CHRISTMAS MAGIC LAYOUT USING CUTFILES | with Tegan

I absolutely love Christmas and so I couldn't wait to create projects with the new Christmas Magic collection. The mix of Santas, reindeer, gingerbread men, and adorable colors just makes me happy. I love creating fun cut out backgrounds for my pages, so I also used the tree cut file from the Doodlebug Design Santa in Car Cut File.

I used the tree cut file (again from the Doodlebug Santa in Car Cut File) to create a large background design of trees. I then backed each tree with fun patterned papers from the Christmas Magic collection. I used the adorable Tiny Heart Shape Sprinkles to give each tree a topper. This tree design turned out so pretty I almost didn't want to cover the trees up! I then used pieces of the Candy Stripe Washi Tape to embellish the top and bottom of the page.  
​ At the top, I added the banner sticker from the This & That Sticker Sheet and a reindeer sticker from the Mini Icons Stickers. I also used the Holly & Pine, Peppermint Twist, and Cookies & Candies Shape Sprinkles to embellish the Christmas tree background.

​ I added a few of the Peppermint Twist Shape Sprinkles to the scalloped circle sticker for some fun dimension. I further embellished it with Odds & Ends pieces and a Mini Icons Sticker reindeer. 

I used part of an Odds & Ends banner die cut to anchor my photos. I then used some Teensy Type number stickers in Limeade to put the year (2018) on the banner. And isn't that Santa and little elf die cut Odds & Ends piece just the cutest?! 
​ Thanks for stopping in today! I hope you are just as excited about scrapbooking Christmas layouts as much as I am! Have a great day!

CHRISTMAS MAGIC GINGERBREAD HOUSE MINI ALBUM | with Shellye

Oh Christmas Magic is in the air!  Today I'm sharing the sweetest little gingerbread-house-shaped-mini album.  I've used a steel-rule die to cut the shapes from chipboard and patterned paper, but any house die or template would work!


The die also cuts out the window's shutters and door, which worked perfectly for the cover.  After dressing with patterned papers, I added the Doodle Pop Santa so that he's peeking out from behind the door!  I also modified the roof-line by die-cutting just a portion of the roof and then trimming to size.  
Around the edge of the front and back covers, I trimmed with Chunky Twine.  To give a nice attachment, I've found that Glossy Accents holds the twine really well; a drop on the end of the twine also gives a good seal to prevent fraying.
For the inside pages I chose to cover the die-cut areas (window and door) by adding a circle of paper.  The size is perfect for adding small pictures to.
I love, love, love interactive pieces, so on the above two pages, I added a die-cut and tag that were adhered by one edge.  Everyone enjoys a cute peek-a-boo page!
Because the album is "mini" it's the perfect canvas for showing off those bitty stickers, tags and decorative brads.
I didn't have a large ring on hand to hold the pages together, so I used a white shower curtain ring instead...add a bit of ribbon and it works out just right!

Thank you for joining me today!
