Anatomy of a Layout by Becky Litz

Becky Litz is featuring our December Creative Kit today with a look at the design process for one of her layouts!


Hi Friends!

Becky here with you today to show you how I put together my Christmas Cuties layout!

I love making grid style layouts! You are able to add more than one photo as well as a bunch of clusters fun embellishments.

I decided on 3 inch squares so that there would be a nice balance of photos, elements and the background behind. I trimmed the photos slightly so that I could add a white mat and make them stand out.

So lets start with the top of the layout. I used a diecut bow to make this square into a gift! Afterwards I popped up the small green gift diecut and layered it on top to make it look like a pile of gifts.

When I placed the Christmas tree in the top left square it looked a little to lonely to me, so I added the '25'. The tree has very thin pop dots under it and the '25' has thicker ones so that they are at different heights and create depth.

The title of my layout was pretty easy to come up with...how cute are those kiddos!?!? I wanted a word that would fit nicely in the square and the word 'cuties' worked perfectly with the Thickers. A few holly stickers finished it off.

In the bottom left corner I used pop dots once again behind the wreath sticker (I love for things to pop off the page). I used a piece of ribbon from the kit to make a tiny bow and added it to the bottom of the wreath.

The patterned paper in the middle square was just so cute I didn't want to cover any of it up so I left it as it is.

Finally I took the three ornament die cuts and lined them up along the top of the bottom right square. They looked a bit strange just hanging in space there so I added the 'JOY' stickers and it helped.

Well that's it for me today. I hope you enjoyed seeing how I put my layout together. There are SO MANY awesome stickers and die cuts in this kit I'm sure you could make a layout in the same style as me and use totally different embellies! I'd love to see it! Please make sure you share on our FB page.

Thanks for stopping by today
