We have a joyfully pretty Christmas themed Mood Board this time around, created by Jot Girl Raquel Bowman. Filled with sparkles, pretty pastels an buttons and bows. We move away from the more traditional Christmas colours to give you this pretty pastel collection of colours and textures.

Let’s see what some of our team members have put together using Raquel’s Mood Board
Raquel says, “This layout was inspired very much by the colours on the mood board. I also used elements of the decorative pearls and strings from image 4. I added the slightest touch of the green in the leaves, to tie in with the pretty pink and blue and the glitter elements on my page. This image was taken of Charlotte on Christmas morning holding one of her gifts. I think Christmas is a time for thinking about and valuing what you have by spending time with those closest to you. She really is the greatest gift myself and hubby could ever receive and for that we are so blessed and grateful.”

Wendy says, ” really loved the play on soft colors in this mood board different than the typical Christmas colors of red, green, and gold. I added in the pop of green to bring in a surprise element and element of the tree in the board to my layout. The snowflake shaped cookies inspired my use of the various snowflakes on my layout in different textures of resin, wood, and the glittery. The mini cookie cutter shapes really were a lucky stash find to include on my layout and perfect to coordinate in with the rest of project. The photo of my mom and my fiancé were the focus of my layout in the theme they are the “twinkle” in my life…and the true gifts in my life of peace, joy, and love. ”

Lauren says, “This is such a pretty mood board Raquel. Love it!”
Anna says, “I gathered a combination of papers in the colouring of this mood board and then chose the photo I wanted to use on the layout. I wanted the photo to stand out but not so much that it dominated the entire page – I found that this photo with the sunlight filtering in on the edge added to the soft, flowy, dreamy feel I wanted for the layout so that was it!! I had quite a few different patterned papers and I loved ALL of them so I decided to go with a tiled look so that I could incorporate them all. And I am quite happy with the result :-)”
Kim says, “I wanted to celebrate the special friendship I have with my bff.”
Mardi says, “It was lovely to scrap Christmas in colours other than red and green.”
Sheree says, “This was such a pretty colour combination to work with and it was fun to step away from the traditional red/green Christmas colours too.”
Sharmaine says, “Well, this pushed me out of my colour comfort zone and I survived!!! Thanks Raquel for an awesome palette to work with. I enjoyed it 🙂
I created a page documenting the first time we walked our new dog. He was a stray, from the Dogs Home, so we didn’t know how he would go with a lead. Thankfully he loves going for walks.”
