Merry and Bright Scrapbook Layout

Greetings and welcome to the SEI Blog, it's Rhonda Van Ginkel to share my first project featuring the Merry Mistletoe collection of pattern papers, die cut pack and stickers.

I thought it would be fun to create a page featuring our family photo for 2015. Even though the photo isn't perfect, I like that it's more of a casual shot taken when we were out goofing off at a park.

• Once my photo was matted, I selected my background paper and layers.
• I stitched the red 10.5" square using my sewing machine.
• Next I added a bit of modeling paste using a stencil with crack shapes for a bit of subtle texture.
• Once dry, I used a scrap piece of 6" diameter circle corrugate that I had, trimmed it and tore the paper a bit and inked with a touch of Iced Spruce distress ink.
• The corrugate was attached to my page by stitching it, then I stitched around the outside of it to frame the shape a bit.
• A 3.5" x 5.5" piece of cheesecloth was trimmed to layer on top of the corrugate.
• I die cut a few banners using my die cut machine and a border and notebook paper element which are layered under the photo.
• Layered the vertical strip and attached, stapled a few staples at the top.
• The banner pieces were layered with the border below and notebook paper.
• Photo was adhered using foam dimensional adhesive.
• Reindeer, With Love Tag and Red Bird elements from the Merry Mistletoe Die Cut Pack were tucked in. Mr. Reindeer has his eyes accented with Glossy Accents, a sticker on his nose, topped with a touch of glitter glue. The With Love Tag was accented with glitter glue around the border also.
• Final touches are the snowflake stickers tucked in and the branch sticker layered under the bird.
• I cut the "Merry & Bright" title using the Under Mistletoe paper and my Silhouette Cameo. I used one of the stickers to dot the "i" in the title.
