BasicGrey "Jovial" Line

Oh, the joy of christmas scrapbook papers! And, as expected, BasicGrey did not disappoint. Their Jovial line is simply gorgeous.

I did something different and created my cards before my layouts. I loved that this line could look formal and classy but with the same papers it could be fun and sassy!

Formal and classy: (marshmallow glimmer mist makes great lookin' snow on black cardstock!)


Fun and sassy:


For my layouts, I created a two page layout (which I haven't done in awhile) using several photos. I like the idea of using several photos on my Christmas layouts so I don't have pages and pages and PAGES of the same kinds of pictures every year. :)
My "Frosty" layout also uses multiple photos-- wallet sized. I based the theme on a subject that passed over multiple years versus the same activity in one year. This is a great way to combine a tradition w/ only one photo from several years together.


Aren't those chipboard snowmen (and snowflakes... and ornaments.... and stars... and frames.... and journaling spots) just the cutest? Go get you some JOVIAL!
Pin It!

Angela,
I love your "food, family, and fun" lay-out, it reminds me of a Jen Jockish lay-out! It is so coool, I love the way you layered and added the emblishments carefuly so it doesn't look too busy and it's full of wonderful things to look at. I am super impressed with the "Frosty" lay-out, all those funky snowmen, you really made it work beautifuly, I would have struggled with that, and you've made a mini-masterpiece out of it. I'm impressed. Totally delightful!!! love, Deb.
