Joy Layout by Nicolle Kramer Using My Mind's Eye All is Bright Collection

Joy Layout
Featuring: My Mind's Eye All is Bright Collection

Today is my first post of the year here at The Hen's Den and the start of my second year as part of the Design Team. I was so happy that Charlie asked me back for a second term. Not only are these ladies amazingly creative but really cool to be on a team with. Fun, Fun, Fun and supportive too.

 January's Kit is All is Bright by My Mind's Eye. How appropriate coming off of  the Christmas holiday. I don't know about you but I have a ton of photos to scrap. 

This is what I received in my kit for the month.

These paper's inspired me to scrap about a Christmas tradition here at the Kramer's house. We love to bake. My boys have grown up so now it's just me and the girl's continuing on with the traditions. Jolie especially loves putting together the gingerbread house kit I buy every year. It seems like every weekend we are baking something from putting together the gingerbread house, to baking cookies and making chocolate candy molds. What can I say we love our sweets.

A few of the techniques I used in this layout are layering, distressing with scissors and distressing with inks as well. I layered the May Arts ribbons in with the papers behind the photos. I also cut the individual rosettes from the May Arts Trim. How cute is that piece of decorative tape in the corner of the gingerbread house photo?

Below is a close of up a pretty poinsettia that I die cut using my new Tim Holtz die. I love how the chipboard tags elements ties into the whole design of my layout.

I used the Joy chipboard elements for the title. That individual rosette was perfect to make holly with.

I had so much fun working with this collection.
