I love decorating my scrapbook pages with banners, but I also love to decorate around my home with banners as well. The Sugarplum Collection has so many beautiful pastel colors that can be used for Christmas, but lots of other occasions as well.
So what happens when you combine the awesome Mix & Match papers with the adorable Sugarplum Collection and Holly Border Punch? Well, more adorable awesomeness, of course! Just in case any of you are craving a little traditional red and green or jewel tones this Holiday Season, I’ve added little pops of those colors from the Mix & Match paper packs. The Holly Border Punch brings it all together and gives the borders a festive feel.
I love everything about the Christmas season; my family traditions, making new traditions with friends, red and green decorations, blue and silver decorations…you name it and if it’s Christmas, I’m in. One thing that is tradition in my area (maybe everywhere else too?) is living/singing Christmas trees. Choral groups in Christmas tree formation with beautiful poinsettias in front of them. It so happens I just received my poinsettia punch! So inspired by the singing poinsettia Christmas tree, I tried to recreate that on my layout! Here’s to traditions old and new….no matter how you celebrate with your family and friends…take pictures and preserve those memories!
The new Sugarplum collection is so whimsical and cheerful, it has me smiling today! Guess you could say I’ve got visions of Sugarplums dancing in my head. Time to play with these fun papers and adorable stickers and create some holiday borders!
The borders I’ve made will look great either added to the beautiful Sugarplum Fast2Fab pre-designed album pages or any other layout you have in mind. I’ve added a matching title or journal box to add to a double page spread, or they can be adapted to make a card.
I LOVE me a few mats from any variety mat pack, but especially this one. The soft gorgeous colors of Sugarplum work fabulous for a simple 12″ x 12″ layout, not just the slide-in pages. I used a total of 7 mats on this layout. A few of which I cut off, and can be used on future layouts. Just play around with them to decide which orientation you might want them, and how many photos you might have to add to your layout.
Hello creators! I am back with a birthday layout I created using the Sugarplum Designer Paper Pack, Designer Stickers, Variety Mat Pack, and Embellishments. Every year, no matter how old I get, my mommy makes me a birthday cake. Sometimes, we don’t get to celebrate my birthday with the family until the end of September, but that’s OK! I don’t know many people who would decline two birthday celebrations in one year. Do you? :)
Since Edward was a year old, he’s been helping me blow my birthday candles out. Mom has taken a picture of the two of us blowing out my birthday candles together for the past 7 years. I love this tradition… This year, Edward was really excited because he helped make the cake and he requested Oreos and pink sprinkles to decorate the cake with exactly 39 miniature Oreos.
Visions of Sugarplums danced through my head!
Sometimes I overthink projects. I decided to keep it simple this time. These two cards are so easy and quick, you can make them in a jiffy.
Have you used vellum on a layout?
I love how it softens the layout, and gives it a frosted look.
I had some older photos that this frosted vellum was the perfect match for.
You can add the vellum as mats or even as a larger piece to soften the whole layout.
