The Wonder of Christmas!

  Wonder of Christmas Close Up

We are so excited about the upcoming holiday season. For the crafter, it has started! Today, we share amazing projects we've had waiting for us in the vault for another exciting Christmas season from G45 Ambassador Jane Tregenza and G45 DT alumni Denise Johnson.

Jane is a layout master. The fun and beauty of this layout is that it's an amazing layout of Charee's son Richard. Diane decorates her house so beautifully for the holidays every year and Richard was absolutely mezmorized by his Grammy's winter wonderland! We love this layout by G45 Ambassador Jane!

"Again Graphic 45 have designs a perfect Christmas collection for anyone to use. I love the traditional feel to this collection and the brighter colours make every paper just pop. I don’t celebrate Christmas quite like everyone else does. For my family it’s a time to get together and remember the true meaning of Christmas, without most of the trimmings that make everyone else’s Christmas’s so traditional.  So I don’t have the traditional family photos or photos of a Christmas tree to use on my layouts and projects. I always have to “borrow” someone else’s Christmas photos for my work. This is a very special Graphic 45 little gentleman  and I loved doing my layout for him.

I like working on a square within a square for my layouts. This restricts the area I have to work on. I don’t like adding too many embellishments to my work, as I love Graphic 45 papers so much, and I am happy to just have them. I also love fussy cutting, so this layout was the perfect excuse to get my scissors out and start cutting.  I have tried to create a wreath around my Father Christmas, using foam tape to build the ivy up. Some white snowflakes, just added the touch I needed.  

I matted the photo of the “little gentleman” and adhered it to my layout. I added some brads, photo corners, a ribbon bow and a title from Imaginarium Designs to finish the layout." ~Jane
