The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Happy Tuesday everyone! I wanted to show you a layout I did based on this week's sketch by Cindy Liebel on the Lily Bee blog. I just love the Christmas Cheer collection Lily Bee sent me to play with. It's soo pretty and the colors are bright & cheery.

Supplies: Lily Bee Christmas Cheer collection (Figgy Pudding 12 x 12 paper, 6x6 Tiny Tablet, index journaling cards, ABC Stickers, Mixed Stickers, Clear Stamps)

Creative How-to: Visit the Lily Bee blog to see the sketch and get details for playing along in the challenge. The first thing I did after choosing my photos was to pick the main papers I'd be using. These are my base, which is white, and the blue/white polka dot Figgy Pudding paper. I then measured and cut my squares and placed them on the white. I laid the blue paper over all of that and marked the two spots for the angle, leaving room to add the zig zag and scallop border. Once I cut and adhered it, I added the index journaling card at the top with a little layering, jute and banners.

Then, I embellished my squares with layers, stitching, doodling, index journaling cards sticking up and out, stickers and more... I also added a border at the bottom using the same colors and the Merry Christmas sentiment to tie everything together.
