Christmas Layout

Hi Everyone! Sorry it's been a couple of weeks since I've posted or participated in a challenge. We were on vacation and trying to get ready and then recover. We're back, had a great time and have jumped back to normal life again.

Today I'm posting a Christmas Layout I made with my techniques class this past weekend. I used the clear cards to make the layout interactive and give me extra room for journaling and pictures! Thanks to my friend Sue I cut the cards in half and used a paper "binding" to attach it to my layout. What a great way to stretch the use of the clear cards! Thanks Sue!!

On the clear card you can add a picture to the front and a picture and then on the mat or you could use journaling in one of the spots. For one space you get 3 pictures, very cool. I've added a clear card on both the right and the left pages. I can't wait to fill the pages with Christmas pictures from this year. Hey, I'm ahead of the game, yeah!

Supplies: (all CTMH unless specified otherwise)
Creative Basics Mistletoe Collection - paper and gold ribbon
New England Ivy Cardstock
Cocoa Cardstock
Square clear card
Stocking Style stamp set
Evergreen stamp set
Cocoa ribbon round
