#christmasjoy using Cocoa Vanilla Studio Merry & Bright by Kerryn Fry

Hi everyone!
Today I'm sharing my final page with the collection,
Cocoa Vanilla Studio Merry & Bright.
I only have a few scraps left.
The photos were taken on Christmas day 2012,
some great snaps of my Great-Niece in her special outfit.
It didn't stay clean for long
and I think that was her brother's present.

The page started with 12x12 Bazzill Kraft cardstock,
the perfect base for the gorgeous colours in this range.
The two portrait photos have two layers underneath,
The soft pink of Joy to The World
and the wood panel of Season Greetings.

I've layered more of the patterned papers in a 't' shape on the page
and then outlined the lighter paper Oh Christmas Tree
with a fake stitch border, using a black gel pen.
All have the flowers have been hand cut
from the remaining piece of Joy to the World.
Some flowers have been lifted with foam tape,
the other stuck directly to the base cardstock.

The Christmas trees, holly and journal spot are 
Each tree has been lifted with foam tape
and then staggered on the page.
The journal strip and heart flag were hand cut 
from the Oh What fun page and added with foam tape.
Using foam gives these elements some extra dimension.

The Christmas Tress and flowers have been given
a little sparkle and decoration with Ranger Stickles Glitter Glue. 

The 2 Crafty Word Set 1 was used for the title,
the #merrychristmas has been covered with Worn Lipstick Distress Paint.
The #christmasjoy has been covered with Candied Apple Distress Paint.
Simple techniques that match the colours in the collection.
Stuck down directly to the papers.

Thank you for visiting the blog today.
I hope the page has inspired some Christmas scrapbooking.
Have a fantastic, relaxing weekend.
Hopefully there is some crafting time set aside.
Please join us again on Monday for Fiona's next project.
