Catch the Moments Design Team Work

Happy Monday everyone! I hope that everyone had a great weekend and is having a great start to their week. I have a lot of fun stuff to share this week, including my new adventures with knitting! I'm already well on my way to knitting a scarf - in two colors - no less! I will share pictures about that in the next couple of days... Today, I'm sharing a blog post that was on the Catch the Moments blog last week. I made these two fun layouts using a couple of the kits that Devon has put together... So, without further ado, here we go...

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...

Lovely layouts! Love your stitching over the ornaments! I have Jovial in my stash, just have to decide what to scrap from Christmas! Stay warm and safe through this next storm - we're in for 10-15 inches, they say!
