I was given some goodies from the Sleigh Ride Collection by Bo Bunny.
Basically, I got most of the papers from this collection pack and the stickers, too
Plus this great chipboard pack!
This collection is perfect for Christmas and winter photos, and has a unique blue, brown and gold colour combo. It was super fun to play with!
Just prior to creating my pages I was playing with my Silhouette software and I created a few Celtic designs, beginning with a knot and getting a little more elaborate from there. Turns out they were perfect for my creations with this collection! I guess I was embracing some of my Irish and Scottish sides
I based this layout around the wreath I created from a ring of Celtic knots. We actually snapped this photo the weekend before Christmas, it is not often that I scrapbook something that fast!
I added a pretty blue button from my stash as well as some Doodlebug twine, to help finish off the holly leaves that I die cut from two of the patterned papers. I added a bit of Ranger texture paste to the leaves, background and the trees.
The wood-grained trees were fussy cut from a patterned paper and I just love them. The numbers stickers are left over from the Simple Stories collection that I created with for my December reveal.
I layered two other patterns below the Celtic knot wreath, a beige colour behind the whole design and a softer blue beneath just the heart shapes. I really like the way they look together all layered up.
For this next page I was so excited to use this Celtic knot tree that I created! It is cut from a wood-grained paper and it actually looks like it has snow on it!
Again I added a button as well as some Doodlebug twine to adorn this page. I turned down one of the corners just to pull in an extra bit of pattern. It is an easy, old school trick when your page needs just a little something.
I added a bit of dry embossing to the grey cardstock frame that I layered behind all of my other elements.
'Joy" was fussy cut from one of the papers, it is a little hard to tell but I added Glassy Accents to the letters to help them pop.
I cut a few stars and covered them with Cinnamon coloured Stickles to adorn my tree, they look so pretty!
A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS
I used a lot of the chipboard embellishments on this page, layering them up for lots of impact.
The tree that I used as a title piece was fussy cut from a pattern, as was the deer head.
I created a pine bough cut file just for this page, I love the soft wispy look it adds.
I added some texture paste behind the central focal area on this page, I love the way it mimics the snow in the photo.
Thank you so much for visiting me today!
