1st Christmas-Olivia

After a very long break from Scrapbooking (6 months!!), I'm back!!  I hand sketched and cut the tree and presents.  I used a circle punch for the ornaments, ribbon for the garland, and cut flowers for the bows.  I really didn't like the look of keeping the pictures straight, so I tilted them for flair.  Because this layout is for an 8x8 album, I try to keep them simple.

New toys to try out!!

For Christmas this year, I got several lovely new toys to try out!  My favorite is the Sizzix Texture Boutique which lets me emboss!  I was so excited to try it out, so I made a few cards.
