“Merry, Merry Merry and Bright” for Scrap The Girls

Hey Creatives!

I’m back on the blog today with my very last share for Scrap the Girls for 2019.  This month we are using another fabulous mood board, this one is Christmas inspired, but if Christmas isn’t your thing, you could absolutely do something different, so I do hope you play along!  For me, Christmas is everything, so I’ve run with the white and Olive green in the mood board to create this Christmas page.

and here is the mood board:

I just love this one, I’m feeling a very ‘Aussie Christmas’ vibe with it!  I’ve started the page with the ‘Merry Merry Merry and Bright’ cut file from CUT to YOU and taken the time to back all of the letters.  Yes, this did take a while, it was the perfect job for a retreat!  I alternated between Olive and Pink to help the words in the file stand out.

I’ve used the ‘Splendor‘ collection kit from My Minds Eye for this layout, it was the perfect shade of soft olive green in the mood board, teamed with the sweetest shade of pink.  Perfect for my black and white photo and something different for a Christmas theme.

Once my cut file was all backed and positioned on my page, I mounted my photo and added it to my layout.  With such a large and detailed cut file, there wasn’t a lot of other embellishing required.  I didn’t want to distract from all that work I’d done backing those letters.

Sticking to elements within the collection I’ve added a large floral embellishment above my photo and a co-ordinating smaller one to the left of my photo.  I did also pull this sweet little birdhouse from my stash, I love the softwood colour and it’s a house for my little chipboard bird.  I’ve also added in some wood veneer hearts to finish off the page.

Be sure to upload to the Facebook group by the end of the month for your chance to win a prize pack from this months sponsor.
