Lets "Deck the Halls" with a little bit of Christmas cheer. I'm not sure anyone can look at this layout and not smile at the cutest little Elves ever. This is the finished product.
I found the paper piecing pattern at My Scrap Chick. Couldn't resist them and the best part is it came in a bundle with a bunch more. Their names are Baxter and Bella, she has a whole series of patterns built around them. I imported them into my SCAL program, adjusted the size so the heads were almost 2 inches big and cut them out using my Cricut. The tree I guessed at resizing and then Cuddle bugged for extra dimension. I also decided to decorate the tree with some paper flowers.
Here's a close up of Bella. I just hand drew her eyes and the marks inside the bells. I didn't think they would cut well, nor did I want to try gluing them on. I highlighted some spots with a white gel pen and she was done.
Here's Baxter. He's actually wearing little overalls, so cute. Again I hand drew his eyes and the bells. I used some chalk on his cheeks and nose.
The title is my favorite font right now: CK Jolly Elf. It welds so nicely. The shadow-blackout feature in SCAL makes it easy to pop dot the words for a fantastic title. I added a few white gel pen details. Some simple stitching on my photo mats. Just a little touch that I think adds a lot.
I hope these two help put you in the holiday spirit. Let me know what you think. I'd love to hear from you.
Thanks for visiting.
