Christmas recycling

Happy New year! This layout I did a bit of recycling from making my crackers. The leftover diamond shapes I thought I could use so stuck them down into snowflake type patterns. In the photo they look pretty card but in real life they are a very light pearly white. The snowflakes I made so I didn’t waste the glitter cardstock while making my personalised name tags.

I tried to keep quite a neutral colour scheme here just grey and white and included a see through bag I got from a studio calico kit in the background to hold my journalling.

I stamped a little bit in the background to give a more textured look and added on the sparkly snowflakes into my layered photo.

Hope you like it!

Christmas Crackers

Hello, Merry Christmas!

This year I decided to make homemade crackers for my family Christmas day. I used the silhouette template found here and brought some shiny pearlescent paper from Paperchase, cut the designs on my cameo. I added tinsel and cut out names using glitter Cardstock. I just love that font!

I also made paper hats adjustable with eyelets for smaller or larger heads. I included some Christmassy emblems like holly, stars and flamingos. It’s a bit of a running joke in our house about my mother in law and flamingos so with the tropical hints to the theming of this years’ Christmas I decided to include on for her. I’m not the best sewer but I had fun making them so that is all that matter.

 

Happy Holidays
