You're My Treasure Layout Berry71Bleu December Challenge

Happy 2015 everybody!!!  I hope everybody had a fabulous Holiday & an amazing start to 2015.  I know I started 2015 exactly how I wanted--relaxing in bed with my flannel PJ's & cuddling with two very handsome guys--my husband & my son!

Today I bring you my take on Berry71Bleu's December challenge.  The theme was 'Winter Chill'--to celebrate all the things that represent the wonderful Winter season--from fresh fallen snow to the beauty of icicles.  Whether you're a snow bunny who makes the best of the Winter chill or if you're the type that copes with Winter by snuggling next to a fire place with a hot cup of cocoa--we want to see your interpretation of a 'Winter Chill'.

My take was of my son--this photo was one of my faves taken for Christmas.  So I ended up doing a mix of a Winter/Christmas themed page.

With the Christmas rush I certainly didn't have time to come up with my own design--so once again I went to my fave source of creative sketches--Page Drafts, for inspiration.  You'll be seeing many more Page Drafts sketches in the near future.  Lately I just don't seem to have the time to come up with my own design--I'm a slow scrapper in general & when I do my own design then multiply my slowness by three times!  When I have the time to spare--this isn't a problem...but when I have to complete a project within a few hours--then Page Drafts is my solution!

I'm a very big fan of dimension & love them on my pages--so I always give my embellishments a lift by adhering them to my page with pop dots also referred to as foam dots.

All papers used are from Authentique's 'Cozy' collection.  This collection is composed of kraft & light blue colors with just a hint of red.  I accentuated the red a bit more by making the embellishments of my page mostly red.  These embellishments added a pop of color to the layout.

The Christmas themed images are actually digital images provided by one of Berry71Bleu's December sponsors, Gecko Galz.  I printed the images & fussy cut a few of them out--one of them being this very clever Santa Claus.

The silver flower is from my own stash--I have a few of these up for sale in my Etsy shop.

The adorable deer cut out was also a digital image by Gecko Galz.

  1. Love your layout Kay. Your son is such a handsome boy. Thanks so much for the fabulous tutorials. I found your previous blog when I was searching for a tutorial to share on my blog; which will be posted on Jan. 24th with the Criss Cross card I had already created. I needed a tutorial for my followers/readers. I also posted your tutorial on my blog page - Tutorials. I am now your newest follower. I would love to have you follow my blog too.
