It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Here’s a perfect layout to use for some of your holiday photos. It’s a simple technique that delivers a beautiful dimensional impact. I used the very lovely Nodic Winter Collection from Creative Memories for my layout.
The only tool needed is a 12-Inch Trimmer! If you’re in the market for a new trimmer, please check our the 12-Inch Trimmer from Creative Memories. In my 25+ years of scrapbooking, it’s the best trimmer that I’ve seen. Cut a few triangles, fold a few and layer to create this beatiful tree embellishment!

I used Avocado Cardstock and Nordic Winter Papers for my layout. I embellished using Nordic Winter Embellishments, Stickers and a Variety Mat. Make sure to check out the Nordic Winter Embellishments – they’re gorgeous and include several deer pieces.
Please use this technique to create a layout and share a photo of your layout with me on Facebook in Karyn’s Croppers. Go to the Album section and add your photo to the #TechniqueTue 32 Album for an entry into my December Door Prize Drawing.
You may purchase the 12-Inch Trimmer and/or Nordic Winter Collection through my Creative Memories website link.
The Our Moments Collection is currently my favorite with Creative Memories! I adore the jewel tone color palette and the pretty laser borders, embellishments and stickers. Many of the sentiments and titles are family oriented, so it’s a great choice for your heritage photos. But the colors and patterns are really good for any type of photos!
To create my page, I turned to an older layout of mine for inspiration. I used the 12-Inch Trimmer to create elongated hexagon pieces using the 45-degree line. Please see my video for a step-by-step demo. While you’re on YouTube, please subscribe to my YouTube channel. As a subscriber, you will receive an email and notification whenever I post a new video. My channel will also appear in the Subscription area of the left sidebar on your YouTube homepage, so it will always be easy to find.
After I completed my video, I made some slight changes to my layout and moved two of the paper pieces and some of the cut laser borders. I also added an extra photo.
Below is my older layout that provided the inspiration for this new layout. On the video, I misspoke. I created this layout in 2018 with the old Archiver Collection from Creative Memories. Here’s a link to my original blog post. I used the old 12-Trimmer and created 60-degree angles for this version.
When cutting the hexagon pieces, you’ll end up with several leftover triangles. On my video, I offer a few different suggestions for using the triangles on another layout. Below is one of those ideas. I love how one technique creates unique pieces for 2 different layouts!
To create this layout, cut the purple paper to 11-1/2″ x 11-1/2″, and adhere to a sheet of Charcoal Cardstock. Adhere the top row of triangle pieces as shown and add the laser border. Adhere a second row of triangles. Just add photos and some stickers and embellishments to finish it!
The Elongated Hexagon Layout is my technique layout for the month of May. I would love to see your versions of it! Please share photos of your completed layouts in the #TechinqueTue 35 Album in my Facebook group, Karyn’s Croppers. Your photo will serve as your entry into my monthly door prize drawing. Create a second layout with your leftover triangle scraps for a second entry! I can’t wait to see what you create!
