It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

Hi this is Cheryl. I am sitting here typing while looking out the window. It is a beautiful fall Texas day. Nice and sunny. Not too hot or too cold. Just right for open windows and a nice cool breeze to blow through the house. I made a pot of chilli this morning and it has been simmering on the stove all day. We all need to enjoy these autumn temperatures. Ol' man winter will soon be upon us.  All of our treasured fall decorations will be taken down this month and we will be soon decorating for  Christmas. I love this time of year and I love making my own cards typically in November and scrapbooking my families Christmas memories at a winter retreat in January.

Today for my project for Flamingo Scraps, I thought I would do a Christmas page. I can never have too many premade pages for all of the pictures we take each year. To start off I used a white 12" x 12" base, layered with a 11" x 11" piece of black card stock. I then added a small 6.50" x 10.75" piece of red card stock. I also used a snowflake border punch along two sides of this and added a double photo matt on the bottom that measures 3.25" x 10" and a Heidi Swapp paper frame.

Using ribbon from my stash, I tied a simple knot bow on the bottom of the red card stock and cut two trees from the Fancy Pants Corrugated Paper Collection and adhered these over the ribbon.

 I also added a journaling strip and die cut from the Echo Park Merry Christmas collection. From there I added a few Christmas diecuts and images on the page. Also, I saved the snowflake negative pieces and used these to decorate my trees and added four photo corners to the edges of my base layer. A simple, but sweet Christmas page to add pictures to later.

I hope you have enjoyed my project for today and that I have inspired you to get started on your Christmas pages.  As always I thank you for visiting the Flamingo Scraps Blog. If you would like to check out the online Flamingo Scraps store, please click here to get started shopping!
