Merry And Bright Tree Layout

Hello friends! I love creating Christmas layouts and I thought it would be fun to create a layout of my Christmas tree using some fabulous flair buttons from A Flair For Buttons.


I had a lot of fun creating this layout and I added lots of different techniques as I went along.   I wanted to add lots and lots of whimsy to my layout so I added lots of flair buttons.

First I watercolored a 12X12 piece of white card stock with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink and a waterbrush.  When it was dry, I cut the tree shape and also the Merry And Bright title with my Silhouette Cameo and hand stitched with green embroidery floss to the outside edge of the tree.  I thought this would make the tree stand out more and also give it a handmade feel.  


With my sewing machine, I machine stitched in white thread around the outside edge of the layout and stitched the title in place. 

I added the green plaid paper behind the white card stock background and adhered with liquid glue around the outside edge. Now it is time to embellish.  I had some sheer ribbon in red, green and aqua in my stash so I made some bows and added them to the tree.  I then added the flair buttons on top of the ribbon bows and also on the layout.  With some sheer aqua ribbon, I added it behind the white cardstock background and secured it with tape to look like garland.



To finish the layout, I added my photo that I matted with plaid paper, added the sequins to the tree in brown for the trunk and aqua for the tree, some wood star and tree shapes and finally some journaling in black pen below the photo and added Liquid Glass to the title to give it more shine and dimension.


I love the depth that the tree has.


I hope you enjoyed your visit.  Be sure and check out the A Flair For Buttons shop for these and hundreds more flair buttons for all your projects.

Have a wonderful day!

Christmas Cheer Layout

Hello friends! I thought I would share another layout that I created with the December Main Kit at My Creative Scrapbook.  

This is my favorite layout out of the five that I created with this kit. My youngest son loves his Christmas stocking and I use santa sacks instead of stockings to put lots of little trinkets inside.  Our home enjoys the stockings more than the gifts.

I simply love the buffalo check trend this year and can't get enough of it.  Log cabins and everything rustic is where it's at for this country girl at heart.  


I really love the free cut files that came with the kits this month. 

 I cut the tree cut file out on black card stock with my Silhouette Cameo and placed one behind the log cabin and one behind the cluster of gifts.




I love the little red bow in the kit.  I thought I would place it as the tree topper.


Look at the cut files that are FREE with your subscription for December!

Christmas Layout

Hello friends! Today I thought I would share my first layout that I created with the December Main Kit at My Creative Scrapbook.  I loved this kit and I have plenty of product left over for a few more layouts and cards, but ran out of time.  I love all the red and plaids in this kit.


The kit comes with gorgeous red Prima flowers.  I used two on this page.  I also love the wood stars. It gives the layout more texture and interest.









Here is the beautiful December Main Kit



The kits would make a perfect gift for yourself or a friend.  


Come back again to see more layouts from this gorgeous kit.  Thanks for stopping by!
