I used to struggle scrapping all things to do with Christmas, red and green were just a huge challenge that I didn't want to undertake. Now, I love Christmas scrapping because of Jaiden, this year was his first Christmas and I can't wait to share this layout with you all.
Now, if your's patient enough you'll let the texture paste dry in it's own time, if you're lie me, you'll blast it dry with a heat gun. After I had dried the texture paste I played around with some scraps to find how I like my layering for under the photo, I stuck it down and then mounted the photo to a piece of vellum.
I used the doily as a mount for my embellishment cluster that includes these cute items from the Scrapping Fun Kits Design Team bonus Christmas kit.
Handmade Paper Poinsettias
After this, I cut the red Punchinella from the kit in half and glued each piece under the photo and cluster.
I finished off with adding my title and some more ink splatters.
The straws in this kit are perfect for Christmas layouts as the remind me of the North Pole pole.
