Joy to the World | Crate Paper Fa La La | Tarrah McLean


It's Tarrah McLean back with you today to share another festive layout using the gorgeous Crate Paper Fa La La collection!

You can find this gorgeous collection along with loads of beautiful craft products in the Sassy Scrappers store now!

This photo is one of my most favourites taken on Christmas Day! I decided to cut out this large Joy title cut file from here so that my photo could be framed inside the letter 'O'. 

Once cut, I popped the cut file up using pop dots. I mostly used the Crate Paper Fa La La collection except for a few things added from my stash to help embellish. 

I even tried a little mixed media this week! I don't get messy very often but sometimes I get the urge to add some colour to the white background!

Joy | Crate Paper Fa La La | Tarrah McLean

Hi Sassy Scrappers!

Happy New Year to you all!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I am sharing yet another festive layout here on the Sassy blog! 

I have used the beautiful Crate Paper Fa La La collection and this week I reduced the size of my layout down to 8.5' x 11' instead of my regular 12' x 12' size.

I just adore that big chipboard tree and have wanted to use it on every layout I have made....I finally used it on this layout! I wanted to make it the main focus of this layout so I made everything else work around the placement of this piece!

The wood veneer frame, gold thread, baker's twine and flair button are from my stash and are not included with the Fa La La collection...sometimes I see things sitting on my desk that I just want to add to a page so I do!! 

The tags from the cut apart paper sheet were perfect to layer underneath my photo to help ground it against the white cardstock. I like that they add some interest to the right hand side of the layout. 

Thanks so much for stopping by the Sassy blog today!

Believe in Santa | Crate Paper Fa La La | Tarrah McLean


It's Tarrah McLean back with you today to share another festive layout using the gorgeous Crate Paper Fa La La collection!

You can find this gorgeous collection along with loads of beautiful craft products in the Sassy Scrappers store now!

This layout came together by chance! Don't you just love it when that happens?! I had a few scraps of paper laying around from creating other layouts so I decided to see how they would look forming a Christmas tree!

I love how it turned out!  

I used ephemera pieces for some of the shorter pieces and machine stitched through each of them to add definition.

I kept the embellishing simple by just adding a few of the stickers as I wanted to keep the focus on the tree design....

Merry Christmas | Crate Paper Fa La La | Tarrah McLean

Merry Christmas Sassy Scrappers!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you today to share another festive layout using the gorgeous Crate Paper Fa La La collection!
You can find this gorgeous collection along with loads of beautiful craft products in the Sassy Scrappers store now!

I started my layout today by cutting a Christmas Tree cut file using some of the scrap paper left over from last week's cut file! I then layered the pretty tree ephemera over the top to add some more colour. I just love those 'Joy, Peace and Love' chippie pieces, they went perfectly across the middle of the tree!

The embellishments in this collection make it so simple to create pretty pages! Both the flair buttons I have used on this layout are from my stash...

Happy creating and Merry Christmas everyone!!

Documenting December | Pinkfresh Studio 'December Days' | Agnus Kasprzak

Hi again :) Christmas is almost here and I have been busy documenting all the festivities using Pinkfresh Studio's December Days collection. 


Making room for a few 4x6" photo forced me to change my regular design A page format that I have used all year, but happy with the way it makes the larger photos stand out. 



Adding more of the gorgeous embellishments that I have used in my previous pages has made creating filler cards a breeze. The wooden buttons and foiled die-cuts have especially been my faves. 


It wouldn't be Christmas without the annual Santa photo! I used a cluster of die-cut and puffy sticker presents to cover up a stool that I didn't like in the bottom of the photo. 


Using one of the puffy sticker sayings directly over one of my photos. This works especially well when there are no people in the pics.


Using smaller embellishments directly over the photos to add a pop of colour


Going back to the Design A format to record more December memories. The gold foiled cardstock helped to balance out the warmer tones in my photos. 



Creating a cute little Christmas scene using some of the elements from the collection for a custom made filler card. 


Adding a flat ornament from your tree or even a tag from your wrapping is a good way to make your December pages more personalised.
