Echo Park Paper: Joy Layout

Christmas morning can be chaotic with the excitement of opening gifts and wrapping paper flying everywhere. My kids don’t like waiting, but I have learned to snap a few photos of each of them in front of their presents before we begin so that *I* can enjoy the moment, too.

I was so excited last year when I found my three daughters matching traditional plaid Christmas nightgowns. I thought they might balk that the nightgowns were a little old-fashioned with the eyelet lace around the collar, but they actually ended up loving them! My oldest daughter even got a bit emotional because she said they reminded her of when she was little.
The plaid pajamas in the photos was my starting point for this layout and so I looked for a line with plaid in it to scrapbook these photos. I immediately pulled out the Echo Park Paper “I Love Christmas” collection with it’s red and green color scheme … and that darling red plaid patterned paper.

At the top of the page I created my own snowflake embellishments using my manual die cut machine and several Echo Park Paper Dies. I cut different styles of snowflakes and added them to die cut stitched circle shapes. The center of each snowflake is accented with an I Love Christmas decorative brad.

I added two more of the handmade snowflake embellishments to the bottom left corner of the photos, as well.
The elf and JOY letters were cut from the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper. I added the title letters to a die cut Stitched Label Shape, and then accented it with the elf and several stickers from the 12×12 Element Sticker Sheet.

I love that cute little elf so much! He just has a sweet, magical feel about him! Perfect for a page about Christmas Morning!
