Happy Holidays crafty friends! I’m sharing a festive Design Team layout made for Paige Taylor Evans today. I’m using the Banner Cut File from Paige’s 25 Days of Christmas Cut Files 2019. You’ll get 25 cut files for just $25 ! That’s a fab deal!
Rather than the typical Christmas collection, I’ve used Paige’s pretty and colourful Splendid collection. It’s so perfect for my Christmas celebrations because I decorate my pink tree with every colour under the rainbow. I love my Christmas decor to be girly-whimsical (new genre, ha).
I cut out the Banner Cut File from white AC Cardstock on my Cameo 3. To surround the banner with lots of colour I fussy cut all the gorgeous flowers from Splendid Paper 1. They’re nestle around the paper-backed poinsettias and I think, still give a sweet holiday vibe. You can tweak up the flower edges to add shape and shadow. I made an offset of the cut file in Silhouette Design Studio and cut it from Splendid Paper 10. To add more pretty texture, I chain stitching all around and made french knots in the centre of the poinsettias.
Instead of paper backing the ribbon, I cut them out of yellow Horizon Paper 1. I think Splendid Paper 5 would be super pretty too, but I didn’t have it on hand. I chain stitched the ribbons too and popped them up with foam tape for even more dimension. I like to create lots of levels of paper on my layouts.
Please ignore the cat hair, LOL! It’s in and on everything here 😁
I made the background with an 11″ square of AC cardstock that’s been bordered with 1″ strips of colourful striped Splendid Paper 3. It ties my whole design together perfectly. Now, have you ever used non-scrapbook product on your layouts? I hadn’t before, but check out these candy baking sprinkles!! When I spotted them at Homesense, I thought they were perfect! I added a strip of 1/4″ Super Tape by Thermoweb along the edge of the striped paper and sprinkled them on. I LOVE it so much, the baubles look like sparkly ornaments 😀 I think they’re super fun !
I ate a few too, ha!
To finish it all off, I added my title with the Thickers Letters from Paige’s Horizon Collection and you can still purchase them, yay! ‘Santa’s Best Day’ for sure, LOL ! This photo is me in grade 11 with my Highschool gang on Santa’s lap. LOL, you can barely see Santa, but my guess is he enjoyed the visit. I added the word ‘ever’ beneath the banner with the Splendid Mini Foam Alpha Thickers. The little blue bird is from the Splendid Die Cut package. I like when a die cut like this looks in the direction of the photo. The little pink faux letter board saying, ‘Warm and Cozy’, was a must! That was Santa that day for sure. I cut it out of Paige’s Garden Shoppe Paper 12.
Would you make a Christmas layouts with non-Christmas collection? That being said, watch for a Paige Taylor Evans Christmas collection with American Crafts next December! I CAN’T wait, it’s going to be EPIC !
From my heart to yours, have a wonderful Christmas!
