December designs from Claire

Continuing our offering of gorgeous designs from our December bumper kit, Claire B has put together these fab pages. She sent me one more layout this evening to add to her batch so if you checked us out earlier you'll notice something new! Grab a wintry 6" x 4" portrait photo and you are ready to start creating this page! Claire has used her sewing machine to add texture to this design (or you could handstitch if you are feeling brave!) but you could very easily use a faux stitching effect created with a white pen and paper pricking tool - same effect with less stress if sewing isn't your thing! A decorative corner punch will add a fun finish and you'll also need some bobble trim, brads and adhesive letters for your title.

This lovely Christmas page uses a single 7" x 5" landscape photo and a fab technique using a decorative corner punch to create a circular frame to draw the eye in. You just need to add some bling and you are good to go!

Claire makes great use of a decorative edge punch set to create a seasonal themed page with a single 6" x 4" portrait photo accented with hand cut holly leaves and berries.

We couldn't help but laugh at the title of this double page layout - anyone with cats will completely get this, Christmas trees are like a theme park for cats! Claire used four 6" x 4" photos which she overlapped to create a great flow across the design - two landscape photos and two portrait. She created a gorgeous stitched border around the left and bottom of the page and her instructions include a template if you want to do the same. Just add a needle and embroidery floss and some blingage and you are ready to create this one!

We can't wait to see what else is coming from this gorgeous kit - thank you Claire!!
