Christmas Costumes

Hello all, Erin joining you today! Last December, right before Christmas, my family attended the wedding of a former student and family member. At the wedding, they had a cute little photo booth set up with props to wear, including Christmas-themed ones. You got to keep one of the sets of pictures that printed, and then you gave one to the new bride and groom. My kids had a blast with it, and in this set of pictures, I had my son, Morgan, daughter, Catherine, and myself dressed up in Santa hats, fake mustaches, pipes, top hats, and more. We were giggling the entire time!

I saw the Paper House Christmas Costumes Puffy Stickers, and I knew I had to use them with these pictures... they just fit perfectly! Now, how would I get them to fit on the page and look like dressed-up items, but not cover up the pictures? Banners to the rescue! Add some Paper House Christmas paper and All I Want for Christmas 3D stickers, and you have a cool layout!

1) Start with a white cardstock. Mine had lines on it, and I cut it to 11.75" x 11.75" and glued it to a red and green dot paper.
2) Add some distressed embossing powder to glue around the edge and heat set it for a cool piping effect.
3) Splatter various colors of red and green mist on the page.
4) Cut strips from the Paper House Christmas Pad and other similar papers and layer into vertical strips (use different sizes to see them all) down the left side of the page. Ink all paper in light brown.
5) Cut two triangles of different sizes from the Paper House Christmas Pad, add to the vertical layers, then add the film strip on top. Add the Santa face sticker below.
6) Cut out five triangles for the banner from the Paper House Christmas Pad and layer them across the top of the page, then add the stickers to make them look like faces. Add a couple extra ones for the ends of the banner.
7) Cut three additional strips (various sizes for layering) of paper for the right side cluster and add title sticker.
8) Add journaling below title sticker.

Here are some close-ups of the layout.
