Christmas Day

My scrapbook room is finally getting into order and I am creating some layouts (and completely loving it!)  I got a new camera of course I did right?  Don't I always... for Christmas, the Nikon 1!  So now I'm finally getting some much better shots of my layouts so let's get on with it.  I'm happy to show you my newest and latest edition |Christmas Day|

A full look at the layout using the BasicGrey | Aspen Frost Collection.

I added a small badge in the bottom left corner to balance the sticker in the top right part of the page.

A close up of the sticker that I made "pop" with American Crafts tabs.

Close up of the Twinkle, Twinkle that I cut with my Silhouette Cameo.  I used a Jenni Bowlin star for the dot of the "i" - I thought it was more more Christmasy.

Here are the products I used for this page.  Thanks for looking!

Christmas Tags

I know this is a little late but I've been so busy keeping up with my December Daily and running around for the holidays that I haven't blogged in a while now.  So here I am, starting fresh and getting ready for the new year! 

I love Christmas Gift Tags.  This year I decided to make my own and tried to go as simple as possible, simple is always best right?  Especially when making multiples!  I used my Silhouette to cut the tag shape and cut out the words.  I chose "holiday" words that I liked and used a simple font to cut the words.  I then proceeded to take the paper after it was cut (white bazzil cardstock) and wipe it across my stamp pad (red and green colors of course)for a vintage, distressed effect.  Added some simple twine and viola!  It's safe to say that I was happy with the results!

Hope you had the merriest of holidays.

Favorites - Stars

Okay, I'm done being extremely busy for the time being and it's nice to relax and get back into my scrapbooking (especially with this new amazing room my dad built for me) I thought I would start to do a little favorites category every now and then.  Right now and always I'm obsessed with stars.  I swear I can do a layout and add one star and it just completes the page.  Do you feel the same as I do??  Well here are some of my favorites at the moment I'm sure I'm forgetting some too.

A little update...

So, I've been a little behind with my postings.  There's been a lot of work going on the past two weekends and I'm happy to say my scrapbook room/office is D.O.N.E. and it's my favorite room!  Everything about it is beautiful and perfect!  I am getting caught up putting together my December Daily pages (yes, I've still been taking pictures and "recording" my days) so I'll post those very soon!  As for now, thanks for following along and I'll be back in a little bit!
