Happy Monday! Hope you had a lovely weekend and enjoying the first day of October. Today, Cindy Liebel, Patricia Roebuck & Stacey Michaud are here to kick off this weeks inspiration showcasing Lily Bee's newest holiday collection, Christmas Cheer.
Patricia is first up to share, in her own words, the details of her beautiful layout. The added blue to this collection gives such a beautiful wintery touch to the traditional red and green. When I see this collection, I also think vintage and classic.
The polka dots, chevrons, all lovely patterns. I cut out a background with my die cutting machine but cut it down and layered it with more strips of pattern paper leading from the edge to the photos.
The photo of my daughter looking up is the focus, and how I named the layout “Christmas Innocence.” It is what I saw in her face.
I layered more papers, a journaling card, some fussy cutting of the numbers and Santa around the main photo and created a vignette for the other two photos. From the stamp set collection, I stamped the rows of dots and the banners, then embossed them in silver to add to the wintery look.
Let's see what Stacey has to tell us about her lovely layout. I love the new fashion trend of monochromatic colors paired with bold accessories in vibrant colors.
I took the same approach on this page by first sticking with different patterns of blues. I added the bold red pattern that I hand cut from the Mrs. Claus sheet of paper. A little goes a long way and I like how the red leads the eye across the layout.
I cut the number 25 from the Reindeer Games paper and gave it dimension with pop dots!
Lastly, Cindy created a super cute paper wreath with various layers of poinsettia's, using reds, greens and blues pattern papers. This is a fun way to mix the different patterns to add a little depth.
The white poinsettias are used as accents to break up the layers of colors. Each poinsettia has three layers of the same pattern, keeping with the tone-on-tone affect. She also used same color brads in center of each flower.
Then she added green accent leaves and layered them with a small poinsettia embellished with sticker, stamped banner and jewels for a little pop.
The Christmas Cheer collection is absolutely beautiful and fun to create your favorite holiday projects with. Hope you were inspired by the awesome creations. Be sure to stop by tomorrow for more Christmas Cheer inspirations.
