Pretty Little Studio: Merry Everything

Monday, December 28, 2020

Merry Monday, y'all!  I trust you all had a blessed Christmas!  We're still enjoying a little break from school this week and getting ready to usher in 2021.  Gosh, I pray that it is full of so much more freedom and joy than 2020 has delivered.  Anyhow, I'm stopping in today to share my latest, Pretty Little Studio project, which happens to have been inspired by the newest collection, Christmas Cheer.  Friends, I cannot put this collection down; so, just be prepared for lots more to come in the new year.  Without further adieu, enjoy!

I started this page by splattering the Boughs of Holly background page with Titanium White, acrylic paint.  While it was drying, I used Stocking Stuffer Die-Cut flags and tiny, scalloped borders to create ornament toppers for my Cameo-cut photos, which were also matted with white cardstock.

I then tucked layered, Joyous Word Die-Cut branches; die-cut, from white cardstock, mistletoe sprigs; and stamped, in Lucky Limeade ink, on white cardstock, and hand-cut pine bits in behind the ornament tops with lengths of Baker's Twine, tied in bows.

This top-most ornament was also dressed up with a Stocking Stuffer, "love this day with you", phrase die cut and popped up with foam tape.

Another Stocking Stuffer, "magic in the air," phrase die cut tops the Joyous Word Die-Cut, "MERRY everything" title.

The dotted-line hanging the star on the original, background page inspired black-threaded, straight, machine stitches to hang all of my ornaments and lots more stars.  Most of those stars came from the Kris Kringle Die Cuts package and were popped up with more foam tape.

However, a few were stamped, in Marina Mist and Pretty in Pink inks, on white cardstock and hand-cut out.

All of the stars, with the exception of this sweet, little, stamped, in Jet Black ink, star outline, were covered with an extra-fine, glitter detail; and the berries were coated in Glossy Accents to add more texture and shine and complete the look.

Thanks so much for visiting, friends!  Have a safe and blessed New Year!  XOXO
