I went to the Royal Albert Hall for a ‘Christmas Singalong Concert’ just before Christmas with my friend and really wanted to document it. I decided to go for it and use the December paper and word from My Year My Story.
I took some of the papers from the 6 x 8 paper pad and punched them into squares with a ‘postage stamp’ type punch and used them beside the photos as part of the background.One of the designs was not what you would think of using for a Christmas layout – pineapples but I think it worked well !
In the paper pad there were also some unusual self embossed papers with wording and designs – one of these ‘ Love Every Day’ I used by inking over the design with some Tattered Rose and Aged Mahogany Distress Inks. A quick rub with some kitchen roll or a tissue over the embossed wording made it stand out.
I also used one with a hexagon design which I also inked over to bring out the design – this time with Spun Sugar Distress Ink.I then tucked it under the photo at the top.I also used some sayings from the Collectables Pack on this layout. I hope you’ve enjoyed this little preview of my layout using My Year My Story – don’t forget to pop back for some more inspiration very soon !
