Make It Merry

Tuesday, December 5, 2017

HELLO and welcome to December!

It's time for a new round of Flavor of the Month kits from The ScrapRoom. Incidentally, it's also my last month working with them. For personal reasons, I have decided to step down from the design least for now. 
Anyway, without further ado, here is the first kit featuring Carta Bella's "A Very Merry Christmas" collection.
This collection reminded me of old greeting cards my grandma had tucked away in a shoe box. Very reminiscent of a time long ago. To be honest, I wasn't sure what direction I was going to go with this particular kit. Placing any "current" photos on this just seemed like it was going to be out of place. But, then I stumbled upon these and the colors seemed I went with it. 

I kept the design pretty simple while still managing to including bits and pieces of nearly every print in the kit. I made a couple of tags and tucked them behind the larger photo. I cut apart a die-cut frame and used it as a border element peeking out from behind my photos (red stripe scallops). The enamel dots were a great way to add a little interest to the layout, along with a few wood stars from my stash. In the end, I really like how it turned out!
