Classic Christmas Scrapbooking Page Layout Idea

It's hard to believe but Christmas 2015 will be here before we know it. I've been really behind on my scrapbooking the past few months and just now starting to tackle my Christmas photos from 2014. Wow, time sure does fly!

Today's Christmas Scrapbooking Layout is a very quick and easy layout...great for beginners who are just learning to scrapbook or for those looking for frugal page ideas. This layout is in the classic 12" x 12" format.

The background is a sheet of red, green and white plaid paper. The big snowman cutout in the bottom left cover is from a greeting card that I received last year. I cut him out and lightly misted him with archival mist spray to make him safe for my scrapbooks. I put him on the page using adhesive foam dots.

I cropped down 3 photos of my little grand daughter and matted them in "strip style" onto red cardstock, trimmed leaving an 1/8" edge and then matted again onto green cardstock with an 1/8" edge. I used double-sided adhesive tape to place the photo strip onto the page.

Using my Cricut I cut out the words "Happy Christmas" using the 1 1/2" size setting from red cardstock and then used the shadow feature and cut out those words again from green cardstock. I layered them together using a liquid glue pen.

Using that same cartridge I cut out a red star and a green star and layered them together. I used my liquid pearls to add dots to the star to jazz it up a bit. Left dry and then attached it to the left of the title wording. To finish up, I added a clear adhesive quote sticker that says "I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. ~ Charles Dickens" which was placed right underneath the title.

The Christmas layout is a LOT nicer than what these photos show. My camera was acting up so I couldn't get decent pictures. If you want your title to stand out more...reverse the colors by cutting green letters/words first and using the shadow effect to repeat them in red.

This is a beautiful Christmas layout. I think I would reverse the colors of the letters to make them stand out a little more or perhaps it is just the lighting since your camera was acting up.
