Little Scraps of Heaven Designs' Christmas Hop


Welcome to the Little Scraps of Heaven Designs DT CHRISTMAS HOP!  Our Design Team has prepared some great holiday projects to help inspire you to get those last minute Christmas gifts done!

There will be all kinds of Christmas Hop "Candy" along the way, and a chance to win an amazing $100 GRAND PRIZE shopping spree at Little Scraps of Heaven Designs! To qualify, you must "Follow" and "Comment" on all the blogs participating in this Christmas Hop.  So grab your cocoa or your eggnog, sit back and get ready to be inspired!

If you have hopped over from Doris' blog then you are right on track! If you just happened across my blog and would like to start at the beginning, start here at Tricia's blog.

Today I have created a two-page layout to share with you entitled "The Nutcracker". 

(click to view larger images)

The files used on this layout are "Nutcracker", "Christmas Borders", and "Catching Snowflakes" which are all from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. Here are some close-up photos:



I just LOVE the plaid and music sheet papers together.



I designed the title in eCal (SCAL for the Sizzix Eclips) using a font on my computer.


I used some pink vellum for the Sugar Plum Fairy's wings and added some shimmery silver ink on the edges.


This snowflake border is actually called the Snowman Border in the "Christmas Borders" file because it has a large snowman to go with it.  After I cut the snowflake border out using some Core'dinations glitter paper, it just seemed to disappear into the background paper so I created a Blackout Shadow for it using the same green paper I used on the photo mats.  Much better!

I did the same Blackout Shadow for these snowflake embellishments (which are from the "Catching Snowflakes" pattern).

Thank you so much for joining in our LSHD Design Team Christmas Hop.  Don't forget to "follow" me and leave a comment to be eligible to win my Hop "Candy" AND the $100 Shopping Spree at Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.  In the spirit of The Nutcracker, one lucky person will win a Music Sheet embossing folder from me!  Merry Christmas and best wishes for a wonderful holiday season!

Next up is Amanda B.

  2. Love that you allow for more than 1 picture in your layouts and that the pictures are the main focus of the pages.. TFS!! BTW I sort of snooped your pictures and I really like that you fill your layouts and frame them on a wall!! I wish more people would also do this.. Glad I am not the only one.

    1. Thank you so much! Yep, my style is pretty much the more pictures the better -- mainly because I take so many that it's hard to just choose one or two LOL! I'm with you in that the main focus should be the pictures -- thanks for noticing my wall. It was the perfect solution for decorating my scrap room :)
