Christmas Inspiration

Hi Ladies and welcome to Inspiration Wednesday. This week i would like to share with you some Christmas layouts that i created with some Websters pages. If you are anything like me then you take heaps of photos at Christmas time- there is always so many things to record- and never get around to scrapping all of them. I still have quite a stack to get through from last year so was secretly pleased when Adrienne sent me the Christmas inspiration kit! Afterall it is only just over 3 months to go till Christmas- it rolls around pretty fast - so i need to get all those photos done now before i have a new pile to do!

This first layout is of my second DD who at 5 (now 6) still believes in Santa. The girls are very lucky as Santa comes to our house for our annual Christmas party in December where the girls ask all their friends and school mates to come. Last year we had 40 kids! Santa arrives and hands out presents and we always get some great shots of the girls with Santa. ( Mainly because its actually their dad! Simon has been a professional Santa since he was 17- and has 2 Santa suits)- only Zoe realises that its actually dad!

Anyway this first layout is of Ella sitting on Santa's knee - i love the look on her face when he asks her what she would like for Christmas and her look of shy awe in the third photo! I used the back side of a heavily patterned Websters page  for a change -and added lots of Petaloo flowers and gorgeous Websters sparklers....

Here is a close up shot

The second page i tried to keep pretty simple as Websters pages usually are pretty detailed and i wanted both the page and the photo to be the focus without a whole lot of layering or embellishing. So what to do when you can;t layer? Well how about using a shadow box technique where you cut into the paper and layer behind the photo using lots of pop dots to make it have more dimension. Its hard to tell in the photo but in real life the photo is sunken into the page!

 I hope that this has inspired you to get out those old Christmas photos and start scrapping them now so that you are ready for this years gorgeous Christmas photos !

Happy Scrapping!
