When I first saw Scrap Our Stash January challenge image, I really had no inspirations of what kind of layout to be created. But somehow I really wanted to create a page for this stash challenge. After several days’ reflection, an idea finally came out of my mind. I wanted to create a Christmas page by following the sketch (including the position of the title) and the color combination of this book cover as well as all the hints already provided: the stripes on the hat, the snow, and the cat.
The strips on the hat are my sources of inspiration to use the candy cane to create a string of gifts and to choose the crimson font for the word “Jour” in the title.
I chose some 2014 Christmas Eve’s photos for this layout. As there are too many, I also included some photos in a pocket, which cover is decorated with some cute little cats. To finish the page, I hand stitched the border with the red thread. Here are some details of the journaling and photos included in a double sided project life style paper, which is inserted in the pocket.
