I love to take my kids to see Santa every year and get the traditional Santa picture. This is my picture of the kids from last year. It is a fun way to see how my family has changed, how big the kids get, and get my kids to dress up for once.
I used the wonderful Paper House Christmas Cheer Collection (Red Flannel & Merry & Bright) of papers with the Christmas Paper Pad and the "All We Want for Christmas" 3D Stickers.
1) Start off cutting the Red Flannel Paper down to 11.5" x 11.5" and matting it on Kraft cardstock.
2) Add some gold glitter paste with a stencil as seen and let dry.3) Layer various papers from the Christmas Paper Pad and the Christmas Cheer Collection as seen, some vertically and some horizontally. Change the sizes of the papers so they layer nicely and you can see each paper.
4) Add in the picture (4"x4").
5) Embellish with Paper House Stickers, embroiderer floss, flowers, and gems to finish off the look, balancing the embellishments from one side to the other.
Here are some up close shots.
I never seem to want to scrap Christmas layouts after the holiday is over, but right now the Christmas Spirit is coming out and it is fun to break out the Christmas Cheer!!
