Another CREATE Magazine layout - Jillibean Soup

Hi everyone, today I want to share another one of my projects created for January CREATE Magazine. Remember the magazine can be downloaded for free HERE if you haven't already of course.

This layout was made for the "Manufacturer Challenge" and the manufacturer we focused on was Jillibean Soup! Here's what I did:

I really love this Christmas collection "Holly Berry Borscht" by Jillibean Soup! It’s so awesome that a lot of not so Christmassy colors and designs are included in this collection!  Because of this I could easily use it to scrap this “Sinterklaas” (Dutch December 5th celebration) photo of my youngest and his best friend. (why my son always has to look funny in photos beats me ....  I take 50 pics and this is the only "normal" one, sigh)

Supply List: patterned paper, die-cuts, letter stickers, wire word, wooden nickels, file cards, buttons, tag: Jillibean Soup; cardstock: Bazzill Basics; Transparency: Fancy Pants; washi tape: We R Memory Keepers; ribbon, sewing thread: misc.; color mist: Studio Calico; pen: Sharpie; Silhouette Cut File: Kerri Bradford Studio.


LOVE the wire words:

The buttons are from a Jillibean Soup "Mix the Media" package:

Thank you so much for stopping by!! 
Have a fab weekend!
