The Scrapbook Store - Lemoncraft Christmas Greetings Layout

Hi Everyone,

Today I am sharing my final layout for the month at The Scrapbook Store using the beautiful Lemoncraft Christmas Greetings Collection.

Most Wonderful Time of the Year Layout
For this layout I decided to mix a bit of lime green and pink hues with the traditional colour palette of this collection to give it a more youthful look to tie in with this cute photo of Luke and Brittany when they were much younger, capturing the excitement of opening their presents on Christmas day. 

Lemoncraft - Christmas Greetings Collection

 The background was created by cutting up various sized sections of the cover sheet from the Lemoncraft Basics Collection which has a pattern on the reverse side, and sanding the edges with Kaisercraft sanding block, leaving you with a lovely crisp white borders.  I then overlapped and adhered the pieces to create a base for my photo.  

The layers were masked with Faber Castell whipped spackle and Tim Holtz flourish stencil, then randomly stamped with a cute snowflake image.  I mixed various flowers, red glittered berries and diecut pine sprigs to frame my photo, then added some pretty lime green sequins for a bit of sparkle and finished off by using a brush to flick the background with lime Kaisermist.

Green Tara - Mini Blossoms Rose
To alter the Blue Fern Santa's Sleigh chipboard piece, I coated with Faber-Castell whipped spackle then used a palette knife to create peaks by laying flat on the whipped spackle and lifting up the knife.  Whilst the whipped spackle is still wet I sprinkled with Zing leaf green embossing powder and set with a heat gun.
