'Twas the Night Before Christmas ....

... and all through the house, not a creature was stirring ...

This is my 'T is for Tags' layout for this month's scraplift challenge over on Scrapology.

To start off the new year we are scraplifting this stunning page by Elaine Rolf.  Many of you will know Elaine from Scrap 365 magazine, Paper Arts Shop and her blog The Distressed Scrapper.
Here is her original layout:

and the sketch 

Here is how I made my layout:

Cut several clock faces using the Tim Holtz Sizzix die  from scrap card to use as masks and lay them on the cream base cardstock, spray lightly with sprout Tattered Angels glimmer mist. Leave to dry, remove masks.

Cut several clock faces from green bazzill. Make tags in various sizes from Authentic Festive collection patterned papers, punching a small hole in the top of each one. Ink the edges.

Cut photos to sizes required.

Arrange everything on the page and when happy with the arrangement stick in place. I stuck some things down flat and others were raised up with 3D foam pads. 

Where the clock hands show attach with a gold brad.

I wound some twine in and out of some tags and made ties for others.

With the Cheeky Alphabet stamps from The Paper Trunk add a rhyme, or long title around the outer edges of the layout. 

Please pop over to Scrapology to find out more about the challenge and the prize.

  2. Happy New Year Lynn. Super layout. Unusual colour combo but it really works. Love it. :)

  3. Both pages are gorgeous - love the use of so many tags. Those are a brilliant series of photos in the second and I like the placing of the clock dies.
