I’m finally back with  a new post featuring a great Christmas layout made by Design Team member Ruth Moody using Making Memories “Believe” designer papers.

Here’s your supply list:

2 12×12 Poinsettia

2 12×12 Green Dot

1 12×12 Chevron

3 12×12 Musical Dot

1 12×12 Little Yellow Bicycle Decorative Edge

1 8.5×11 text weight pearlescent gold

1 12×12 Best Creation Glitter Gold

1 Elizabeth Craft Ornament 2 die

1 pkg Kaiser Craft yellow rhinestones

And here is how she made this layout:

1) Build pages on the Poinsettia paper

2) Cut 2 3.5×12 strips from Green Dot. Adhere to bottom of page

3)  Cur 2 3×12 from Chevron. Follow the pattern to get the points. On one side you will have to cut it to the center of the last point and match up the pattern and piece the one inch (this was the hardest part of the layout). Adhere to Green Dot strips.

4) Cut 10 circles from musical dot leaving the black trim. Adhere to Chevron as shown.

5) Cut 4 4.5×6.5 rectangles from the solid red (back side of the Musical Dot).

6) Cut 4 4×6 rectangles from the Green Dot. Adhere to red and then to layout as shown.

7) Now to add some bling: uses rhinestones to “hang” your Musical Circles.

8) Use your die cut machines to cut 2 top layers of the Poinsettia ornament from the gold text weight paper. On 1 of the flowers DO NOT push the flower out, only the pieces around it. Put a small piece of Scotch tape behind it. I used my glue pen to glue it in place. Don’t forget the bling in the center and at the top.

9) For the second ornament, use the Little Yellow Bicycle Decorative Edge paper. Cut 2. Save the gorgeous circle for another layout. Using popup glue dots, put the 2 together. Top with gold poinsettia (that you popped all the pieces out of) with a glue stick. Pull a 5″ piece of metallic thread or small string through opening. Tie it off and adhere ornament to page.

10) Gently straighten the string and attach with a glue dot, then place rhinestone on top.

11) For the letters spelling out Christmas I used my Cricut and Printing 101 at 1 1/2″. For the year I used Alphalicious.

I hope you enjoy making this layout and that you had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
