Today’s post features an amazing layout by Paige Evans! Wait until you see the fun texture element Paige added! And, if you look closely, you’ll see some sneak peeks of our December cut files and printables that will be available on December 10th! Here’s how Paige says this layout came together:

Merry-Christmas-by-Paige-Evans1. Trim 1″ strips of Joyful patterned papers and roll them into tubes.

2. Trace a tree from the December printables (I added a small trunk) and cut it from white cardstock.

3. Stitch around the tree using white thread.

5. Trim the tubes to cover the entire sticky tree then adhere the negative tree background cardstock on top.

6. Embellish the tree with wood veneer shapes and stickers like ornaments.

7. Layer a photo onto journaling cards and die cuts on the right side of the layout.

8. Cut the “fa la la la la” banners from white cardstock, adhere the pieces across the top right corner, and journal above the banners.

9. Place “2014” stickers at the end of the journaling to finish.
