So Cute & Cozy

Because nothing says Christmas like a scrapbook page about socks. Hey, they are warm, cozy, and adorable socks. :)

So Cute & Cozy

Let’s talk about the layout.

  • I use a lot of Messy Box supplies on this layout. I love their designs even if their kits didn’t seem to coordinate all that well. I’ve got a bunch still left to use, but this layout made a small dent in my cards.
  • Here’s the layout that inspired my design.
  • The title was originally “So cozy,” but the top of the page needed more visual weight to counter-balance the bottom. So I added the gold part of the title as well. Which led me to add a gold doily and gold phrase stickers to maintain continuity.

Feel free to check out the process video!

I’m working on more holiday layouts; I’ll post¬†again soon. Until then, take care.

So Lovely

My first Christmas layout of the year! Well, sort of.

So Lovely (700x672)

Let’s talk about the layout.

  • I had a totally different background going on with this page. I thought it looked too busy, though, so I switched it out for a new one. I used texture paste on both backgrounds but I used white on white for the second one, and I think that kept things from being too overwhelming.
  • Even though I am posting this layout now, I created this page last December. When I pulled it out to do the process video, I decided it wasn’t quite finished, so I added the phrase stickers and other stickers. I added the date as well.
  • The soft colors of this layout make me smile. I like traditional red/green Christmas layouts but non-conventional colors are fun too.

If you want to see how this layout evolved, check out my process video.

Be back soon with another layout. Until next time. :)

I scrapbooked this pic a few months ago. I figured since it was about time for the second annual Victoria Marie retreat, I needed to scrapbook this photo from the first one.


Let’s talk about the layout.

  • I struggled at first about where to put the journaling. The striped pattern paper was a simple solution.
  • I auditioned a few doilies before I chose this one. Another one I tried was just too big.
  • I created the hearts with a template and texture paste.

Here’s the process video.

Hope you enjoy. Until next time. :)
