Inspiration: I'm not sure about you, but I have so many Christmas pictures that I need to get scrapped before Christmas rolls around again! I seem to get a little overwhelmed with all of the pictures I've taken that I have a hard time getting them all scrapped. When I was looking through the store and saw the new Snowy Jo line by Imaginisce, I knew that I wanted to work with it! This line is so beautiful and I love all the colors that match all of my Christmas pictures. After seeing the papers and embellishments in person I love this line even more. The papers and embellishments are beautifully accented with glitter and even better, the glitter does not fall off! I also love how all the papers are double sided so you get two different patterns on each piece of paper.
Materials Used: (see below for links to individual products)
I used products from the Imaginisce Snow Jo line to create these layouts and cards.
Christmas 2007: For this layout I mixed and matched four different papers using both the front side and the back side. All of the different patterns work so well together. I alternated the glitter brads with rub-ons on my scallop cut paper to create a fun border. Then I punched out a circle from one of the papers, added the snowman rub-on and then added the bling.
Ha Ha Ha Santa: For this layout I used both sizes of the glitter brads to create borders around two of the corners on my grouped pictures. I also added a couple of the smaller brads in my title.
Santa I Can Explain: I love the cute feel of these two patterned papers, they worked perfect for the pictures of my son and Santa. After I glued down my base papers I then put two 1/2" x 12" strips of another patterned paper on my layout and then added some glitter brads.
Here are some cards that I created with my leftover scraps of paper. I now have a good head start on this year's Christmas cards!
Happy Holidays Card: This was a simple card to make. I cut three strips of paper, inked them and then stamped the greeting and trees. I then added a tiny glitter star sticker to each of the treetops.
Happy Holidays Card #2: For this card I used up lots of different scraps from my papers by simply punching them with my square punch. Then I outlined the squares with different colors of glitter. I also added a rub-on greeting to one of the 3D sticker tags.
Merry Christmas Card: I loved the sparkle delight stickers from the Snowy Jo line and I wanted them to show up really well so I placed them on a white background.
Tis The Season Card: Here's another card that I used stamping on. I alternated the snowman and gingerbread man stamps and then added glitter to accent the stamped images.
Season's Greetings Card: For this card I created my own little embellishment by using a circle punch to create my circle, then I inked it and added three rub-on trees.
I loved these in the gallery and again am reminded and inspired to start my own cards!
