All Is Calm

One of the easiest ways for me to get into the holiday spirit is to scrapbook Christmas photos. I saved several photos from last year for this purpose; this is one of them.

All Is Calm

I’ll start with this–I love this photo! I was so glad to get this pic of my boys curled up on their pillows by the Christmas tree. Now, let’s talk about the layout.

  • I used vellum on the right side of the page. It has a copyright date on it from 2000! It’s crazy that I still have products that old in my stash–and I still have at least one more sheet of it. I think it looks great here, though. I paired it with some Felicity Jane papers, so it’s part of my Something Old, Something New series.
  • I got the idea for the title from the vellum, which has lyrics from a Christmas carol. Not the same song, but it started some Christmas songs going in my head, and that led me to my title. I embossed the larger letters with gold embossing powder.
  • Here’s the sketch I used for this page. I like how it showcases the paper.

So that’s this layout. If you want to know more, check out the process video.

I’ve got more Christmas layouts to come. Until next time!
