This is why pattern paper is my favorite product...

I love pattern paper! I can't get enough of it. I use it but I can also be a bit of a paper hoarder...saving that piece I love for just the perfect project. I know you all know what I mean. The Christmas Sleigh collection by GCD Studios is perfect for those fun bright Christmas pictures.



Last year we were in Disney near the holidays...it is a wonderful place all year round but especially gorgeous at Christmas time. Here is a layout I did showing off some of the Christmas sites.



This line made is so easy to do a layout without many embellishments. I simply made my own by cutting out these adorable trees from the Christmas Trees paper. I just added a pop dot for dimension. Then topped the trees off with a spot of Christmas Red Stickles. Done!



Buttons and trim and this layout has a great pop of color and dimension with out all the pricey embellishments. So next time you can't find the right embellishment in your stash...make your own with a piece of pattern paper!
