Tracey Campbell's Mid December Reveal

Can you believe there are only 7 sleeps until Christmas? Keeping with this in mind I have dug out some Christmas photos and I have also scrapped a snow layout - just because I would love a white Christmas and know that won't happen here in the middle of our Summer....but I can dream.
Before I show you my Christmas layouts I wanted to send you all a handmade Christmas card, but I know that would have taken me all year to do so I have made one for you all to share.....

Merry Christmas

Wishing you all a very merry Christmas and a fantastic New Year.

How could I not scrap our first Christmas photo for 2013?? It is now a family tradition for Bronte and Paige to climb up on to Santa's knee, whisper in his ear and then smile a big cheesy smile for the camera.
My first time trying out the coloured chipboard from Memory Maze - love it! So easy to use and so fast. I simply decorated with some Kindy Glitz and  viola a beautiful tree.
 This coloured Christmas tree came pre etched so I added a blob of Kindy Glitz and whipped off the excess and the glitter stayed in the etching marks.
I wanted to add some bling to the chipboard title "Joy" so out came the clear rhinestones and I added them one a time until I had a "pimped" up joy.

Treasured Moments

Here is my "dreaming of a white Christmas" layout and as close as we will get to a white Christmas for some years to come - it is a layout of Bronte and Paige playing in the snow dome at Dream World Thailand.
A close up of the two different snow flakes I have used on the layout - the smaller one is embossed white and then hit with layer upon layer of white glitter and Dimensional Magic, then I used white brad to secure it to the page. The larger snow flake is pre etched with a fine dainty design which I really wanted to show so I used a thin layer of gesso over it and then attached some light blue rhinestones.
 For the title of the layout I have used a chipboard word title and in honour of snow I painted it white and let the fine detail of the font shine through. That is the quality of Memory Mazes designs, you really do not have to do much to them to make them the star of the show.

Santa Let Me Explain

A few photos of our first Christmas here in Darwin - that explains why the girls are in Nappies only and if you can look past the girls you will see that it is also still dark....the girls were super excited to see what Santa brought that they were up before the sun.

Once again I have used some of the coloured chipboard this time for the title "Santa Let Me Explain" if you are looking for a quick and simple way to make your titles, well then look no further. The coloured chipboard titles and shapes are it. Use them as they are or add a little bit of embellishment, you really can't go wrong.
I loved the Holly Boarder that I got this month, but I really wanted some individual holly decorations so I simply snipped them apart to use. Now I have a ton of them for the rest of my layouts and cards. I gave them some colour with a bit of water paint.
 Another chipboard word title used on this layout - really if you have not checked out all the titles in the store then you are simply missing out. So many to choose from and if you can not find the perfect one then ask Sally and I am sure she will be happy to design one for you. This one I gave an ombre effect to by simply painting on some Gelatos and watering down the Gelato for each word.
How cute is this Christmas Tree? Cut out and etched baubles on it with little candy canes and presents too = the perfect addition to any Christmas layout or card.
