First of all "MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!"
Hope y'all have a wonderful time with family and friends!!
For this first layout (which was up on the PLS blog last Monday) I found my inspiration on Pinterest. When I have 5 minutes to spare I often browse through all the wonderful pins on Pinterest and when I saw this one by “Manu” (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/230668812139993475/) I knew immediately what I wanted to do.
And some close-ups of course:
I started my Christmas tree with these Pretty Little Studio Santa stickers and simply adhered them to my page row by row. To make sure they would be in a straight line I adhered them to my ruler first and then stuck them down.
For the finishing touch I added the star sticker, the flair, die-cut and word. Next I proceeded building my page, starting with the photo and the layers beneath it (love the vellum!), then the little banner, the word flags, the paint splatter, the hearts and stars stickers and the wood veneers.
And I really love this charm! Can't remember who it's from, the twine is from The Twinery.
I finished my page off with some machine stitching. Without the stitching my projects never feel “finished”. And that’s it, hope you like it!
PLS Products Used:
- Nature Walk Collection: Patter Paper (Mint Stripe)
- Holiday Cheer Collection: Paper Ribbons, Vellum (stars), Pattern Paper (red stripe, blue snow, Christmasvillage), Tree Die-cut
- Christmas at Home Collection: Santa Stickers (hexegon), Word Stickers, Document Christmas Word Flags
- Woodland Christmas Collection: Flair (magical)
And my second Pretty Little Studio Christmas page was created for the "Polaroid Feature" of December 19th and has a also a Xmas tree shape in it:
I was so happy I got this assignment as I adore all the polaroid cards!! For my page I used the “Christmas Cheer Polaroid Frames” from the new “Santa Claus” collection and an older one from my “Christmas at Home” stash. There are so many fun polaroids to choose from that I had a hard time limiting myself to only 3! In order to use more than one polaroid card I came up with this “Christmas Tree” design for my layout, so that I could use multiple cards! What I find a huge advantage of these cards is that all the word flags fit perfectly in the white space! I used my Tiny Attacher to fasten the word flags to achieve a bit of a playful look.
The digital die-cuts: "Christmas", "HoHoHo" and the star in the circle are all from 17turtles!
And how cute is this flair button?!!
Love this cute polaroid:
For this page I used a lot of PLS goodies from these four collections: Christmas at Home, Woodland Christmas, Holiday Cheer and Marigold.
Okay this is enough for today, going back to the Christmas festivities!
Wishing you a fabulous Christmas once again! Hope to see you back soon!
