Last week Karen posted a wonderful cover of a vintage Christmas book. Here's the image she posted.
I have several photos of my son visiting Santa every year before Christmas. I have been wanting to create a scrapbook of these pictures and I thought this would be the perfect cover.
Because the image that Karen posted was beautiful just as it was, I didn't want to do too much to it to "dress" it up. I printed the image, inked the edges and adherered it to an 8.5" x 11" piece of patterned scrapbook paper. I added a few embellishments.....ribbon, buttons, brads, sticker....and then adhered this to a heavy piece of 8.5" x 11" chipboard. Here's a picture of the finished cover of my "A Visit From Saint Nicholas" scrapbook.
Here are a few closeups of some of the elements I added:
Sticker and brads
Ribbon and buttons
Felt star and button
Now I have a wonderful scrapbook for these pictures of Alex visiting Santa Claus
Thanks to Karen for posting this great Christmas graphic.
