Christmas Tree Scrap Page

Published by at 2 00 pm under Scrapbook Pages

This is an 8 x 8 scrapbook page I did for Christmas. Just love that little tree — it looks just like the trees growing in the fields around here and it reminds me of many a tree we’ve had! I chose that piece of DP because for some reason, and probably no one will see this but me, but when I put it up against the red framed tree, it just reminded me of a snowstorm on a dark evening, when everyone is all snuggled inside by the tree!!! Yes, everyone tells me I have a vivid imagination — LOL — but can’t you just feel the cold and see the storm???

All stamps used on this page are from a set by Flourishescalled O Christmas Tree. I love the versatility you can achieve by stamping on a scrapbook page. This cute little page, all ribboned up just like a Christmas present, will hold several photos and a little journaling as well! I see the photos matted with the Real Red and the journaling done on a tag made out of the Marigold Morning! Gee, I wish I had some Christmas photos of little children handy so I could finish the page — I can just see it in my mind!


The tree is stamped in Always Articholeand accented with a Chocolate Chip marker,the balls are stamped in black and colored with a marker, then highlighted with a Signo White Gel Pen. The skirt is paper pieced and the star is punched, then covered with Dazzling Diamonds. The Photo Corner is also punched and attached with brads. The lovely “Christmas” in the lower left corner is also included in the O Christmas Tree set. It’s such a fun set for Christmas with this fun tree and all of its ornaments and several sentiments. It can be seen at Flourishes, and the last time I looked it was on special, when purchased as a kit with some paper and ribbons!!!!

The main image is cut and embossed with a Nestabilities Rectangle Die and the scalloped frame was made with their Rectangle Scallop Die, both being run through the Cuttlebug. The Nestability Dies are available as well at Flourishes.

    Making so many cards the last three months has gotten me sooooo behind on my scrap book pages. Thank you for more ideas to use on my Christmas pages this year. The tree looks the perfect size and love the red balls.
