2011 Greetings

All scrapbookers have pages they are proud of. That’s the case for me with this one.

2011 Greetings

As I’ve been reorganizing my scraproom, I came across some Christmas cards from 2011. One of my usual techniques when it comes to creating layouts to hold cards is to use some vellum and stitch a few rows. My sewing machine is out of commission, though, so I had to come up with something else.

The pouch is from the Pinkfresh Studio embellishment kit. Pinkfresh no longer does this monthly kit, but I was a subscriber for five or six months, so I had some pouches. I cut off the top flap of the pouch and used some 1-inch strip glue dots to adhere it to the page on three sides. Then, of course, I embellished the pouch.

I liked this layout so much that I created one for 2015 as well.

2015 'Tis the Season

I am so excited to be able to put this year’s cards right into this pouch once the season is over. They will be all scrapbooked before the year is done!

I am also very pleased to say that much of the products I used are from my stash. The Christmas trees and poinsettia decorations? I’ve had them for longer than 10 years. The cardstock I used for both pages is from Club Scrap, which means it’s been around a while too.

Also something to note: on the second page, I was thinking of using red enamel dots, and then I realized the Thickers font I used for the title also has lots of punctuation pieces on it. So I added those instead.
