Melissa - Christmas Layout

Hello!  It's Melissa here and today I have a Christmas layout made with non-Christmas supplies.  I'm not a huge themey (is that a word?) scrapper, so I like to stretch my supplies.  I'm really loving white and kraft together at the moment, and so I thought I'd go back and revisit my favourite Kaisercraft release this year Mix & Match.  

My layout is an older photo of my oldest two kids having a photo with Santa at our local Christmas Family Fun Day.  The photos were taken by  Smiths City and given out free, so of course I had to get two (one for each child's album). 

Here is my layout:

I started with some texture paste and a star stencil, and then built my paper layers on top.  I had to add a pop of red and silver, and finished with the wood veneer stars and drops of India ink.

Thanks for looking!


  1. Hi Melissa, I also thought that the Mix & Match range would lend itself very well to a Christmas theme when I saw it, the red and craft really pops against the white in your layout making it look fabulous and of course the photo is the hero on this page - definitely says Christmas!

  2. Love it, Melissa! Mix and Match was one of my fave ranges too, and it looks fantastic here as a festive layout. :)

  3. For non traditional colours, you've totally worked this layout and that touch of red really makes it pop.

  4. Nice to see different colour combos for Christmas projects.

  5. Love the colour combo and the effect of the texture paste. Must give this a go :)
