Scrapbooking Discussion

Two of the places we celebrate Christmas are my parents' and my grandparents' places. I chose to make a layout honoring the magnificent trees we have decorated and filled from the floor to the bottom of the tree with presents. I love Christmas and for me, one of the most important things to do is to put up the tree and decorate it with ornaments that have been made, bought and collected over the years.

Christmas tree scrapbooking layout

Scrapbook Supplies

• Green photo mounting paper
• 4 Christmas tree ball die cuts
• Double sided adhesive

Scrapbook Tools

• Personal Trimmer
• Ruler


Scrapbooking Notes:

I used green photo mounting paper as a background for the green trees, which provides a little contrast, as well as being a traditional holiday color. I continue using a traditional holiday green to write the words "O Christmas Tree" which is a play on the words of the song with the same name. I use the traditional holiday red for the journaling below the photos to indicate where the individual trees resided and once again adding contrast to the green of the trees and the photo mounting paper. The ornament shaped die cuts fill in space on the page above and below the photos as well as tying in with the Christmas tree theme. I also used the pieces punched out to create the designs of the die cuts ornaments to fill in the space between the photos as well as adding a unique design to a space that otherwise would have been empty. Leaving the space empty would have made the layout seem unbalanced whereas now it looks like red flows from the ornaments at the top all the way through to the ornaments at the bottom.
