January Challenge

Merry & Bright by Megan
This layout features a gift Megan received for Christmas this year (the ring) and she used her Cricut Expression (gift from last year) and the SCAL (Sure Cuts ALot) program to cut out some text for her title from a font she had on her computer. The title was cut out in red cardstock, then glittered with stickles after it dried she adhered it to her layout, and traced around it with her white pen. She also used some paper from a non-Christmas themed stack to create the layout base. The other items she used for this layout were stickles, brads, gemstones, holly and berry buttons, clear definition stickers, stamps to create the labels, and a border punch. She has had the clear definition stickers and holly buttons for a LONG time in her stash, so she was excited to be able to use them on her layout.

Now it's your turn. Check out how you can submit your project and be eligible to become a Guest Design Team Member in March. See the details below in January Christmas Gift Challenge.

  2. Beautiful ring! I love your title. I know it took a few steps to create it, but it was so worth it.

  3. Everything is gorgeous...from the ring to the layout!! I struggle using PP as my background paper so I love seeing great layouts like that! It really is inspiring!

  4. WOW! I just love it all! Beautiful ring!! I rally like the background pp and that it is not a traditional Christmas paper but you have a whole Christmas theme going on here. Your title came out fantastic - so worth the extra work. All the little extras fit right in.
