Happy New Year!
Moving swiftly on! I used some of the 3×4 cards from the Dear Santa sheet along with some 3×4 photos of my little cutie to put together this very simple and quick page. As the paper I chose had several titles running along it; one of the cards said “Merry, Merry, Merry” and the other cards had some wording, I opted not to add a title with Thickers. (Good job too, right?!) I added a couple of the Allison Kreft Tree and Reindeer Paperclips and a little WOW glitter in red and left it at that. Clean and simple and not overly fussy.
I find that paper with a lot of wording on it can make for a fussy page. On this page I tried to take the focus off the wording on the background paper by having it run vertically instead of horizontally. I then added a few strips of other patterned paper from the range before layering my photo on top of that. A cluster of Vintage Stamps in the top corner and one in the bottom corner create the visual triangle with the paper clip on the photo. Again I left this page title free as there is already so much wording on there.
On the final page that I have to share with you I used small pieces cut from the worded patterned paper to create a little cluster of titles along with one of the Vintage Stamps. That along with the wording on the journalling card meant there was no need for Thickers etc again. (I’ll say it again – good job right?!!) You can all have a good laugh at me in the elf hat – I don’t offend easily!
I still have Christmas photos to scrap and luckily I have enough of the gorgeous Allison Kreft papers left to use up. Please leave us links to your Christmas scrapping. We’d love to come and take a look before all the Valentines layouts take over!
Take care all.
