Tinsel Town | The Magic of Christmas

I am so excited to stop in today and share my first layout, using my newest collection from Pretty Little Studio, Tinsel Town!!  The collection arrived the day before we went out of town for the Thanksgiving holiday, so I couldn't wait to sit down and make a layout, our first day back home!  

I love using non-traditional Christmas colors, so I knew I wanted a bright, fun color scheme when I created this collection.  I also love Wood Grain papers, so I started the layout by cutting my title from the Yule Log patterned paper.  I used the new Christmas Magic cut file set from The Cut Shoppe, to create a large title on the layout.  Once the title was cut, I added it to a white cardstock background, tilted it a bit and then stitched through it with my sewing machine.

I wanted several textures on the layout, so I used a mix of the Twinkle Acrylics, Twinkle Die Cuts, Wood Veneers, Flair Button and sequins.  I love the scattered look of the embellishments and the various dimension created by each one.  Since the design of the layout gravitated on the left side of the page, I decided to balance it with some patterned papers from the collection on the right hand side.  I cut strips from several of the patterned papers and layered them along the right side of the page.  Then I stitched along each one, to bring some texture to the strips.

I hope you've had a chance to pick up some of the Tinsel Town collection from the PLS shop, and that you've found some inspiration today for working with the collection!  This is a LIMITED EDITION COLLECTION, so make sure you get it while it's available!

I'm also doing a GIVEAWAY on my Instagram account, so make sure you check it out for the chance to win a selection of the Tinsel Town collection.  You can find me on Instagram at @ashleyhorton75.
