Oh Christmas Tree | Stuck?! Sketches DT Layout

Hi there!

I'm back with my second post for today, this time sharing the new sketch challenge over at Stuck?! Sketches!

I always love creating with Laura's sketches, and this one was no exception! Here is the lovely sketch...

I decided to rotate the sketch 90 degrees counter-clockwise as I wanted my photos going vertically down the page. Here is my layout...

"Oh Christmas Tree"

I really love the Pinkfresh Studio Christmas Wishes range, and I've already used it for a few Christmas themed layouts that I've created over the past month or so! The patterned papers have such great designs that it makes it so easy to put a layout together! 

Since this sketch had three photos, I decided to use it as an opportunity to scrap photos of each of my children decorating our Christmas tree!

Here are some closeups of my layout so that you can see all of the details...

I LOVE the rubber stickers that are part of this collection! I added two of them here as well as a Freckled Fawn glitter chipboard star which I mounted up with foam tape.

For my title, I cut the word 'Christmas' out of one of the patterned papers and combined it with the coordinating puffy alpha stickers from this collection. The wood veneer Christmas tree was leftover from a mini kit that I purchased from D-lish Scraps. I left it raw and just added a little gold star to the top of it!

In the bottom left hand corner of the layout I created a little cluster that includes another rubber sticker (which had the perfect phrase for my layout), as well as a gorgeous gold sequin bow and a cherry blossom, both from D-lish Scraps.

Underneath the photos I added another one of the rubber stickers (I seriously could have used the whole pack up on one layout, I had to restrain myself!), as well as a word strip that also came in the D-lish Scraps Christmas mini kit.

Here I added another Freckled Fawn glitter chipboard star. I love that by adding foam tape to the back of it, it looks as though its floating above the layout! I finished the layout off with a few star sequins and some gold Color Shine ink splatters.

If you haven't done so already, I hope that you'll pop on over to the Stuck?! Sketches blog and take a look at the fabulous layouts that my fellow design team members have created! We hope that you'll play along with us this month by creating a layout based on this sketch! Link up your layouts on the Stuck?! Sketches blog by January 29th to be in the running to win a prize from one of our very generous sponsors:

We will also be choosing a scrapbooker from each of our challenges to be a guest designer with us at a later date!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and taking a look at my layout! Thank you to those who take the time to leave lovely comments as well - it is very much appreciated!
