CHRISTMAS MAGIC | with Guest Designer Sophie Delorme

"I'm Sophie Delorme, a French Canadian girl living in Quebec!
I work as an endocrinologist in Montreal and am the mother of two beautiful kids, Sabrina and Gabriel. Oh, and we also have a sweet dog named Fiona, which is very often on my photos!
I started scrapbooking nearly 15 years ago and have been hooked since day one! I  mostly do 12x12 layouts and LOVE to play with patterned papers, punches, cut files, mixed media products and embellishments! 
I feel so honored to be guest designing this month for Doodlebug! Their bright colored collections and oh so cute embellishments are absolute delights to play with!"

This is the first layout I created with the gorgeous Christmas Magic collection.

I started by cutting triangles in different sizes from the patterned papers and built a Christmas tree as the major focus on the left side of my page. I added plenty of little notes that came from the die cut cardstock pieces and put them on the Christmas tree in a tone-on-tone manner. My title comes from the die cuts and beautiful presents from the cardstock stickers and one Doodle-Pop Dimensional Sticker.

I applied watercolor paint behind and around my photo and a few splatters on white cardstock as my base. Then, I embellished with some other Christmas tree die cuts and beautiful presents from the Cardstock stickers and one Doodle-pop Dimensional sticker.

Finally, I cut a stripe of my white background to show a little bit of the "Deck-The-Halls" patterned paper, machine-stitched on two sides of my page with pink thread and teared a part of my white cardstock to bring out a few other embellishments.

My second layout shows some funny selfies of me and my daughter Sabrina, laughing together next to our Christmas tree. I started by tearing a big chunk of the beautiful Christmas Magic Visions Of Sugarplums patterned paper for the upper side of my page, and did a little bit of mixed media on my white cardstock under it. I used a cut file called “Awning” from the Cream & Sugar Doodlebug Collection on red and white cardstock, slightly curled up the edges and hand-stitched between the cut file and a stripe of the Berry Merry patterned paper on top of my page.

I used a cut file called “Awning” from the Cream & Sugar Doodlebug Collection on red and white cardstock, slightly curled up the edges and hand-stitched between the cut file and a stripe of the Berry Merry patterned paper on top of my page. I cut out three tags from the Christmas Tag paper and tucked them behind my photos, adding a red bow to each of them. My title comes from the Chit Chat Die cut cardstock pieces. I added a few hearts around my photos and three Christmas ornaments from the Doodle-Pops Deck the Hall Cardstock Stickers. I totally love the result of those tags and the striped awning on my page!

I also did a little cluster on embellishments on the right lower side of my page where I put the Candy Stripe Washi tape and plenty of beautiful cardstock stickers and die cut pieces.

My third layout is clean and simple, although so cute, with my daughter and our dog playing in the snow! I started with a white background (which I usually do, as you can see !) as my base.

I cut a vertical stripe of the Jolly St. Nick patterned paper for the left side of my page. I stuck a blue scalloped border (This and That 12 x 12 Cardstock stickers) on it, as well as a stripe of the Candy Stripe Washi tape. I also punched a bow from that beautiful washi tape that I first stuck on white cardstock. My goodness, how cute is this??!? Then, I painted a part of my background with blue, green and pink watercolor, mimicking a small snow bank, and added white splatters with acrylic paint.

I used a cut file called “A Tree With Snow” from the Christmas Town Doodlebug collection (so gorgeous again !) and put some other cute Christmas trees around my photo from the Die Cut Cardstock Pieces.

I stuck speech bubbles on my photo and attached a beautiful banner from the Chit Chat Die Cut Cardstock pieces on the top of the layout. I also glued the die cut “A Christmas to remember” on a sticker wreath and stamped the year 2019 on it.

Finally, I wrote my journaling and added plenty of enamel shapes from the Shape Sprinkles Holly and Pine here and there on my page.

And now, here is my fourth layout playing with this magical collection ! It features Sabrina baking cookies, a precious Christmas tradition in our family! I cut out about half an inch of my white cardstock and framed it on the yellow Christmas Magic patterned paper and on brown cardstock, stitching around it with white thread.

I punched big hearts with my heart punch in the various patterned papers and arranged them in three rows. I stitched around each heart with matching color thread and slightly distressed the edges. I added a bit of watercolor under each heart in the same color scheme and backed all the hearts with foam adhesive to give my layout more dimension. I had to use the cute gingerbread cookies for that cookie-themed layout! They are from the Odds and Ends Die Cut Cardstock pieces. I created a little banner with them on the top right side of my page.

My title and the speech bubbles are from the Chit Chat Die Cut Cardstock Pieces. I finished my layout by adding a cluster of embellishments on the bottom of my page and a few scattered candies and enamel shapes around my page.

I truly love the end-result of those pages. I hope you do too and that it will inspire you to get crafty with all the cuteness included in the Doodlebug collections!

Thank you so much to Doodlebug for inviting me to be guest designing this month and giving me the privilege to share my layouts with you! -Sophie
