Good morning! It’s Day 6 of our “12 Days of Holiday Giving” event. If you are just joining us for the first time, welcome! We hope you’ll start with our first post on Day 1 HERE!

Today, we are excited to share a beautiful layout from Creative Team member Paige Evans and another fine prize package! Are you ready…let’s sing our favourite holiday song! Sing it loud!  A little cheer for everyone to hear right?  🙂

On the 6th day of SCT’s 12 Days of Holiday Giving, SCT shared with me….a gorgeous layout from designer Paige Evans and a fabulous prize package from Pink Paislee and Hero Arts!”

“Hi everyone! Paige Evans here with a new layout made with my Truly Grateful collection with Pink Paislee and Christmas Icons Grid Background cut file!

I started by die cutting the cut file from textured white cardstock. I spent about three hours backing all of the little shapes and images with mostly solid colored patterned papers from Truly Grateful. By picking and choosing the colors I was able to use this mostly fall-themed collection to work even for Christmas!

Once the images were backed it still looked a little empty so I also backed the squares themselves with more solid colored patterned papers. Done! I adhered the entire cut file onto a white cardstock background using dimensional adhesive to lift it off and create shadows & dimensions. For more texture, I machine stitched around the border.

I printed five photos at about 2″ square, trimmed them out leaving white borders, and then added them into the five empty spots on the grid. I typed little captions in my favorite font called Remington Noiseless, printed it out, trimmed them up, and glued them in place at the bottom of the photos.

I added “JOY” puffy letter stickers on the center photo for a simple title. And that’s it for embellishing! The backed cut file background does all of the work for me and I feel like it’s bright and colorful enough as-is.

I hope this layout inspires you in some way! It’s so fun using themed collections for different occasions other than what they’re intended for. It’s all about the colors!
