Hello my scrappy friends and welcome to my blog today. Though I have not been as affluent at posting here as I had hoped here I am lol I’m here today to share that I have a brand new series on my YT channel called “Layouts Rejuvenated”
If you click on the video below you will see exactly what my plan is for this series and a little later today I will have my very first “real” share up on my channel!
In the mean time here is a layout that I had started at a retreat AGES ago but I just wasn’t loving the back ground which started as this
I was lucky enough that I had a second sheet of this same pattern paper and started all over again and much prefer the second version!
I kept my title and photo layers exactly as I had them in the first version. I really, really love this cut file from CUT to YOU and love it cut on this pretty wood grain paper.
I have added in a little pocket behind my photo for a journalling tag to tell my story which reads as follows:
“One of my most favourite things about Christmas is the GIVING. I so hope that I can pass on my joy of giving to the boys. This starts as encouraging them to buy for each other. This year Mum and I took the boys shopping and each took a child, with the others list their heads and got them to pick out a gift for each other. They both chose something the other had asked for and were both so very excited to gift each other. For ease we chose to pay the lovely volunteers to wrap their gifts. The funniest thing about it all though was they BOTH the boys chose the EXACT same paper and plastic bows to go on the gifts. Both boys were so excited to get home and put their gifts under the tree and I can’t wait to see what they do on Christmas morning.”
For embellishment on the page I have dived into my Christmas stash and used from all different places but also used lots of stickers and that gorgeous bow from a Kikki K “Paper Lover’s Book” and I am so so happy with this page! Here’s a couple of close ups
Here’s a peek at the layout I’m sharing over on my YT channel a little later today.
This is the “before” page so make sure you come back to check out the “after” page 😉
