Scrapbook and Cards Today - Winter Issue

First off, wishing everyone a happy, peaceful and blessed Christmas. This has been a crazy month with lots going on. To top things off, I got a nasty virus. I'm finally starting to feel ok, but trying to balance work, life and Christmas prep has been a challenge to say the least. As you can see, my blog has fallen way to the bottom of the priority list. But, I'm hoping to change that! On of my scrappy resolutions is to be a better blogger and add more interesting content to my posts. :) Anything in particular you'd like to see?

Today, I'm sharing a layout I have in the winter issue of Scrapbook and Cards Today. I have always loved this publication and am so excited to be working with them! I was invited to write the Easy, Detail, Expert article in the issue. You can see the entire issue here, by the way. Scrapbook and Cards Today Winter issue) It's fabulous!!

Anyway, here is the 'Expert' layout I created for the article.

I had a lot of fun with this one! The papers are all from My Mind's Eye. And the chipboard and cute little tape measure are from Maya Road. As you can see, I used my Silhouette on the title. I layered the title on a vellum pocket that I made and added confetti to.
My favorite part of this layout is embellishments. I painted the chipboard and then added glossy accents to them. Don't they look like glazed sugar cookies??
You can see the other two pages I made to coordinate with this one in the issue.
Well, that's it for today. Short and sweet. I leave you with a card that is stamped with my absolute favorite Christmas quote. I hope you all have a blessed Christmas surrounded by family and friends.
Thanks for stopping by!
