Our (Christmas) Tree

One of my favorite types of patterned paper are those with tickets, tags, receipts, and other cut-out-able artifacts. I used several on a page about my Christmas tree. The journaling block, North Pole receipt, and Festival of Trees ticket, were all part of Echo Park's This & That Christmas collection. On top is a Santa image, punched from another of the collection's papers and adhered to a chipboard circle. Peeking out from these beneath these layers are two more of my favorite paper embellishments, a viewmaster reel and bingo card. I love those little random pieces. They add fun details without the bulk.

Here's my completed page with three little trees randomly cut from various patterned paper:


This year I thought I'd like to take a few pictures of my favorite ornaments. But gosh...where to start?!

That is a great layout and you got a wonderful picture of your tree. I love the way you did the layers.

I can never get a full view of mine as it goes in a funny corner where our dining room and living room are sort of divided by a pillar.
It makes it really awkward to step back and get a photo...
I think i figured it out for this year, I need to step out onto the porch and take the picture!!!

your tree looks so cool with those lights. I really love the trees you cut though. I know it's hard to get started taking photos of ornaments. I just do close ups of a few each year.

Love your layout. I took pictures of our ornaments last year and I have yet to do anything about them. I want to do a mini album on the ones that have some kind of significance (new baby, marriage, where we lived, were we visited...)
