December Freaky Fast Formula ~ Designer Grace Tolman

Hi everyone!
It's reveal day for the 
December Freaky Fast Formula

Combining the formula with the 
Doodlebug “Christmas Magic” Page Kit
one of the four kits included in this month's 
Designer Grace Tolman
created the beautiful page below
"Handmade Cheers"
"This is my page for the FFF challenge this month. Although the FFF measurements are supposed to make the process go fast, this page did not go easily for me. I had a hard time moving the papers around to my liking. It wasn’t fitting with my current style. I even had to cheat and cut out some ¼” strips of red paper to create a border around my white cardstock.
But after some moving around, I found my right formula for these papers and this is the page that I came up with. This just shows you that sometimes we need to be stretched and pulled out of our comfort zone in our creative pursuits.
I also had the hardest time finding a title. After many changes, I finally settled with some glittered pink alphas from my stash and a die cut from the collection.
My favorite part of this page was the gingerbread house. I brushed some glitter pen on parts of the house. You can’t see the glitter on it because it’s so subtle but I love how it turned out."
Personal stash items used: 
Date stamp (Studio Calico); Ink (Hybrid Ink My Favorite Things, Distress Ink); Letters (My Little Shoebox); Circle die (My Favorite Things); Corner rounder (EK Success); Glitter pen (Tonic Studios)

Inspired and want to try this month's formula,

Heidi Swapp "Winter Wonderland" Page Kit Inspiration

Happy Thursday!

Today we have wonderful layouts to share with you!

Here's what our designers created using the

Grace Tolman
"Together Again"
Grace said this about her layout:
"The papers in this collection are really pretty and were the perfect group of products to document a story that was very special to me. The lady that is photographed with my family is like a grandmother to me and little did we know that this event will be the last one that we would see her alive. 
I matted my photos to make it stand out against the background. I actually gutted the center of my background cardstock so that I can perfectly match my photo matting with the cardstock that I’ve already used for the background. And no one is the wiser since the page is covered with pattern paper. 
I love handcutting those beautiful papers in this collection. They were so elegant and matched the theme of the page."

Grace said this about her layout:
"I love all the beautiful embellishments in this kit. I did have a hard time getting my adhesive not to show through the vellum embellishmnets so I mounted them on white cardstock. I ended up still liking that look as it really popped them off the page!! I though a hint of gold would just really set off these beautiful papers so I added just a few gold enamel dots from my stash & loved the look! 
From my stash: white cardstock and gold enamel dots"

Lisa said this about her layout:
"I loved the bright nontraditional colors of this line! These pictures were a bit dark but the tree in the background was so pretty and I didn't want to not scrap them. These bright vibrant colors were perfect for helping to lighten these dark pictures! The playful embellishments are perfect for pictures of little ones & I love that the cut apart tags are double sided making them so versatile! 
From my stash: Thicker letter stickers"

"Most Wonderful Time of the Year"
Grace said this about her layout:
"I really liked the papers from this collection but I also knew that it has a high possibility of overpowering my two photos. So to have a “happy” medium, I created circles from the papers, distressed the edges and placed them on the blue cardstock. I also matted my photos with brown cardstock to make them stand out even more. And the last way that I made sure that the photos still stood out was placing it in the center of the page. 
The blue cardstock felt like it was missing something so I decided to splatter some white paint on it. This is not my norm but I’ve been watching a lot of YouTube videos about Christmas cards and I’ve seen this trick done with darker backgrounds and decided to try it out here. I love how we can get different techniques from other papercrafting hobbies. 
The sticker sheet helped me create the title and added the final touches for this page

"Merry Christmas 2018"

Heather said this about her layout:
"Using the Carta Bella Merry Christmas kit, I decided to rip the edges to add some texture to this page. I placed my picture a little lower then all the patterned paper to pull the focus to the picture and then added a couple of embellishment clusters, as well as the title and journaling to surround the picture. I added the number stickers from my stash."
