    Default Christmas 2004

    Not sure why I agonized so much over this layout, but I did. And the boards were down, I was going nuts. I had a whole request for advice post ready to go (and emailed it to Delia who gave me some feedback (sorry for ignoring it!)

    I have a ton of patterned holiday paper, and I felt the need to use it. That's why the tree and Santa strips are used. I have a HUGE stack of seasonal paper that I felt compelled to buy because it was on clearance. Mistake. I doubt I will use a third of it. I suck at using patterned papers. I need to steal some good ideas at incorporating such paper into layouts.

    Here's Christmas 2004. I'm not sure how I feel about the ornaments on the left page, but I really didn't know what else to do with them. They looked stupid on the red mat with the tree. I matted the tree strip with red (not sure how well that shows up in the picture) and made the Santa strip a little smaller on the page so it appeared to be matted there too.

    Very well done! I was working with some ribbons while digi scrapping today and I thought, "those should be easy enough to do while paper scrapping!" How odd that you did those too! TFS!

    There is not a thing wrong! The way you used the christmas tree embellishment like you would a photo (with a mat and all) was a great idea! And using the patterned papers in strips was a good idea too for bordering. Well done.

    I like it. I have issues using those PP packs from Joann's. So I stopped buying them and I buy 2 or 4 sheets of PP that's in the same manufacturers line...Basic Grey have some nice Christmas lines.
