Cozy Christmas

The four posts below are my four favorite layouts that I made at the beginning of the year. I wanted to share since now it's at the end of the year and I thought it would be fun to look back. Now here's the layout I finished today.

Colors : Holiday Red, Clover Meadow, Vanilla Cream, Col White,

Papers : Hollydays ('06)

Stamps : Doodle Alpha, Simple Stitches (as a stitching guide)

Accents : Simple Alpha Dim Elements, Buttons (various), embrodiery floss (DMC),

This is my fav Christmas layout that I've made so far! I pulled out my old buttons that I haven't used in forever and just went to town! I haven't stitched on a layout in so long either. It just added the perfect touch I think. The layout uses Imagine's Proof Preview. The left side pretty much follows the layout instructions but the right is VERY tweaked. I also swapped some of the B&T paper cuts and placements to use up just one sheet of red instead of two. A couple more 2 page layouts and I think I'll finally be done with last year's Christmas pictures!

This is so sweet! I love the soft look you gave it with the stitching and the buttons. It reminds me of a quilted blanket. Just darling! Those are adorable pictures of your little ones as well.

Great Layout! I love that you added more pictures to the second page. I was just looking at that layout for our Christmas picture pages. I love the stitching too!

Fantastic page layouts. The pinks and greens for this one are superb - great non-traditional colors for the holidays. A blogging sister.
