Merry & Bright!

Merry & Bright!

Instead of stringing garland on a Christmas tree, why not switch things up a bit and create a garland from Christmas trees? Hello there! It's Jana Eubank. My page today features a banner of Christmas trees across the top that I fussy-cut from a page of the Merry and Bright 6x8 paper pad.

I arranged the trees in a slight curve and then used my sewing machine to stitch them together. 

After stitching them, I tucked thin foam squares behind each tree to lift them up a bit and then accented a few of them with phrase and flower stickers from the Merry and Bright Combo Sticker Sheet.

I used a journal block from the Merry and Bright SN@P! Cards to add the details about my photos. Cutting around the bracket shape of the journal block adds interest. I added some greenery and phrases from the Bits & Pieces and Combo Sticker Sheet as accents.

Another 3x4 Merry and Bright SN@P! Card makes a quick and easy title for this page, and the large fussy-cut Santa (Merry and Bright 6x8 Paper Pad) is so cute peeking out from behind the photos.

As you take down your holiday decorations this year, try looking at them with new eyes and see if there is an idea you can incorporate into your next scrapbook page. Creating a garland or banner on your layout is a great place to start!
