5 christmas lo's

Naughty or Nice

This lo was made almost entirely from a basic greys tag sheet and chipboard letters from my stash.
I inked the edges of the tags and positioned them  onto white card stock.
TIP I took a photo before moving them to glue the backs so I could refer back to exact positions.
I fixed some of the tags with small brads and finished the page with a flower embellishment that I got from the pound shop.

Vintage lo 1981

I started by cutting 2 sheets of paper in half, then trimmed 1" from the top and side of each. Punch a decorative edge on the red paper before gluing both pieces onto ice blue card stock so you have a half inch boarder.
TIP add the red ribbon before sticking down the photos.
I trimmed and positioned 3 photos and added embellishments, I also stamped a swirl under the 3rd photo with a cluster of snowflakes. I finished off by doodling a boarder and adding stickles.

Snose flake
I've had this photo for a little while and finally decide to scrap it...
I took this pic of my daughter at the precise time a snow flake floated past her nose.
A simple lo but one of my favs.

Christmas Morn

I did this lo at December's papermaze crop.
We were all given a kit and had to come up with our own lo.
I was so pleased I managed to make 2 lo's....

The middle photo lift to reveal my journaling.

 Christmas snooze

I made this lo by using various punches.
I started by punching the left corners of the red cardstock. I then cut the holly paper to size and rounder the left corners. I punched the edges of a cream strip of cardstock and placed into position. I trimmed my photos to size and glued. finishing off with handmade embellishments and title.

published again!!!!

I'm so happy I've been published again in scrapbook magazine.....
My lo was chosen for the December issue, readers gallery.

Beautiful senorita

I created this lo of my daughter Dayna in her Spanish dress.

I picked out the red and black from her dress and used these as my main colours.
My journaling is hidden under the second photo that opens out to the side using the white ribbon.
I made the flower from double sided paper using a template.
