Xmas Joy Layout

Good morning everyone,

This is my last layout for the year! It is for the White With 1 December Challenge (White + Red + Xmas photo). I decided to use a giant bauble as a feature and  for this layout I used NO pattern paper! The red and white dot you can see on the page is actually washi tape! I have had this roll on my desk for ages and my personal challenge was to use it! I have to say it was a lot of fun!!! I made a frame around the layout and also stuck some on some scrap cardstock and die cut it (the banner under photo). I also coloured some scrap cardstock with Distress Ink "Festive Berries" using the direct on paper technique and punched shapes out and die cut some branches too! Used the same ink with Xmas stamps. My bauble is actually a chipboard circle frame wrapped in Baker's Twine! See how versatile chipboard is and why I am so addicted to it!

This is my original title using die cut Xmas socks and Prima Alphabet letters

Some gorgeous die-cut Poinsettas!
For some tiny details I added more Baker's Twine, red embroidery floss and red cotton thread attached to buttons, stamped tags, paper clip! I hand-cut a zig zag border around. And yes my signature hand-stiched border around the layout.
Thank you for visiting! Have a lovely Xmas! I really hope to visit you while on holidays!
Til next time! Happy Scrapping!
