Grandma's Christmas Decorations

This page is for the second challenge over at MDS MONDAY.
I love sketch challenges, they help kick start a project.  The papers and elements for this page are from the Jingle and Joy kit.  The page is also inspired by Heather Summers, who used this kit in class a few weeks ago, her class always gives great ideas, like the digital tape behind the Hello Christmas so that it stands out and so that the dotted paper doesn't distract the title.   I did the same thing with the snowflakes on the ribbon.  The snowflakes were really cute, and I wanted to add them as a border, but against the patterned paper they just didn't look good, so I added a Very Vanilla ribbon behind them and they work great. 

Here is the sketch from the challenge.  Why not give it a try?

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love the kit you used! It is fresh, clean, and Christmas-y! Thanks for joining MDS Monday this week.

  2. Great Christmas page, Beth. I use the scalloped square a lot when I'm punching paper, but I never remember to use it digitally. Thanks for the inspirational reminder! I also like your little tabs on the pictures and your use of the ribbon and tape. Thanks so much for joining us at MDS Monday - hope you play along with us again.

  3. I really like the grey mats - they really make the photos pop!

  4. What a wonderfully festive page! It's so right and cheerful. Great tip on the tape behind the sentiment... I will have to remember that one :) The mats on the bigger pictures are really sharp! Thanks for joining us MDS Monday!
