Chic Tags 12 Days of Crafty Cheer | Day #9

Hello and welcome to Day #9 of Chic Tags Twelve Days of Christmas! 
It's Janine here to share a layout I created using the Christmas Cheer Exclusive Kit

When this kit arrived here I couldn't stop but start 'yaying' loud!
It is so beautiful! I love that it has all the traditional colors, but with a modern twist. :)

What jumped first into my eyes has been the 'Naughty/Nice' card, I adore it. It is so cheeky, so fun, so happy and though it is modern it shouts out Christmas too. I knew I had to create a layout with it! For this layout I decided to emboss tiny triangles on the white cardstock that I wanted to use as a base.

On this photo you can see my son (again, I know) making one of his cheeky faces he used to make so so often. They're still there, but now that he is 12 it gets less each day. But when I saw that card I immediately thought of his faces.

 I love all the wood veneers, die cuts and flairs that come with that exclusive kit. I had to stop myself overdoing it, because I just wanted to use all the cute embellishments on one layout.

 I love those red acrylic stars, aren't they perfect?

I cut the title out of a glassine bag, where part of the embellishments have been sent, stitched over it with my sewing machine, but without the thread. I thought that would look quite interesting.

Thanks so much for looking and be sure to stop by tomorrow for Day #10!
Have a wonderful day! :)
