Ah, touches of traditional deep green and red, wood grain print papers, and splashes of snowflakes... a much more straightforward holiday page. Lately I've been using a lot of plain white cardstock for my backgrounds, adding color by way of banners and photo layers, watercolors and mists. So here I opted to use two of the papers as my background and a cheery red and white candy cane striped branding strip along the seam.
Papers and goodies are from the November Scrapbook Circle kit. The kit provided an entire pack of acetate embellishments; here I used the gifts and the mistletoe. Also included was a package of washi strips and I made use of several of them by tearing them and placing them at the top corner of the page and repeating them along the candy cane seam. The washi strips also provided the wording on the red and green labels (also included in the kit).
About the only thing I went outside the kit for was the Thickers alpha, the doily and ribbon, and the punched snowflakes. It's always kind of nice to be able to create your entire page from the main kit!
I used two more of the labels among the paper layers under the photo, tucked in some tabs,a few punched snowflakes for a punch of white and tied on a scrap of dotted swiss sheer ribbon above the mistletoe acetate.
This is something Scrapbook Circle does exceedingly well. They provide ample embellishments, their section of papers always seems to allow for both feminine and more masculine pages; or in this case pastel holiday pages and a more traditional take. Love this!
No paints, mists, texture paste... just straight scrapbooking! It was a good day, Elfie says so!
