Tuesday With The Team: Kim Gowdy

Hello, Kim here! While we are still riding the wave of Christmas joy, I thought I’d share a layout I have been working on to showcase a Christmas memory from this year!

SIZZIX dies / Bo Bunny patterned papers / Bazzill cardstock / DCWV burlap / May Arts Ribbon / Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L / Viva Decor's Inka Gold /Robin's Nest Dew Drops

I used these gorgeous papers from Bo Bunny, I LOVE the vintage feel and they layered so well. The papers are from the Christmas Collage line as well as the Double Dots line. From the papers I fussy cut the tags and reindeer and used some fun SIZZIX dies to cut the tree and holiday greens. I have really come to love DCWV burlap, it add nice texture to everything! I love using it as a photo mat.

I had so much fun layers these bits and pieces cut from the Bo Bunny paper and distressed with Clearsnap Chalk Ink! The reindeer was fussy cut and painted with Inka Gold metallic paints. I LOVE these paints and their ease of use, I find I usually just apply with my finger and buff with a cloth once dry. This was an easy page to put together, but one that makes me smile. I love the texture of all the parts and pieces!

Lots of layers and Inka Gold paint on the reindeer.

Oh! Guess what! While I had all this yummy paper out…I made three quick Christmas cards, simply layered with paper remnants. I will tuck them away for next year and feel good that I have a few on hand ready to go!

Hope you find some time to use your Christmas stash while the memories and mood are fresh!
