Christmas Tradition Scrapbook Page Challenge

With a 3 year old son, our family is starting quite a few new Christmas Traditions.  Some of them are passed down from my husband and I's childhood, and some we are just starting with our new family.  

The Moose Lodge Kids Holiday Party is a new tradition we started just last year.  The Moose Lodge is a place a few islands up from our island, that has a huge Holiday bash including, pizza, cookies, a wrapped gift, and of course.....Santa's lap.



For this layout, I cut out large chevrons from printed vellum and sewed them to my plain white background.  Then I just layered behind my photo with a doily, copy paper, and patterned paper.  Finally, I stuck some die cuts and journaling cards in between my layers, and finished of with wood veneer shapes.

This is the second challenge I've done with this blog.  It's a great place to go for inspiration and I'll definitely be following along from now on.  

Do you follow along with Scrapbook Challenge sites?  Which ones?

  3. Andrea, I love your layout! I am always "afraid of vellum" and have no idea how to use it! What a great idea and technique!! Thanks for sharing! Making wonderful memories and starting traditions with our loved ones is what life should be all about! Your family will cherish them always. Great way to document the start of one! Thanks for playing along over at the Challenge YOUrself Blog! <3

  4. Thank you Sherri! I used to be afraid of vellum too. Then I purchased a vellum pack by CosmoCricket and thought : "I have a bunch of vellum now, so I might as well use it". I really want to start using more of it. Maybe I'll start using it as a theme for my Holiday pages.
