Christmas is in the Air....... Echo Park Christmas Magic

 Hello Again Everyone

Anita back with you today and here is my first Christmas offering using the fab Christmas Magic Collection from Echo Park.

I thought this was perfect for scrapping some photos from our recent trip to a reindeer park and Oakley's first time meeting Santa. We wondered what he would make of the big guy in red....and he loved him!

A sheet of Capers Bazzill Cardstock backed the layout and I trimmed 1cm of the top and side of a sheet of Stuffing Stockings This left a nice frame of the cardstock showing around the edge of the layout.

The stockings were really lovely, but I just felt they over powered the page a little. 

So I used some white acrylic to brush across a large area of the layout and whilst it was still drying, sprinkled a coupe of different colours of ultra fine glitter across it....afterall, if you can't have sparkles at Christmas then when can you??

I rummaged through my alphabet sticker stash and found some really old stickers that I liked for the title.....Its nice to mix the fonts up sometimes.

I cut a few elements out of the sheets of Journalling Cards  and  3 x 4 journalling cards and these were used around the page in various places. I raised some of them up on foam pads to give some definition.

The Chipboard Frames were fab and I used the 2 largest ones to frame a photo and also to make a shaker box. The back of the box was a panel cut from the sheet of 6 x 4 Journalling Cards

Some of the little panels on the sheet of 3 x 4 Journalling Cards were perfect for my page. One was used for journalling a teeny bit and was tucked partially under the shaker box, the other one made a cute little frame for a small photo I printed out and popped on it.

I purchased some Christmas Lights Trim last year with the intention of using on a page, then took a break from scrapping, but i knew it would be great for this page. So I wrapped some round the large photograph and frame and also strung them across the top of the page ( I have ALWAYS loved lumpy embellishments!

In the chipboard frame pack, there are also a few little sayings and pictures ....so I picked out the Ho Ho Ho and the little present pile to finish the page off.

So that's my first page using this lovely collection...I hope you have enjoyed seeing it and maybe it's made you feel you might like some of the papers yourself to scrap your new photos from this years Festive Season. See you again Soon.

Have a fabulous lead up to Chrsitmas xx

Warmest wishes

Anita xx
