The Mistletoe & Holly Classic Kit is to die for! I looked forward to getting the December Noel Mignon kit so I could get some pictures from Christmases past scrapbooked. For some reason, I have a hard time scrapbooking Christmas photos, probably because it is such a busy time of year--I just run out of time to scrapbook. I take so many pictures in December and have a huge backlog of printed photos that need to be scrapped--and this month's kit is just what I need to get the job done!
For today's layout I took a cue from a layout I saw on Pinterest---sometimes I need to go there for inspiration and a starting point, it gets my creativity going. I used a layout found on Little Scraps of Magic blog and loosely scraplifted it. Here is the finished product...
I popped the die cut up off of the page using Pop Dots. I really like adding a little dimension to some of the embellishments when I can.
The best part of making this layout was figuring out which embellishments I wanted to use from the kit and where I wanted to place them. There are always so many great bits and pieces in the Noel Mignon kits---it makes it very easy to embellish my layouts.
I had so many many photos of my son opening his Christmas gifts, so the second "half" of this layout is actually a 12x12 collage of photos from Christmas morning.
I liked the way this layout turned out so much, that I created an identical layout for the photos of my daughter opening her gifts!
Thank you for checking out the blog today...I will see you next week!
