AND I got another holiday page done! lol! You know we buy alot of holiday papers, but we rarely scrap Christmas layouts. Its not like you don't have a huge pile of photos that need to be scrapped. Yes, some are not the most beautiful photos or best composition and lighting.... that's ok, scrap them! For CSI: Case file No. 10 the colors are just great for many of your outdoor photos, but its a great excuse to pull out holiday photos. For "evidence" I used metal (brads) and fabric for the leaves. If you want your fabric shapes to have some shape and not go flat, adhere the fabric to cardstock and then cut out the shape, it will give the fabric stability. I took one close up of the side so you can see the cardstock. For the "testimony" I was inspired by the word open and that's actually what made me think to do a holiday photo. Visit CSI HERE to see LOTS of layouts, I promise you will be inspired to play along!
For my layout I used a bunch of older Basic Grey papers, most are from the Wassail collection. I still just love that paper. For the flowers, I cut a circle pattern from patterned paper using scalloped scissors and then cut inward from the scallops. For an example of this type of flower, click here.
