It's Karine here today to share with you three Christmas layouts!
I must admit I'm not a big fan of Christmas scrapbooking, but when I recieved my last Blue Fern Studios package, I was thrilled! Both Vintage Christmas and Vintage Christmas 2 collections are simply wonderful! So let's start with my first layout.
I started out with the Deck The Halls paper from Vintage Christmas. I wanted to go with a traditional color combo with this one, and the red in the paper immediately spoke to me. I also used some of the cards from the Greeting Cards paper, also from Vintage Christmas, to layer under my photo.
I used the beautiful Tree Toys chipboards on my layout. I embossed it with Imagine Ink Lime embossing powder. While the powder was still hot, I sprinkled some Imagine Ink Vintage Gold glitter. I love the beautiful effect it gave.
To embellish around my photo, I used the beautiful Attic Charm Glitter Roses, as they come with beautiful gold glitter and the colors matched perfectly my layout. I also used two Harvest Lilies.
Finally, my title piece comes from the Winter Titles set. I treated it the same way as the other chipboards.
My second layout is called Magical. For this one, I wanted a more elegant look, so I choose the Wonderland paper, from Vintage Christmas. I aslo used a piece of the Calling Cards paper from Vintage Christmas 2 to layer underneath my photo.
I treated my background with golden brown ink. I used the Forever stamps set to add a little bit of interest to the background.
I used the Winter Flakes chipboards on my layout. I covered them with silver embossing powder.
My title piece comes from the Winter Titles set. I covered it with ginger Imagine Ink embossing powder.
I went a bit over the top with my last layout. I started with the Let it Snow paper from the Vintage Christmas 2 collection. I layered pieces of the 'Twas the Night and Calling Cards papers, also from the Vintage Christmas 2 collection.
My layout is built around the beautiful Bubbles and Bows chipboard. I treated it with an embossing powder containing some green and gold flakes.
All through my flower cluster, I used the Berry Stems chipboards. They were covered with Imagine Ink Sea Mist embossing powder.
Look at this beautiful Santa image! Isn't it lovely?
Amongst all flowers, I used one of the Christmas Blooms. You can see it in the picture above.
My title piece, part of the Winter Titles set again, is covered with Imagine Ink Ginger embossing powder and while the powder was still hot, I sprinkled some Imagine Ink Vintage Gold glitter.
I hope my layouts help you catch a little bit of Christmas spirit.
