I made another layout using this old favourite photo from 1995, when the children were dressed up for the Christingle Service at our local church. I have scrapped this again so I can place a layout in each of the children's scrapbook albums.
To start off I have used some of the gutted cardstock from previous layouts made from this kit. The outer layer is Fawn, then Grenadine, and the paper cut to 28cm x 28cm, is the burlap print side of the Protea paper. I splattered some Dylusions - Ink Spray - White Linen over the page.
There was a doily in the kit, which I managed to mess up! - So I have taken one of similar size from my stash and placed it in the centre of the layout. I mounted my photo onto a scrap of Grenadine Bazzill and mounted this towards the bottom of the doily.
Next I die cut seven fir trees with the Woodlands Sizzix Thinlits set. I cut the trees from scraps of Safari and Fawn Bazzill. They were treated to a coat of Versamark Ink and some Super Sparkle embossing powder. I'm not sure the photo does justice to the amount of sparkle in these trees! I placed the trees around the base of the photo.
I created the title and date with the Wanted Sizzix Sizzlit alphabet die and some scraps of Mocha Divine, which took on a different colour when glitter was added with Crystals Stickles.
I also added some Stickles to three wooden stars from a previous kit and placed them around the doily.
That's all for the December kit, and I will be back next with the January kit.
Thanks for looking.
