Baby's First Christmas Layout

The Princess' first Christmas. We had such a great time that year. Holidays are so much more fun when you have a little one in the house. Good memories.

For this layout I pulled out some hoarded vintage Daisy D's papers. Y'all know how much I covet those. I also used stamps, inks, and paint from Ann Butler Designs.I have been trying hard to make my layouts less "fluffy" - flat is my objective! I want to be able to put more layouts in an album.

I started by stamping all around the edge of my base cardstock. I used  the Snowflake Frenzy stamp and Sheer Pearl Iridescents. Apply a light coat of the iridescents to the stamp using a foam brush. I stamped around the entire edge of the cardstock - going about " in. I inked the edge of the cardstock using Evergreen Crafter's Ink from Colorbox.

I added a little bit of sparkle to the second layer of paper using Treasure Gold Paint by FolkArt. I used an old toothbrush to splatter the paint in several places.

More from my Daisy D's stash - this fun journal card is from forever ago. I still have a few left! I also used stickers from Bo Bunny and Doodlebug Design.

I always add a bit of faux stitching to my layouts. I love the texture it adds, without any added bulk.  My favorite pen for this is my Tombow Monotwin - it has two tips so I can vary the size of the "stitches" I am adding. And it lasts forever too! I used the same Evergreen ink on the edge of the second layer of paper too.
