Last week I sat down and made this really quick and easy Christmas Scrapbook Layout which took me less than 1 hour to make. Plus, I had all of the supplies on-hand and left-over from previous layouts that I had made. I guess you could say, it is a "frugal" layout and great for beginners.
My background is one sheet of holiday printed paper from Paper Pizazz - Hot off the Press called Corner Ornaments. It is done in your traditional red, off-white and green color scheme accented with blue and gold.
I had 4 photos which I cropped down. The 2 larger ones are the same size and the 2 smaller ones are the same size, arranged in a grid. I matted them onto dark green cardstock and then red cardstock leaving an 1/8" edge around all mats.
In the top right corner I used a 3-dimensional ornament embellishment (forget which brand) which I applied to the layout using foam dots. I used some gold metallic cord to hang them and taped the ends down on the back of the page. I stamped the words "Merry Christmas" onto off-white cardstock using red ink. I then matted my words on green and red cardstock and attached it to the page using foam dots. I decided to not do any journaling as I don't like my pages too cluttered up.
Over the next couple of weeks I will share a few more holiday scrapbook layouts with all of you as I get them completed. Thanks for reading my craft blog!
