Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! I’m excited to be back on the blog today sharing with you my last post of the year and to end the year, I’ve created a Christmas themed scrapbook layout. To kick-start the idea for my layout, I used our December Sketch which was designed by Kerry Engel. With the sketch in hand, I set off to create my Christmas Memories Scrapbook Layout which features the Christmas Collection from Carta Bella Ink from Ranger Ink and adhesives from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite holiday beverage as I share with you how I created my layout at home. In the bottom right side of the circle, I layered in elements out of the Christmas Ephemera, Frames & Tags and the Paper Pack from Carta Bella. The photo is cut down to 3 ½” x 3 ½”. To finish off the edges of the fussy cut images and patterned papers, ink them using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam from Ranger Ink. To get the dimension on the right side, I use 3D Foam Squares and EZ Runner from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. On the bottom left side of the circle, I tied in the elements from the right-hand side. The square of patterned paper measures 2 ½” x 2 ½”. The other elements came from the Christmas Ephemera, Frames & Tags and the patterned paper pack from Carta Bella. Don’t forget to ink the edges using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam from Ranger Ink.
The top left and right sides of the circle are a mirror of each other. I cut the photos down to 3 ½” x 3” and 3” x 3”. The patterned paper square measures 2” x 2”. The other elements around the pictures and squares come from the Christmas Ephemera Pack and Patterned Paper Pack from Carta Bella. Make sure to ink the edges using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam from Ranger Ink. As well the photos and May your Christmas circle are all adhered using 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog post.
