Rose Blossom Blog Hop - Happy, Happy Christmas Non-Christmas Layout


Welcome to the Rose Blossom Blog Hop! Come follow Close To My Heart consultants from the Rose Blossom team as we share our creations made using the Happy, Happy Christmas special!


If you came here from Kim's incredible blog, you are on the right path. If you get lost along the way, come back here and go to the bottom of the page for the blog hop list.


Inspiration: Jen Schow's 6 x 6 Paper Pad Love video series.  This is perfect for the My Crush pages because they're just over 8" x 6", so you have plenty to work with!

Technique: Ink smooshing - I added a few drops of Canary re-inker on a plastic bag, spritzed some water on top, and then smooshed it onto my page. Easy and cool. :) 

Happy, Happy Non-Christmas: My first thought whenever I look through a new themed paper pack is - "how many of these pages can be used for other things?" The answer for Happy, Happy Christmas is - a lot! 

The strips of paper are from the My Crush Happy, Happy Christmas pages and the Oh Deer! paper pack. All the words (and that adorable brownstone) are cut out from the Picture My Life cards. I was even able to use some of the City Sidewalk Complements - I just covered parts of the stickers that didn't go with the theme and went with the all-purpose star die-cuts. 

You can get the Happy, Happy Christmas bundle on my website

Now it's time for you to keep moving on the hop!  Head on over to Brenda's gorgeous blog and see her beautiful artwork!

Oh how clever you are! These colors go perfectly with your photo and the smooshing technique gives your layout a really up to date look even though the photo is a blast from the past. I just love it.
