Stick it down challenges – December

Hi There,

Over the busy festive period I don’t usually get too much scrapbooking done, I know that JYC or December Daily are beyond me! I hope you have all had a great Christmas time and have a happy new year.

This month I tried both the single and double page sketch challenges from the Stick it Down  blog. First up the double page with sketch below.

I tried to keep where possible to square elements and lots of florals. This layout was a family friends recent wedding which was just a lovely autumnal wedding, the highlight being whole lamb joints with Moroccan spices for the main!

Their colour theme was reds, navy and oranges with a real rustic feel so I wanted to represent that in my layout.

Single Sketch

The Single Sketch was quite similar to the double page with square photos seperated.

I kept the 2 areas for embellishment with photos from our tree. We don’t have a traditional tree and each year we buy one or two new family chosen decorations so it looks like a total random mishmash which suits us.

I sewed a vellum triangle tree filled with glitter and sequins, I saw the idea from Laura Whitaker‎ on the Scrapbook like a superhero Facebook page. I added some silhouette cut stars from glitter cardstock – I added a lot of splatters and tree stamps from a Shimelle Christmas kits from a few years ago.
