Hi everyone!  Today I have a fun two-page layout to share with you that features some of my favorite holiday photos to take, the Christmas tree.  Every year I take a photo of our Christmas tree and the kids sitting in front of it. I love to see the progression of how much things have changed over the years.  I don’t usually make two-page layouts but this time I really wanted to add multiple photos and this is a great way to do that. 

Supplies Needed:

  • Pencil
  • Scissors or die cutting machine
  • Mini Glue Dots & other adhesives of choice
  • Twine

Papers Used:


Optional:

  • Ribbon
  • Trim
  • Alphas
  • Star punch

The first half of the layout features a large 3D tree.  I started by creating the tree by drawing a basic tree shape.  I used theBright Green cardstock because it was the perfect shade of green for what I was looking for.  When I was happy with the shape, I cut it out and traced it 5 more times. I folded the trees in half and assembled my tree.

To do this you glue one half of a tree to the next.  But you want the tree to lay flat so don’t glue that last 2 sides together unless you want a 3D tree to decorate with. I adhered the tree to the left side of my page and added a trunk from a scrap piece ofCherry Wood Veneer

I created my own decorations using scraps ofWild Cherry Pop-Tone,Gold Touch Sparkle, andGold Mirror Cardstock.  I connected each of the lights with some twine from my stash using aBlack MirriSparkle star and aMini Glue Dot.  I finished off the tree by adding aGold Touch Sparkle star to the top of the tree.

Next, I started on the right side of my two-page spread.  On this side, I wanted to have a stack of presents. Each present is cut out of different colors of cardstock (Anthracite,Gold,Jupiter,Green).  They are just basic squares and rectangles in various sizes.  I added “ribbons” to each present using a scrap ofSirio Ultra Black cardstock then topped each one with actual ribbon bows. To make the two pages more cohesive I created a string ofGreen Mirror lights.

To finish the layout I added my photos to the center of each page.  I lined them up so that I had space for my title. I continued the title on the other side of the page to bring everything together.

I felt that the white space at the top of the page was too big so I added a little trim above the photos. To finish everything off I added a bunch of stars that I punched out of theSparkle papers I had left.
