Designer’s Choice: Holiday Quilt

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.

 

Design Team Choice: Pattern Piecing

 

Hi everyone!  It’s Gina here today and I’m so excited to share with you a recent layout that I made using the December ‘We are Made of Stories’ Kit.  When I first saw the papers & embellishments included in the December kit, I was so excited.  I absolutely loved the patterned papers included in the kit.  Which brings me to my design team choice: pattern piecing.

To create my layout I first started by using a punch to punch out triangles from pattern paper.  Then I lined them up on my page, with a ruler to create the fun background design.

Next, I used a sewing machine to stitch the pieces in place.  I used embellishments from the kit and the December Favorite Elf Add-on to embellish my page.

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!
