First Christmas Photo and Some Cards

Merry Christmas to all of you who celebrate the holiday. Continuing on with the Christmas fun the other DT members have been sharing, here is a layout featuring Harrison's first Santa photo! Harrison is very social at the moment and just likes being around people so he really wasn't too fussed by meeting Santa.
While my cards below use older Christmas releases, this layout features two new release chipboard packs from Scrapmatts: CB1228 Christmas Ornaments 14 and CB1224 Holly 03. The Christmas tree charm in the top right is also from Scrapmatts (CH041 Christmas Trees #1).
I find cards are a great way to use up paper scraps and I have so many different bits of Christmas papers lying around, so my second project is a set of three Christmas cards which have a 'Peace' theme.
The Christmas tree on this card came pre-coloured in the green which made the whole card come together very quickly. I have used CB6079 Assorted Words 11 and CB6082 Christmas Trees 04.

My second card uses one of my favourite chipboard packs (CB1096 Reindeers 05) and CB1108 Words 24 Peace. Using gold embossing powder on chipboard is quick, easy and effective.




  1. I hope your first Christmas with Harrison went well Lauren - it's such a special time! I love the gorgeous photo on your layout and the gold embossing on the chipboard looks fabulous!
