I am getting there! I definitely like this layout better than the one that I posted previously. By doing these layouts as I learn, it is also forcing me to catch up on my scrapbooking. This layout is for Jared's first Christmas and he is entering Kindergarten in less than two weeks so that tells you how far behind I am. When he was born, I gave up my scrap room for the nursery so every time I thought about working on my scrapbook, I would have to drag everything out to the kitchen table. Just thinking about that makes me tired! So needless to say, I did not do a lot of scrapbooking, I would do more cards. I now use a room that was once a home office. Since we got laptops, we decided that we really didn't need a dedicated home office so now it is my scrap room. Enough rambling, back to the layout!
With this layout, I was working on getting more familiar with layers and also with shadows. This is getting some more definition in the layout that was lacking in my last attempt. I am definitely making headway. I will be working on putting some video tutorials on how to use layers and shadows as well as several other things that I am getting the hang of. On this layout I used digital papers from Lettering Delights from the Elf Dance and Reindeer Dance paper packs. The font for the title is also from Lettering Delights and is called Kris Kringle. The Santa Claus image is a digital stamp from Doodle Dragon Studios (aka Dustin Pike). I love his work! The ribbon was from Michael's and the button is Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy buttons.
