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.

“The Mountain Air collection bought all the memories of living in Colorado and my husband fishing in the rivers throughout the mountains right back, so I had to dig out an old photo of him in his favourite fishing spot.
A absolutely perfect collection for that part of our life” Kasia Leach – Design Team

In this month’s Mountain Air collection we have released a printed piece of acetate – PS536 OUTDOORS that you will soon see is very versatile.
Why use printed acetate in your scrapbooking?
The printed acetate gives you the ability to layer images over other images but still be able to see through to the pattern on the background. Another element – another dimension
PS536 Outdoors – Acetate Specialty
So whether you are going fishing or camping you can see how the main images of the wood stump or compass could be used as a feature on your layout and use the arrows and tyre treads, cut into strips for added interest.
