Merry Christmas – Michelle Van Oudtshoorn


A very happy new year to you! Here’s hoping that 2022 will be a safer, healthier and happier year for us all. 

I have decided to do a Christmas layout, as inspiration for all those photos that were taken over Christmas.

 Dusty Attic have some great Christmas chippies, so I thought creating a Christmas layout would be a good way to show you these amazing chipboard pieces. 

I have used a mix of Mintay papers and Ciao Bella papers to create my layout. The Christmas Postmarks (DA3149) and the Reindeer (DA3154) have been coloured using a metallique champagne coloured stamp pad. The Merry Christmas (DA3206) and the Christmas Berries (DA3143) have been coloured using a burgundy coloured stamp and then I have used Platinum Stickles to add glitter to the these.

The photo was matted first and added to the page with the leftover chipboard of the Merry Christmas title (leftover chipboard is great for adding dimension – I cut mine up and keep this in a bag). I layered the flowers and the added the berries.

I then added the postmarks and the this cutest reindeer. I used watered down ink from a stamp to colour in the eyes, the antlers, the scarf and the spots on the reindeer. 

The Merry Christmas title was added last. I added a little less stickles to the title.

Thank you for visiting the blog today. Happy scrapping your Christmas photos! Check out the Dusty Attic website to see their latest Christmas range.
