Christmas Cheer – Rikki Graziani

With are so many fun and funky Christmas papers on the market there is something special about good old fashioned red and green.
Along with all the the traditional trimmings, baubles and poinsettias,
we have added some gingerbread making the PEACE AND JOY collection hard to resist.

 PAPERS: Peace and Joy Collection: P2604 Cheer, P2605 Comfort, P2609 Festivity, P2610 Gladness, P2608 Merry 
KC PRODUCTS: SS371 Sticker Sheet | CT Collectables
OTHER: White ink. 


There is nothing like a challenge, and Rikki finds using red just that – this being the reason she wanted to feature this paper and colour in this layout.

“… So to help lessen the big bold red background the key is to balance out with other red features –
eg the red baubles, the poinsettia and even the red lights in the photo.
Add in features like the greenery and the fun gingerbreads captures the fun of Christmas.”

Add a little Christmas Cheer and capture the fun of Christmas with one one of your favourite Christmas photographs.  
Join Rikki and see how you can easily recreate this layout for yourself.
