Three Layouts
With a Touch of Christmas
By Di Garling

"Christmas Baby"
Hi friends, thanks for calling by. Today I have some Christmas layouts to share &
another new video. I hope you will take the time to watch it, & maybe even
subscribe to my you tube channel while you are there so you don't miss anything.

Naturally I have used some gorgeous 2Crafty chippies, starting off with one of their
new titles, "Christmas Baby". So appropriate don't you think?

2Crafty Products Used..
Frame - Yvettes
 "Christmas Baby" -  Title
 Festive Branch

All of the chippie pieces except the word, were simply heat embossed using
gold embossing powder as you would have seen in the video. Just so easy
yet so effective & it gives the layout a real richness.

I just love this new "Festive Branch".

The "Yvette's Frame" was just the perfect piece to frame my photo.

This new "Christmas Baby" title was firstly coated with gesso, followed by
a coat of  "Silks paint in the colour Carmen", then finished off with a wipe of
Viva Inka Gold Paste.

And lastly a few chippie stars for good measure.

"Christmas Cutie"

I adore this pic of my Grandaughter Mia in her Santa hat. 
I took this photo last Sunday & I had it scrapped on Monday!!!

2Crafty Products Used ..
Christmas Cuties - Title
 Christmas Decorative Ornament Borders
Stars - Multi Pack
2014's Pack
ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars Multi  Pack

 I cut the word cuties down & made it just cutie.
All the chippie pieces were firstly given a coat of gesso. Next up both the 
 title & the 2014 date were coloured up with Barn Door Distress Ink & when dry
 I added some Stickles for a sparkly finish. Shame the sparkle doesn't show up here.

This is the new "Christmas Ornament Decorative Border".
After firstly giving it a coat of gesso I  then coloured it using my Gelatos &
blended the colour with a little water & my finger. When dry I dabbed on
some pale pink Stickles which unfortunately doesn't show in the photos!!!

The 2014 date was treated the same as the title.

All the stars where finished exactly the same as the border.

"A Moment to Treasure"

This last layout I created for "The Scrapbook Store.
I love this photo that was  taken last year at my youngest sons wedding
of both my sons, hubby & myself & of course my beautiful daughter in law (the bride).

Leafy Shrub Set #2
A Moment to Treasure - Title

This beautiful chippie foliage is the  "Leafy Shrub Set #2"
which after coating with gesso was simply coloured with
Broken Glass Distress Ink & a little glitter added to glam it up.

The title, "A Moment to Treasure" was again coloured with Gelatos.
Gelatos work so well on chipboard.

Well I hoped you enjoyed my post today & if you would like to see more 
of my work I would love you to visit my blog sometime.
