Christmas magic

I've never worked so long on a scrapbook layout in my life!! This was a solid two-day effort! I had inspiration from both Tammy and Monique from Everyday Cricut. The papers are awesome (Pink Paisley) and more cricut'ing than I've done on a layout in a LONG time. And, then I stamped, and I stickled, and I chipboard'ed, and I embellished galore!! But, when I was done I had to admit it was one of my most favorite spreads ever. Cartridges were: Christmas Cheer, Christmas Noel Solutions, Winter Wonderland, Snow Friends, and Storybook. In the title, I actually used chipboard for "magic" to give it more dimension. I inked (chocolate CTMH ink) just about every part of the page except the snowflakes and snowgirl. The window from Noel shows Emma looking through it (looking really cold!!) and I used Glossy Accents to make it look like real glass panes. (tip: Use clear & blue stickles for snow/ice!) I used Storybook to create a little book (lower left corner on the right page) to hold extra pictures. By cutting through the plastic sleeve of the page protector we can look through the book anytime without removing the entire layout. Also, it is a really thick book because of embellies so I used a big brad to hold the pages together (and mostly closed).

The other products are PTI Hibiscus Burst, Dark Chocolate, and Rustic Cream cardstock as well as the PTI stamp set Silent Night, and Summer Sunrise ink and cardstock for the star.

Hope you like it!
