Be Merry and Smile by Jo Simons


Hey lovelies!
I'm back today to share a Christmas layout using the stunning new Christmas Emporium papers from Couture Creations.

These beautiful papers were just screaming at me to be fussy cut  and I love the end result.  With just a few simple papers and a doily or two of course, you have a great layout with maximum impact.

Here's how I created this page.

First I made a simple paper cluster and adhered it to my base page.

I then went to work picking out  my embellishments.  I used some gold mirror card to cut two doilys.  This doily is called Rowena and its from the beautiful Amaryllis ornamental lace dies collection.  I love how the gold card gives it a really sparkle and shine.  Using my hearts nesting dies I also cut two of the smallest heart using cork paper.  Another favourite paper to use at the moment.  Now its time to sit in front of the telly and fussy cut away!

Then I started to layer all my papers and embellies.
Some I have stuck flat to the page and some I have used the 3D foam strips  These strips are perfect for this intricate cutting. I then hand stitched around all my pretty papers.
Here below is a couple of close ups of my page

I have used a simple word for my title.  This is the Smile die from the Everyday Essentials collection.

Thanks so much for stopping by and a happy Christmas in July to you all!

Until next time
