Merry & Bright 2 page Christmas Layout!


On Friday night my daughter Christy came over to visit and do a bit of scrapbooking. We had no ideal what we were going to do until I found a wonderful sketch challenge over at Cricut Cutter Room. So we both decided it was time to start our Christmas layouts for this year.

I used My Minds Lost and Found Christmas paper for the layouts and the pictures really do not do it justice, it is very dull and gloomy out today but I wanted to get it on before the challenge was over
 I followed the sketch for the picture mattes and then added a few little extras to spruce it up a bit. The Crinkled Ribbon is from My Craft Spot.
The camel and donkey are embossed with Hounds Tooth and Swiss Dots embossing folders using my cuttlebug.
This is the second page of the layout. I used Winter Frolic to make the cuts of the animals and shepard.
The Angel was cut from Christmas Noel.
 I embossed the lamb with D'Vine Swirls also using my cuttlebug. This is a picture of the sketch we were to use. All in all we had a very enjoyable evening, it is always so much more fun to scrap when you have someone to share your passion with. Hope you enjoyed my project for today.
Have a great week!
