Pinkfresh Studio Oh What Fun - Christmas Traditions

Hello again! Karen C here with another scrapbook layout using the very festive 'Oh What Fun' collection from Pinkfresh Studio. I'm really enjoying using this collection and scrapbooking memories of Christmas past is really getting me in the Christmas mood. 

I started with a 12 x 12 sheet of red Lava Bazzill Cardstock and on this I layered a sheet of of the Good Tidings patterned paper (B Side) which I had trimmed about ¼" off of each edge and using my sewing machine I stitched round the edges with white thread.

In the centre of the layout I placed my three 4x6 photos which I had double matted as a block with the red cardstock and some gold mirror card. The photos were placed at an angle with foam underneath to add some dimension. 

Using my Silhouette I die cut my title from some more of the gold mirror card and backed this with smooth white cardstock.

I used some images from the Snow Globes patterned paper to back the letters D & O of the title and  glued it to the layout, slightly overlapping the bottom edges of the photos, with foam underneath so it was the same height as the photos.

I made tags from the Good Tidings patterned paper and mirror card, threaded these with bakers twine and tucked these behind the photos. I always add a little wet glue behind the loose ends of the bakers twine to keep them in place.

I embellished with some of the puffy stickers and chipboard stickers from the collection and various wood veneer stars from my stash.

I finished the layout by typing my journalling and date onto white cardstock, outlined the words in black gel pen and added them to the bottom of the layout.

Thank you for visiting today. I think this will be my last post before Christmas so I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy & Healthy New Year and I hope you get some time over the holidays to be creative.

Take Care,
Karen x x
