The kit itself isn't overtly Christmas-y; aside from the patterned paper with scripted holiday-related words and some of the embellishments, most of the items could be used for scrapbooking non-Christmas topics. This was a relief for me - I'm a little tired of working with Christmas photos and stories and wasn't planning to scrap any more of those. Or so I thought - you know what they say about best laid plans...
|Felicity Jane "Cozy" Kit|
I placed my embellishment clusters at the top left and bottom right to give my page a diagonal design. Everything on the layout is from the kit contents, except for the white cardstock matting my photos and the white crochet thread on the tags.
Much to my surprise, my remaining kit layouts are all Christmas themed (remember those best laid plans?).
Last year, I took lots of photos of the Christmas decor around our house, intending to make a layout about the details of the holiday. I printed the photos and then promptly forgot about them. When I saw the "December" cut-apart card, I remembered the photos and decided to finally get that scrapbook page made.
I started with my own white cardstock, arranged all my small square photos into a large grid and added some thin red polka dot washi top to the borders of the grid. I placed strips of the script and diagonal red stripe paper at the bottom and top of the page, and then added the "December" card that I trimmed into a banner shape. I sewed seqins into a small circular shaker pocket and added a little red bow at the top. Again, I didn't really need much journaling on the page - I really just wanted to showcase those little photos.
I made three more layouts from the kit - I'll share those in my next post.
