Hi friends, thank you so much for joining me today 💗 I’ve designed today’s layout using this pretty Moodboard by Anke Kramer as my inspiration and drew on the candy canes, mint and pink colours.

I started by making a 1″ frame with  the Jingle Bells paper. Then made a scalloped border with a punch from the Sparkle Bright paper.  I chain stitched all around the frames with silver thread, adding sequins from my stash as I went.  The frame is popped up with 3D foam tape, so I could add things on top and underneath the frame to get a lot of depth and texture.

This pretty photo is of my friends visiting the Suspension Bridge near Vancouver, BC.  You walk high above the forest floor on swinging bridges, eeeek ! So using the Cardstock Kit, I die cut a pile of twigs and leaves using the Die Set from the October kit  to reflect this amazing destination.

In the lower corner, I layered my die cuts with  floral ephemera, candy canes, a sleigh filled with gifts and a large stamp, also from the Chipboard Sticker Pack.

In the upper corner, more die cut leaves, floral ephemera and two of the awesome transparent numbers in gorgeous aqua blue. I spelt out DEC with the Puffy Alpha Stickers that I foiled with the Silver Embossing Powder in the Colour Kit.

After adding a little bit of splatter, I finished my layout by adding tiny Foiled Stars, Ephemera stars and Silver Foiled Chipboard Stars all around along with some tiny sequins from my stash. I used a couple of small pieces of Ephemera for my title, ‘Family, you are our gift’.

I’m excited to see what you create using Anke’s pretty Moodboard ! Be sure to share at our Hip Kit Club Group on Facebook!  See you again soon!
