Merry Christmas, friends!! Can you believe the day is finally here? I hope this post finds you full of comfort and joy this holiday season!

Today, I’m going to share with you another 2016 layout for my Project Life album. A couple of things to note:

1. The early darkness has taken its toll on my photos, so I did the only thing I knew to save the… change them to black and white.

2. I was challenged today to use punches! Now, in full disclosure (because its Christmas of course), I don’t own a lot of punches. To me, they take up too much room for such a single use item. So, I took some creative liberties and used dies instead…but you could of course achieve the same result using punches!


On to the layout! Using a 3″ circle die, I cut a circle from the card stock add-on kit to add as my weekly title card. For some extra pizzazz, I created a shaker card using the confetti from the December Documented kit. I adore how this turned out. 2016-12-25-hkc-jessicacole-02

To create a visual triangle, I used that same die and cut out the pictures of my dogs so I had two 3″ circle photos of them right below the title. I adhered them onto the cards in the kit and added some word phrase stickers stapled on for extra effect.


For some extra embellishment, I pulled the simple tree card and decorated it with the puffy stickers from the kit and a washi star at the top. I finished the card off with a couple washi strips and another phrase sticker.


Finally, I chose to keep the last card  simple by just adhering a die cut from the Scrapbook it and keeping the photo as is.


That’s it! I hope you enjoyed this festive layout and you’ll give punches (or dies) a go this week in your spreads.

From the bottom of my heart, I wish you and your family a safe and happy holiday season!
