A goal of my holiday scrapping is to try and use my stash. I broke out some OLD Basic Grey papers (from 2006!) and was determined to use them on my page.
I first cut the cut file from white cardstock. In Silhouette Studio, I worked with the file to cut out the backing for the letters with patterned paper (instead of tracing and backing each letter by hand). I also recut the word "Christmas" from a different colored paper to make it stand out a bit more.
On the page itself, I cut a large circle for the background, distressed and machine stitched around the edges. I layered my photos with a mat and some patterned paper, and fussy cut flowers that I cut from patterned paper.
I also cut some small circles from patterned paper as well, and embellished with enamel dots, puffy stickers, brads, and a few more punched flowers.
Thank you for joining me today!
