VIDEO: Christmas Cutie // 12x12 Layout Share

December 12, 2017

Hi there crafty friends! I am finally back with another 12x12 layout! Luckily, this past weekend, I had tons of time to create. I documented a lot of different Christmas memories in different forms. Although I am not making a December Daily, I am documenting my 2016 Christmas memories in a 6x8 album. Today, let's dive in to this 12x12 spread!

I started this layout using a sketch that Sara Scraps shared in the Crafty Maven Getaway Facebook Group for their online crop. I pulled out a bunch of Christmas supplies and jumped right in by pulling out different patterned papers. I chose a couple of Wild Whisper Home for the Holidays collection as the main focus. I absolutely want to cuddle this paper with the beautiful array of plant sprigs. Let's dive right in to the process video!

I followed the sketch pretty closely this time. I usually have a very hard time making sketches work for me. I still managed to mix and match various collections on this layout. It's much easier to mix Christmas collections since they tend to have similar color schemes.

My title is made out of some Target chipboard letters and a Heidi Swapp acetate word diecut. I put some washi tape under the title to make it feel like it was not so floaty. I also paired a candy cane chipboard sticker from Echo Park next to the title to bring in a brighter red.

Underneath the title I include some different cut apart pieces. The green one is from Elle's Studio and the red one is from Pretty Little Studio. I also sprinkled in a couple of brads and some chipboard circles. To the right of the title is my short little journaling. One of my goals going in to 2018 is to work on journaling on my layouts. I typically forget to put on journaling and it is such a bad habit.

While most of my layouts are pretty much self explanatory stories, there is always more that could be told. I used some gold doilies to help bring some attention to the photos. I used so many brads on this layout and I can hardly believe it! I haven't used brace in so long, but these Christmas ones are adorable!

I hope you enjoyed this fun process video! There are many more holiday pages to come. If you have any specific videos or projects you would like to see, please leave me a comment with your idea! Thanks for stopping by!
