Hello die cutting friends!
I'm really excied to share with you a new scrapbook page today showcasing Kerri Bradford Studio Die Cuts! In fact, this page is one of my favorites of all time. The simplicity, the monochromatic tone-on-tone white, the tiny, tiny embellies that I love so much and the fact that it goes in our family's Christmas Cards Album (the cards we send out every year) all make this a new favorite!
Almost everything on this page was created with die cuts! Eleven designs in all from 9 different kits. How awesome is that?!!!
Here's a breakdown of the KBS kits I used (links for each kit are below the project photos):
- Merry & Bright (title)
- Snowflake, Etc. (snowflake)
- Christmas Countdown (snowflake)
- December Additions The Extras (tag, snowflake)
- Here Comes Santa Claus (snowflake)
- Holly Jolly Christmas (snowflake)
- This & That Christmas Past (snowflake)
- This & That Winter (two snowflakes)
- Background Basics
To make my title really pop I die cut it 5x from the beige cardstock and layered them one right on top of another for a dimensional, almost chipboard looking title.
I am currently having a love affair with the look of white on white in my paper crafting and when I set out to scrapbook this photo card from almost nine years ago and had trouble finding the right color "fit" it suddenly dawned on me how elegant a white page might be to really make the photo take center stage. I couldn't keep just a plain white cardstock background, though, so I die cut one of Kerri's Background Basics designs at 12" square I and layered the die cut cardstock on top of the same color of background cardstock for a subtle background tone-on-tone texture.
Then I die cut a bunch of tags from white and the hole reinforcements from a light beige and set to adding snowflakes die cut from patterned papers to each tag. Embellishments in silver and gold complete the snowflakes.
- white plastic stars (Studio Calico)
- gold sequin heart (Studio Calico)
- gold heart charm (Studio Calico)
- Fancy Pants The Good Life 6x6 Paper Pad
- Teresa Collins Santa's List 6x6 Paper Pad
- Studio Calico 6x6 patterned papers (from past kits)
In case you missed it during that crazy month that was December, here are the latest additions to Kerri's Online Store. So much good stuff to create with! Now that the holidays are over I plan on die cutting/scrapping my little heart out!
