Hi everyone! Enza here, and today I am sharing my first layout featuring the new Jolly kit!!! This kit is just gorgeous. Not only for the vibrant colors, which are absolutely amazing but for its magical feel. My layout was inspired by the candy canes in the collection.
I started with a candy cane cut file. I modified it a little bit, as I wanted to create a space in the middle for my photo and embellishments. The striped pink, red, and white patterned paper worked perfectly with it, as it gives the right amount of color, with a very festive look.
After adhering down the picture with craft foam to give it more dimension, I fussy cut the big candy cane you see at the bottom right corner out of one of the planner dividers. I love the way it stands out! Then, I kept adding die cuts, stickers, and pieces from the cut-apart sheet. Layering is one of my favorite techniques. I find that it adds a lot of dimension and texture, and gives more interest to the page.
I finished the layout with gold star sequins (from my stash) placed all around the edge of the circle, and white pearlescent Liquid Pearls.
I'm very happy with how this page turned out. It's happy, festive, and nostalgic at the same time.
Thank you for stopping by! Have a “jolly” day!
