Good Thursday morning to all! This is Gaby and
today I have a How-To-Scrapbook your picture Christmas cards tutorial.
(I had been working on creating a pop-up hearts card for today but my Gypsy was being stubborn).
I am new to scrapbooking (a year) so this is my first Layout using those Christmas picture cards that we don't know what to do with them (I always feel a bit hesitant to cut them or just store them as they are).
First, I had to decide whether to make a one page LO or a two-page. I prefer the two-page LOs but this year I only received 3 picture cards so I decided to create a one-page LO. We all have to have a one pager for the first and last page of an album, right?
Secondly, I had to decide what color paper I had that will match the colors on my cards to use and the how I was going to place them. Brown was a constant, so I chose brown for my base and found that I had a DCWV Christmas stack with papers that match perfectly.
Third, the decision of the design (I followed a sketch provided on the Cricut Circle blog) had to be made. Additionally, I had to incorporate stamping and buttons to meet the requirements.
I inked everything with distress walnut ink and added two tabs to each side. I used a EK punch and stamped the word Christmas and the year 2010 and adhered with Tim Holtz mini paper clips.
Thanks for visiting and leaving sweet comments. You can always visit me at GabyCreates.com.
