Oh Christmas Tree

Hey everyone. Got a layout for you based on three different challenges. At Scrap the Boys, the challenge was to use a picture of a multi-colored Christmas tree as inspiration. At The Studio Challenges, you were to use things that sparkled and shined. I also used the December 15th sketch at Stuck?!Sketches. From the picture I decided to go with a Christmas theme and to use a tree as a focal point on my page, which fit in perfectly with the sketch. For the sparkle and shine, I used tinsel color shine and strips of pattern paper that had a bit of glitter on it. I used an older collection from My Mind's Eye called 'Joyous'. I had several rolls of washi tape belonging to this line, so I decided to create a tree with them. It turned out quite well I think. I fussy cut the Santa and bluish snowflakes, as well as the small strips of paper with a glittery border. The photo is of my grandson getting his first look at a Christmas tree. Pretty sweet!! Below are some close ups and the assorted challenges. Thanks for stopping by.

Bundle Up

Hey everyone. Merry Christmas !!! It's hard to believe that this is the last challenge of the year. I have really enjoyed being on the Scrap Our Stash design team and look forward to the new challenges coming next year. The pattern paper, enamel dots, ephemera and stickers used, were all from Echo Park Paper's 'A Perfect Winter'. For the word portion of this challenge I used the following items from my stash:

P : pattern paper
E : embossing powder (snowflakes)
A : acrylic paint (splatters)
C : circle punch
E : enamel dots, ephemera, element stickers

Below are some close ups and the challenge. Thanks for stopping by and and stay tuned for some interesting challenges coming in the New Year.

Love at First Sight

Hey everyone. I can’t believe we have come to the December challenges at Scrap Our Stash!! My how time flies!!! For this month’s tic tac toe challenge I picked the bottom row: frame, the color green and sequin. I used Maggie Holmes' 'Carousel' collection from Crate Paper.  I absolutely love this photo of my niece and grandson, when he was just one day old. Definitely love at first sight!!
