My Creative Scrapbook

Hello!  I'm here today to share a couple more layouts I created for My Creative Scrapbook with the amazing Main Kit....You can see the full kit here!
 Using my dies from Cheery Lynn Designs, I pieced together the Snowflake edger around the base of my layout to add a bit of elegance to the layout. The Mega Tea Party Doily is the perfect backdrop for the Santa that I fussy cut from pattern paper.
All the foliage was cut from the same off white cardstock as the edger and doily. I added color to the foliage using Ranger Distress inks and pouncers….colors used: Forest Moss, Pine Needles, Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint, and Shabby Shutters. A similar effect could be created using fewer colors. I use more colors to get more variation in different types of foliage used. To create the flower cluster, I started by choosing the placement of the flowers. Next, I tucked in the leaves, followed by the flourish. From there, I poke in one piece at a time until the bouquet it is pleasing to my eye.
 
Snowflake 2 and the Snowflowers floating about completes the wintery feel.
 
I placed a few more pieces of foliage here and there for a bit of interest.
 
 I created this layout to have a shadowbox effect by cutting my pattern paper into a frame and adhering it to the background using foam adhesive.
 
When cutting the frame, I fussy cut around the bird on the pattern paper. I added diecut foliage for dimension.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a fabulous and safe holiday weekend!!!
