Happy New Year

I realize that it's not quite Christmas yet and the New Year is a little over a week away but I just had to share this layout I created (and can be seen on the American Crafts blog today). We celebrated the new year as a family, with photo booth props, poppers, confetti, sparkling grape juice and more. Celebrating the New Year with little ones exudes a new level of excitement. We had fun with confetti this last New Years and this photo really captured the pure joy.

How to: Using white cardstock as your base, adhere the gold dot vellum paper to the top 1/2 of the page.  Adhere the Little Things paper to the bottom 1/2 of the page.  Add a 1 1/2" border using the Little Things B side of the paper above the seam. Adhere the gold scallop border over the 1 1/2" border. Stitch the papers along the seams.  Hand cut the banners from the Ooh La La paper and adhere to the top of the page.  Add a pleather bow in the upper right where the banners connect.  Scatter enamel dots like confetti over some of the gold vellum dots.Create a photo mat/frame from coordinating papers, including the gold dot vellum.  Cut a chalkboard frame from the Chalkboard paper pad.  Journal with a gold pen and embellish to your liking.  Add a fun and flirty title by mixing alphas.
