An Annual Holiday Tradition

I am back with another awesome sketch from Sketch Support. It is two-page week, which is my personal favourite. Here is the sketch that Allison created for us to play with.

two-page(DEC) 2011

I am not a big fan of scrapbooking Christmas because I find that my photos are not usually the best and they are often very busy. These photos are no exception. They are from my annual shopping trip to Erie with my sister. We always go to Bath & Body Works (and spend a ton of money). Their displays are so colourful and I couldn't resist taking some photos.


I didn't use one sheet of cardstock on this layout. I don't think I have ever created a layout with using cardstock.


The stickers I used are from the 25 Days of Christmas from Simple Stories. There are so many stickers on the sheet, I hardly made a dent in it. I used foam adhesive to pop them up and make things a little more interesting.


To create my title I cut out the word 'holiday' from one of the papers and added some mini alpha stickers. I love how it turned out.


I had to add some of my favourites........brads and stitching. It wouldn't be 'my' layout if I didn't.


I increased the number of photos from 9 to 12 on page 2 of my layout. I used Picasa to create a collage and then I printed it in an 8x10 size print. I cut the photos apart and matted them with a large piece of dark green pattern paper.


This going to be one of my favourite Christmas layouts. Maybe I have started a new trend. Thanks Allison for another amazing sketch to work with.
