Christmas Cousins by Heather Peterson

Hello it's Heather and I am back with a Christmas Layout to share with you today using the popular Teresa Collins December 25th cartridge. Be sure to grab a copy before the season is over- only $22.99!! Here is my layout:

  This is a 12x12 layout, using patterned paper from Basic Grey and inspired by a sketch from Creative Scrappers.

I love how well this sleigh cut fit into my layout. It is a really fun and versatile cut that could be used for all sorts of projects. I layered a few different strips of washi tape underneath the cut, and then added some coordinating little stickers on top. Because of the delicate filigree design on the bottom of the sleigh, I like to use my Zig glue pen- it makes it easy to place a coat of adhesive on those delicate cuts without damaging it.

For my title I used a phrase cut from the cartridge that said 'Merry Christmas' but used just the 'Christmas' portion, then I added some letter stickers for the second word. I like to mix up fonts, colors and styles on my titles- it makes it more visually interesting. Also, when I have a vey intricate cut like the "Christmas" I like to run it through my Xyron Sticker maker. Makes getting an even coat of adhesive very quick and easy.

To finish off I added some more coordinating stickers. Overall a very quick and easy layout!
