Christmas Layouts

Hi there. I've been pretty lax last month and only now do I have time to sit down and post my January layouts. Blame it on a busy January. I've also been doing kid's classes and haven't had as much time to work on layouts.  I did manage to finish two Christmas layouts so at least got those in. Still have a lot of Christmas layouts to do.

The first one, I've also used to enter the My Creative Scrapbook January sketch challenge.  This is the sketch:

Team Work
I love the bright colours of this paper line. I used three photos instead of just the one but I pretty much stayed to the rest of the sketch. I love pre-Christmas traditions and every year, we make a gingerbread house. This year Miss C got to work with her cousin to build and decorate one together.
I just love the bright reds and all the non traditional Christmas accents and ephemera.
The background paper is just lovely, adding that festive touch to the layout without overpowering it. For the top border, I used several paper strips, one of which I used my scallop punch on.

Products Used
Patterned papers fromPhoto Play Paper Dear Santa collection and Echo Park The Story of Christmas collection
Die cuts from Echo Park The Story of Christmas collection
Stickers from Photo Play Paper Dear Santa collection
Puffy glitter alphas from My Mind's Eye Cozy Christmas collection

Let's Trim The Tree
I love the cool grey colour of the background paper; a good foil for the greens and reds on the page. It was so great to stay at my sister in-law's house for Christmas and the first thing we did was decorate the tree. 
I stenciled gesso over a damask mask before layering on the background papers. I also fussy cut the presents and trees from one of the patterned papers.
I love the Christmas carol paper and wanted to keep that as an accent.

Products Used
Unknown as I can't seem to find the kit I used.
