25 Days of Christmas

My reveal at A Cherry On Top yesterday was for the Little Yellow Bicycle 25 Days of Christmas line. This was an elegant line filled with traditional christmas colors with a little gold and silver thrown in. There were swirls, reindeer, glitter and tons of fun embellishments! There are so many choices with this line- many double-sided papers that are glossy and gorgeous!

I was able to make this simple but beautiful layout with the glittered die-cut poinsettia sheet of cardstock. I just layered it on a matching cardstock background and with some gold letters and ribbon, it was complete.

I was also able to make a layout with a more fun feeling with this line. I cut some of the papers into strips (and used my new EK Success large scalloped punch- I am so in love with it!), used the fun chipboard button embellishments and some snowflakes for embellishments. One of the fabric tags is on there, too- one of my favorite parts of this line! I used their mini alphas for the title and sprayed a little Pearl Glimmer Mist on for good measure. :)

I also made this Christmas card with some of the papers and one of the fabric tags. It is a fun way to include a photo with your cards- I sewed 3 edges of the cards to make a pocket to slip the photo into, then used a circle punch to punch a half circle in the top for the photo to peek out of. When you mention sewing, it automatically sounds time consuming and maybe a little difficult. I promise it's not! If you just do them all at once, you can get them done quickly! And if you're not into sewing or don't have a sewing machine, just use adhesive to stick the sides together, and you'll get the same effect!

Don't forget (like you would anyway, right?!) about the crop at ACOT this week starting Friday at 3 and going until Sunday night. I have a fun fast scrap planned for Friday and a challenge on Saturday, so be sure to check them out. There will be lots of fun, games, classes and points handed out! See you there!
