I really enjoy making Christmas projects in non-traditional colours and this latest layout is no exception! I'm excited to share with you a little bit of digital hybrid in this one, too – even for those who aren't so sure about all that "digital stuff"!
We did this layout at our Hamilton Scrapbooking Day on Saturday – we had lots of fun!
The layout concept itself is quite simple and would be very suitable for many different colours and themes. PLUS it's more than one photo, which is an exception to my usual style, I know, I know. I based this layout from a similar one found on Pinterest.
You may recognize the first square . . .it was actually a fabric design from a year or two ago called Candy Cane Christmas. Well guess what? It's now available as a digital print. So I really did just drop the design onto an A4 blank page in My Digital Studio and printed it out at home!
These trees are so cute! They are made very simply by cutting triagles using the Pennant Banner Punch. I embossed the snowflakes from Festive Flurries in white and then cut out. You can't tell they are snowflakes, but the patterns are quite nice.
This is a "dsp" that I have literally designe and created in My Digital Studio. I simply dragged and dropped in every Christmas word stamp I had and colored them to match the layout. Copied and pasted the lot a couple of times to fill an A4, printed at home, and done! This way you can get the perfect match every time.
I also wanted to point out the photos – it was super easy to size them to exactly the square size I needed, change them to black & white, and add some Christmas words on them. I literally got them all ready in about 8 minutes! My Digital Studio is very user friendly – even if you only use it to edit photos, it's worth the $27.95!!
Our last square is a little pocket, embellished with both types of embossing and a hand made tag. And a title out of the Expressions Thinlits in Red Glimmer Paper is extra nice!! (Must have sparkles with Christmas!)
I'd love to show you more about My Digital Studio. I have put together 9 video tutorials that are yours free when you download either the Free Trial Version of MDS or the Full My Digital Studio for $27.95.
