Yes it may only be mid August but my favourite time of the year is only just around the corner! You guessed it! Christmas- and I am even more excited now that Heidi Swapp has a fun new holiday collection out called Winter Wonderland. It is full of traditional and not so traditional colours and designs. I couldn't wait to get some of last years photos scrapped!
I layered two of the fun bold patterns from the collection Merry Christmas and Tis the Season as my base for the layout. I then used one of Paige Evans cute reindeer cutfile as a starting point.
I grabbed the Ephemera pack and sticker sheet and created a fun banner between the antlers of the deer, holding it together with some mint embroidery thread from my stash. I then grabbed the Stamp and Die set and cut out that sweet little deer that I layered over one of the vellum ephemera pieces.
I love the texture that is created using the ephemera pieces as the banner. It adds texture without the bulk, one of my favourite techniques for memory keeping!
