Glow of Christmas

Here I am with a fun Christmas layout featuring photos of my darling niece and a sketch from My Scraps and More.

I didn't like how stark white plain the background was with all of the photos and layers focused towards the bottom, so I added all of the watercolor marks using my red and gold gelatos! I love how it turned out. I used papers from the Studio Calico Christmas line, which I fell in love with right away (and I normally don't like their Christmas lines). I finally opened up the Maggie Holmes overlay frames and used two of them on this page. They have been sitting in my stash for TOO LONG! 


I cut my title using my Silhouette Cameo. I originally just had the one layer of the gray, but it was blending in too much so I added the red background to it to make it stick out more. I LOVE those wood veneer stars from Studio Calico and embossed them with gold embossing powder. 


I added some sequins and washi tape to finish it off! I also used a roller date stamp for the current challenge at Scrapbook Circle. Something I use all the time!


Thanks for looking and I appreciate your comments!

This is a great page Andrea! Love how you used the sketch and layered all of your photos and papers at the bottom!

Those gold wood veneer stars are pretty cool! And I love your take on the sketch! I don't think I have ever made a layout with everything at the bottom... I should try it! :)
