Hello and Happy Hump Day! 

Today the Paper Issues DT are on the blog sharing Christmas & Holiday inspiration.

I decided to use Crate Paper's newest collection called "Fa La La".  This line is so pretty and fun.  There's plenty of patterns and colors to play with.  My favorite are the gold glitter pieces and chipboard stickers.  There's even fun shaped ephemera and cardstock stickers.  I had fun with this page.  Creating faux trees by cutting pattern paper into triangles and placing them in different heights at the bottom of the page.  I also did faux stitching to separate the backgroung from the trees, using a Uniball white gel pen.  The photo is from Christmas 2014.  Giovanni helping my parents decorate the tree.  And I did a ton of fussy cutting for this.  I even added a white snow mount/drift at the bottom of the treescape, but I covered that up with the photo and fussy cut elements.  Either way, the page is very lively with all the pieces and I absolutely love how busy it is, without really clashing.
