Today let's see what Izzy has in store for us!
Hello, everyone! It’s Izzy on the blog today. I’m delighted to be here as part of TOMBOW week. Tombow was the first adhesive I ever used in paper crafting and I have a soft spot for it – for good reason. It’s so reliable.
For my project, I made a Christmas layout using primarily Timber Grove. This is a great winter line and it works perfectly for holiday photos too. I pulled in a lot of red and aqua, one of my favorite color combinations. I used the Tombow Stamp Runner to adhere the papers together. The runner glides on smoothly. The adhesive is repositionable when first applied then sets to a permanent bond. Perfect!
Timber Grove Crystals / Timber Grove Frolic / Timber Grove Brag Pad / Timber Grove Tape Stickers / Timber Grove Patterned Envelopes / Timber Grove Small Decorative Tags / Timber Grove Ticket Roll / Timber Grove Label Stickers / Timber Grove Mint Alphas / Merry Little Christmas Strips / Merry Little Christmas Ephemera Pack / Merry Little Christmas Ticket Roll
The photos are of my son, age 3, who was shy about visiting Santa. At first my son would agree only to whisper his wish list to Santa. Finally, he got on Santa’s lap.
I placed the photos on the top left of the layout, then created a little scene at the bottom with tags, stickers and die cuts. The title anchors the page. I used chalk ink on both the red and aqua letters to give them a little more depth. I love how easily the Fancy Pants alphas take ink.
The die cuts from the ephemera pack are some of my favorite embellishments. I pulled a few from the Merry Little Christmas collection to go with the theme of the page. I used Towbow foam tabs to give the die cuts some height. The tabs were super easy to apply and gave the page just the right dimension.
At the top of the page, I used a cute patterned envelope for both function and design. I love the fun pop of color and the envelope provided the perfect place to tuck in my son’s Christmas wish list.
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today!
