I love making Christmas scrapbook layouts because they are always bright, fun and bring back lots of wonderful memories.
Another good thing is you will never be lost for photographs for your Christmas scrapbook pages. In fact you will most likely be faced with the difficult decision of which ones to use.
The backing paper for this scrapbooking page layout is a sheet of red 12”x12” scrapbook paper.
You will also need to select four sheets of Christmas themed paper.
These sheets can be taken from a 6”x6” scrapbook paper pad and cut down slightly to fit on the 12”x12” backing paper.
As you can see here, when the four sheets are placed on the front of the 12”x12” backing paper there is a slight red border around each one.
Select a few of your favourite Christmas photos that will be used on each of the squares.
Cut one of the pictures into a circle. I used a Fiskars cutter to do this, however if you do not have one of these in your card making supplies you can always draw around something circular and cut it out manually with a sharp scalpel.
Cut out two slightly bigger circles in red and green card.
Place the three circles on one of the squares of scrapbook paper. If the paper has a pattern cut away some of the patter so that it overlaps the circles giving it the illusion of holding the photo in place.
Use decorative scissors or a Fiskars cutter to cut out the second photograph.
Mount the photograph onto green card and place on the second square of your Christmas scrapbook paper.
Use a scalpel to make small slits in the paper all the way down the right hand side.
Pass a piece of red organza ribbon through the slits securing it in place at the back of the paper.
You can then add any additional embellishments if you wish.
Next, cut a large square out of the centre of the third piece of scrapbook paper.
Place your photo behind the square securing it at the back of the paper.
Print some journaling onto a sheet of white paper. Use different fonts and colours to make your journaling or scrapbook quotes really stand out.
Use a Fiskars cutter to cut out your scrapbook wording so it has a fancy edge around it.
Place the wording on the fourth sheet of scrapbook paper using double sided tape to hold it in place.
Finally position your squares over the red scrapbook paper and secure them in place using double sided tape. Before sticking each square down, make sure you are happy you have your scrapbook page layout exactly how you want it.
I think this scrapbook page layout captures the fun and theme of Christmas beautifully.
