My inspiration post today is all about Christmas!!
It isn't long now til that big day arrives... and I am sure every year it seems to come by faster and faster! Are you one of those people who are right into the spirit of Christmas? Are you organised? I would love to hear how you celebrate Christmas Day? I have started my Christmas shopping but I know that I will probably just keep buying things right up until the big day! I just love giving thoughtful gifts and having lots of little gifts being opened on the day... so I do go a little CRAZY around this time of the year.
Later on in the month, I am going to share with you some easy Christmas paper crafting that you can do at home (so make sure you check back to see that post). Until then, today I am going to share with you a layout I created using the KaiserCraft Christmas Silly Season range.
Each year, we have a tradition where we take a family portrait in front of the tree before we start opening presents and I love to see how much our family has grown over the years. This layout features Liam's second Christmas back in 2006. (hmmm, check out me as a Brunette too!!)
I just needed to use my gorgeous Prima leave mask sprayed on the red card stock using some Studio Calico Huey Mist in White. I think it looks a bit like snow and resembles the Christmas Wreath. I have created several layers with the patterned papers (listed below). I then wanted to wrap up the whole layout like a present so I used a piece of ribbon and then added the bow!! Lastly, the KaiserCraft Chipboard shapes make the perfect embellishments. I added some Hollie and created little hanging embellishments using some twine to finish the look. I just love love love TWINE!
