I began working on this Christmas layout two weeks ago. After battling several viruses that are going around (everyone in the family has caught something different), I finally finished this layout. These photos came from my husband and I doing a quick "photo session" with our daughter. We were trying to get a great photo for our Christmas card and we ended up several .
I used the "lacy" tree from the Christmas cartridge. I unchecked the ratio button on my Gypsy and resized it to 6 by 11 1/2 inches. The title "Christmas" is also cut from the Christmas cartridge at 2 1/4 inches. For the rest of the title "Faith's First", I used Plantin SchoolBook and cut it out at 2 inches.
I double matted the photos with red and pink cardstock and distressed them with gold ink. The background paper is from DCWV Christmas stack.
All comments and any suggestions are welcome as I'm always trying to improve my paper-crafting techniques.
