Sue loves the Christmas season and it has become a tradition to take photos of her children in front of the Christmas tree with some of their special ornaments. Sue says it is lovely to look back over the previous years and see how her kids have grown and changed. Sue has used the Peppermint Collection from Crate Paper to create this vibrant layout, with a lovely glittered paper from We R Memory Keepers Peppermint Twist range, and a beautiful star vine from Prima, added in for a little sparkle.
Sue handcut snowflake designs from the paper and embellished them with iridescent gold glimmer mist, silver stitching and white sequins. Sue has also used the Tim Holtz rosette die and fabric brads to add more detail and dimension to her layout.
To create this LO, Janine drew inspiration from a Becky Fleck Pagemap and based her design around that. Originally the sketch was for a double LO, but Janine adapted it for a single. Janine thoroughly recommends the Becky Fleck Pagemap books as it can be a great starting point when you want to create a LO, and for Janine, she wanted to do a reasonable amount of journalling so this sketch was ideal.
She has then used the Authentique Christmas range and created multiple layers of paper in her design. To finish it off she has used some Prima flowers and a Prima metal, which she altered by applying black Stazon over the surface, for a two tone effect.
The great chipboard pieces in the My Mind's Eye 12 Days of Christmas range made it so easy for Kim to add the perfect embellishments to finish this layout which showcases the two variations of the Christmas Card that she sent in 2009. The range is so bright and colourful which means it is perfect for any Christmas layout.
