Do you ever find yourself after the holidays with tons of leftover product? If you are like me you do, and you tuck it away for next year. Then when the next year rolls around you want the new product on the shelf so there still sits as lonely as ever that cute holiday paper from the previous year. So I have a challenge for you...USE that holiday paper for something else. And yes I understand this does not always work as it would be a little strange to have Santa collecting Easter eggs, but when it is generic enough use it.
So let's deconstruct this layout
So all of the products here are the girls' paperie "tinsel & twig" except for the yellow gingham which was from the previous line. So all Christmas products here.
start with your base which is 12x12 yellow gingham paper
trim the green dots paper to 10.5 x 10.5
the first strip of red across the green is the scrap you just cut. The red is on the backside of the green.
LOVE these crepe paper snowflakes!!! But this is a spring layout so they won't work.... or will they?
Also notice the cute packaging there come on...hmmmmm
Carefully remove the center off the snowflake
I thought the red circle still looked a bit like Christmas so I just trimmed some of the tinsel off. I think they are so cute!!!
I also added a strip of red Christmas flower paper 1.5 x 12 across the layout.
And if you can see, I matted my photos on the layout with the packaging of the snowflakes.
So here is a look at the layout again. I decided that the red circle was too much so I punched out a third photo and overlapped the photo to a Christmas sticker. I finished the layout with the title PRINCE from Christmas chipboard letters.
The journaling reads...
" Today I went to the pond and found a frog. My mom said you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find a prince."
So enjoy Christmas early or late, but enjoy Christmas all year round.
