My Mind's Eye - Holly Jolly Collection - "Noel"

Hello everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and have started the new year off just the way you wanted. I would like to share a very special holiday layout I created for the Spellbinders Design Team call. I created a sketch for the contest to showcase the beautiful Heirloom Ornaments die set.  

I used the “Bricks” template from The Crafter’s Workshop to create the fun brick wall pattern on the page. I love this effect! It reminds me of the brick fireplace that Santa comes down in all the Christmas books.  I love layering! I cut two strips from the patterned paper and matted them on deep red patterned paper. I cut a circle to match the red outer trim of the page. I then added Stickles in Candy Cane red around the circle.

Gina K. had the most beautiful stamps to accompany the set. I stamped each ornament using “Real Red” ink from Stampin’ Up. Then I die cut each stamped image and mounted them on green patterned paper from the collection. Once the ornaments were adhered to the page using foam squares, I added small ivory pearls to each ornament.

I used deep red ribbon from My Mind’s Eye Lush collection to make my ornaments appear as if they are hanging from the top of the page. I also created small bows and topped them with pearls.

The title was created using the Fancy Tags die from Spellbinders. Love this set! It is just beautiful for showcasing your sentiments and titles. I used an Anna Griffin 3-D title sticker for the title. I applied small ivory pearls to the edge designs of the label.

TIP: The label was not long enough so I die cut two of them, cut the end off of one of them and attached them so the title sticker would fit.
