Ink & Share November Blog Hop - Happy Holidays


Welcome to Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop


It's been a long while since I participated in Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop.
Too long that I had to go searching for all the graphics.
So our prompt this month was Happy Holidays and this photo below.



Inspired I was by this photo and I came up with a very simple layout...
I am strapped for time at this time of the year, just like everyone.

Using a piece of Garden Green 12 x 12  Cardstock for my base
Then I added 2 Strips of Painted Christmas DSP along the top and the bottom.

Next I added my photo mats for the 2 - 4 x 6 photos. Using the same DSP as the strips.
Calypso Coral Cardstock for the inner frames of the photo mats.

I LOVE  this Christmas Season Stamp and matching Seasonal Label Dies.
Buy it for 10% off when brought as a Christmas Season Bundle.
This stamp set has multiple leaf stamps including the Holly leaves,
pinecones and berry stamps.
I chose to use Soft Sea Foam Ink and Evening Evergreen to create my Holly leaves
Stamping firstly in Soft Sea Foam then re-inking using the same colour then using a dauber to add highlight of  Evening Evergreen to the outer edges of the leaves. 

I used Early Espresso and Real Red for my stems and holly berries.  With the matching
dies it makes it so much easier to cut them out with the Mini Stampin' Cut & Emboss.

Lastly I added the Merry and Bright from Delicate Baubles Die set.
First I cut the background layer in Real Red Cardstock
Then I cut the actual Bauble die out of Basic White Cardstock.
Then I wanted to bring the Garden Green Cardstock into the Bauble so I cut
another die in Garden Green and cut away the words
Merry and Bright and stuck that right over the top of the Basic White layer.


Here is the completed layout without photos as I will use it for this year's photos

 Please follow along the Blog Hop and check out everyone's
