Today will be the last day in the 4 part series of scrapping your 2016 Christmas Photos. If you need to check out the other layouts or find additional layouts for more photos, check out the 12″x12″ Scrapbooking Layouts Category.
This layout seems perfect for the end of the day photos as the house and those in it become tired and the day is setting. Peace settles in the day as Christmas day is almost a thing of the past for another year. Thoughts turn again to the blessed reason for the season in this period of calm.
Directions on how to recreate this layout:
- 12″x12″ Cherry Cobbler card stock was used for the base of the layout.
- This Christmas DSP from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog was cut to 11″x11″ and attached to the base card stock leaving 1″ margins on all sides.
- A piece of 1.75″x6.75″ Cherry Cobbler card stock was used for the banner. The banner edge was hand cut-To cut a banner end: Find the center of your card stock and cut up as far as you want your inner point. Then from each corner cut to that point at which your scissor cut stopped (two triangles, 1 from each cut-end to center-will drop out).
- 8.5″x8.5″ Cherry Cobbler card stock was used and attached 1/4″ from both bottom & right DSP edges.
- Four photo mats 4″x4″ were attached to the Cherry Cobbler square leaving 1/4″ margins.
- Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Garden Green, and Very Vanilla card stocks were used with the Pretty Pines Thinlets & Big Shot to create Greenery and Very Vanilla (base), Crumb Cake (inner layer), Early Espresso (outer layer) pine cones.
- Very Vanilla card stock was used to create the word “Peace” with the Christmas Greetings Thinlets dies & Big Shot- both from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.
I used two different adhesives (Stampin’ Up! Snail & the Fine Tip Glue Pen) to assemble and adhere this pine cone peace embellishment to itself and then to the layout. I did not completely attach each bit to the layout because I liked that it didn’t lie completely flat. However, when placing the final project in scrapbook sleeves that means being extra careful. You can see a small casualty in the pine sprig when I caught it in the sleeve and had a tear, losing part of one of the small tips. No one looking at my scrapbook will notice, of course, but I just want you to be careful as you handle these delicate pieces.
I hope you enjoyed this 4 day mini-series and got some inspiration or perhaps scrapped along with me and completed a few pages.
Something every old scrapbooker knows- these last 4 days pages are actually 2 double-sided pages in my book. So, I really only used 2 of the 12″x12″ Cherry Cobbler base pages in this 4 day series.
If you missed any of the last 3 days or wish to see two other layouts which match this 4 day series, which I posted some time before I decided to do a mini-series of my all my Christmas layouts for this year, look under the Categories tab for: 12″x12″ Scrapbooking Layouts.
The 6 layouts I designed with This Christmas DSP and matching card stock completed my 6 page Christmas 2016 photo spread this year. As I stated on day 1 of this 4 day series mine are already completed and in the book. I’ll be sharing how I did that with the help of my new Christmas toy- the Selphy cp1200 next week.
But first I want to show you a few samples & new toys Stampin’ Up! has coming up in the January 4 catalog(s).
Starting tomorrow, to end the year and kick off 2017, I’ll be posting a few samples I made using products which will be available very soon!
Until next time…
