BEST GIFT – Scrapbook Layout

Hello friends! Jenni here today to share a scrapbook layout using this 6×6 stencil of various Christmas ornaments and several of the mediums from The Crafter’s Workshop.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.


I have been trying to choose photographs for our Christmas card and this was one of the ones I loved.  I thought it would be a shame not to document it and using this black & white print, some bright colored embellishments would be a perfect compliment.

I chose to use several different colored card stocks in shades of red, pink and 2 tones of turquoise.  Next, I used the Light & Fluffy Modeling Paste, the Shimmery Goodness, and for something different I used the Therm-O-Web Mixed Media Transfer Foil.

The Light & Fluffy Paste is my favorite medium…it is like the perfect whipped icing!

I lined up the different colored cardstocks and then stenciled the different mediums across every piece, including a piece of vellum.  The Shimmery Goodness medium on vellum was such a lovely texture!

Using the DecoFoil Transfer Gel, I stenciled the same ornaments onto the same cardstocks and vellum.

The Transfer Gel has to dry for an hour before foiling it.  I used the Antique Pearl metallic foil, which is a lovely balance between gold and silver.  After all the ornaments were stenciled or foiled, I trimmed them out.

The foil also looked great with the Shimmery Goodness paint.  I used scrap pieces of patterned paper left on my desk from other projects.  I didn’t even trim any of the pieces, just layering them under where I planned to adhere my photo.

Marking the places where I placed the trimmed stenciled ornaments, I added machine stitching, overlapping different types of stitches.

I rubbed a light circle of Gold Gesso to add a golden halo under the stenciled ornaments.

I also added some of the turquoise thread tied with gold thread under each ornament as a tie at the top.

To finish up the layout, I added the oversized date stamp, a title out of chipboard letters, and enamel dots on each ornament.

I hope this inspires you to document a special photo for the season or just to craft a story!  Thanks for stopping by the Blog today.  Have a great week!
