Christmas Scrapbook Page with IO and Cheery Lynn

I'm seriously in love with using banners on my pages. For this page I used a pretty green and white polka dot paper along with a Christmas paper that had a burlap text look to it. I cut the burlap in triangles for the banner. I added the IO Bow die in burgundy and pearl accents to the centers of the bows. I embossed the burgundy photo squares with a poinsettia embossing folder and inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink. I finished off the page by adding a coordinating poinsettia cut with the Cheery Lynn poinsettia die. The center is a Candi dot!

Impression Obsession Christmas Card

To make this card I used the IO lacey edge die on two sides of  my 5.5 x 4.25 white paper. Then I cut a section out of the middle with a Spellbinders A2 layering die. I popped this up over white cardstock. I cut pine bough from IO out and attached to corner. I made a bow out of burgundy ginham ribbon. The birds are cut from the Cheery Lynn Chickadee die and embellished with Copic markers.
I'd love to get this card for Christmas!

Windows Die for Down Home Christmas Card

I used the Memory Box Window die to make this sweet card! The tree is by IO. I layered the coordinating colored papers to make this pop then finished the window by weaving crocheted ribbon through a strip of brown paper and then attaching above the window with brads to resemble a window valance! Super cute!

Memory Box, Impression Obsession and Spellbinders Oh My!

This color combination always reminds me of an outfit a friend of mine had in high school. Teal blue and red. Red cardstock is used for the card base, then layered with a teal cardstock. I used this red snowflake pattnderned paper and cut out a Spellbinders Labels 18 out of the center. I layered it over a lovely teal polka dot paper and inserted cream IO Deer Trio. I used the Memory Box Garland Greenery in the right corner and teal ribbon along the bottom. I added red polka dot Candi dots in the greenery to resemble holly berries.

Christmas Scrapbook page

Christmas will be here before we know it! Here is a page I whipped up the other day to get ahead of the Christmas rush! I wanted to use something that was different from the traditional reds and greens and think this paper fit the bill!

I used coordinating papers to make this 2 photo layout. I left room in the upper right for journaling (or a photo) They are hard to see by I have vellum snowflakes with stickles on them accenting the page as wel as the tree and fence. Photo areas are embossed with dots and tied with matching ribbon . Simple and Sweet!

Memory Box Country Fence Oval Frame

Some people look at this die and see a road. I looked at it and saw a river. A frozen river, I had to turn this into a Christmas card! I cut the die out in white card stock and mounted it on white. I used crystal stickles to accent the river and hills of snow. I added blue Mirricard under the white cardstock and also cut out the greetings from it! Simple and elegant!
