Hello friends! I've got a step-by-step tutorial I created for My Creative Scrapbook I thought I would share it here as well. The Christmas trees are part of the free subscriber December cut file created by Ashley Horton from The Cut Shoppe.
This is the layout I created:
First I unpacked this month's kit, the December Creative Kit. Look how awesome it looks. Don't you jus love those designs, the colors, the die-cuts and those chipboards?! I just love it all!!
Next I installed my Silhouette Cameo and started cutting. I cut five trees in different sizes from various patterned papers and six trees also in different sizes from plain white cardstock. The "25" comes from the same cut file and I cut it in two different sizes from white cardstock as well:
With Distress Oxide stamping ink and a soft brush I colored the trees I cut from the white cardstock:
After coloring they looked pretty fun. I love the festive colors!
Next I cut 1.5 cm off two sides of my white background cardstock and adhered it on a sheet of red cardstock. On top I arranged all the cut trees covering almost the entire page. I didn't need to use any adhesive as the trees were still a bit sticky from the Silhouette sheet:
Using my sewing machine I stitched right through the middle of the trees:
The result looked like this:
Now I had to find a place for my photo, which I decided should be in the bottom left corner of the page. I added a few die-cuts and chipboards on the right side of the photo and placed the "25" cut file on top:
On the left side of the photo I added a really small chipboard and stamped the date (twice):
Above the photo I placed a few die-cuts and a bell chipboard in top of one of the trees:
Last but not least I got out my white paint and added the white paint splatter to the etire page, even on top of my photo to give it the illusion that it snowed. I really love the result!
Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today! I hope I've been able to inspire you a little!
