Hi friends, thank you so much for joining me today đź’— 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!
