Joy To The World 12x12 collection. I decided to do a layout and a Trifold Folio that will hold my Holiday memories from this season. There are 2 color versions in this collection. The blues I used for the folio, and for the layout, I chose the more traditional Christmas colors, except I added a vintage touch by using Distress ink in Vintage Photo. I hope you enjoy this post as much as I enjoyed creating for Lemon Craft. The layout features my twin grandchildrens trip to see Santa last week. The background paper is 06, and I mounted it on some distressed corrugated cardboard. I distressed the edges and machine sewed around the perimeter with red thread.
I used 2 different Sizzix dies to create the frames. I also used 2 different patterned papers for the layers. The papers I used are 03 and 04. I absolutely adore the wood pattern! I love all of the cutouts on the 02 and 05 paper. I had a few sheets of the papers and decided to fussy cut all of the poinsettia flowers and create some layered dimensional flowers for the layout. I fussy cut everything out of the paper. I used the cookies and stars and pine branches. Once they were all cut out, I chose a few to tuck around the photos and flowers. I rubbed them all with some Mod Podge then sprinkled them with Rajni Chawla's Crystal Clear. I wish you could see the gorgeous sparkle. They look like real tiny sugar cookies!!
Here is a closeup of the flower cluster and leaves. The larger leaves are from 49 and Market, then i layered them with the pine branches I fussy cut from the 02 paper.
For the middles of the flowers I used Prills, in beautiful Autumn colors that matched the flowers perfectly. Once the flowers were layered and assembled, I ducted them with the Crystal Clear to make them sparkle. I really love the way they came out.
I fussy cut out the mug and also used some Crystal Clear on it. It gave it a beautiful frosted look.
I placed the frosted stars all around the layout. It simply gave it a finishing touch. Twinkling stars all around. Simply magical. Just like the season.
This is the Trifold Folio I created using the blues in the collection. I added a lot of Vintage Photo inking to give the Folio an old world vintage feeling. I think the images on the papers are vintage looking and I wanted to portray that nostalgic feeling. The Folio is closed by a belly band.
This is the backside. I fussy cut the rocking horse and adhered it to the back panel.
I had fun created the belly band for the closure. Once again, I layered the fussy cut flowers, created the middle of the flowers with Prills, and added sparkle with Rajni Chawla's Crystal Clear. I tucked in some 49 and Market laser cut leaves. In between I tucked in stars and die cut snowflakes, then added golden rhinestones for sparkle. It just slips over the Folio beautifully.
Each card is removed from the pockets of the Folio. Each card can hold more photos of journaling.
Each card was covered with the tags in the 04 paper. I created small title spots under each tag.
In back of each waterfall layer I created Sizzix die cut frames to add photos.
I want to thank you for joining me today. And thank you so much to LemonCraft for having me as a Guest Designer for November and December. I have enjoyed creating my projects with their gorgeous papers. I want to wish everyone a beautiful happy Holiday season. I cant wait to see what the Lemoncraft Designers will create in 2020.
