Coco Vanilla Studio Tis the Season - Merry & Bright layout and Project Life:

Happy Monday everyone!

I admire those who do weekly project life albums, there is a lot of commitment involved! I do a monthly album (year in review album) so with my left overs I have created some project life cards for December. I have approached each 6x4 inch card as a 'page' to embellish and created some to add journalling (which is one of the feature concepts I like about PL). I have added bows, wood veneers, 2Crafty chipboard (snowflake and word sentiment 'Merry Christmas'),  enamel dots, die cuts and stickers. I have foamed taped a significant amount to create a 3D effect. Splashes of colour shine and inking chipboard have been added for visual impact. And for card makers this collection is just perfect!

Here are a few close ups of individual cards.

Here is another Christmas layout using this lovely collection. I do love the pastel colours! I found this photo of my boy stacked high with presents and this created the theme of my layout. I coloured the 2Crafty chipboard frame with Versa ink. The chipboard framing of the smaller photo ensures it remains the focus of the layout. The bow, flairs and wood veneer heart add texture and a 3D effect. 

This collection is so versatile and would suit project lifers, traditional scrapbookers and card makers alike! 

Happy scrapping everyone x
