I want to take this opportunity to thank Cindy for agreeing to Guest Design for us. We hope her work inspired you during this busy holiday season!
Here's Cindy to tell you about her last project ... a Christmas layout!
In the Tobey house we normally have good intentions to put our tree up right after Thanksgiving, however it somehow always gets pushed into December. Not this year! We actually put our tree up and even decorated it the day after Thanksgiving! I thought it would be fun to create a scrapbook page with just a few photos to mark the occasion.
Celebrate Christmas layout Supplies:
Christmas Village Paper (WO-109)
Christmas Text Paper (WO-102)
Dots on Green Paper (WO-104)
Canvas Tape Roll (WO-222)
Stick Pins (WO-277)
Corrugated Shapes (WO-276)
Chipboard Mini Frames Photo Ornaments (WO-221)
Chipboard Stickers Words (WO-165)
Cardstock Stickers Favorite Pieces (WO-135)
The Chipboard and Corrugated ornament shapes are perfect for pages about Christmas tree decorating! I was going to use all three Chipboard Ornament Frames for photos but then thought it would be fun to add a dimensional paper ball embellishment to one of them instead.
I love the fun pop of dimension it adds to my page! If you want to keep the dimensional aspect once it’s placed in your album, simply cut a circular hole in your page protector for the paper ball to come through. The embellishment will act like a mini pop-up in your album!
- Punch 6 circles from patterned paper. I punched 1 ¼” circles.
- Fold each circle in half. If you want the colors to alternate, make sure to fold half with green on the inside and half with red on the inside.
- Take two circles (one green and one red) and adhere them back to back.
- Continue adhering the rest of the circles, alternating colors as you go. Add finished paper ball to your layout.
I love the pop up ball, don't you? So cute!
