Hi Pebbles Friends!
Welcome back for more Christmas inspiration!
Amanda here, & this week’s theme post is all about documenting a Christmas Tradition in your ‘home’ country. For those of you who don’t know, I’m an Aussie girl and spend most of my days at the beach! And Christmas is no exception! But before we get to the big day, we have quite a few traditions that we like to participate in. The festive season doesn’t officially start for us until the Christmas Pageant (think Christmas Parade ) has occurred. So, for today’s post, I am documenting my children participating in the Christmas Pageant. Yay!
Here’s my layout…..
Isn’t this the sweetest?! Such a bright, happy & adorable page! So.much.fun!
Best part? It’s super simple and easy to recreate – here’s how….
Start by trimming the reverse side of pattern paper Tis The Season (candy cane stripes) on an angle. I made my paper strip 3″ at the widest end and 2″ at the shortest point. Attach to the top of the white cardstock background. Repeat this process, but this time use the candy canes pattern of Tis The Season, and reduce all measurements by one inch. Layer over the top of the stripes paper & glue into place (as shown above).
Take your square photograph, and tuck a Cozy & Bright Tag beneath it. Add a a few layers of torn white tissue wrap to the back of the tag. This torn paper adds both dimension and interest to the photo cluster.
Foam mount the photo cluster onto the top right hand side of the layout, & embellish with a few Die Cuts.
I just adore that cookies n cocoa Santa – so super cute!
Embellish with more Die Cuts, as well as some fabulous 6″ x 12 ” Accent Stickers.
Add a 1/2″ trim of pattern paper, Tis The Season (reverse side) to the very base of the page.
Embellish with those amazing Decorative Brads.
Add some Puffy Stickers – they make everything look awesome!
Create your title (& xo subtitles) with the Cozy & Bright Maggie Thickers. So cool! Love these amazing candy cane print alphas!
Build on your title work with a Decorative Brad!
Continue to embellish with stickers, brads and die cuts until your happy!
And Voila! An adorable page that is oh-so easy to create!
Here’s a few close ups for you……
And there you have it! Cozy & Bright – perfect for documenting the Festive Season!
I hope I’ve inspired you to get creating with this amazing new line!
Happy Holidays, Friends!
