Naughty or Nice - CSI #271

My response of the CSI Cold Case 271 (Colour, Stories, Inspiration), is this layout called 'Naughty or Nice?' with my nephew's children the Christmas before last. 

In answer to some of the clues:
Find older papers that have a winter theme / match the palate - I used papers from several old Basic Grey collections:
Blitzen, Figgy Pudding, Eskimo Kisses, Pulmeria, Wassail and Fruit Cake.
Use at least 3 seldom used stamps - managed one with 49 and Market Gabi's Stitches
Use Stickers - Letter Stickers from the Basic Grey Collections mentioned above.
Use Enamel Accents, Liquid Pearls or similar to make dots around the page inspired by the white dots in the scene - I used Nvuo Crystal Drops around the large heart and on two of the paper strips.
I also used paper with dots for the background.
Use products from a kit you have not used or that you did not use much - several items from a Christmas Papermaze kit form a couple of years ago - the Christmas greeting, the glitter heart and the tickets. I have a box of Christmas embellishments which I have collected over the years and that is where I found some wooden gingerbread men, a button badge, silver painted wooden stars, Santa charm a glittery brad and a Christmas postage stamp.

Create a wreath from some of the items - I made a heart wreath from my papers using an old set of templates from my stash - They were from Technique Tuesday.
Update the look of your items by adding stitching - my rubber stamp as mentioned above - stitches.

Thanks for the challenge and for looking.

  1. What a great take on the CSI challenge, Lynn. I love your interpretation of the wreath. Those hearts are really nice, and the placement of the title letters is really well done. The stacked gingerbread men made me smile. They perfectly reflect the children in the photo. A fun layout for sure. TFS and for playing along with us at CSI.
