Day 3 | Handwritten Holiday Accents

I love looking at how everyone writes. There are a lot of visible styles these days in the social media world. There’s a lot of people sharing words in creative fashion–me included…obviously. ;) It’s just fascinating and amazing to see. I love it. And there’s just something about seeing a phrase written in script that sets it apart from a typographic phrase.

Don’t get me wrong though, I love both styles….obviously, as well. haha

In fact, that’s what today’s freebie, Merry Christmas Everyone, has…both a script version and a typographic one. You’ll have to check the store using the link (above) for the typographic one because I’m gonna use one of these script versions here in my album.

 

 

I just need to decide whether to use the vellum or transparency version. And I had…haaaaad…to Minc mine. Makes it so purdy! If any of you are wondering, to Minc mine I used a LaserJet printer with vellum and a transparency for laser printers and put it through my machine on the 2 setting.

And speaking of scripty things, check out this amaaazing spread by KBS family member, Miss Sheree where she uses a handwritten phrase from the Holiday Happiness kit.

 

 

 

 

 

That’s just the dreamiest thing ever! And funny thing, I actually have plans to do something similar to this (not saying what) to something else that’s coming (not saying what).

This truly is simply beautiful! And I love how the house on one side is white and on the flip side its a lovely vintage holiday red. wow.

Let’s hear what Sheree has to say:

When I saw the adorable Christmas Village cut file in the store I had the idea to create a fun, house shaped page for my December album.  I chose one of the cute little houses, enlarged it in my Silhouette program and cut it out with some textured white  cardstock.  To create the back side of the house, I flipped the image in the program and cut it again using some red polka dot paper.  This gave me the perfect mirror image of the first house which allowed me to put them back to back. 

I layered some star acetate in between the two pieces, so you can see stars in the door and windows.  To allow the page to turn easily in my album, some plain acetate pieces were added to the side.   Using the page protector as a guide I was then able to punch holes in the acetate.

I decorated the white side of the house with stitching, some gold chipboard numbers and stamped a gold embossed wreath using the Merry Stamp Set.  The red side of the house was decorated with some gold stickers.

For the pocket page side of this spread I thought the “no place like home” phrase from the Holiday Happiness printable set was perfect to go with the house page!  I sized it to fit a 6 x 4 inch card, printed it, added a stitched border and a little gold star.  To finish off this spread I added some stamping to the top of the journaling card using the Bundle Up stamp set.

I had so much fun creating this spread and love how the little house looks in my December album!

Gorgeous, right? Love the peek-a-boo stars and how she used acetate to add it to the album. Brilliant!

Would you like to see it all come together? Ya. Me too. :) And Sheree, I had to laugh at your restamping the two lines of text because they were too far apart. Two words: me too.  I do the same exact thing. :)
