Holiday Tradition layout by designer Patty Folchert

We have some wonderful family traditions around the holidays and making a gingerbread house and decorating Christmas cookies is one of those special days we look forward to every year at my parent’s house.  This layout using the new Jillibean Soup-Holly Berry Borscht collection captures our holiday tradition perfectly. 


I just couldn’t decide on one of the new stamp tags so I picked four of my favs. Then I stamped them in charcoal gray onto white cardstock. Next I began to build the layout with papers from the Holly Berry Borscht collection staggered with the two photos as shown. I also have been dying to try the new Mix the Media stencils, so I added the “happy” one into my title using a cats eye  ink in green. I really love the added effect of the stencil to the title. The rest of the title was created with a wise word sticker and green alphabean stickers. Then I wanted to add some stitched texture, so with the sewing machine I stitched along several borders as shown. Then the tags were cut out, given ribbon tabs and added with 3D pop up dots. Last several wood embellishments were added, stars and snowflake. Another ribbon was added under the title block.


Capture one of your favorite holiday traditions with this layout, the grid pattern makes it quick and easy. Do you have a favorite holiday tradition? We would love to hear about it, please comment below.

Holiday Magic Awaits,
