Layout Share: Tree Trimming

This is another layout created from the Jillibean Soup products we received in our Design Team kits this month.
I used some really old photos of my kiddos on this layout and it was fun looking back and remembering just how little they were. :)

I started by layering some of the papers along the bottom of the layout. I hand cut the scallops along the top of the kraft paper, following the paper's printed design. Once my papers were all adhered down, I added some of the coordinating trims (red and green) and added my journaling with the die cut circles that were included in our kit.
I added clusters of buttons in three places on the layout for emphasis:
Then I added my title at the top of the page with the larger green stickers in the kit. I also added a pop of color with the die cut circle behind the title. And to finish off the layout, I used my white gel pen to add stitching lines.
