Project - holiday theme: the night before Christmas



I do the same thing...I'm always the last one up, and it's so fun to get this same annual photo with the different gifts each year. Beautiful layout.

Love your layout!

so cute!

I have a similar svg file awaiting use by my Silhouette, and this layout is giving me some great inspiration! I really love the white/off white subtle tone on tone combo. Beautiful and elegant!

Beautiful page.

Project - holiday theme: the night before Christmas

I always try to remember to take a picture of our tree before we go to bed on Christmas Eve. To me, the warm glow of the tree lights late at night is the most magical image! I usually don't scrap one photo on a 12x12 layout, but this one felt like it deserved it's very own page - so I did it!

Here are just a few of the details I am loving about this layout:
* I used my silhouette to cut the background - I am so excited to start seeing so many fun digital cutting files in the Two Peas store!!
* I love the subtle details of white against off-white or cream. The shaped background was cut from solid white cardstock, but I used an off-white paper for the background.
* Die-cut backgrounds like this look great just as they are, but filling some of the openings with pops of color makes it completely unique! I used coordinating patterned papers to fill in behind some of the shapes.
* This type of background is also a great way to use lots of fun decorative brads without it looking super redundant or bulky.
* I used an embossing folder to add just a touch of texture to the tag that's tucked underneath the photo - aren't those swirls perfect for this dreamy-looking photo?
* And of course, I had to add some machine stitching with coordinating thread - simply because I love the handmade touch it adds!

Thanks so much for reading through all of my little details - and may your Christmas Eve be as magical as you can imagine it to be! :)
