Simple Stories Cozy Christmas is collection of double sided papers, glazed brads, cardstock bits and pieces of ephemera, enamel dots, 12x12 sticker sheet plus a TON of Holiday inspiration.
I also wanted to share some layouts I recently created using photos my brother-in-law took when he was in high school back in the mid-70's. He was into photography and he tried a lot of effects with special camera lenses as you can see in the photo of the Maxwell family Christmas tree. I love the yellow hue the photo has.
Graphic 45 Book Box with 3 Kraft Cards and a Binder Ring were my inspiration for this box of holiday tags:
Forever Red Perfect Pearls mist and then dried it, next I fussy cut the tree, and adhered it and several die cut pieces to the front, spine and inside of the box. Finally, I applied four layers of Claudine Hellmuth Studio Multi Medium finish to seal and protect the outside of the box. I alternated brush stroke directions between horizontal and vertical with each coat to create a bit of texture with the medium. I kept the exterior fairly flat with little to now embellishments for easier storage.
Washi tape was a fun addition to several of the tags. I decorated both sides of the tags (there were tons of embellishments to go around)and twine or ribbon was added to the top of each tag. Storage is convenient when the tags are all placed on the Binder Ring included with the box. It keeps them handy and tidy.
