This week the Fabulous Friday Challenge at Frosted Designs is to use Twine or Ribbon on your project. I saw a digital layout on Pinterest that gave me this idea. I prefer actual paper and texture on my layouts. Here is the page I was inspired by:
Here is a LINK to this project. As you can see, my style is a bit different but the sketch is the same.
I started with some Christmas paper from my stash and gold cardstock. I designed my layout on my Gypsy. On the first Layer, I put a triangle from George on my mat. I unlinked chain below the width and height and stretched my triangle to fit the page. I sized it 5.00w x 11.50h. I found the phrase Oh Christmas Tree from Winter Frolic and cut out both layers at 2.53 inches. I intended on putting 2012 on my layout until I remembered that Christmas 2012 hasn't happened yet..... I found the numbers from Designer Calendar.
On the next Layer, I put some jingle bells on the mat sized to 1.12 inches. I used stars and hearts from George sized to 1.35 inches. I cut out a sign post from Christmas at 2.88 inches, but did not use it.
I added our annual Christmas Tree Hunt photo of my boys. One great sketch ~ two different looks. Be sure to join us at Frosted Designs for our Twine or Ribbon Challenge this week!!
