Hey Pebbles Fans, are you ready for Christmas?
Can’t wait the lights, can’t wait the ginger breads, the chocolate, the tree… Oh, I’m ready for all. But more than anything else, I’m waiting for giving gifts.
This layout was inspired by my passion to give gifts and there’s a very long story behind the picture. As this post would grow way too long if I’d tell the whole story now, I’ll just say I didn’t know I was taking such precious pics when I took these shots couple Christmases ago and will focus now only for the scrapbooking part.
And literally the story IS behind the pic, I couldn’t fit it on the page so it’s written to the backside of the layout.
Last time I created a small Christmas mini book and today I’m using Merry Little Christmas, too. The mini book was easy to make, but trust me this layout is even easier!
Instead of using electricity or any other cutting machines, I created the background of this layout by punching away with one simple star punch. One star is about 1″ wide, so I punched a lot of stars. I used all green-ish patterned papers from Merry Little Christmas line and simply adhered the stars on white cardstock with foam dots.
Then, to give the layout some texture I added some thread on top, again keeping the tones on green. And then on top the photographs. First I was adding only the biggest photo, but soon I thought why not to add a row of smaller pics too. Seeing more faces of my sweet little girl makes the whole Christmas happiness even bigger!
Last phase of the creation process was to add watercolour drops here and there, a title and some embellishments.
Can’t wait to see what this Christmas brings!
