Waiting for Christmas – The Color Room #175

Hello there, lovelies!!! And just like that first of December is here! I am slightly panicking about the date, as I have not done any Christmas preparations yet and there is still so much to do *sigh*. But now to more fun stuff than stressing about Xmas time…

First of the month means that there will be a new colour palette up over at The Color Rooms. This one is soooo pretty! I just love, love, love this colour combination!

You are supposed to use this colour combination on your artworks and in addition incorporate some wrapping paper as a household item. On my layout I used the wrapping paper (the „ho,ho,ho“ one!) like regular background paper and sew it onto the cardstock base. Other than that I used the color combo on the various embellishments and kept the page very clean & simple.

The photo has a funny story to it. We had been visiting relatives over Christmas in Finland that year and had been spending lots and lots of time outside in the snow. It was sooo cold, that when I took this photo of my son playing outside, the camera almost „froze“ and refused to work properly. So therefore this blurry picture :). But it shows how much he still enjoyed the snow, despite the freezing cold weather… just had to keep this photo!!!

and here are some close-up photos of my page:

oh, and here is proof that I really used a wrapping paper ;-)…

I also made some cards!! I used the bits and pieces of the wrapping paper I had left over after finishing the layout. The baubles, the banner and the flag/tag are made out of it. I first adhered the wrapping paper on cardstock and then cut it in suitable sizes/patterns. The background is made with white spray ink and a stencil (by The Crafter´s Workshop). I´ve used this same idea on these cards previously.

A fun challenge, isn´t it? Hope you will all join in on this one!! Sadly, this will also be the very last challenge over at The Color Room – you can read more about it here. It has been a great pleasure being a part of the TCR team and I am very sad to see it close it´s doors. So let´s give TCR the best goodbye we can, shall we? I hope many of you will find the time to join in on this very last challenge, even though Christmas is around the corner.. Have fun with the palette and see you at The Color Room!!!

Thank you for having me Lydell and thanks for a wonderful time on the team <3.

Happy crafting,
xoxo, Sanna
