Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow Layout

This layout was created using patterned paper from a scrapbook kit.  I simply added a few die cuts and embellishments to it.
The title was cut three times from the Winter Frolic cartridge and the silhouettes were cut from the Teresa Collins Holiday Silhouettes digital cartridge.
I added a strip of white paper to the bottom of the right hand page so it would coordinate more closely to the left page.  I then added the silhouettes to the snow.
Chipboard stickers and some large snowflakes punched from the the Martha Stewart Himalayan Snowflake punch were added to the layout.  I also added some bling to the centers of the snowflakes.
The silhouettes were cut out twice to create a shadow and then accented with my white gel pen.

There's No Snowman Like You Layout

This winter themed layout was created with the Winter Frolic cartridge for the snowmen and title and the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge for the tag.
To create my layout, I added a strip of white paper to the bottom of the pages to give the look of snow.
The title was accented with my white gel pen, snowflake stickers and Candy Cane Trendy Twine for the snowman's scarf.
The snowflake stickers found in my stash were used throughout the two page layout.
The snowmen faces were stamped with the Peachy Keen Princess Faces stamp set with some coloring and chalk for the cheeks.
I added lots of doodling with my white gel pen to the die cuts and photo mats.
The tag was created with a large fabric sticker from my stash.  I added some snowflakes and finished it off with Candy Cane Trendy Twine.
Blue Berry Trendy Twine was used for the bow for the snowman and Candy Cane was used for the scarf.

December 25 Layout

I have another double page layout I created using some patterned paper from a scrapbook kit.  The patterned paper makes it super easy to put a layout together.
The gingerbread cookies were cut from the Jolly Holidays cartridge and the tag was cut from the Teresa Collins Christmas Sentiments digital cartridge.
Each of the gingerbread cookies were stamped with the Peachy Keen Princess Faces stamp set and accented with some Stickles.  A Trendy Twine bow was added to each of the gingerbread cookies as a finishing touch.
I added some chipboard stickers and wooden gingerbread themed cuts to embellish the layout.
I love using tags on my layouts so I added this double tag as an embellishment.  The tag was accented with some stickers and finished off with some Holly Berry Trendy Twine.

Holiday Traditions Layout

This simple layout was created on a patterned background which included the title of the layout and the border on the left page.
The Christmas Solutions cartridge was used for the ornaments and Santa sleigh.  The Teresa Collins Christmas Sentiments Digital cartridge was used for the tag.
This fun tag was accented with Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine and a felt Santa hat from my stash.
The silhouette of the Santa sleigh was the perfect accent for a page that I needed lots of photo mats.
The ornaments were embellished with a few pieces of bling and hung with more Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine.

Merry & Bright Layout

The layout was created with some patterned card stock and a few embellishments.  I chose to make the twine the focus of my layout and not use any die cuts.
I added several different of colors of Trendy Twine to accent my layout.  The string of lights was outlined with Candy Cane Trendy Twine and the string for the letters was outlined with Holly Berry.
The ornaments were hung with Peppermint Stick and Holly Green Trendy Twine.  All four of these twine colors were the perfect holiday colors to compliment my layout.  Some bling accents were added to the title and ornaments.
The Christmas tree was created with Holly Green Trendy Twine by cutting the strips of twine and gluing them to form the tree shape.  The tree was accented with some chipboard stickers and also a couple of chipboard presents. I finished off the layout by adding some sticker sentiments to the layout.

Merry Christmas Layout

Today is my design day over at Trendy Twine and I have this double page 12x12 Christmas layout to share.
This layout was created using the Joys of the Season cartridge for all of the die except for the candy canes.  All of the candy canes were cut from the Simply Charmed cartridge.
The train was accented with Candy Cane Trendy Twine and linked together using Black Licorice.  The candy cane banner was joined together using Holly Berry twine.
I added a Santa brad, a button elf, gingerbread buttons and some gifts to the train.  Each of the gifts were topped off with a Trendy Twine bow.  A few little candy canes and chipboard candies finished off the train.
The title was popped up on foam dots for added dimension.  Each of the photo mats were accented with a triple bow to give the appearance of large gifts.
The hand cut tag and flag were both stamped with a sentiments from the My Creative Time "All Around Christmas" stamp set.  A large button with a Holly Berry bow was the perfect accent to the scalloped circle.

Let It Snow Layout

This layout was created using the Paper Doll Teen Scene cartridge for the dolls and the Winter Frolic cartridge for the title.
I used some die cuts from my stash to create the border around the first page and used the coordinating piece on the second page by cutting it in half.
 
Using my Gypsy, I hid the faces of the dolls and used the Wide Eyed and Princess Peachy Keen Face stamps for the dolls.  I added some chalk to their cheeks and a a little bit of color to the eyes and lips.
The large snowflakes are punched from the Martha Stewart Himalayan punch and accented with bling centers.
I braided some Black Licorice Trendy Twine to create the scarf for the girl and wrapped it around her neck.  She looks pretty trendy with the twine scarf.
