I enlarged the Ho Ho Ho Cut File to 11.5" in Cricut Design Space. I wanted the cut file to be the main focal point on the layout and I also wanted to use the cut file to show off my photos. I trimmed out the top and bottom stars in the center of the O's and backed those areas with my photos.
Traditional Christmas colors are a struggle for me. Reds & greens just are not my "go to" color combination but it is unavoidable this time of year! I thought by incorporating a color I'm a little more familiar with (and happy to use) that it would help balance out the color scheme and also help the design come together a little easier. So I used my brayer and a Shimmerz mist to add a splash of yellow to the background paper.
A majority of the products I use on this layout are products from my stash. I find that I tend to use a lot of stash product for ANY holiday themed layout. Probably because I purchase so much of it but only use it for a month or so before it gets tucked away for another year!!
I've put together a process video with a Cricut Design Space tutorial showing you how this layout came together!
