I’m absolutely loving this holiday season and all of the holiday themed layouts I’ve been seeing on social media! I have a festive layout to share with you today using the Ho Ho Ho Cut File from The Cut Shoppe.
I tend to use a lot of my stash when scrapbooking any holiday themed photos. Mainly because I purchase so much each year but only use it for a month or so before it gets tucked away waiting another year to be used. The pattern papers I use for this layout are from Festivus, a Recollections paper pad I picked up a few years ago.
I enlarged the Ho Ho Ho in Cricut Design Space and backed my photos behind two of the O’s. Before I adhered down the cut file I grabbed my No Yoking Coloringz from Shimmerz Paints and my brayer to apply a light coat of mixed media to the background. I really do struggle with traditional Christmas colors. Red and green isn’t an easy combo for me to use so I thought by bring in a little bit of yellow (which is a color I’m much more comfortable using) that it might help balance the color scheme and allow the design to come together a little easier.
I grabbed multiple Christmas themed embellishments from my stash, including chipboard pieces from the Simple Stories ‘December Documented’ Collection, yellow buttons from My Mind’s Eye ‘Winter Wonderland’ Collection, and a glittery snowflake from Michael’s.
I used a set of small black alpha stickers from my stash to add the “Merry Memories” subtitle. I also added my journaling using my We R Memory Keepers Typecast Typewriter. This layout is all about documenting a fun Christmas themed day our town hosted last year. Santa was there with one of his reindeer and the kids could pick out a book from the library.
I also put together a process video including a Cricut Design Space tutorial.
