Yesterday I gave some tips on getting started in, what I believe, is one of the most fabulous hobbies to be in existence, so I wanted to follow up with an easy Christmas scrapbook layout to show that keeping it simple is fun, creative and attractive!
In case you are wondering, the photo is in fact from last year because, like most people, I am NOT caught up on my scrapbooks, and will likely NEVER be, because I am shutter happy with my camera! I look at it this way- scrapbooks are a work in progress. Enjoy the process! Not every photo has to be “scrapbooked” either. There are divided photo sleeves on the market to include photos that you may not want to actually scrapbook, but want to include in your albums, which make the process a ton easier!
I used a variety of products on this layout. I enjoy using different manufacturers products together!
Here’s my list:
FEPAD07-First Edition Christmas Village 12×12 Paper Pad
DC0383- Quickutz Snowflake Punches
DC0180-Quickutz Nesting Frame 7
DA0081-Quickutz Handmade Alphabet
EG-003-Spellbinders M-Bossabilities Garden Lattice (This is a grand size of 8 3/4 x 11 3/4″ which requires the Grand Calibur machine.)
658181-Sizzix Tree & Snowflake
GC-001-Spellbinders Grand Calibur machine
This was really easy and only took aprox. an hour or so to complete! If my rhinestones would have been self adhesive, it would have taken less time, so if you have the self sticking kind, go for those!
I hope this will inspire to you to take some time during the holidays and cold evenings to start on those photos! Your family will love going through the memories later!
Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!
