JOLLY CHRISTMAS LAYOUT

Hi Creators Trace here again!! I am loving this new Couture Creations Jolly Christmas Paper Pad soooo much. Here is a quick layout that I did that features my gorgeous but sometimes naughty daughter Tayla and in the background of her photo you may be able to see the Christmas tree I always dreamed of... a black tree with silver trim.

 
I started this layout by spritzing the Bright White Core dinations cardstock with a bright pink.
then cutting a strip of patterned paper from the Jolly Christmas Paper pad I placed it through the middle of the page. Then I used one of the reversed sides of pattern paper from the same Paper pad slightly wider than the previous under the photo.
From another piece of reverse pattern paper I cut a small strip and scalloped it with the Couture Creations scalloped square nesting die to add to the side of the photo.
 
 
I then cut some artisan shapes using the edge of my Couture Creations Rose Nesting Die to place under the middle strip of PP and at the other end of my photo. Embossing them with Craft Concepts rubber mats.
 

Using the Couture Creations Sophia Die Choo I cut some double sided jac paper and added it overlapping the photo and added glitter.
 

Over the glittered Die cut I added some flowers and a bauble I cut from the Jolly Christmas Paper Pad. I then added some word stickers to the top and bottom of my photograph and capped them off with a bracket I made using the Couture Creations Victorian Square Nesting die by simply cutting along the edge of the die moving the paper over a fraction and cutting again.
 

I then embellished the top corner of the layout with some PP strips and some trees cut from the Jolly Christmas Paper Pad

COUTURE BAUBLES

Hi Creators Tracey here! I was racking my brain trying to think of projects that I could do with my daughters that was quick and easy, so I grab my Couture Creations 12x12 paper pad Jolly Christmas and found these great baubles that I could cut out. With a bit of bling they came up like this....

 
To do this project all you need is a Couture Creations Jolly Christmas Paper Pad, Couture Creations Adhesive Gemstones, fishing line, adhesives, Couture Creations scissors and some ribbon.
 

Simply cut out a pair of baubles from the Couture Creations Jolly Christmas Paper Pad (there are two sheets of each design in the pad so you will need to cut one from each sheet to get a pair)
 

take a small piece of fishing line and fold in half to form a loop and adhere 2 large Couture Creations adhesive Gemstones back to back over the fishing line..do this so there is a row of 3 gemstones.
 

Add the fishing line to the back of a bauble with a glue dot and adhere the two baubles back to back with Couture Creations Double Sided Tape
 
 
Add a ribbon bow to the top of the bauble and you have some really pretty Christmas Tree Decorations that are a quick and easy craft to do with your kids.
 
Thanks for dropping by
Keep on creating!
