Welcome to the October SOTM Blog Hop! This month we are featuring Twinkle, a set of 15 cheerful holiday images. You may be arriving here from NANCY'S BLOG. You'll find over 40 consultants sharing festive Twinkle creations this month!
This month I decided to make a layout inspired by this layout. I used the new White Pines papers from the Holiday Expressions book. I used heavily sanded Cashmere cardstock for the layout base. then I added 3x3 squares of the pretty White Pines papers along with some matted 3x3 photos from a holiday shoot we did a few years ago. I stamped on a couple of the holiday light wire image, bending the image to fit the areas I needed it to wrap around. I stamped and fussy cut some of the light bulb and ornament images, detailing each image with a shimmer gel pen. I stamped the small star image as a border along the bottom of the paper squares.
For this frame I stamped the image twice, then assembled the fussy cut layers. I added the believe sentiment and added the JUST using Jennifer's Hand. I added a few bits of chipboard and clear acrylic goodies from the White Pines Complements - I love all the different materials included in those packets! I used the red enamel gems to accent my embellishment clusters. As a final touch I outlined all the B&T squares using the same pen I used for the journaling.
