Deck the Halls – 12×12 2-Page Layout

A Muse Studio Scrapbook Pages
I am having fun learning to scrapbook again! A Muse Studio products are great for scrapbook pages as well as cards. I found these pictures from my first Christmas as Mrs. Alvarez. These pictures are from 2003.  The colors in the photos worked so well with the papers, I had to get these memories preserved!

Here is the left side close up.  Pictured left to right, Max Alvarez, our daughter Desi. The stamp sentiment, from A Muse Studio’s Deck the Halls, inside the wreath says “At Christmas, all roads lead home” I thought that was the perfect sentiment for Max and my first Christmas as husband and wife. Those of you who know us, know that we have been a couple since 1995. We took the longer, more difficult road getting to wedded bliss. My journaling was done with a old school DYMO label maker. There is a little glare of the plastic, in case you can’t make it out, it reads; ‘My first Christmas as Mrs. Alvarez. I’ve found my heart’s home.’

Here is the right side close up.  Pictured left to right, Ruth Alvarez, Joe Alvarez, and our nice Tati. I cut my title out of A Muse Studio Vanilla cardstock using my Base Camp Cricut cartridge and added the year with my handy dandy DYMO. Notice how the brown mat is cut like a window sill or fireplace mantle? The holly garland is cut from A Muse Studio Sage and Cherry felts using our brand new Spellbinders Exclusive Holly Die Set. The stockings, from A Muse Studio’s new Deck the Halls stamp set, are paper pieced in various colors and patterns and the tacked on the mantle with silver mini brads. Spoiler alert: If you like the stockings and holly – you will love the Kitchen Table Stamp Stamp of the Month kit for November! This layout was actually FUN to make. I feel like I am getting the groove back! Think the scrapbookers at the CKC show in Rosemont are going to like my layouts? Let me know what you think. Leave a comment!

Left Side Close Up: I love how making perfectly customized accents is so easy with stamps!  I made my little cupcakes to mirror the rich dark chocolate cupcakes in my photos.  I used A Muse Studio French Roast cardstock for the cake, French Roast Petite Polka Dot for the wrapper and Sugar cardstock for the frosting.  I paper pieced the elements and used 3D foam adhesive to pop the frosting tops.  Cute huh?

Right Side Close Up: Stamps are the perfect way to add depth and texture! The pictures on my page were taken at my nephews 3rd birthday party. I stamped the Sky cardstock panels with with Bermuda Ink and made my own ‘3’ pattern paper! It’s a subtle detail that I just love! It’s hard to see in the photos, but I also stamped the Mesh Background with Pumpkin Ink on Pumpkin cardstock Cricut’d letters to give them some texture. It’s AWESOME, come see it in person at the CKC Show in Rosemont!
