It's Christmas Time at H2H!

It's nearing the end of September, which means Christmas is just around the corner!  So, to get you thinking about the holidays, this week's challenge at H2H is to create something Christmas-related.  It can be a card, scrapbook layout, gift item or anything else you want to make.  Of course, since my true paper crafting passion is scrapbook layouts, that is what I decided to make. 

I used the all new Pear and Partridge WOTG kit.  To make sure I had enough materials to complete this layout, I cut all the papers for the two layouts included in the kit first, and then came up with this layout from the remainders.  This layout is based on a pattern from the awesome new Make If From Your Heart publication, and I love how it turned out.

I stamped the title using the Trinity Alphabet set and adhered the cut-out letters on top of the ribbon.

I plan to add my journalling on the thin Colonial White stripes on the right side of the layout.

CTMH Products used to create this layout include:
Papers: Pear and Partridge WOTG (G1052), Colonial White, Cranberry and Desert Sand cardstock
Stamps: Trinity Alphabet (E1021)
Inks: Desert Sand and Cranberry
Embellishments: Chocolate Striped Grosgrain (Z1617), Red Sparkles (Z1326), Pear and Partridge Complements Glittery Rub Ons (X7162C)
