Christmas Magic Moments


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.



Down along the right hand side of the layout I adhered a Christmas die cut border by K & Company.
