Here is the first Layout:
Paper: American Crafts Merry Mint Collection
Cardstock: Stampin' Up and Coredinations
Page is 12x12 with 4 squares cut to 5.5"x5.5" and sewn together
Photo mats are 4.25"x4.25" and 4.25x6.25
Little boy, wagon and bows are all cuts from Everyday Paperdolls
Little boy 3.5"
bows varied sizes all less than 1" (done on design studio)
The santa hat is from paper dolls dress up.
The dog is from Everyday paper dolls he is cut at 4". I also cut out a reindeer from paper doll dress up and cut off his antlers and attached them to the dog. The nose is a little red button with red stickles on it.
I also applied flock to the dog by running him through my xyron machine and then sprinkled on the light brown flock, to give him a fuzzy feel and appearance.
Here is an up close of the zig sag sewing that holds the 4 blocks of cardstock together
The second layout is a much simpler layout:
Patterned paper: Stampin' Up Christmas Cocoa
Cardstock : SU! real red, old olive and soft suede
Snowflakes are cut from the Winter Woodland cartridge @ 2.5"
I applied a coat of the White SU! Shimmer paint then added flat back pearls and rhinestones
Holly Leave is also from the Winter Woodland cartridge and is cut @ 2", embossed with the cuttlebug swiss dots folder and distressed with Tim Holtz walnut stain distressing ink.
This reindeer is also from the Winter Woodland cartridge and is cut @ 5" on SU! kraft cardstock and covered with a coat of SU! champagne shimmer paint (LOVE this stuff!!) It is also inked around all the edges of the cardstock, even though it's hard to see on the page on the left. There are also snowflakes stamped with real red ink on the background paper. You just can not see it in the photos. :(
Ribbon is from SU! (it is retired, but you can still order it from the clearance rack online through my website) it's called Alpine ribbon, you can see it here
