Fiona - Christmas Countdown Layouts

Hi there, Fiona here, wow week two of the Christmas Countdown. I have thoroughly enjoyed creating these two layouts, it’s so much fun scrapbooking Christmas photos!!

My first layout is made using the versatile Kaisercraft BaseCoat Christmas Range. I have used a piece of gold Bazzill Basic cardstock, on top of that I have used Base Coat Christmas (Natural), on which I have embossed the red decorations, I then used a stencil and modelling paste to stencil some baubles, which once dry I embossed with gold embossing powder and added gold twine. Then I have layered my photo with strips of Basecoat Christmas - Christmas Bells and Flora. I have fussy cut the pinecones from Basecoat Christmas - Pine, and embossed.  Dried pine needles and Kaisercraft Captured Moments Pocket Stickers (Christmas wish) complete this layout.

My second layout is made using the awesome KaisercraftYuletide range of papers. I have distressed the edges of Yuletide Festive. I have fussy cut the Christmas tree from Yuletide Good Tidings and I goldembossed the decorations on the tree and added a gold star to the top. My photo is layered with a gloss gold cardboard and the leftover paper from Yuletide Good Tidings, both of which I have distressed the edges of.  My scroll is made by distressing and inking the edges, adding a rub-on verse and gold embossed skewers that hold the scroll. A piece of gold embossed decorative chipboard, and my title cut out of gloss gold card complete this layout.

I hope I have given you some inspiration to start scrapping all those Christmas photos.

 Happy Crafting!
