Thank you to everyone who stopped by my Annual Holiday Open House this past Saturday! It was such a fun day, and it was so good to see so many of you. I really appreciate your support of my business. The door prize winners were: Sherrill H., Mary L., Sue V., and Amy D.
For those of you who missed it, here are the sample pages that I made for the Open House. I used our new Christmas Joy Paper Pack, Stickers and Slide-In Pack along with our new Diamond Scroll, Medallion Frame Chain and Evergreen Border Maker Cartridges on these pages. For more ideas using these items, please visit the CM Blog that you can access from the homepage of my CM site.
If you would like to include any of these items – or others – on a Christmas Wish List, just email me a list of the items that you would like to receive and the names and contact info for your husband, boyfriend, mother, mother-in-law, sister, children, friend. I’ll do the ordering and even the gift wrapping! Don’t forget to include my February 19th-21st Camp Crop-A-Lot Weekend Scrapbooking Retreat ($150) or my January 23rd All-Day Workshop ($35) on your list. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to receive the gift of an entire day or entire weekend of scrapbooking?
The page on the left features the new Medallion Frame Chain Border Maker Cartridge. To make the tree on the right, create a tree template on a piece of scratch paper. Use your selected photos to determine the width of the tree. Using the template, cut the green paper to make the tree. Use the template to trace cut marks on your photos, or tape your photos to the template and cut to shape. The red garland on the tree are cutout pieces from the Diamond Scroll Border Maker Cartridge. Embellish with Christmas Joy Stickers. I adhered the Merry Christmas and Naughty or Nice stickers and the star with Foam Square Adhesives.
I used both the Medallion Frame Chain and Diamond Scroll Border Maker Cartridges on these pages. The bows on the tops of the trees are cutout pieces from the Diamond Scroll Border Maker Cartridge. I adhered the Wish List title and the white circle photo frame with Foam Square Adhesives.
The row of houses is from one of the sheets of paper in the Christmas Joy Paper Pack. The fence is made with the Picket Fence Border Maker Cartridge and the trees are made with the Evergreen Border Maker Cartridge. Add torn white cardstock for the snow in-between the fence and the trees. This idea is adapted from the CM Blog.
The roof-top is made with the Film Strip Border Maker Cartridge and a strip of red striped paper. Thread the red paper strip through the film strip border piece going in and out every two spaces. Cut a 2×2 square from the red paper and use the cut-out pieces from the Film Strip border to make the bricks. Punch a Picket Fence border and cut off most of the border to make the top of the chimney. Use Foam Square Adhesives to adhere chimney to add depth. Embellish with Christmas Joy Stickers. This idea is from the CM Blog.
I used both the Medallion Frame Chain and Diamond Scroll Border Maker Cartridges on these pages. The green scallops are 2″ circles punched with our Shape Maker and cut in half.
