Matching Pajamas // 12x12 Christmas Layout Share

December 07, 2017

Hello crafty friends! It feels like it has been a century since I shared a 12x12 layout with you all! If you'd like to stay up to date with my craft ventures, check out my Vlogmas videos where I post every single day! I even shared a sneak peek of this layout in one of the videos. Plus, there's tons of behind the scenes content and tips and tricks. Today thought, I am here to share my first 12x12 Christmas layout this season. 

The green triangle background paper gives off Christmas tree vibes. All of the patterned papers used on this layout are from the My Mind's Eye Sleigh Bells collection. Although it has a vintage feel, I think it looks great when paired with some more clean and simple elements from Echo Park's Christmas lines. I layered a strip of washi tape between the green traingle background and the red chevron pattern.

To balance the left and right sides of the layout, I created a fun piece in the upper left hand corner. As you may already know, I fell in love with this technique when I see Kira Ness do it on a variety of layouts. You simple cut a slit in the background paper, fold over the corners and tuck a different patterned paper behind it. It's a fun way to mix and match patterns. I included two Tim Holtz phrase stickers to bring in more black to the top cluster.

Now, this may sound crazy, but I attached actual jingle bells to my layout! I used white and green twine to connect the two. I tucked the string under this chipboard tag piece from Echo Park. I think it is an adorable touch, but I am worried about the page protector becoming damaged because of it.

Mu photo is simple layered on top of numerous patterned papers from My Mind's Eye. I slipped in some twine to keep the texture levels similar across the layout. I also threw in a tiny red paper clip from KI Memories. 

My title is nestled to the left of the photos and on top of my washi strip. I believe that if I use washi on every single layout somehow, one day I will finish a role. It's bound to happen, right? Anyway, the first word is made out of American Crafts Thickers. I find this font particularly annoying to work with. I don't think I do well with the color or the circular shape, but I finally found a layout they work on! I used a Pretty Little Studio label from their Halloween collection to hold my Basic Grey alphabet stickers. I miss Basic Grey so much! I decorated this cluster by using an Echo Park layered brad. Can you believe I used a brad?!

The brad usage continues as I included on in the cluster to the right of the photo as well! I also grabbed this Echo Park chipboard present as a main focal point. I love the bold red and black combo on top of the crisp white doily. I sprinkled some smaller chipboard pieces from Echo Park on the side of the photo as well. I hope you enjoyed this layout share! I'm so glad to have had time to do a 12xx12 layout. It had been way too long. Don't forget to check out my Vlogmas videos to get behind the scenes sneak peeks, giveaways, and more!
