And more Christmas... You'd think I'd be getting close to having all my Christmas photos done by now, wouldn't you?
Supplies: cardstock (Bazzill, We are Memory Keepers), patterned paper (Crate Paper), holly leaves and eyelets (Making Memories), jewels (Creative Imaginations), journaling card (Fancy Pants), letters (Making memories, Creative Imaginations, American Crafts, Crate Paper),  edge punch (Martha Stewart Crafts), ink (Ranger), ribbon (Offray), buttons and doilies (craft supply)


Again, this is based on a Midweek Mojo sketch for scrapbooksteals.com - Turquoise 6.  Kind of an icky photo, but I just couldn't seem to get my angle right... or my lighting.  And even though this photo doesn't do it justice, I love how this turned out!!  One of my favorite things to use on pages lately are those paper doilies.  I think they make great accents... are are really cheap!  They come in a bunch of different sizes and designs and you can even get them in different colors, or dye your own.  I usually ink some or all of mine, depending on the look I want.  I used antique linen distress ink on these to tone down the bright white.  You can get doilies in a bunch of different places, too.  I've seen them at the dollar store, discount retailers like Walmart and Target, the grocery store and online.  I usually get mine on Esty. (If you're interested in where exactly on Etsy I shop for mine, leave me a comment and I'll make a post with some shop addresses!)  So next time you need to add something to a layout, try a doily- super easy, super cheap and a great look!

Happy Scrapping!
