Hello friends and welcome back to my blog today. This month we are celebrating Christmas in July and I have a fabulous layout to share with you. This is designed using the new collection from Heartfelt Creations Celebrate the Season
I know many of you have pets ( as do I) and a gal who attends my classes in Oshawa owns a boarding kennel and she is also a fabulous photographer. So i had asked her if she had any winter photos i could use and she sent a few over and I chose this one. I am not sure of the dogs name, but he seriously looks like he is enjoying the romp in the snow doesnt he? Our pets sure how know to celebrate any season, winter spring, summer or fall.
Here are some close up detail images, enjoy!
layers under the photo, you can see a bit of the texture paste peeking through
and the sleigh detail with the eyelet outlet bling layers
Until next week, Happy Scrapping!

Instructions: Begin by selecting two papers from the collection, i used the snowflake background one and cut a 1 inch frame around the second one. This frame will lay directly ontop of the snowflake background. Cover base with clear gesso to prep the surface and set aside to dry, or dry with heat tool. When dry use template and texture paste to add texture to background, be sure to not place any where you think your photo layers will go. Heat set. Add a bit of gelato for colour, lightly mist with water to spread the colour and dry off with paper towel if too much colour is on. Dab with glue gloss pen and sprinkle with fairy dust, shake off excess. From coordination papers in collection cut three banner strips approximate 5.5 inches in length and varying widths to complement your photo. Cut strips of may arts gold ribbon and layer in between the banners you just created. Cut apart a Moroccan panel from creative embellishments and ink with gold pigment ink, adhere to either side of your photo. Cut your photo using wonky rectangles and cut a frame to go on top. From pre coloured paper in collection, cut out skates, sleigh, fence; mittens, two wreaths and two tags from tag sheet. Detail gifts, skates and mittens with glue gloss and fairy dust. Cut gate in half and fan in corner as shown. Add tags tucked in behind sleigh and add gifts, cut one wreath apart and tuck in photo corners; then add aksets to photo corner as shown. Stamp and cut 8 sets of small poinsettia on white card with dark brown chalk ink and colour with elderberry and pistachio dye ink. Mold with mat and stylus and add Minnie pearls to center. Add bling under sleigh layers and cut apart to have some coming out of corners in layout. Detail edges of layout with glue gloss and sprinkle fairy dust. Detail poinsettias with gold pigment ink and complete layout. Be sure to cut out a small tag from tag sheet for sub title.
