Yesterday I shared a great layout idea by Kim Schofield to help document your 2011 Christmas holiday. I think it's important to try and get your holiday scrapbooking pages done right after the season. If you wait too long, they get too far down on your to-do list and the memories aren't as fresh in your mind as they were months ago. Plus, it's a great time to find holiday crafting stickers, paper and other products on sale right now! If you can find the time this January, get inspired with this other great idea by Kim.
For this whimsical layout, Kim did a lot of stamping. She's stamped using PSA Fancy Flakes Peel & Stick stamps in the background on the white in blue ink, and on the red in darker red ink. She also stamped the "happy holidays" letter, the star and the Christmas trees from PSA Tree-O Peel & Stick stamps. She's also stamped the date – "25" for December 25th using PSA Archive Peel & Stick stamps. Way to use three different stamp sets in a project, Kim!
Here's a close up of the stamps:
I love her use of patterned paper – the stockings stuffed with teddy bears are a perfect pair to the young boys in the picture. The scalloped stripped paper adds visual interest, and the white ribbon adds texture. She's layered it on here and done a great job. Here's a list of the supplies, in case you'd like to replicate:
