Less layouts

I've been making a lot less layouts after I started PL. I kind of miss it, but it's a lot harder to make layouts than PL. But here's a layout I've made from the SC Blue Note kit. I only got the main sb kit in December and it's been quite enough to work with for me.

PL December continues

I'm at page number six for my December PL. The Studio Calico "Blue Note" kit is almost gone, I only have 9 cards left. I won't share the 3rd and 4th page because they have lots of photos from the Saint Lucia event at my kid's pre-school and have lots of photos of their friends in them. But here are pages 5 and 6:

I'm still struggling to keep the pages light. December is so dark here in Sweden, especially right now when there is no snow. Making photo collages and turning fuzzy photos bland&white adds some white to the spread. 

For the first collage (with my husband and his friend) I used a free template from Paislee Press, that you can find here. The 4x4 template with the circle middle is made by Shanna Noel and can be found on her blog here. For the third collage with the arrow photos I just used PSE. I opened up an empty 4x6 file and used the ruler to line up the two photos. 

That gorgeous diamond paper on page number six is from Lifelovepaper. If you hury hurry hurry you can get yours too!

Merry Christmas friends!

PL December

It took me the longest time to be happy with this spread. I needed to add lots of white because the photos were so dark, like they are in December in Sweden. It took me three days od adding and subtracting to come up with this.

I used the SC Cuppa PL kit plus printables from SC and Paislee Press. The library card with my daughter's list for Santa is from Bananafish Studio.
