The only tricky part was that I wanted to add some detail to the sweet little mittens that run across the bottom of the pages…and I kept dropping the beads and sequins! Duh! I pulled out my Embellie Gellie and easily picked up each piece and added a dot of The Best Glue Ever. I waited a minute for the glue to get tacky then I simply touched it to the page and it stayed exactly where I wanted it to stay! See how I was able to position the little red “cherries” so perfectly?
And the teeny-tiny gold star sequins really light up those little Christmas Trees, don’t you agree?
I added one last detail to the bottom right of the layout: a small silver snowflake charm attached with baker's twine.
The layout is mostly red and white so I reached for the Maraschino twine from The Twinery. It looked good but I thought it was a little too bright so I pulled out some of my tea-dyed twine. The difference is very subtle but to me it made all the difference. In the picture below I tried to show you both - the piece of twine in the center is the original and the two pieces on the outside are tea-dyed.
I really love the way this layout turned out - the difference was in the details!
