Hi friends! Last few weeks have just flown by, crazy that we're already a week into December. I've been meaning to come back here and share sneaks of my December projects but I totally missed that boat.... hopeless! But I'm finally here so lets get this done! December kits are so pretty and I am still loving creating with them (and some of it may be sneaking into my December Stories album too...oops!).
First up here's a layout I created using the Main & Embellishment:
As you can see I went with a grid for this one. Grids are my go-to if I'm stuck on design - they always look good and even though it's a grid, they can look different depending on how you embellish!
I started with the photo on this one and cut the papers to match the size of that. Then I had to play around for ages getting the right title so it would fit in the space haha (title was originally going to be different, something like "I didn't take it" but the spacing was wrong).
Those gold Thickers are just gorgeous! I mean...gold! And I love that they have a mint'ish foam back!
There isn't a great deal of embellishments on this one (shock!!!) - it's one of the plainer layouts I've created recently but with those big pattern paper squares I don't think it looks too bare.
Journaling is typed up on the computer again using a typewriter font. And I added a bit of contrasting stitching to tie in with the black dotty pattern at the top of my page (although to be honest, the black is there because that's what i had in the machine from working on the December Stories album, lol).
That face. It's just the best. This girl cracks me up.
And that's my first layout using the December kits shared! WOHOO! Next up.. Project Life! But I'll share that in a couple days ;)
I hope you are having a magical December; crazy that Christmas is only a few weeks away now (and the kids go on school holidays in a week, AHHHH!). Anyone working on a December album? Mine isn't a daily album, it's more a "whenever I have something worth recording" kind of thing, lol. I've shared a few of my recent pages up on the CTK Facebook Fanpage (and my IG) incase you wanted to see ;)
Thanks so much for stopping by. Take care!! Em xo
