Stuck Sketches Guest Designer (Merry & Bright)

Hello again!  I'm excited to share that I'm the Guest Designer over at Stuck?! Sketches for the January 2015 reveal!  I love Laura's sketches, and its an absolute honour to be her Guest.  My layout is about Brielle's first Christmas and opening her first stocking.

The sketch showed four square photos in a linear vertical row, but I decided to use 2x3 landscape photos and slightly stagger them for interest.  I used my November Hip Kit from last year, which was full of the Elle's Studio "Good Cheer" collection.  

I wanted to use the Merry flags to create a stitched banner on the top right corner, and the empty space was perfect for my journalling.  The background misting is with Heidi Swapp Colourshine, using both the packaging technique and splatters.

The silver rub-on stars were the perfect finishing touch, and added that magical Christmas feeling!

I layered a wood venner flag over a die cut frame - and of course using up products that contain the year on them is always a good idea!

Here is Laura's amazing sketch.

Thanks for looking and thanks Stuck?! Sketches for having me!
