December Album Foundation Pages 17-18 | Lottie Loves Paper

Tuesday 29 December 2020


Hi everyone, me again with another two foundation pages for my December Album to share for Lottie Loves Paper. I'm using a mixture of two collections: Hey Santa by Crate Paper and Merry & Bright by Cocoa Vanilla Studio.

Page 17 was straightforward. I started with a white cardstock background and created a large pocket using that gorgeous Speciality Vellum from the Hey Santa collection. I simply cut a piece at an angle and then stitched around the edges of the full page - this left the top edge of the pocket open so I could slot things in. I've added three large tags: two are from a Hey Santa cut apart sheet, one is plain white that I cut myself and then there are two journaling cards from the Hey Santa ephemera. I haven't turned these into tags, they are just slotted in the pocket. Sometimes the big items in ephemera can be challenging to use but using them in this way is super easy. I can add photos or journaling to both the front and the backs if I want to or just stick to the backs, keeping the fronts pretty! I ditched the digital number I made for this page and went for a large white number cut on my Silhouette. I was attempting to re-create the large felt number that Ali Edwards sold this year as part of her DD kits. I didn't have those and thought they would be fun to recreate. So I cut large numbers on my machine out of white card, created an internal offset and set that internal line to 'dashed'. This gave me a stitching template to follow for the inside of the numbers. I then stitched these using gold thread. They aren't quite the same but they aren't bad and were definitely fun to make.

For page 18 I printed a cut file from Peartree Cut Files. I then used it as a template. I fixed it over a white card background and then pierced holes in the points of each star. I removed the template then stitched the stars in red embroidery floss. I love how it turned out! I then cut the internal stars out of glitter paper and stuck those in. I added my number and a few embellishments, including an elf sticker from Hey Santa who looks like he is reaching up to put a decoration on a tree. I also added some white stars to my white background to give it a bit of texture.

Thanks so much for joining me today and I hope you enjoyed these layouts and the video.

Happy scrapping
