Serious Santa | Tis The Season | Tarrah McLean

Hi there Cocoa Vanilla fans!

Happy December!! It’s Tarrah McLean back with you today! I decided that the Tis the Season Christmas collection needed to make a come back for one of my December projects! Even though this collection is a year old, I still LOVE it and its perfect for layouts, gifts, cards…any type of festive project! The Tis the Season collection is on sale in the online store right now for 40% off if you want to get yourself some of this beautiful collection!


I was going through lots of photos this week and came across some fun Christmas ones of my eldest son from a couple of years ago, I made him put the Santa hat on and of course he had to pull some strange faces while wearing it! Tis The Season is a very traditional Christmas collection, photos like these fun ones are still great to use with traditional colours and products!


I just adore those Poinsettia flowers and the berry stems found in the ephemera pack! I made a cluster to frame the bottom of my photo by popping them up with some foam tape. I embellished my layout further using the accessory stickers, wood veneer, flair buttons, enamel dots, sequins, lucky charms and enamel stars.


For my title, I used the alphabet stickers from the collection for the word ‘Serious’ and I cut the Santa word using my Silhouette Cameo! I finished the layout by adding some mist and machine stitching to the outside edges.

Thank so much for stopping by the Cocoa Vanilla blog today!

Happy creating!

Tarrah x
