Home for the Holidays Layouts | Kathleen Graumüller

Hey there, it's Kathleen back on the blog again and today I have two more layouts to share with you using the Home for the Holidays collection. This time there are no cutfiles involved, only good old fashioned fussy cutting. ;)

For my first layout I mainly used the Holiday Gifts paper and simply cut out a few of the gifts. I only picked the ones that would fit the color scheme I had in mind: green, blue, grey and light pink.

I cut my photo small enough that it would nestle right in with the little gifts. I did layer it on a piece of patterned paper and popped it up on some foam tape, though, to give it more dimension and make it stand out a little bit more.

I tried to arrange the gifts in a way so that the different colors and sizes would be spread out. I also wrapped some golden sewing thread around one of the grey gifts for a little added something. Besides, you can never have too much gold ;)

The rest of the page came together very quickly. I simply scattered some enamel dots around, spelled the words JOY and cheer with the white alpha stickers and added my journaling.

I deliberately kept the rest of the layout white, to mimic the snowy feel of the photo.

For my second layout I focused on another patterned paper: the Advent Love paper. When I saw it for the first time, I immediately knew what I wanted to use this for: an advent calendar sort of layout. I mean, it says it in the title, right?! ;)

I simply used an x-acto knife to cut around the edges of some of the days to create little doors or windows (keeping the left edge attached). My idea was to either place a photo for the corresponding day or simply some journaling behind them.

Of course you could open every single day, but I decided to only do a few and embellish the rest of the layout instead. I used a whole mix of embellishments, from puffy stickers to enamel dots and lots of dimensional stickers from the Mixed Embellishment Pack as well.

I haven't added anything behind the doors so far, but I took notes or photos on every day of December so I can easily go back and choose what to include on this layout.

I hope you enjoyed both layouts and they inspire you to work with your Home for the Holidays collection! Thanks a lot for stopping by!

This post is also a little bitter sweet, as it's my last blogpost as part of the Pinkfresh Studio Design Team. After more than two years on the team, I decided to step down so I could focus more on some personal projects. I absolutely loved being part of this wonderful team and working with the beautiful Pinkfresh Studio projects every month! PFS, Kinnari and Lea will always have a special place in my heart and I want to say a big THANK YOU for having me be part of the Pinkfresh Studio family for so long!

Xo, Kathleen
