Keeping It Simple

Hi everyone! It's WOW Wednesday at Cat's Creations Blog. For this week I've managed to get some layouts done...of Christmas...last year! I've got to move faster. I kept these layouts pretty simple as I was just wanting to get them done and in the book so I could move on!

For this layout I printed the pictures 2x3 so I could get more on a page. This paper is Echo Park's Christmas collection from last year. I think it was called Holly Jolly but don't quote me. The journaling box is a Unity stamp and the Title (Welcome Christmas Into Your Heart) is a stamp from Stampin Up. I embossed with white powder on the red card stock.

These pics were taken at my brother's (Wayne) Christmas night last year. He lives in the country so I had a good view of the gorgeous sunset that night. We all posed for pictures for Mom. For this layout I used My Mind's Eye Christmas Collection from this year called Winter Wonderland. The red glitter letters and numbers are Thickers from American Crafts.
This paper is from that same line. These letters I had in my stash. Kennedy wanted me to wrap her up!

I also managed to make a card.
I used sketch #30 from Seems a Little Sketchy and will enter my card there.

My image is a digital from Mo Manning. I just love her images. I colored with my Copic Markers. I am also entering my card in Clear It Out Challenge. The Theme is Warm Fuzzies and to use textured items from our stash. Seeing the kitty on the dog made me think of "warm fuzzies". I made my sentiment using Just Write Alphabet Letters then punch out with a circle punch. I used a scalloped circle punch for the circle behind the sentiment, put it in an embossing folder for texture and inked the edges with Distress Ink Gathered Twigs. The brads I had in my stash.
