The Best Time of the Year Layout | Suzanna Stein

Hey there crafty pals! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. I’m crazily documenting all the fun and festive happenings of the month, and love this layout I created with the Joy kit!

During our family Christmas Eve party, someone snapped these photos of Cody and I laughing. I felt like the photos completely summed up our wonderful Christmas Eve and I knew immediately I wanted to create a layout around them! The Joy kit was perfect for doing this, and since I’m obsessed with every aspect of the collection, I ended up using most of the elements on my page.

I couldn’t resist adding this gorgeous tree tag with one of the ribbons from the kit. It added that little extra something that the left side was needing for balance. I also put a little cluster of word stickers that summed up the event perfectly!

For the title of the layout, I knew I wanted to do a few things: First, I wanted to use two different alphas to mix it up a bit, since my title is fairly long. Second, I wanted to bring in another gold element to tie in the heart washi tape I used on the layout. The Autumn white and gold alphas were perfect for this!

At the top of the page, I clustered a couple journal cards with a patterned paper. Then I added various embellishments to add texture, and popped my date into one of those fun labels from the die cut pack. To finish off the layout, I splattered a little gold watercolor around the layout because it was just a little too clean for my messy style!

I am absolutely in love with the way this layout turned out, and would definitely say it is my favorite project I’ve worked on this month. I’ve been loving seeing your creations on Instagram with the Joy kit - do you have a favorite layout? Tag your photos with #FJjoy so we can all see them!
