Hello! Grace here with another Christmassy scrapbook layout. I’ve seen so many layouts out there on YouTube and Instagram that have a Christmas tree shape as the main element on their page, but it’s usually a cut file – which, personally, I can’t always be bothered to do that, and also, not everyone has access to an electronic cutting machine. So, I wanted to create something with that shape but that was also really, really easy to make.
So I used the ‘Most Wonderful Time of the Year’ paper from Prima ‘Christmas in the Country’, and cut it into five strips. I then cut those strips into five different lengths to make the basic pyramid style tree shape.
I went round the edges of all the strips with Distress Oxide in Candied Apple, and after sticking them down in overlapping layers, went around the whole shape with my sewing machine. But before that, I added a light bit of gold stencilling and some gold splatters to the background so they’d poke out from behind the shape.
After backing my photos with woodgrain patterned, and then glitter card, and adhering them with foam so they’d stand out, very little embellishing was needed.
I simply added a few Prima flowers, ephemera piece, and a Hobbilicious wooden star at the top of the tree.
Lastly I added some Prima Say it in Crystals, and some Nuvo Drops, and the layout was complete! If you’d like to see the full process you can watch the video here.
