Scrapbook Friday

It is Scrapbook Friday over at My Cricut Craft Room and we are making scrapbook pages. I signed up to do the sketch thinking there were two sketches each month, but there was only one this month. I have already posted one layout with this sketch. The great thing though is that this sketch is so versatile and easy to use that it was fun to make another page with this sketch. This is really a fun easy sketch to use. This layout literally took me ten minutes to make. This is also the 25th which mean......

I chose to make a quick easy Christmas page. Now I used this sketch at its most basic level. It was meant to be a simple page. Scrapbooks need balance. I have some pages that take hours to create and others that need to be finished in ten to fifteen minutes.Here is the sketch....
I pulled some old Christmas pictures since I am several years behind in my scrapbooking. My Nicky was just so cute in these pictures.
This is just a fun simple layout. You can tell we live in the south. Nick is wearing shorts and a t-shirt on Christmas morning. One of the things that made making this layout so easy was laying out the elements in Cricut Craft Room. If you have been afraid to use this, get over your fears and start playing. I just used a square in the free digital basic shapes in CCR. I made it large enough to be my big square. It already had the rounded corners. The rectangle mats are from Fabulous Finds. I just eyeballed it. I knew they needed to be about 4x6.
 The Christmas and the tree were pulled from Designers Calendar. Again, this was done in CCR, so I just sized it to what looked pleasing to the eye. The Christmas was cut out of kraft cardstock and covered with Holly Stickles which is a mix of red and green. The star is covered in Gold Stickles and the ornaments are Christmas Red Stickles .

All of the edges are inked with Jumbo Java Chalk Ink . It gives depth and definition to the edges. These inks are so smooth going on and they last an incredibly long time. The one I used on this layout is at least two years old.

I hope you enjoyed my fun layout. If you are in need of the materials used click the links and they will take you straight to Erica's store. Now head on over to My Cricut Craft Room and see what my design team sisters have created for you to see.
Happy Crafting!
