Hello and Welcome to our monthly scrapbooking blog hop!!
This is an amazing international group of awesomeness!!
This month, the theme was designed by the amazing Delys Cram.
At first, I was a bit daunted by this theme, but I spotted my fun masks and I was away happily creating!
I used Old Olive for the checkerboard background and then Soft Succulent for the flowers in 2 corners - a blending brush and the masks - easy peasy! Then, I stamped some splodges, flowers, words and some Love from the Quiet Meadow stamp set (totally LOVE this set for background stamping!). I used Soft Sea Foam and Mossy Meadow for this stamping.
And Lastly I stamped the gorgeous fonted Merry Chirstmas from the Brightest Glow stamp set randomly in the bottom corner.
And then, all I had to do was add my photos!! They are layered onto some Old Olive cardstock.
I do love doing a monochromatic project!! AND I do LOVE green too!!
My journaling panels were die cut using the Labels Aglow dies and these were adhered with some fun Soft Succulent ribbon underneath.
Lastly I added some gorgeous InColour rounds for sparkle.
So, in the end, my page was a breeze - the background stamping and masks did ALL the heavy lifting - there is not really much else added to the page! I hope you're inspired to try this too!

Oh wow Julia I love this layout - your background is super cool.ReplyDelete
Aw thankyou so much! I really enjoyed this and found it so easy and fun!Delete
Julia this is incredible creative background using a colour I am not a HUGE fan of.ReplyDelete
BUT it looks Absolutely Fabulous matching your Christmas day theme. So many things about this background make my heart happy...You used a few stamps, lots of ink and masks. I don't see any DSP on your layout which I know that you love to use like me... I am going to CASE your layout, I hope that is OK... Thank you for joining us again this month with your take on creative backgrounds. Cheers Shaz
Thankyou so much - yes, I did love creating this one!! And using the masks was so much fun!Delete
Beautiful background. I’ve yet to use the florals in This stencil pack. Your layout convinced me to give them a try. The monochromatic colors are perfect with your photos. Simply fabulous job! JillReplyDelete
Thankyou so much Jill. Yes, I think the flowers are a bit large for a card - but I loved how they turned out on my page!Delete
I am so glad that you used those decorative masks! I wanted to use them but needed some inspiration, which I now have thanks to you! Your page is lovely.ReplyDelete
