Tis the Joy of Christmas from Sandra

Hello Bloggers

Back to some Layout ideas using the Christmas papers: 

Tis the Joy of Christmas

'I loved the rich colour of the Christmas Greetings paper and wanted to use it as the background for my layout.  I embossed the little frames before applying two coats of paint and the distressed paper has been inked around the edges.  The lace has been sprayed with two types and colours of mist before being adhered over the top of the wider glitter ribbon.  I fussy cut the Father Christmas from the ATC paper and also the Intricate Glass Ornament Stamp before adhering behind the matting of cardstock and patterned paper.'

You have certainly used to rich colours of these papers to your advantage - well done Sandra. Love the embossing on the frames, the fussy cut Santa & the stamped ornament.  The frames & letterings in white really lift the LO & the vine up the side is perfect.  Also love the placing of the red lace mat & the 2 frames with pics - makes the LO very interesting & moves the eye around the entire LO.

Bye for now


  1. This is superb - those frames are delish & that's a GREAT idea [gonna 'lift' that one!!!] - my fave bit is the run of flowers & leaves down the side....gorgeous colours, too:):):)

  2. A lovely festive page, scrapped in the traditional Christmas colour...I like the embossed frames and the Father Christmas peaking out behind the layers :)

  3. Love this page!! Gorgeous embossed frames and I looooove the lace!! Absolutely scrumptious!!! ox
