Holiday Layout by Bea Valint

Hey there! Happy Wednesday! It’s Bea Valint here with a new layout to share featuring the adorable Hey Santa collection by Crate Paper. This time I wanted to show you a fun way to use a lot of embellishments on your layout.

To begin, I gathered some favorite embellishments from the collection and tried to find the best way to use them all on my page. I also decided to create DIY embellishments to add a more personal touch to my page. I made some 3D ornaments and a bunch of buttons using my WRMK Button Maker.

To avoid being the layout too busy, I chose a soft pink cardstock as my background. Next, I trimmed 1cm wide paper strips using red patterned papers from the 6×8 paper pad. I created a big bow from the paper strips, and crossed the strips in the center of the background to imitate a big gift box.

I printed out two small photos from the last holiday season and placed them both onto the layout.

Then I arranged all the pretty embellishments into the box shape. To adhere the stickers and die cut pieces, I used foam tape to add more dimension. I placed a gift tag next to the paper bow and added a ‘Merry Christmas’ sticker from the sticker book.

To add more interest to the page, I highlighted the corners of the gift box shape with machine stitched details and punched photo corners. I also stitched some beads to the background. I splashed white acrylic paint as a finishing touch.

I hope you like my holiday-themed layout and I could encourage you to use the Hey Santa collection on your next paper project. Thanks for stopping by!
