Hope that everyone had a safe and Happy New Years! I spent a quite night at home, curled up on the couch watching movies. I just finished this layout, which will be the first page in my Christmas album. I am so far behind on my pictures that I made the decision to have separate albums for certain events. I have a garden album, Halloween album, Fall album and a Christmas Album. The last yearly album I worked on and finished was for the year 2003. So you can see I am very far behind.
This is the first time I have used papers from Graphic 45. I have seen so many beautiful layouts on various message boards and blogs. I took the plunge and bought their Christmas line. I absolutely love it. I was able to incorporate several embellishments that I had from K and Company on the layout.
The beautiful poinsettias are by Prima. The green leaves were a spray I bought at Michaels. I outlined the leaves with gold stickles. The dark red flowers I bought at Michaels last year. I added some gold and red stickles.
The little Magic Moments sign I have had for years. Don't even remember where I bought it. When I looked through my Christmas stash I found it and thought it was perfect for the page.
The Santa was a punch out from the Graphic 45 papers.
The Christmas Tree is a transparency by K and Company. I added a gold doily behind it.
The title was cut using Cricut Winter Woodland cartridge, using the shadow feature. I inked the edges with some moss green ink and added some red stickles. All of the ribbon I used I have had for awhile. Felt good to finally use some of it. I have tons of Christmas ribbon.
The photo corners are also by K & Company. I inked the edges with some gold ink and added some red flat back pearls and gold bling.
