Hi there friends. Have you been enjoying the amazing November kits? Kimberly and Kim have really excelled themselves with all the lovely designs and gorgeous patterns. Today, I have a new layout to share with you using the ‘B’ sides of the papers.
When I first looked through the papers for the challenge, I wasn’t sure which were the B sides – do you remember ‘Double-A side records’? Well that is exactly my thoughts on the papers. So I have chosen the side with smaller patterns and the patterned strip at the bottom.
I do love a little pocket for hidden journaling or ephemera. I created a fairly simple ‘envelope pocket’ which I have fastened with buttons and string closure. This template will give you a good idea of how to create one of your own:
The design is easily adapted to suit your own needs. Just remember to sew on the buttons before sticking down the sides. Alternatively you could use a magnetic or velcro closure instead.
For the rest of the layout, I’ve used those gorgeous B sides of the papers and stitched around the edges for added detail. I tucked in one of the chipboard frames from the Main November kit over a handmade tag before adding on a puffy sticker. Those gorgeous wood veneer cookies (also from the main kit) are so delightful! I added a little puffy dot sticker to the centre of this one.
To balance out the colours, I used the black and white striped paper to make a banner – I love the contrast with the red and mint. You can see I topped off the banner with some of the beautiful flower die-cuts, leaves and acetate elements. Don’t they look amazing?!
Finally, the title is a mixture of the puffy stickers from Embellishment Kit together with the Chipboard title from the November Main kit.
I hope that you love the B sides as much as I do and perhaps try out a pocket for one of your pages.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I will take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Let’s hope that 2021 brings us a brighter outlook!
