Bah Humbug Challenge #1

For my entry to this great new challenge Blog, I decided to do a layout. I used some Christmas paper bags and some ribbon which came wrapped around pyjamas that my daughters got as Christmas pressies.

I used Core-dinations Chocolate box papers as my base. The word 'Festive' was done by placing chipboard letters under the cardstock and sanding over the top. It turned out quite well.

The image was triple embossed and then edged with mica powder and embossed again.

I just loved the paper gift bags with the gnomes on. They came from Ikea and the other paper bag came from a local shop.


  1. wow Karen you used some amazing techniques on this and it's great to see someone scrapping their Christmas photos too. That's something else that's on my good intentions list and sometimes just doesn't happen.
    Love the way the letters have turned out - just brill. Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Bah! Humbug! Good luck in the draw and I hope we'll see you joining in future challenges.
