All I Want for Christmas by Romy Veul

This Christmas will be the first Christmas that I celebrate together with my boyfriend, Jeroen. I thought it would be a nice idea to dedicate a Christmas lay-out to that. That's why I took out the gorgeous Elf Magic collection and scrapped a photo of Jeroen with it. I used lots of chipboard present embellishments to make the lay-out fit my title "All I want for Christmas..."

My background consists of several punched layers of paper and a doily. I then adhered a chipboard Christmas tree on the left side of my lay-out and adhered some chipboard presents on top of it. The banner below my photo is from the 12x12 chipboard sheet. I found that it gave my lay-out a very festive look.

On the right side of the banner I also made a tiny cluster with three chipboard presents and a holly berry. I finished off my lay-out by adding some die-cut stars from the Noteworthy package.

Sweet by Bernii Miller

I created this layout using some of my favourite pictures of my daughter Abigail from a couple of years ago. Abigail used to have this obsession with lining objects up top to tail. So it was no surprise when I walked into the living room to hear Abigail announce "Ta-Da" as she showed me how she had lined up all the Christmas presents. It is this story that I wanted to record, so using the Gold & Silver collection was perfect, because it matched the colours of my home decor. 

I dipped into my Blossom collection and found it so easy to pull together this layout. Once you start with one BoBunny Blossom it becomes very hard to stop, as they are all so stunning! To add interest to the burlap I grabbed some measuring tape ribbon I had in my stash and folded them over each other to create some dimension. I love this effect.

Burlap Tip: The easiest way I found to attach the burlap was to sew it directly into place with my sewing machine. If you do not have access to a sewing machine, hand stitching would work great too.

  1. Gorgeous holiday pages, Kairo and Bernii! I just love how they are so different from each other, but still both really have a Christmas feel to them.
