Lemoncraft - Christmas Pages with Non-TraditionalPaper

Start to the Christmas Season -  Day Two
Hello. I set out this season to create Christmas with some everyday collections to show how easy it is to turn something nontraditional into Christmas delight.  A little imagination and it's actually pretty easy since the focal point is usually imagery and not necessarily color choice. 

 This  layout uses the delicate and graceful Lemoncraft collection called 'Everyday Spring' along with a sheet from 'Neverending Summer'.    I showcased a Christmas layout recently using Lemoncraft's  gorgeous reprinted 'Heart Painted' collection.  You can see that piece on my blog here and you will find the original post on Lemoncraft's blog right here

This Christmas layout combines two collections -  the top layer that looks like wood is from 'Neverending Summer' and it goes so perfectly with the other papers from 'Everyday Spring' collection.   I kept the layout fun and cheery with layers embellished with chipboard pieces and paper punches.  
I have to give a giant shoutout to the embellishments I used becuase they perfoirmed the monumental task of creating the imagery to tramsport you to a snowy frosty Chrismtas morning.  

The first honor rollcall goes to the chipboard pieces from 2Crafty.  The circle page frame is : 2Crafty Chipboard - Whispy Christmas Page Frame 120080
and the darling holiday shapes are 

The holiday shapes were painted with acrylic paints and then gussied up with wires, crystal gems  and the tree has some Stickles glitter glue for extra shimmer.  The gingerbread cookie has gems for buttons and eyes.   The candycane has some striped bakers twine wrapped around it.  

The next important roll call goes to the Petaloo flowers I selected.  While very simple, they really make a giant soft statement.   These are Petaloo's - Mulberry - New Camelia In the Pink. I stuck in some white generic floral berries and twig pine punches to fill out the cluster.  

This is available in my ETSY shop while it lasts.  I can customize and add your photo to this if you prefer.  Click here to see it.  

Keep watching for the newest release to be available soon.  You will need to add it to your Christmas wish list along with Lemoncraft's other gorgeous collections.  

I hope you are also having fun with all the beautiful LemonCraft collections.  
Thank you for stopping by!
