A Pink Holiday Layout by Nicolle Kramer using My Minds Eye Follow Your Heart Be Happy

A Pink Holiday
Designed By: Nicolle Kramer
Featuring: My Mind's Eye Follow Your Heart Be Happy

About 2 months ago my daughter decided to dye her hair pink. Yes pink like Easter egg pink. I am all for freedom of expression so I figured why not? Kayla is 16 years old and well if her hair falls out it will always grow back. Hee Hee! This year I bought a new tree for the holiday. If you know me I love the color pink. So yes you guessed it. I bought a pink Christmas tree. I thought it would be a cute idea to get a pink haired girl next to the pink tree and take a picture. I believe its going to be one PINK holiday.

I made this layout without using any Christmas or Holiday related papers. The techniques I used in this layout scissor distressing, fussy cutting, tearing, layering and I used mist on the red flower. For inspiration I search the internet for sketches.

 To get an ornament type effect I cut 3 hexagon images from Honey Pink paper and cut bakers twine different lengths. I made bows and added to top center of hexagons.

I fussy cut and image from Be Joyful paper.

Preparing and assembling your layout:

  • I used 12"x12" Your Song paper for base.
  • I used the tear technique on the Pink Striped , Be You, Flourish and Doily papers. I layered them so you can see all the papers plus the background base paper.
  • The photo is matted with black bazzill paper that's 1/4" bigger all around.
  • I fussy cut 5 hexagons from honey pink paper, 2 doilies from doily paper, 1 frame from adorable paper and a flowery  image from Be joyful paper. 
  • I layered 2 doilies, 1  frame and  2 hexagons  under the photo. I adhered the photo on top the layers with foam squares and adhered the fussy cut image a bit over the bottom left of photo.
  • For extra embellishments I added brads and gems sporadically around photo. Refer to top photo. I used alpha stickers for the title and placed them to the right of the photo. 
  • For the top right of layout I strung 3 hexagons from bakers twine to give and ornament type effect. I also added 7 rows of gems with 3 or 4 gems in each verticle row to add a festive look.
  •  Finished off adding the daisy lace trim to left side of the photo. Adding flowers and a decorative clip to top left of photo.
