Hey scrappers! Nicole here today to share a layout I created using the Holiday Hustle collection. I know, Christmas is over, but I am still feeling festive and want to get those memories put to paper!
I started this page with a whole heck of a lot of circles! Last week, I shared some cards that I created with the leftovers from this project to give you some ideas of what you can do with all those extras laying around after a project like this one. I punched many circles from the Holiday Hustle 6×6 paper pad, along with some red foil paper too in varying sizes. I laid the circles in a border shape around my page and then stitched them down with my sewing machine.
I added a diecut “bow” to the top of my photo gift box for a splash of sparkle to my project. All that was left to do was add in a cute title and a few stamps and diecut ephemera pieces to my project.
Do you have lots of winter or Christmas photos to document? I have to tell you, we went to the Santa Parade last year and it was one of the warmest days of the year. That is not typical for New England! So, if I can document warm winter activities, so can you. The best collection to use is the Holly Hustle line, right here, from Fancy Pants. It has all the blacks that I LOVE in a collection. With touches of tradition colors.
I layered papers, brag cards and ephemera to get the look I desired. I then added a tiny button to the center of the store front!
I felt like adding a city scape to the top left worked too. Since Santa was parading all through our town on firetruck.
Hope you are inspired to create!
Good morning Fancy Pants Designs fans! Do you need some last minute holiday card ideas? I have a couple cards to share today using leftovers from an upcoming project using the Holiday Hustle collection (stay tuned) that I was able to put to good use for a few last minute cards that I needed for this holiday season.
See a theme? Circles. Love me some circles and a trusty circle punch will take you far! I punched several circles for another project and has too many left over to toss. So, why not build some simple patterns on some cards right? I started with the tree shape, moving different sized circles around until I got the tree shape just right, adding in some holiday required sparkle to any gaps in the design.
I finished this one off quickly with a JOY stamped tree stump from the Merry & Bright collection. These stamps are so perfect to add a little holiday greeting!
Next, I still had more punched circles left over – so I created this card with a confetti like feel for the circles this time.
Again, I added in a stamped sentiment and more bling – a requirement for holiday cards, don’t you think!
