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.

“XOXO” Layout Favourite Dt Projects
by Donna Espiritu
As I browse all the projects I created for Kaisercraft this term, this layout stands out the most to me. I love the colors, the layout design and most of all the photo of my daughter. I was able to capture both her innocence and personality in this particular photo, like “sugar and spice and everything nice” rolled into one.

Romantique Layout Favourite DT Projects

This layout would have to be one of my most favourite Layouts that I have made this year. It was made using the Romantique collection, which I adore. I enjoy creating layouts following this design. I also enjoy mixing Templates, fussy cutting, flowers, Wooden Flourishes and Decorative Dies to create a textured layout.

Fairy Garden Layout Favourite DT Projects
“Fairy garden” collection is my most favorite this year for its pastel colors and beautiful images.I made this shabby chic layout with the gorgeous die cut papers from the collection
I chose this project because of the photo. It is of my uncle and my cousin’s twin boys. I love the emotions that you can see here and how much ‘poppy’ adores his grandsons. This paper collection enabled me to capture this special memory.
