Some Christmas layouts

This one was inspired by the December sketch challenge at Scrapping Clearly:

The shimmery gold was difficult to photograph - here's a detail shot:

Bazzill Basics Smoothies - Blackberry Swirl cardstock
Basic Grey Infuse - Suffuse patterned paper
Basic Grey Infuse - Inspire patterned paper
Crocheted lace
Corrugated cardboard
Kaisercolour White acrylic paint
Gold sequins
Upcycled lingerie ribbon
Value Craft Glitter Foam star

I've been putting off scrapping these Christmas pics from 2014, because they are blurry (relying on a kind strangers to take photographs for us). I finally decided to just do it! Despite being out of focus, the pictures still bring back memories of our special evening out in the city to see the Christmas lights.

I used a handmade embellishment on this page, to add interest and hopefully offset the poor quality of the photographs a bit.


This one was inspired by the December mood board challenge at Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia:

Bazzill Basics Smoothies - Blackberry Swirl cardstock
Pink Paislee C'est la Vie - Paper #3 patterned apper
Upcycled Christmas card
Green Tara Mini Tassel - White trim

I found the instructions for the origami fox online at:  http://en.origami-club.com/animal/animal%28small%29/fox/fox/index.html
