Designer Choice | December 27

December 27, 2013


I hope you all had a fantastic holiday and a wonderful December!  This is Melissa here with you today showing one last layout I made with the December “All is Bright” kit and the “Holly Jolly” add-on kit.

Christmas Day - Border

I layered three different pattern papers on the background of this layout and then layered my photos on top. All of these photos were taken in December of 2012 on Christmas Day. I wanted to include a bunch of them, so I sized them down in Photoshop before printing and then printed them all out and left a thin white border. I was able to fit 5 total pictures on the layout by shrinking the photos down.




On one of the other layouts I made, I created a circle cut file and used my Silhouette Cameo to cut it out. Because I loved that gold glitter paper and didn’t want to waste any part of it, I used the negative circle pieces from the cut I created and layered them around this layout and then placed a smaller embellishment on top. Lastly, I layered the small Studio Calico stickers underneath the gold glitter circles. I also used one of the cut files from the December kits on one of the gold circles.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today! I hope you have a wonderful end of December and a very merry New Year’s!
