"Joy" - DT creation for The Scrapbook Store

Oh my goodness, it is Friday already! This week has just flown for me, but nevertheless I have managed to squeeze in another creation for The Scrapbook Store using the ever so gorgeous
Blue Fern Studios Vintage Christmas.

I have a huge confession to make to you all. Some of you may already be aware of it though I am sure. Well I call myself the Grinch of Christmas Scrapping!!! There I said it. It has been about 8 years now that I have been scrapping and in that time I have only ever produced two other Christmas layouts excluding the two that I have done this week. I have never really taken to scrapping Christmas and I can't explain why. But what I can say is now that I have done a couple more I have thoroughly enjoyed the process of celebrating the memories of Christmas's of our previous years.

This layout was put together using a favourite photo of my son and youngest daughter Christmas Day of 2008. Back when they could happily put their arms around each other!

I hope you enjoy this, I have titled it....."Joy".


I have basically built on to the beautiful background of this Blue Fern Studios Vintage Christmas patterned paper. I started off by embossing my Blue Fern Studios Roman Clocks and the Memory Maze Wrought Iron Shelf.


I cut the word Joy from my Blue Fern Studios Word Ornaments Bauble and dressed it with some very pretty Diamond Dust. All my leaves were also dressed with a little of the Diamond Dust and a smiggen of Walnut Stain Distress Ink to darken them up a little to help co-ordinate with the patterned paper leaves around the edges.


You can see here that I have  used some Metal trinkets cut them up and tucked them around the page, along with some tea stained cheesecloth.


I love this little chipboard piece with the candle and bauble. Sooooo cute. I have inked the bauble with a little Evergreen Bough Distress Ink and some Crackle Accents to highlight it a little. I also wrapped a little pink jute from the top of the bauble and just let it hang where it may!

As always I have made a materials list for all materials used here in this layout. They are readily available here at The Scrapbook Store.

Well that is all from me today. I hope you have a wonderfully beautiful weekend and also that you take the time to do something for yourself!

Until next time happy scrapping.

Tina
