Hello Everyone,

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  We had a weekend of swimming lessons, pumpkin shopping, library visit, and celebrating a friend & team members new baby.  It was a great weekend, and as an added bonus, the sun was shining!

This week, I am going to be sharing projects using the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper.  I love this patterned paper--it's just perfect for all your Christmas projects!

Beautiful isn't it?  The copper foil running through it is so tough to catch in a photo though!  Today for Make it Monday I have a scrapbook layout I did for the September Scrapbook Class to share.  I am so incredibly happy with how this one turned out!

Unfortunately, this photo doesn't do this layout justice.  It is so shimmery in real life!  But I kept catching shadows and reflections in my photo.  But the really good news - this layout is incredibly easy to make!

To Make This Layout:

1.  Cut a piece of 12x12 Whisper White cardstock to 10" x 10", and adhere to the full 12x12 sheet of cardstock with the branches and copper berries from the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper with Tear Tape.

2.  Cut a piece of the 8 1/2 x 11 Soft Suede cardstock to 8 1/2 x 8 1/2".  Cut a variety of pieces of Designer Series Paper and copper foil to various widths (ranging from 1/2" to 1 1/2") and various lengths (2"-3").  Scraps work very well for this if you have any!  Notch one end of each strip to either create a "slant" end or a "banner" or "v" end.  Adhere in a line starting approx. 3" from the bottom of the soft suede square.  Adhere a strip of the ribbon above the cut banners to hide the tops.

3.  Cut 3 pieces of the Gray Granite cardstock to 3 1/2 x 4 1/2".  Cut 3 pieces of the Whisper White cardstock to 3 1/4 x 4 1/4" and adhere to the Gray Granite mats.  Adhere to the layout (the two sides I adhered with tear tape, the centre I adhered with dimensionals).

4.  Cut a 2" x 4 3/4" strip of the Copper Foil Paper.  Punch the top with the tag topper punch.  Tie a bow and adhere to the whole (my trick for getting it perfect!) or tie the bow through the hole.  Adhere the tag using dimensionals, overlapping the ribbon strip and the photos slightly (if you are like me and complete layouts without photos, keep the dimensionals back off the edge where you are overlapping so that you can slide your photos in).
