Merry & Bright

Sharing another holiday layout that I completed this winter.

This layout is based on One-Page Sketch #16 found at Sketch Support.  When I saw this sketch I immediately knew I’d do it because I had this great holiday paper with many beautiful ornaments.

I rarely do one page layouts so knew I’d turn this sketch into a two page spread.  This was an easy sketch to expand to two-pages.  I love that this layout offers the use of so MANY photos (I’ve used 19 in my layout)!  Also, I like to have a photo of our tree in at least one layout each holiday and this layout offers the vertical 4×6 to showcase a tall tree photo. 

I tried the We R Memory Keepers sewing tool for the first time.  It was fairly easy but did take me a few tries to get the hang of it.  I think I’ll get better each time used to how hard I need to push to make the holes. 

I raised the cardstock ornaments up with pop dots adding some dimension.

Variations:

  • Moved the large solid (green pattern paper) close to the center edge of the layout so that it would be continuous onto the second page.  It didn’t work as well with so many photos for there to be the white space. 
  • Added a third row of photos to be able to get more of the many photos taken on this day.  (19 total here)
