I took these photos of Tobin in front of the Christmas tree at his great grandparent's house.
As soon as I saw these photos printed out, I knew they would look great cut into circles and Allison's card sketch had the perfect arrangement for them. I took 3 major inspiration points from the sketch. The photo shape and placement, stitching, and the message or title placement. I also decided to create a triangle with the title and embellishments to draw attention to my favorite of the 3 photos. I used the stitching to hang ornaments along the top to continue the Christmas feel and also because Tobin just loved all the ornaments on the tree. I had fun leaving all the papers and accents in muted, retro tones so that the photos, with their full color, really pop.
Supply list - Patterned paper: The Paper Studio (black ornament and "Merry Christmas") and Jillibean Soup (Kraft snow flake); Lace: Making Memories; Candy canes: SEI; Stamp: Hero Arts (reindeer); Glitter Accent: Stickles, Ranger; Tools: Cricut, ("1st" Lyrical Letters cartridge, Loop de Loo feature, "Christmas" and "my" Lyrical Letters, Connected feature)
And a big thank you to Jennifer for helping with brainstorming, supplies, tools, and time on this layout! I made it while visiting Austin for the holidays.
