I know I haven’t been around much this week, but if you saw my status on Facebook a few days ago, you’ll know that I’ve just finally been enjoying the holidays for a change and the fact that I’m not bombarded with work. It’s been years since that’s happened and it’s feeling rather nice. :)
But you just know I have to share a page to get you all into the Christmas spirit. Check out this visual delight from that darling Miss Nichol!!
Pure Christmas eye candy, that’s what it is!
I just love how she used so many shapes from various kits–some Christmas, some not–to make this magical page! All those little details she adds. Wow. Love the stamped sentiment on the tag from the Holly Jolly kit! Don’t know why that particular one tickles my fancy, but it does.
Here’s what Nichol has to say:
I cut many of the pieces for the decorative border from glitter and flocked specialty papers using the Silhouette Cameo. I had tried cutting these specialty papers on the SD and was never successful but the Cameo seems to be able to handle certain manufacturer’s specialty paper designs. I used glitter and flocked papers from Doodlebug and glitter paper from Making Memories. I did try a glitter paper from Creative Cafe and it was just way too thick so I think it depends of the manufacturer.
I’d like to leave that little twinkly gem of a Christmas page with you and hopefully it will make you have sugar plums dance in your head over this holiday weekend.
And with this holiday just being around the corner, I can’t help but think I have been so blessed with all my amazing friends (and family :) ) out there in this world. I count myself lucky to have you in my life and to be a part of what I do. Those of you that have followed me for a while know I like to express randomly what ‘makes me happy’–big or small. Well, you are of those things that really ‘make me happy.’ :)
Have a Merry Christmas! I hope Santa is good to you and your family!
