Stamps & Tickets & Banners…oh my!

Hello & happy almost 2014 everyone!   This is Jenni here to share my last and favorite layout using the December ‘All Is Bright’ kit and ‘Holly Jolly’ add-on.  I love scrapbooking, but I really love documenting the holidays and Christmas most of all.  One of my favorite ways to combine lots of bits and pieces is to cluster them all together and create a banner.  Lots of impact, lots of color and pattern and with a kit, everything already works together beautifully!

I used the Basic Grey Vintage Stamps and Fancy Pants Ticket Roll to create a couple banners for my layout.  I have been saving this photo of my husband’s family Christmas photo card from 1975 for the perfect retro holiday page.  These stamps and tickets were a perfect addition because of the muted colors, retro images and fonts.

I threw in some of the Elle’s Studio Bits & Pieces and several of the Glitz rhinestones too.  Punching shapes into a few of the tickets to layer some glitter paper behind them adds more interest.  Also, I embossed one of the Scrapbook Circle stamps in silver onto vellum for some extra bling.

I matted the photo on top of a several pieces of patterned paper and created a vertical element with it and a Scrapbook Circle printable.   All these little bits together give you lots of bang for your buck and make a big statement!
