The Magic of Christmas Eve

Here is the layout I made for the Scrapology Challenge this month. The project was based on this double layout sketch we chose from Jana Eubank.

I used a collection pack from My Mind's Eye called 'I Believe' available from Jill at Cardinal Colours. I picked two sheets of 12"x12" Bazzill Bling cardstock in red.

I cut narrow strips in green and trimmed them with the Martha Stewart holly border punch. I added this along the bottom of the the diagonal stripe paper. I added a few dots of liquid Pearls in red for berries.

The journalling blocks were made by cutting one of the die cut shapes into two and adding half to each page. The Title is created with American Craft Thickers in glittery red. The small letter tiles are stickers left over from another layout. I added the journalling detail by hand, and decorated the blocks with red gems. The one 4"x6" portrait photo was mounted on mint paper leaving a wide border at the bottom. I attached ribbon and a charm.

There was a lot of paper left after making the double layout so I made mini album too. I will share these with you later in the month, when I have taken some photographs.

I hope you will have a go at this challenge and share your layout with us on Scrapology.  The prize for this months challenge will be announced in a few days.

The photos were taken of my great nephew Jamie, at our house Christmas eve 2005. He was really taken with the nativity scene, and loved playing with the animals.
