I am so excited to share my very first project for Feed Your Craft! There are so many reasons why I love this company, first of all Elise is a gem and so very talented! Plus the partnership with Brandi who I just adore, makes me so happy. The products are very high quality, the cards are printed on the most beautiful paper, the colors are bold and bright and the designs are perfect for style of projects. An amazing added bonus is that I receive my packages in less than 5 days (I’m in Canada), that’s spectacular, as we know online order usually tends to take forever to reach us.
My first project today features Brandi’s new Christmas collection – Comfort and Joy. As always everything that Brandi creates is magic, I love her beautiful designs and the color combo is perfection!!! To create my project I used a PL spread form my 2016 album that I hadn’t yet completed, I’m sad to report that I still have a bit of spreads for 2016 to complete, it’s too bad bummer but this collection was ideal for this weekly spread, so in the end it all worked out!
The diecuts from the Comfort and Joy collection are the best for creating customized PL cards, this tree paired with a puffy heart sticker makes for the cutest combo. I love it when a collection offers versatility, I love having a lot of options to create my spreads. In the picture at the very top I also combined diecuts with stamp and puffy star, this creates the most adorable cluster of embellishments.
When creating a PL spread it is essential that I have white space, especially if my pictures are too dark. I will make sure to use a lot of white colored cards, it really brightens up a spread.
The second page of my spread features 4×6 pockets, which I don’t normally use but because this spread featured our family pictures it was appropriate to include a large picture. Again the diecuts and puffy heart were the ideal accent to the 4×6 picture.
The other 4×6 pocket was ideal for my date card, which I created using the Inline stamp set from FYC. Paired with diecuts from the Comfort and Joy collection it resulted in a fun accent card.
This spread is one of my favorite I created in a while, Brandi’s collection really sparked my creativity. Pairing diectus and stamps has been a fun experience, one that I need to do more often!! I hope you will stop by FYC to see the new collections, Comfort and Joy and Remember December.
