And speaking of hops, we're back in business doing another Scrapping Our Stash blog hop. You should have arrived here from Jennifer's blog. She's got some lovely work to share using Basic Grey! Today I will share a layout using some of my Simple Stories Cozy Christmas stash (released last summer) using sketch 97 from the My Scraps & More sketch blog. Take a look then scroll down to see how you can win a gift card to the My Scraps & More store and then hop a final time to complete the hop!
I adore this plaid from the collection, so I cut a frame out of it so I could use the middle for another project. I placed the frame onto off white cardstock and then created the two layered photo areas, pretty well keeping to Audrey's sketch. The top left has a pocket element that I used to start the layout's title.
I layered the brown woodgrain paper, the holly paper, the pocket card, and the matted photo (which is popped up with 3D tape). I sewed along the top left diagonal to add texture and interest.
I did a similar layering for the bottom right photo area and duplicated the diagonal stitching. I used some of the stickers from Cozy around the entire layout (including the banner that hangs in the top right) and added a few red gems as well.
For the rest of the title, I used alpha stickers from Cozy, and then I added journaling strips to each photo area. It came together quickly!
