Christmas Morning

What could be more exciting than Christmas morning?  The anticipation to see what goodies Santa has left, the joy of unwrapping all those colorful gifts under the tree!

We have a Christmas Morning tradition in my house (started when I was a little girl), the kids must all wait at the top of the stairs while I sneak down and check to make sure Santa came during the night.  Last year I snapped a photo of my kids waiting all sleepy eyed but still full of excitement!

What are your Christmas or holiday traditions?  Are they ones that you carried on from when you were a child?  What ever your traditions are I hope you've made sure they are present in your scrapbooks.

'Tis The Season

My favorite time of year is coming....Christmas!  I love all the twinkling lights, decorations, food and of course spending time with family & friends!

To help start getting in the spirit I have a Christmas layout to share today.

For me Christmas is all about the color red, so I automatically reached for the red & white polka dot Fabric Sheet.  I added bits of Lace Tape throughout the layout for a little extra texture.

I hope this layout gets you in the mood of the season!!

Merry Christmas

Hello my friends!! Giovana here with a Clean and Simple yet elegant Christmas Card!  I made several of these cards using Ivory and White Lace Ribbon Tape. Just the perfect accent to make my card beautiful and elegant.

  • Make card base from Ivory/White CS. A2 size.
  • Score the front of your card at 1/4" each side and 1/2" bottom side. Score also on top and bottom part where you are going to add the tape ribbon.
  • Stamp sentiment and image in Versamark Ink and add Gold Embossing powder. Heat it up.
  • Add Ivory/White Lace Tape Ribbon (to match your card base)
  • Voila!! You are done!! 
Hope you like it!!
Have a great day!!

Lace tapes

Don't you just love lace tape?!
I am totally addicted! I think I cold add it pretty much anywhere!
Here are some close ups!
Attaching the banner and on the bottom is the lace tape from Love My Tapes.
Just like frosting I had to go back and add color(or sprinkles)
Here I used it to frame my journaling!
