Echo Park Paper: All the Trimmings!

Just like you trim the tree with ornaments each year … why not trim your scrapbook layout with them, too! Hi, Everyone! I’m back with a holiday page using the Echo Park Paper Celebrate Christmas collection.

I wanted to do something extra special on this page and when I saw the ornaments of the Deck the Halls paper I just knew I had to cut them out and “hang” them from the top of my layout.
I cut them out with a pair of fine-tipped scissors and then used white crochet twine attached to the back to make them look like they are dangling from the top edge of the page. I few of the ornaments are adorned with white twine bows and holly leaves die cut from the green shades of the Coordinating Solid Papers using the Merry Christmas Holly Die Set.

Santa himself is declaring a “Merry Christmas” at the bottom of this page. The Merry Christmas title was also created using the Merry Christmas Holly Die Set. Additional Chipboard Accents and Stickers accent the center line in between the two photos.

Santa looked lonely all by himself, so I added a pair of birds (sticker and chipboard) to the right of the banner title to keep him company!

The black enamel dots placed here-and-there around the page add the extra special touch!

Carta Bella Paper: Christmas Eve Scrapbook Page

If there is one thing that gets me excited for Christmas each year, it is seeing the new Christmas collections by Echo Park Paper and Carta Bella Paper! The Carta Bella Paper Christmas collection was the perfect match for this photo of my kids sporting their Christmas jammies last Christmas Eve.

I used the 4×6 Journaling Cards paper for the background of this page. I LOVE this pattern! I wanted it to fade out a little bit around the page elements, so I used my finger to smudge white gesso around the paper layers, but left the outer edges uncovered.

I used the “Christmas” letter stickers from the Sticker Sheet combined with a die cut “merry” word for the title. The title is anchored by strips of patterned paper cut from the Gift Tags paper (green text pattern) and the Border Strips paper. I also added a few die cut snowflakes (Celebrate Christmas – Christmas Day Snow Die Set) accented with the decorative brads.

I added my journaling to a block cut from the 4×4 Journaling Cards paper and then decorated the spaces to the left and below with Chipboard Accents, a die cut stocking (Santa Stocking Die Set), and Stickers.
(Sidenote: The packaging for the Santa Stocking Die Set doesn’t show a piece to create the cuff of the stocking, but it does actually come with one … so three dies total … just in case you were wondering! 🙂 )

American Crafts: Throwing It Back to Christmas

I’m throwing it back to the Christmas season today with one more page created with the American Crafts Sweater Weather collection.  I had lots of fun with punched snowflakes on this one!

I love creating title with multiple sets of letter stickers. On this one I used the gold Joyous Thickers, blue Maggie Thickers, and some old red tile letter stickers by Adornit. I added some fussy cut flowers from the January Blossoms paper and a die cut pair of mittens, that look as thought it is hanging off of the title!

I put my snowflake punches to work on this page, creating a cascade of them down the center of the page. I placed a black gem in the center of each one for some sparkle and shine.

I also mixed in a bit of Dollar Tree gold holographic tape on this page for a fun border. I wanted a bit more of it at the bottom of the page, so I placed a length of tape on a scrap of white cardstock and punched it with a scalloped border punch to underscore the cluster of winter wear die cuts.

This was a really fun page to create! Have you given your punches a work out lately?

Christmas Catchup: Part 2 of 2

Happy Sunday, friends! I’m back with part 2 of my Christmas Catchup post.

Yesterday, I mentioned that I am never able to get very much holiday scrapping done during the holidays … because let’s face it … there are a gazillion other things going on that month! LOL!

So, in an effort to not keep falling behind I made a goal with myself to do as much as possible this year, as I could steal a minute or two.

Yesterday, I shared with you three double-page layouts that I created this season … and today I have two single page layouts. One created with a brand new collection from this year (Carta Bella Paper’s A Very Merry Christmas collection) and another one using up items from my stash!

Here we go!

TINSEL RAIN

I do not use tinsel on our Christmas trees, but I couldn’t resist using that cute typography on this page as a title! It’s just so vintage and wonderful … like EVERYTHING in the amazing Carta Bella Paper A Very Merry Christmas collection.

I mean, look at these ornaments!!! Do they not just capture your heart right off the bat and take you to yesteryear?! LOVE them!

The starting point for this page, is that darling Santa cut from the Santa’s List paper. I had initially cut him out for another project where I scored the right side of him. I scored him in the wrong place and had to use another sheet for that other project, but I couldn’t let that cute Santa go to waste … so I decided I needed to add him to a page.

The dies that Echo Park/Carta Bella create are outstanding and I love to use them on my projects every chance that I get! I mean … look at the cute detail of the layer with the holly vein for the leaves! I used the Evergreen Shimmer cardstock along with the Classic Green Felt and Scarlet Red Felt Designer cardstocks to create this little cluster.

BELIEVE

I loved creating this next layout … it was just one of those that flowed as I sifted through several bits that I had leftover from a Noel Mignon Christmas kit from a few years back. I combined those bits with some “oldies, but goodies” still in my stash … and just had fun creating!

My girls are so tiny in these pictures. They had just gotten out of the bath and were all snuggly in their jammies and fuzzy robes. A Christmas show was on TV and the two little sisters cuddled up together in the chair to watch. It still warms my heart to look at these pictures and takes me right back to that cozy night!

Loving the look of all of the patterned papers stacked up together here with just a little bit from each one peeking out. … And how cute is that deer die cut from Pretty Little Studio! I love vintage artwork like that!
