Designer’s Choice: Holiday Quilt

By Gina Lideros

December 31, 2014

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.
