I'm having fun scrapping with Christmas Memories from Fabscraps!  It's such a pretty paper collection with traditional colors of red and green. Love pairing it with gorgeous red roses!

For This Project You Will Need

FabScraps C79 Christmas Memories Collection:
·        001 Father Christmas
·        005 Christmas Kiss
·        006 Christmas Holly
·        008 Christmas Tags
·        MC79 001A Carder's Pack

·        Cream cardstock

·        Die-namites Holly Branch
·        Red Stickles

  1. Cut a 12" frame from 008 Christmas Tags 1" wide.  Ink and distress the edges if desired.
  2. Trim 001 Father Christmas to 11.5 x 11.5" and then cut a frame 1" wide and layer this frame over the frame from step 1.  Ink and distress the edges if desired.
  3. Trim a 12 x 12 cream cardstock to 11 x 11".   Ink and distress the edges if desired.
  4. Layer the cream cardstock over the two frames from steps 1 and 2.
  5. Cut a decorative mat about 11" x 11" from 006 Christmas Holly.  I've use a WRMK Lucky 8 Classic Wreath punch.  You could cut something similar with a Cricut or Cameo. Ink and distress the edges if desired.
  6.  Cut two doiles from 001 Father Christmas.  Adhere one in the lower left corner as shown and adhere the other in the upper right corner as shown in the photo.
  7. Cut a mat 4.25 x 6.5" from 005 Christmas Kiss.  Ink and distress the edges if desired.  Adhere about 1.5" from the right side and 1" from the top.
  8. Cut a smaller mat, 4 x 6" and border punch with Martha Stewart punch around the page punches.  Ink and distress the edges if desired.  Adhere over the mat from step 7.
  9. Die-cut a frame similar to what I've used.  Dabble embossing ink randomly on the frame and sprinkle with Stampendous shabby white embossing enamel, heat set.
  10. Glue the frame over your photo and use foam tape to pop up the photo and frame.  Adhere over the layers in step 8.
  11. Adhere the 2nd doily in the bottom left corner about 1" from the left side and 1.5" from the bottom.
  12. Fussy cut a tag from 008 Christmas Tags and layer over the doily at the bottom.
  13. Embellish with flowers, holly leaves, berries, etc.  Use red stickles to enhance the berries.
