For my Christmas themed projects I decided to stick to the traditional red and green colour scheme and picked out these papers from the Christmas Eve Chowder range by Jillibean Soup. I added some red gingham ribbon, decorative pins, red dew drops, red mini brads, green crystal stickers and Black Bazzil card stock.
My 8.5 x 11 layout is called "Waiting for Christmas", It shows my daughter and her cousin at an amazing shop at Snape Maltings in suffolk, which we visited in October half term. To say it was fully loaded with everything anyone would ever need or want at Christmas time, is an under statement ! We were there browsing for ages, and the 2 girls really felt like Christmas was just around the corner :)
With the double sided patterned papers that were left over, I made a simple Star Garland.
All you need is a punch or star template, and a sewing machine.
and admire your efforts !
You can of course use any shaped image you like, and mix and match them along the garland. I haven't embellished my stars at all, but you could add glitter, inks, bling, ribbon or anything you fancy and really go to town to coordinate with your Christmas decorations.
I hope you are enjoying the Hop....please visit Lisa next for some more Christmas inspiration.
Thank you so much for visiting.
