Scrapbooking: Pieces of Christmas

I'm loving that it's been a bit cooler this week here in SoCal. It reminds me that the holidays are sneaking up!!  -I'm so ready for them!

Here's a scrapbook layout that I made with Teresa Collins Designs new Christmas line: Christmas Home.  It was an assignment for Remember When where I only got some scraps to work with which is kind of fun!

I used my Selphy photo printer to print out the photos...I love that with a touch of a button I can get all my pics the perfect size with out having to PhotoShop them.

I fussy-cut out the holly berries and leaves and then added some Glossy Accents to the top of the berries.

And then I added a doily.  {I know you're totally shocked that I would do that, since I seem to add them to just about everything lately!}

And here's my journaling tag.  I just cut the cardstock down to the size I wanted, rounded the corners, stamped on some lines, and then wrote away with one of my favorite journaling pens, my ZIG Millennium .  Having my own handwriting on a layout (especially a Christmas one) seems to give me warm-fuzzies!

Using up scraps on a canvas

I saw this quote on Good Reads and knew I wanted to use it on some project sooner or later.  So when I got a design team assignment where I need to use a random assortment of Wendy's Art Parts and the leftover scraps from this project, I remembered the quote...and this is what I came up with:

Originally I was going to leave the canvas white and use the white letters on it like all those art pieces on Pinterest...but then I decided that if the house was going to be in color then then rest of the piece probably should be too....but that I'd leave it simple and clean instead of getting too artsy with it.

I adhered the scrap paper onto the Art Part pieces with Mod Podge and then whitewashed them to tone them down a bit.  Once all the individual pieces were dry I just glued them together and then added a few embellishments like the punched hearts (stapled together with the Tiny Attacher) and the resin keyhole.
