Hi everyone! It’s Gina here today and I’m so excited to share with you another layout that I made this month using the December ‘We are Made of Stories’ Kit. I was inspired by the papers in the December kit, to create my background. I absolutely love the Elle’s Studio Holiday quilt paper! I knew right away when I saw it, that I wanted to use it to create my background.
To create my background, I simply cut around four small diamond shapes to create a larger diamond shape. I then, cut other papers from the kit the same size to match and then laid them down on white cardstock to create my background. I love that the large diamond shapes grouped together looks like a holiday quilt. I had a fun photo of my daughter with her friends ice-skating on a recent trip to Tahoe. I trimmed my photo the same size as the other diamond shapes to help blend in to the background
Next, I used a sewing machine to stitch a few of the pieces and embellishments in place. I used embellishments from the kit and added a few embellishments from the December Favorite Elf Add-on.
I hope you are inspired by my layout today. If you create a project with one of our current kits, we would love to see it. Be sure to share it with us on Facebook.
