It’s the final day of Wrap it Up Week, and design team member Kim Chaffin is finishing off this week of inspiration with a simple and magical layout! Kim’s project just shows how you can emphasize a gorgeous photo with just the right touches of products from our Document December 2021 Kit and add-ons. Let’s take a look!
Hello, friends, it’s Kim, and I am so excited to be here with you for Wrap It Up Week! I have been in the holiday mood since August, and I’ve been working on plans to get my 2014 holiday season, which I’ve just never gotten finished, into an album before December 2021 rolls around. I’m using the Document December 2021 Kit and add-ons to make this happen. Let’s take a look at my first 2014 holiday layout which is finally ready for an album!
As I often love to do, I printed a large 12 x 12 inch photo for my background. I’m a photographer, and in 2014, I offered mini-sessions in which a reindeer was photoshopped into the image. Of course, my daughter wanted a reindeer portrait, too! I chose to tell that story on a 3 inch wide strip of white cardstock, adhering a beautiful pink pocket tag from the Document December 2021 Kit at the bottom of my journaling strip.
This photo has pink in my daughter’s hair accessory, and I knew that the Holiday Magic Gold Puffy Stickers would go beautifully with the pink to accent this special photo. I used those stickers for my title, to add a banner at the bottom of the pocket tags, and to scatter some sparkly stars and hearts throughout the layout.
I love to include the date on layouts because as time goes by, it can be easy to forget. I stamped the date onto a pink banner die cut from the Document December 2021 Kit.
As I looked at the layout, I felt it needed just a little something more, and the Chipboard Tree Stickers were just the thing! I chose two white trees to coordinate with the photoshopped snow in the photo. I used them as an anchor for the date banner in the bottom left corner.
I love the feeling of getting a past project done, and I hope you’ll follow along with me as I continue to work on documenting my 2014 December. I’d love to see the past holiday projects you are wrapping up!
