more christmas goodies

Directions for making this wreath out of recycled ribbon spools are up at Galblog. I had seen a few wreaths made with circles of patterned paper, and looking at the growing pile of spools I have accumulated, I realized they would be perfect for adding some dimension to the wreath. It was fun to make, because the spools are all different sizes and widths, I think it lends itself to these whimsical papers. Plus, I wanted to make something "winter" themed that could stay up past Christmas.
Next are a couple of pages I made for the December Scrapgal Newsletter:
I loved looking through old Christmas photos, it was fun reminiscing and then picking these two to make layouts for. I also LOVE this Basic Grey paper line, it's not a Christmas line, per-se, but I think the designs work really, really well for holiday-themed projects. I love the non-traditional colors for Christmas that are popping up everywhere, I gotta say straight red and green are not my favorite combination, but add a little light green and turquoise, and I'm all over that!

i love the layouts. i like the non-traditional colors for Christmas too. i usually don't scrap holidays, but it's tempting with all those pretty colors.

hope you're having a fantastic day.

I love your wreath! Look at you burnin' up the craftiness! I see your blog and it makes we want to glue things together then I go home and just stare at everything. I need a mojo boost.
