'tis the season {creative embellishments}

hello scrappy friends!

i've got very merry nostalgic CHRISTMAS layout to share today. “nostalgic”, because it is with my little doll ELISE when she was still enjoying pink and princesses. now she is almost 11 and she has a lot of favorite colors, but pink is not one of them anymore - 


 to create my page i used WEBSTER'S PAGES "waiting for SANTA" paper line, THE CRAFTER'S WORKSHOP and TIM HOLTZ masking templates, distress inks, SPARKLE N SPRINKLE red embossing powder and CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS chippies of course. 

to alter my background i used green and red distress ink and with TIM HOLTZ masking templates. as a finishing touch i added small dots with STICKLES "christmas red" glitter glue. 

 i added also a bit of snowflake pattern with dimensional paste and THE CRAFTER'S WORKSHOP "mini circle explosion" masking template. i fussy cut the green ornaments from the pattern paper.

 i added the poinsettia flowers… 

 … and chipboard arrows {made from CE chevron border / background chipboard set – i cut one of the borders in pieces and altered the small arrows with SNS firecracker red embossing powder

yo embellish my layout, i used snippets from the journalling cards, matching this paper line...

and fussy cut elements from the 12 x 12" pattern papers.

i decorated my CHRISTMAS tree with a package of vintage valentine's day heart shape shimmering brads from MAKING MEMORIES. the colours were perfect match for my design.

here is a list with some of the products, i used on this page:

i hope you enjoyed today’s post!
