Using a circular design like the cut file from The Cut Shoppe really allows you to draw all of the focus into your photo.. Placing your photo right in the middle of the circular design is a great way of doing this. Graduating your colours, white, blue and then into a light pink, also helps to create that real circular feel to the layout. I just love how bright those blue papers are from Indigo Hills. So pretty!!

I started out with a plain white cardstock background and used my Silhouette Cameo to cut a large Christmas Tree cut file available now in The Cut Shoppe!
I then backed the white tree cut out with the pretty stripe patterned paper from the Mistletoe Kisses collection. I love how the colours look behind the cut file!
I used all the different embellishments from the collection to embellish my layout including the ephemera pack, the decorative clips and the stickers too. The wood veneer pieces are from a different collection! I also used one of The Cut Shoppe's cut files for my title, cutting it out, adhering it and then machine stitching through it for a little bit of texture!
Cut Files I used and found in The Cut Shoppe Etsy store:

Hello Sassy Scrappers! Kylie with you all today with a fun snailmail project using the "Classic Christmas" collection by Simple Stories.This range is great if you like working with more 'traditional' themed Christmas goodies.Here is a little look at just some of the collection-
And of course you can go shopping or view all of it here.
I created a fun Snailmail folder with multiple pockets for sending lots of paper goodness in.Here is a little look at the finished result without anything in it as yet......
I like creating this style of folder as it is so quick yet looks big on detail once embellished. I am a self confessed 'busy' embellisher.I like to have every last little nook and corner filled so there is plenty for the eye to browse over and lots of interest. If you would like a quick tutorial on this style of folder, you can see it here.
Let's take a little close up look at some more photos-
Here's just a sample of some of the extra goodies I have put together for sending in the pockets to my penpal.
Of course I will also add a letter and a few other goodies for sending as well. I liked the overall completed look!
I hope you have enjoyed my project this week.
Until next time, keep creating,

I cut down a full sized page protector to create a 6x12" festive insert ready to record more of our December memories. I began by filling one of the pockets with a mix of sequins and one of the exclusive 'Decked Out' cut files designed by The Cutshoppe (get your free download from the Sassy store) and used my fuse tool to create a fun shaker pocket.
For something a bit different I also used a few of the 'Favorite Things' cut files as digital stamps over the wood grain pattern from the 'Evergreen' 12x12" paper to create a custom background for one of my photos. To do this I scanned the patterned paper into my computer and used the png version of the cut files to add the images before printing it out onto matte photo paper.
The reverse side holds more cards ready for journaling and photos, and I love that the shaker pocket is double sided.
I tied the puffy stickers with some metallic thread and attached them to the card in a way that makes it look like they are hanging from the card. I finished with a layered a tag that is only attached to the card on one side so a photo can easily slip beneath it.
