Hey everyone! Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a fabulous weekend! I actually got a chance to play on some personal items today in the studio. I have been waiting to scrap this picture of Charlie for quite awhile and thought today was the perfect day.
Here are the measurements for my layout:
- Base 12″ x 12″ In Good Taste Specialty DSP
- Sweet Stockings DSP cut at 4″ x 12″
- Early Espresso photo mat cut at 4 1/4″ x 6 1/4″
This picture was taken a few years ago right after Charlie saw the movie Home Alone. He fell in love with the movie! Just like his Nana, mommy and aunts! lol And just like us, he can watch the movie over and over again. That’s our boy!! lol
So I started with a piece of the In Good Taste woodgrain DSP. I LOVE that set of paper!!! I thought it was the perfect backdrop for the picture. I then pulled out the Sweet Stockings pack of DSP and found the scrap with all the Christmas lights. Perfect! It made me think of the scene with Kevin decorating his little tree. To bring out the woodgrain, I went with a piece of Early Espresso for the photo mat. I attached it all with some Stampin’ Seal+ adhesive. I used my Cricut Joy to cut my title, in Early Espresso, so that I could have a bigger title, which I attached with Liquid Glue. Next I die cut the stocking from the DSP with the coordinating dies and fussy cut both the dog and cat from the paper too. I tried to give the effect that the stocking was hanging from the e in the title by trimming the loop. I stamped the Santa hat in Memento ink and colored it with my Cherry Cobbler Blends markers and die cut it. I then added both images with dimensionals. For my journaling tag, I die cut one of the tags from the Tailor Made Tags die set. The holly is die cut from scraps of Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler cardstocks and attached with more Liquid Glue. There’s some Wink of Stella on the berries too to give them some shimmer. And last, but not least, I had to add some rhinestones to give the Christmas lights some bling. I really like how the whole thing came together! What do you think?
I hope you have had a chance to get play today. That’s what’s Sundays are all about! Have a great rest of your afternoon!
