Fun with the holidays (layouts & mini album)

It's time for some more
holiday inspired designs.
Today's post features layouts & a mini-album!

LISA - "Holiday Love & Joy" layout
 I created this double page layout using the contents from the gorgeous Dec Club Q.  Each month I say it's my new fave only to be topped by the next month's kit.  My only additions were a few scraps from the 'Merry Go Round' paper line and some Petaloo flowers.  I love pages that allow for multiple photos :)  I feel like I get more bang for my buck, so to speak.
 love the journaling blocks
that were included :)

THERESA - Glittered Christmas Poinsettias
Hello Everyone and Merry Christmas! It’s Theresa and do I have a Fun Layout for you today! I just have to say I LOVE the way this turned out! It’s a pretty simple layout but I bet you can’t imagine where I got this GREAT Looking Glittered Flower paper from!!!??? You can’t guess, ....................................................................................................................................?????
Well I made it! Now I know you're asking, “But how, Theresa did you make this paper”!? Well for those of you that get the Club Q Kits you can probably figure it out! But for those of you who are sitting on the edge of your seat, you give up, well here it is, lol!
It is the negative, throw away paper from the flower cutouts!!!!!! Can you Believe it, LOL! I just hate to throw anything away and I almost did but as it was in my hand I thought what if I do my Packing Tape Technique on this? So I did! And it turned out Awesome! Don’t you think? You never would have known it was almost trash, lol!
Well the rest of the layout was fun also. I used the December Club Q kit papers Very Merry! I added some lace to the glitter paper border and inked everything with Amaretto QQ Powderpuff Chalk Ink . My photo mats are double mounted and also have some gold sheer ribbon added for some interest. I also added a blingy snowflake to the centers of the glitter flowers. And the crowning glory is the popped great Christmas Quote!
My extras were minimal; Cardstock: DCWV, Snowflake Punch & Glitter: Martha Stewart, Bling: Hobby Lobby, Ribbon and Lace is from my stash.

Lisa I love the blue, white and tan and those cute little flowers on the layout. I love multi
picture layouts.
Theresa love that you used the packing tape technique for the poinsettias. I have to try this.
Adora your winter blessing album is gorgeous. Love the blue and brown. Great idea for the flip pages to get more in the book. Love it!
