Today is a double post day for Design Teams for me.
I hope you will check them both out today and leave comments.
Today at BBTB2 our designer Jayne has challenged us to design a project for "Christmas in July".
I was so inspired by the wonderful projects that the BBTB2 designers and entrants made for the "Window to you World" challenge that I decided to use windows on a Christmas layout. I still had some Graphic 45 paper left from last year and thought it would be perfect for this.
I cut the window from the Christmas cartridge cutting the window at 4.5 x 5 using my Gypsy.
The red shape to accentuate the windows came from Elegant Edges page 33 cut at 4.5 x 5.5.
I had a few leftover chipboard pieces and also some other embellishments that had a vintage feel.
Here are closeups of the pages and the windows.
I used Tim Holtz Vintage Photo for distressing, a EK Success corner punch for the mats, and twine.
The snow on the window sills was made with a Pearl Pen.
I hope you have enjoyed and been inspired by my layout. Remember you have two weeks to create a Christmas project and link it up here at BBTB2. You also have one more week for the "Fashion" Challenge that started last week.
