It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

Hi this is Cheryl. I am sitting here typing while looking out the window. It is just a beautiful fall day outside. Nice and sunny. Not too hot or too cold. Just right for open windows and a nice cool breeze to blow through the house. I made a pot of chilli this morning and it has been simmering on the stove all day. Won't be long and it will be too cold for open windows. Ol' man winter will be upon us and we will be decorating for the Christmas Holidays. I love this time of year and I love making my own cards typically in November and scrapbooking my families memories at a winter retreat in January.

Today for my project for Flamingo Scraps, I thought I would do a Christmas page. I can never have too many premade pages for all of the pictures we take each year. To start off I used a white 12" x 12" base, layered with a 11" x 11" piece of black card stock. I then added a small 6.50" x 10.75" piece of red card stock and I used a snowflake border punch along two sides of this and added a double photo matt on the bottom that measures 3.25" x 10" and a Heidi Swapp paper frame.

Using ribbon from my stash, I tied a simple knot bow on the bottom of the red card stock and cut two trees from the Fancy Pants Corrugated Paper Collection and adhered these over the ribbon.

I also added a journaling strip and die cut from the Echo Park Merry Christmas collection. From there I added a few Christmas diecuts and images on the page. Also, I saved the snowflake negative pieces and used these to decorate my trees and added four photo corners to the edges of my base layer. A simple, but sweet Christmas page to add pictures to later.

I hope you have enjoyed my project for today and I have inspired you to get started on your Christmas pages. I would love for you to check out the Flamingo Scraps Blog. If you would like to check out the online Flamingo Scraps store, please click here to get started shopping!
