There’s something extra special about seeing an email from Jan come in with an attachment. It’s like Christmas Eve. I just know that something amazing and fun is coming my way. For instance…like this gift box by Jan H. Who wouldn’t love to see this under their tree? I don’t know if I’d even care what was in it!
Next Jan sent over her Cookies for Santa 12×12 layout. It is classic Jan with plenty of interest for even the most easily distracted viewer. I particularly love the circular background for the title. The Glitz Design What Nots add some ready made fun to the background. And let’s not ignore the fun border cut out addition on the green polka paper.
Jan’s Home For Christmas 12×12 Layout:
In this layout Jan took advantage of the picture’s angle to add a diagonal aspect to the page. The title and the journaling and the Glitz What Nots (such a fun addition to any page) are a great grouping. My favorite part of this layout is the extravagant floral embellishment cluster in combination with the open space around the edges of the page.
How amazing are these pictures??? And how amazing is that background paper? It’s by Pink Paislee and we’re all amazed by the ink resistant design. It’s AWESOME! You ink the page and the design of the paper is evident as the doily pattern is an embossed, slick texture so that when you ink it it only gets “around” it. Now…besides the obvious…check out how amazingly detailed Jan’s layouts are. They’re so detailed that it’s almost shocking.
This page has so many fun aspects that I don’t even know where to start or where to head next! I have to point out the torn book page border. LOVE IT! And I absolutely love how detailed she got with the alphas. She used pop dots under each alpha. The stitching is another great, subtle addition that really makes a difference to the overall look of the page.
Don’t be discouraged by how amazing Jan’s projects are! These designers are all professionals. This is what they DO! And they do it so you can see it and copycat and get just as fabulous a result (after a bit of practice, that is). So jump in and give it a try!
And watch for more project ideas coming soon from Francine and Amy!
