Here’s my layout for our December Challenge:

Summer Christmas

In New Zealand, Christmas means summer. BBQ parties, going to the beach, and the best part is the abundance of fresh strawberries to eat. In this layout is my daughter and niece devouring fresh strawberries by the Christmas tree. They sure worked out an appetite after opening all the presents.

Canvas Corp Materials: Journal Lines on Ivory Paper, Candy Canes Paper, All Wrapped Up Reverse Paper, Jolly Christmas Sayings Paper, Farmhouse Christmas Tags on Ivory, Black E-Flute Paper, Mini White Paper Bag, Black Paper Bag, Red Burlap Sheet, Lime Green Burlap Flower, Mini Black ClothespinCanvas Corp Cling Stamp Set


Tattered Angels Materials: Corduroy Pure Mistable Paper, Glimmer Mists (Cross My Heart; Emerald Green, Pearl, It’s Black), Chalk Chalkboard Mist

The Journal Lines on Ivory Paper gives the background a fun twist to the page instead of having it plain white. It also makes for easy journaling on the page.  I then layered the Candy Canes Paper on top of the Journal Lines on Ivory Paper. The look of the white against the Ivory is amazing.


Canvas Corp’s paper bags are perfect for adding fun layers to your creations. Pair it with some E-Flute Paper which come in different colors and you’re good to go.


I’ve die cut the Tattered Angels Corduroy Mistable Paper in different sized circles. I then misted and splattered it with Tattered Angels’ Cross My Heart, Emerald Green, and Pearl Glimmer Mists. I have to say that the Cross My Heart Glimmer Mist is one of the most amazing red mist in the market.


How adorable is the fussy cut present from the All Wrapped Up Reverse Paper, which is sitting nicely amongst the cluster and goes with the jolly photo.  For more splash of color, I misted the same shades of Glimmer Mists to the background, and some splatters of the It’s Black Glimmer Mist for the final touch.


I had fun creating this layout and I hope you enjoyed it as much as I do.  Check out what the rest of the crew have come up here.

Thanks so much for popping in.  We can’t wait to see your beautiful Christmas entries.  You have until January 5 to link them up here.
