Let's Get Festive!

Hey Everyone! Casey here today to share some goodies from the festive kit. I absolutely love this Jovial line from Basic Grey. The colors have great depth and the way Devon matched up the buttons, ribbon, and paper to make it into the Festive Kit made it really fun to scrap. The first layout highlights one of my new favorite techniques. If you don't have perfect match of ribbon, just use your score it to make the pleats and then simply sew it down to lay flat using your sewing machine... Here's a closer look at the layout and at the pleated paper...

This next layout also has some beautiful festive goodies in it. I'm loving those fun American Crafts, Merry, Thickers right now, too. The colors are just so much fun! On this layout, I fussy cut some of those beautiful elements out of the paper and added a few buttons as accents. Here is a closer look...
