Santa | Inspiration

Hi there!

Laura here today sharing this holiday page with you all!


We have a family tradition of taking our pup to the local SPCA for pictures with Santa, it helps them raise a little money, and gives us a scrap-able memory ;)  This is last year's photo.  I was away, so my husband made sure he took our youngest and our pup.  Unfortunately our son was wearing bright yellow! For Christmas photos?  Obviously he is not the scrapper, lol!

Anyway, I scanned the photo into the computer and converted it to black and white, and it worked out perfectly for this page!

I kept all my colours really quiet so that the amazing Evalicious 'Oh What Fun' goodies really pop!  I created this half tree digital cut file with various sized circles just for this page, filling in some circles with water colour paints that accent the embellishments, other circles were filled in with embossed with cardstock.


I used a few of the snipsnip labels to add journalling to the upper corner of my page, sprinkling in wood veneer and badge buttons, as well.


I am in LOVE with these wood veneers!


And badge buttons, this is such a fun collection! My title was die cut in white, for a tone on tone look, but I doodled around it for a bit of pop.


Puffy stickers, page tabs and more wood veneers finish off the page!

Be Jolly | Inspiration



Hi, Rona here! Wow! How beautiful have those layouts been?! Stay tuned, because there’s more to come next week!

I’ve been busy this month getting ready for the holidays, but I just couldn’t wait to dig into my stash of Evalicious goodies! In fact, I took the opportunity to crack them open when I needed a tag for a hostess gift.

I had seen the Gold Puffy Stickers on the website, but when I saw them in a video blog, I was blown away. These babies are GORGEOUS in real life. I mean, look: 


They are one of those things that are almost too pretty to use! So, I dipped in to the package for a few striped stars to use on my tag (although I couldn’t bring myself to use them all yet!).


I wanted the tag to have motion to it, so after the basic bottle tag had been made, I strung up some of the wood veneers and puffy stickers, and had them dangling from the Christmas Tree badge button.

I made the Oh What Fun PuffySticker two-sided by putting two similarly sized stickers back to back, and then sewing through them. 




I added a little extra glimmer to the wood veneers so they’d really sparkle! The cut outs in them were ideal to allow them to hang from a thread.


With the exception of the gold puffies, all of the Evalicious goodies used were from the “Oh What Fun” line, which is perfect for Christmas and December layouts and daily projects, and of course, bottle tags.

Thanks for joining me today. Off to make some more tags!
