Family Forever and Always
with Simple Stories Holly Jolly
by Fiona Johnstone


Today I show how you can use up that Christmas scrapbook paper to create a
 non Christmassy layout.
 I have used Simple Stories Holly Jolly to create this family page of my kids and their cousins:

Family Forever & Always
Always check those B sides of the patterned paper, especially themed papers as you will see they are very often plain prints like stripes, spots and florals. There is a tiny bit of holly berries on this floral but the bigger flowers dominate the paper. 

I then use non Christmas themed embellishments - I grabbed some blue flowers to tie in the small amount of blue in the patterned papers - on the spot and stripe paper, then some wood veneers before finishing off with a 2Crafty chipboard title.
I've inked my title with Burgundy ink to match my paper, then finished off the page with some burgundy enamel dots. 
Thanks for stopping by
