Can you believe it’s the middle of December? Where did the year go?! It’s Jen Schow here to share a holiday layout I created with the Whimsical collection. Do you ever create themed layouts without themed products? I found that focusing on color was key.
I started by selecting the red and green papers in the Whimsical collection. I also ran across this blue dot that makes an awesome snowy background for the photo of my daughter catching snowflakes!
I pulled out the blue, green, and red embellishments from the collection and created a title from a die cut and those ever giving small letter Thickers. I added it on top of the photo with some vellum which helps it stand out but still be light and airy.
I added my journaling inside a sticker frame and added my embellishments above and below my photo, keeping things pretty closely clustered so the snowy background could be shown off. By focusing most of the embellishment on the cool colors and just adding a pop of the red, it gives the layout an icy feel, which is perfect!
I added a sticker and the date to the top left of the photo to balance the journaling on the bottom right and called it finished! Here’s another look at the final layout…
Have you challenged yourself to create a holiday layout with a collection that isn’t themed? It’s fun, so you should! *wink, wink*!
