Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

Susie here today sharing a Christmas layout I created using two of the wonderful laser cut overlays available from Want2Scrap!

I absolutely love to decorate for Christmas and one of the first things that came out of the boxes this past year was our collection of nutcrackers! I realized I needed to scrapbook them and of course I found the perfect starting point with Want2Scrap overlays.  This is how the overlays looked when I started:

Let me tell you that the red paper is the same on each overlay although the photography makes them look like different colors.  Sorry about that!  :)  You can see that each of the overlays come with  a white paper background that provides a photo mat inside of each of the openings - such a nice detail!

Don't feel like you need to fill each opening with a picture - although I did do that for the photo on the right!  I use the openings to group pictures and related embellishments and I like to include a lot of pictures on my layouts! I used patterned paper to create a background for my mini collages in two of the openings.  I chose the Holiday Cheer Collection from Photo Play Paper because it had a nutcracker theme!

This overlay actually has a laser cut Santa's hat and sparkles which would make it perfect for "Visit with Santa" pictures.  My theme for this page was different so I created an embellishment cluster to cover up that area.

The built in laser cut title is my favorite part of any overlay because it just makes my life easier!  The paper pack I was working with had a color pallette that included both white and tan.  I chose one of the papers with a tan pattern and used it to back most of the title area. I left the area behind the word "Christmas" white so that it would really stand out and  I added a dimensional wooden exclamation point!

Next I used the "Christmas Tree Second Page" overlay. I want to point out that you can flip this page around and orient it any way you want to suit your pictures and embellishments.  I just love having options!

Here is a look at the finished page.  I love treating each opening like a mini scrapbook page!

So time to get out those Christmas pictures and get them into your scrapbook!  Be sure to check out the Want2Scrap Store for our full selection of 12x12 and 6x6 overlays!
