First Christmas Layout

Hi Everyone,

Two posts in two days, and I had some time today to complete a tag and make half a card!  Today’s layout was made for the Get It Scrapped article  about translating crafts onto your scrapbook pages.  There are some great layouts by the creative team with some different techniques to try.

I am still loving the whole tone on tone look and I frequently like to use white card as a base for my pages so for this layout I combined the two.  I was inspired by the craft of quilting and created some panels using white card and some embossing folders by sizzix.  I machine stitched on the panels (this is much easier to do before you adhere them to the 12×12 card)  I didn’t want my background to make a perfect quilt so just staggered the panels when I adhered them.  This adds interest but not so much as to detract from my photograph.

The colour scheme was taken from the photograph and I added in a bit of gold to add to the christmas feel.  I have had the little bells in my stash and they were perfect for this layout (they even jingle!)  It made me feel slightly better about holding on to some things (I am not a huge hoarder though).

I was also inspired by the craft of jewellery making and I happened to come across some wire that I have also had for a while.  I decided to have a go at creating some embellishments for my layout and twisted the wire to create part of my title.  This took a little patience but wasn’t too hard.  I added a few gold beads to the christmas tree too.  If you have any questions just leave me a comment.

Thanks for stopping by,
