Wow, it has been a whole week since I have posted on my blog. Sorry ladies! It's summertime and I would rather be outside than on my that a bad thing?

Anyways, here I am with my add-on creation for Sketch Support. There have been some awesome cards and layouts so be sure the site to check them out. You can also download and print your own copy of the sketch too.

Here is the sketch!

And here is what I created. As soon as I saw the sketch I immediately thought of a Christmas tree. Christmas is my least favourite thing to scrapbook and I am usually very disappointed with my photos. I am very happy with how this page turned out.


So, instead of making a party hat, I made a Christmas tree. I embellished it with green twine, die-cuts and the new Sparklets from Kaisercraft.

I added some liquid applique to my Santa and sleigh.

I added some brads to the center of the candy border and a row of stitched scallop using my new favourite template.

I used another die-cut for my title and added a little liquid applique to the little bird.

I created this layout using the new Santa's Helper collection from Imaginisce. I love the papers and embellishments. Here's hoping for more 'loved' Christmas pages in my future.



  1. Oh man! Carolyn this is stunning! ALL that time you put in surely pays off! WTG!

  2. Cool idea for this sketch Carolyn, I love your take on it.
    Your tree is awesome (that includes the gifts).

  3. Gorgeous! I love how you changed it to a tree!!

  4. This is such a beautiful layout...I love all the die cuts and the stitching you used.

  5. Holy smokes... I hope you are submitting these gf! Gorgeous!

  6. Oooooohh Carolyn! Amazing. Love it all. Especially the details like the red elements on the tree.

    BTW I am never happy with my Christmas photos either. Is it because they are inside?
