Despite all of the adorable Christmas themed papers, stickers, and embellishments out there, sometimes I just can't find what I am looking for. That little element that will make my page complete. And when that happens-I have to get resourceful. More often than not, I just make them myself! :)I created this little tree embellishment using a bunch of tiny epoxy Christmas trees and red buttons from my stash-I think it turned out pretty cute.
Supplies: Cloud 9 Design patterned paper and stickers, Recollections epoxy Christmas tree stickers, buttons
I created this fun layout in about 30 minutes at my friend Christie's house this week. Christie is fairly new to scrapbooking so I wanted to show her my process for designing layouts. I used the Making Memories Mistletoe line for this layout about Jackson's Christmas party at school.
It still needs a little journaling but I'm really happy with how it turned out.
Supplies: Making Memories Mistletoe paper, stickers and die-cuts, Bazzill dotted swiss cardstock
I still have a ton of the Mistletoe line left-the only thing I didn't like about it was that the alphabet die cuts weren't self-adhesive as I had expected them to be. I just used my trusty Martha Stewart glue pen to get them adhered but the project was a little messier than I had planned. (Am I the only one that ends up a sticky mess each time I use a glue pen?)
Check back later this week when I'll share a finished layout using the Bazzill In Stitchz tool and a layout with some of the prettiest Basic Grey paper I've ever worked with!
