Daily layout challenge - day 9

How about a Christmas layout? This one was a lot of fun! There are pockets and folders which means lots of places for photos. Don't let the appearance fool ya'!

I don't remember what paper I used; I think it was a combination of American Crafts and Adornit.

As you can see the front part opens up so you can put more photos on it; that's where the tags come in. Put a photo on one side and journal on the other side (the white/ivory side). I created a pocket by folding a piece of cardstock in half and then placing under the paper where it's going. Hole punch on each side and used ribbon looped through another piece of ribbon to keep in place. Voila! the center of the tri-fold is for the main photos, perhaps a group photo or the favorite pic of the bunch.

On the coordinating page there are a bunch of diamonds where I can add small photos and embellies. Like I said, great layout for tons of photos. Afterall, when it comes to Christmas photos how can you pick only one or two photos?

On the snow man and snowflakes I used Tim Holtz's BIGZ die and Rock Candy to get the tiny cracks. I adhered cardstock to a cereal box and then cut out on the dies. I also used stickles to color in the snowman. The tree line is a12 inch Quickutz cookie cutter; I cut out a total of three 12 inch strips. The 3rd on was to cut up and use for a dimensional effect with pop dots.

The punches are MS and EK.



  1. Great layout. I am impressed that you are able to get one of these a day done. It takes me hours sometimes just to do one card.

  2. Thanks! I often draw out on a notebook a layout pattern so I can put things together. I seldom do it cold :-)thanks!

  3. Love your LO! Great way to add extra photos!
