Happy Thursday everyone! We're back again today with some more Pocket Chick creations. This time it's all about Saint Nick!
Season's Greetings by Greta Hammond
Greta says, "The chipboard banners have been one of my favorites embellishments but I thought I would change things up on this layout and turn them sideways. I also mixed and matched the shapes, added some faux stitching as well as buttons. I thought it made a fun border!"
Here With You by Vicki Chrisman
Vicki says, "At first I thought it might be hard to get in the mood to do a Christmas layout in July ... but not with this great line! It's beautiful! I love polk-a-dots, and thought it would be fun to pick random dots on the tree and add Glossy Accents to them for a dimensional effect...
... I also added it to the swirls on the background paper. I loved adding dimension so much, I also cut the trees apart and added foam square to the largest tree to make it really stand off the page. What a great line to work with!"
Naughty or Nice? by Lisa Andrews
Lisa says, "I love the new filter embellishments with the printed designs. On this layout I used one of each of the designs when layering the photos and paper. They make a great impact without a lot of work."
December 25th by Guiseppa Gubler
Guiseppa explains, "I love this picture of my daughter Janica. Even though she is getting older ... she still loves to turn over that last star on the advent calender. The Design Embellishments in this collection were perfect for the title of this layout. Once, I started this project with these beautiful papers, everything just came together."
Naughty or Nice? by Suzanne Sergi
Suzanne says, "I fell in love with the vintage feel of the Saint Nick Collection. The papers, and embellishments are full of vintage treasures! Perfect for documenting your Christmas snapshots. The collection has an old fashioned feel, so I used a photo action to soften this photo of my children. This paper reminded me of a letter to Santa, and I love the traditional image of Santa. I added a bit of glitter to his beard, and on the fur of his suit. For added detail, I also added some underneath the image too. Christmas is a magical time, and I cannot wait for the season to arrive!"
Elf Is Back In Town by Trish Harwick
Trish shares, "When I saw the 'Naughty or Nice?' heading on the pattern paper included in the Saint Nick collection I knew I had found the perfect paper to document our yearly visits from 'Scout', the Elf on the Shelf. I love the yellow tones that are included in this collection; very different from some of the traditional Christmas collections, that along with the blue tones, makes this collection very versatile!"
Dear Santa Letter by Pamela Young
Pamela says, "I love how all the colors go together so well. My first thought was that there was some unexpected colors in this Christmas line and I wasn't quite sure about all of them going together. But after I started to play with it, I just LOVE all the colors together!!! I love how there is some purple in this collection. It makes for a fun, whimsical feel."
Christmas by Leah Farqharson
Leah says, "There's something about the mayhem of Christmas morning that's just so much fun! I try to enjoy every bit of it and let the little things go as a mom. So yes—the living room ends up looking like a disaster with toys, games and the occasional sweet treat thrown in for good measure. But thankfully everyone is blissfully happy. So, I'll take it. It was fun tilting the layout on an angle to kind of hint at all of that chaos! :)"
We hope you join us again on Monday when we get back to our weekly Fancy This post. Guiseppa Gubler will be sharing great project with you. See you then!
