This week at Shop and Crop, we were inspired by Christmas Carols. I got to work with my favourite Christmas range in the shop - Fancy Pants' Happy Holidays. I love this range. Seriously love.
One of the great things about it is that it is versatile, with deep Christmas-ey reds and golds offset with bright pinks, oranges and blues. So it lends itself equally well to non-Christmas layouts as it does to Christmas pages.
Journaling: "Put music on Mummy!" you say, pointing up to the CD player on the kitchen bench. You love dancing around the kitchen with me. We twirl. We clap to the music. You go get the wooden logs from a train set and march around the room, beating them to the music. My sweet little drummer boy".
Journaling: "Walking in a Winter Wonderland... back to Auntie Roschi's place, Luebeck Germany December 1982"
This dark, luscious chocolate brown paper is my favourite piece of background paper at the moment. I've roughed up the papers and inked them, sanded back the photo edges and added ink to the flower embellishments. The flourishes are from the Happy Holidays stamp in the Fancy Pants range - I just stamped a few times onto the paper, then cut around the flourishes and adhered them.
Are you feeling the Christmas vibe yet?
Now that we're back from holidays, I can turn my head towards Christmas. Well, after this weekend I can...
This weekend we will be descended upon by half a dozen three year olds, for a Cars party. I'm off to start baking...
Have a fun weekend. See you next week with some photos hopefully :)
