Scrapbook layout using Letters to Santa collection

Hello all

Elaine here again today bringing you a layout using the wonderful, traditional Letters to Santa collection.

image

To create this layout I first took a sheet of Santas Workshop Paper from the collection to use as the background. I then took the Poinsettia Frame die cut paper and used a craft knife to carefully cut around the edges of the printed cluster on the paper creating a slot to tuck my photo into. I then centrally mounted the die cut paper over the top of the Santas Workshop background paper and, after mounting my photo on Cherry Weave Kaisercard, I tucked the photo into the slot I had made and secured centrally on the die cut paper using double sided tape.

I then took the Christmas Strip stencil and used the Ranger texture paste along the bottom creating the row of wrapped parcels. I then inked and added two wood flourishes.

Next I took a Kaisercraft Rhinestone Flourish and placed it to the left of the photo behind a cluster that I made using collectables from the collectables pack and several poinsettias I  made using the Poinsettia decorative die. To create an even more luxurious cluster I added Mini Fire Red Blooms and wood flourishes inked with a Vine Ink pad.image

For the top cluster I used less layers of the decorative die to create a smaller flower and I added another inked wood flourish and two pine cones from the collectables pack.

To finish it all off I took the Kaisercraft glue stick and smudged over some of the elements and added fine white glitter from my stash to give some extra sparkle finishing it off with the sentiment from the collectable pack.

I thouroughly enjoyed this collection and I hope you will too.
