Perfect Fit (a little Challenge inspiration)

Hello it’s Ali with you here today to show you what I got up to with the new Tim Holtz Layering Stencil – Measured and the gorgeous Gingerbread Collection.

We have a tradition in our house on Christmas Day – if you receive new clothes from Father Christmas you have to try them on. As I got Kinky Knickers I was encouraged to keep up  with tradition!

The first thing I did was to mix some gold Gelatao into some texture paste to give it some colour. I swiped it through the stencil to get some lovely dimension.

You can see here that I couldn’t resist the gorgeous Rhinestone Sparklets to add a little more dimension and bling.

Then I used a misting spray with the stencil. After misting through it I flipped it over and pressed it onto the page for a ‘solid’ image of the tape measure. Once that had dried I stencilled through with Distress Ink in Festive Berries.

The Collectables and Sticker Sheet make it so easy to bring your layout together. There are a ton of lovely little icons to choose from.

It’s so easy to make your own embellishments with a paper clip and a couple of strips of the 6×6 papers.

I had so much fun playing around with the Stencil. I can not wait to see what you do 🙂

And don’t forget that you have more time to join in with this particular Stencils challenge which will not close until January 3rd.

A Christmas Countdown

…or should that be up?!!

Either way, it’s Ali here with you to share a super quick and simple advent mini album.

First and foremost, gather your supplies. I chose to use the Gingerbread Collection. It is the most sublime retro colour palette, with fun little icons.

I used a 4×6 photo frame with a stand from that Swedish warehouse store we all know and love 🙂

The next step is to drill two holes in the top of the frame, big enough for a couple of rings; this will be your binding mechanism.

Choose one of the 4×6 journal cards to sit behind the acetate/glass and embellish with stickers and the Collectables over the acetate and onto the frame itself. This will be your Christmas Day page, so choose something that you love!

That is it in a nutshell…told you it was simple!

Now you get to make 24 little works of art. I used all the numbered stickers on the Number sheet and worked with papers and embellishments according to the sticker colour. Here’s a little taste:

You could use this idea for a December Daily project or a Christmas mini. The frame would be great for a birthday countdown too.
