Are you ready for Santa to come down your chimney in a few days? Have you made or bought your favorite Christmas cookie to share with him?
My page today is about our family’s tradition of baking gingerbread cookies every year.
I used both of the December Noel Mignon Oh What Fun kits on this page, pulling out the whimsical elements and using a cheery color scheme of pink, red, green, white, and tan … the colors of a gingerbread house!
The puffy stickers from the kit kind of remind me of piped icing on a fancy Christmas cookie with their shiny, squishy appearance. I made sure to sprinkle lots of those cute puffy stickers around the page.
I cut the two gingerbread people from a 3×4 cut apart journal card from the Holly Jolly collection by Pebbles. I created a little candy cluster with them next to the title pairing them with the candy cane die cut. The candy cane is accented with two punched holly leaves, using my favorite Holly Berry Builder punch by Stampin’ Up.
The brown accent color gets sprinkled in two other places around the page to form a visual triangle … the brown wood veneer shape at the top of the page …
… and the cute reindeer die cut shape accenting the journal block.
I had so much fun adding all kinds of little bits on this page! My kids may like to enjoy decorating gingerbread cookies … but scrapbook pages are more *MY* speed. Hehe!
