Handsome – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

Happy Thursday, everyone! I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog with another Christmas layout to share. For this page, I decided to go with a pic of my youngest son, Christian opening his first Christmas present. The previous year, he was just 6 months old, so he didn’t open his own gifts. 😉

If you don’t know this about me already, I’m a huge Webster’s Pages fan and have horrible hoarding tendencies with their products…I’m avidly working on breaking that habit, so you’ll be seeing a lot of WP projects over the next few months. lol Anyway, I went with the oldest Christmas papers of theirs that I have and made them fresh and current with some FABULOUS Creative Embellishments chipboard pieces! I just love how easy they are to incorporate into any project and totally make my page come to life. 😀

For this layout, I was also inspired by the Monday Mojo sketch at Flying Unicorn. Here’s what I came up with:

Merry Christmas – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog with a layout to share. This week, I decided to go with a Christmas layout of my daughter, Madison. These photos were taken on Christmas two years ago and she was excited to receive so many dolls. Even her brothers got her dolls that year since she’d dropped us all so many hints about what she’d wanted. lol To create my page, I cut apart several of the Creative Embellishments chippies and altered them with gesso, acrylic paint, Distress paint and stains. I was also inspired by the inspiration photo at Scrap Around the World and the Monday Mojo sketch at Flying Unicorn. Here’s what I came up with:
