Hello Pebbles friends! It’s Monique on the blog today to share my Holly Jolly Christmas layout. When I first saw the new Holly Jolly collection I think I squealed with joy! December (and okay, November too) is my favorite time of the year and I think I can safely say I love all Christmas collections, but this one comes out top of the range! I love everthing about it: the papers, the die-cuts, the tags, the stickers and the ornaments and above all I love that this Xmas collection has pink and blue in it’s color range!
Here’s the layout I created for today:
When I first opened the Holly Jolly collection the packet with ornaments immediately drew my attention and I decided I was going to make those ornaments the starting point on my page. Let me show you step-by-step how I created this layout:
1: I gathered everything I wanted to use: papers, embellishments, three 2.5″ x 2.5″ photos (not counting the white edges):
2: The ornaments consist of two parts, but I only needed one part so I cut those loose:
3: I chose the “Oh Deer” patterned paper to use for my background, cut off approx. 3.5 cm at the top (leaving the landing strip in place!) and 1.5 cm at the right side and adhered this on a sheet of white cardstock. I cut off a matching landing strip from another sheet of “Oh Deer” paper and adhered this on the opposite side. Next I arranged my six ornaments (with little twine bows attached) on my layout in the shape of a Christmas tree:
4: The ornaments have their own adhesive so I peeled off the backing:
5: I adhered the ornaments on my page and looked for the best place to adhere my photos:
7: I really love how quickly this page came together.
8: After writing down the date and doing a bit of machine stitching here and there my layout was finished!
Here’re a few close-ups:
