First Design Team Assignment

I am finally ready to post my creations for the Scrapbooking Studio's design team.  This month I was given two lines to work with.  The first one is Melissa Frances' collection, Deck the Halls.  Using some kraft card stock as a base, I made a simple card.  The string of round ornaments is machine stitched and then embellished with some stickles.  

I also made two single layouts using this collection and kraft card stock as my background.  For this first layout, I die cut some snow flakes and then misted the page and with the snowflakes laying on the card stock and acting as a mask.
Buttons are threaded with baker's twine and then stuck down to act as a garland.

Some stitching at the top and bottom of each page for detail.
The second layout is a on a Melissa Frances paper and layered with many of the patterned papers from the Deck the Halls line. I spritzed a little red Maya Mist on the edges of the paper and cut up a triangular banner and repositioned it so that it would curve slightly upwards.  A little baker's twine finished it off.

 I still had a bunch of paper and little stickers left over, so I whipped up a couple of tags and embellished them with some baker's twine.

Back tomorrow with my mini album using Echo Park's Happy Days.
