I love to create large titles on my layouts, so I used Holly Jolly Holiday on the layout I'm sharing today. I cut the title from White cardstock and layered strips of patterned paper from my Tinsel Town collection with Pretty Little Studio, behind the negative space.
I also used the off set function in Silhouette Studio to create an outline of the title. Then I used the Silhouette Sketch Pens to draw around the die cut words. I used a mix of Embroidery Floss colors that coordinated with the Tinsel Town collection to stitch around the words.
I thought the title of this layout paired well, with the funny photo of our daughter. This pose was her idea, and I love the surprised look on her face at the elf that has fallen over in the "snow". I added a few of the Tinsel Town embellishments on each side of the photo to balance out the large title at the top of the layout.
I finished with a bit more embellishing layered over the title, just to add some extra texture to the layout.
