I created this layout using papers from his new Christmas collection, Merriment and Collage Mini Papers.
As I'm looking at this, I'm thinking, what did I do to those bells?
I think the Sizzix chipboard bells were covered with patterned paper and foil paper, painted, crackled with Rock Candy Crackle paint, glittered(Rock Candy Glitter), and inked. The Tim Holtz Ribbon Strips, On the Edge Star Cluster, and Packages are all new dies, I lightly painted the larger package with Picket Fence stain, let it dry, and then printed my journaling. Usually I print out my title or journaling on regular printer paper, then tape the chosen die-cut over top with removable tape and run through the printer again. Much nicer looking than my handwriting!
There's some of Tim's new trimmings, his stars (alcohol inked), and his white rub-ons. The word "Believe" is Tim Holtz Industrious stickers, altered with alcohol ink, glitter, and a bit of Picket Fence paint.
Loved using the Christmas bell die-cuts, can't wait to get that die!
I love this photo of my son, daughter and niece. Someone told them they could hear Santa's bells outside, so they ran over to the window to see if they could see Santa! They looked so cute, all standing there at the window.
I still have two more layouts to share, but I'll save those for another day!
Have a great day,
