Noel: The Very Best Gift

Welcome to day 3 of our Noel paper pad feature! These projects are definitely putting me in the holiday spirit!


Very Best Gift Layout by Leslie Ashe:

The Noel collection paper pad is AMAZING. It’s got such beautiful, soft tones as well as vibrant rich tones. Both work so WELL with Christmas. Not only that but Christmas themed pictures centered around a precious baby.

Pairing black and white photo’s with the soft blues & cremes, plus a dash of silver, gold & white, really bring this project together to center the focus around my subject, little baby Liam. Isn’t he the CUTEST! His mom is one of my dear friends. She’s also a fantastic professional photographer and she snapped these of her cute boy. I thought how perfect they were for my Noel layout. Liam is a miracle boy & he’s one amazing gift to his family.

I raised a couple of the Artisan Chipboard stars to give this project a tad of dimesion. Adding a little cluster of embellishments under Liam’s photo’s is my final finishing touch & sums up my project quite well.

 Noel and Merry Cards by Shellye McDaniel:

It was a fun challenge to create this pair of cards using nothing but the Noel paper pad.  I chose papers that had artwork that could easily be cut out by hand and then used foam dots to bring the pieces to life!  And you don’t need fabric ribbon when you can create a paper bow from simple strips of paper…fun!

    Wonderful layout and cards. My husband picked up this paper pad for me last night on his way home from work. It is beautiful. I really loved seeing the soft tones and the vibrant colors all in one pad. The graphics are lovely too. I am going to use it for some Christmas layouts and cards too. Thanks for the great products.
