I created this single page layout of my little guy posing in front of last year's tree. The banner I created to house my title was super fun to make, watch for an upcoming tutorial on banners. I also hand cut one of the ornaments on the background paper from a spot that I was going to cover up any how. The hole I created is not visible on the layout, but by doing this I was able to pop up the ornament to add some dimension to my layout. some poke holes for fun and random, brads placement all add to a whimsical look.
This double page layout documenting my husband,Timmy and I cutting down our family's first ever real Christmas tree was a lot of fun to create. I knew I wanted to put a tree on the layout but I wasn't sure which technique I wanted to use, especially with so many great papers to choose from. Then I decided on this rolled tree. It is pretty easy to make, though admittedly a little time consuming and you do en up with sticky fingers (LOL). It was a great project to make while watching television, and would be equally good if you were having a crop with friends. It's simple so you can chat or focus on your favourite show, no problem.. anyway I also wanted to make some of the tree paper a focal point and did so by creating a hand made die cut paper for the right side of my layout which nicely house the title. a fan fold flower and some journaling finish the layout off nicely, leaving the focus mainly on the story in the photos.
Thanks for stopping by to see what I have done with this months kit! There is lots I have to look forward to this month, so hopefully it will be a better blogging month than October.
