Be Merry and Joyous

Hello dear 49 And Market friends,

It’s hard to believe but the year has come and gone and we are counting the final days to Christmas. I don’t know about you, but I have always loved this time of year. It’s always been a time for family and spending time with those we love. Admittedly it’s a bit harder when you don’t get that opportunity.

So in memory of all those times I created this layout using a picture of my parents and I.

Products used

Winter’s Edge “Snowdrift”

Winter’s Edge “Frolic”

Winter’s Edge Laser- Cut images

Botanical blends “Snow”

Stargazers ” Simply White”

As you can see I used the brand new Winter’s Edge collection. It’s really versatile and you can easily turn your page upside down to get a different look. The beauty of this paper is that  you don’t need to add much media or too many embellishments to make it shine. It’s gorgeous even if you use only a couple of key elements as focus points.

I used my favorite flowers, our stunning Simply White Stargazers, to create 2 main flower clusters. I then added in 2 wire pollen embellishments from the Botanical Blends Collection and 13arts chipboard to extend it towards the bottom of the page.

As you can see I used a couple of the beautiful images and words from the Laser Cut Sheet to create the scene. To add texture and make them stand out more,  I affixed them all with a bit of double sided foam.

Well that is all from me today. I hope you enjoyed your time here and wish you a Merry Christmas and wonderful New Year. May you have a joyous time with your family and may 2019 be filled with love and blessings.

Till next time, take care and remember to capture your time together.

With love
