Getting into the Christmas spirit

Here is my kickoff to the Christmas season. This layout is of my baby boy, who is now 6, on his first Christmas. Isn't he adorable?

My Boy- 2 fun techniques

In this layout about my sweet #3 son, I played around with two new techniques.

1. The letters attached to the frame was created by manipulating letter punches so they overlap each other & a stamped frame and simply filling them with the same color as the frame. Placing the photo behind, makes it appear that the frame & letters are all one piece.

  2. Notice the grungy, wrinkled look on the flag strip? I did that by using the awesome crop feature on the Natural Composition Overlay stamp.

I also used the recolor & crop embellishment functions. MDS2 is so stinkin' cool! The more I play around, the more I love it!

Embellished Composition Book

I love to decorate composition books! It is so easy to do and makes the book look so cute. It even makes a great gift. Here is the latest one I created using the Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper and a few other fabulous Stampin' Up! goodies.
I hope you like it.
