Being Together Christmas Layout | Couture Creations + Ultimate Crafts

#kerriegurney #couturecreationsaus #ultimatecrafts

Hi Everyone Kerrie here with a super quick Christmas layout.
I don't know about you all but sometimes you just want to crank out some quick layouts so that you can get your memories documented and layouts in your albums.
Christmas is one such occasion as you want to preserve those precious memories but you also want to spend time over the holiday season creating more memories with your family.
So quick & simple is what you need and this layout is super quick to create

Now I absolutely love this photo of my Great Nephews and Niece, it brings back so many memories of when my children where young and trying to get that perfect Santa photo.
Now young Finn is the most happy smiley baby but it would seem he shares my Ashleigh's "love" of Santa :) We only ever got one Santa photo with Ashleigh she was terrified of him and would climb under chairs/tables or anything to hide if she saw him and would not stop crying/screaming until the big guy was gone.

Tip 1; use Couture Creations Turbo Glue Pen to adhere you die cuts to your project, the fine tip is perfect for those intricate die cuts and is super strong so it is also fabulous for adhering metal embellishments and flowers

Tip2; don't throw away your foam dot scraps, cut them up and use to give dimension for sentiments and larger pieces

Tip 3; Use Couture Creations Sponge Dauber to ink the edges of all your patterned papers and cardstock and it is also perfect for inking up your intricate die cuts

Tip 4; Ink the edges of your base with not only a brown ink pad but also with a watermark/clear ink pad and sprinkle with Gold Embossing powder and heat set

this gives your edge double dimension with a touch of metallic

I cut my patterned papers for my layers to the following sizes
Check; 28cm x 17.5cm
Stars & Hearts; 25.5cm x 13cm
Spot; 8.5cm x 23cm & 8.5cm x 7.5cm
Cardstock; 13cm x 17.5cm

If you want to amp your layout up a bit you can distress the edges of your papers and cardstock, add some more embellishments like pearls or add more texture with some texture paste
I kept this one nice and simple by adding something more to the background with some quick paint splatters
