The Christmas Emporium Book Continues....

Here we go again!

 It's been great hearing from you telling me you've got to get out your G45 papers and CREATE!

And some are even following along making Christmas Cards with these pages!

Whatever you're doing, it's wonderful to play along together.

The Box is up on the Graphic 45 Blog today!!!! YAY!!! So THRILLED!!!

Thanks so much to everyone there, especially Charee, I really appreciate the shout out!
You will be blown away with Jim's Wine Box also featured there. AMAZING!!!

So here's 2 more pages. If you've joined use late, the prepping of the book is in earlier posts.

I'm using this as the cover page.

I've fussy cut the toys, added Glossy Accents, and layered with chipboard.

The Santa from Christmas Emporium 8x8 Paper Pad is layered onto the back of Poppy Fields paper to frame.

I LOVE the little boys gazing in the window at Santa....precious beyond words.

Here again I used the Grey TomBow pen to add shadows. And Distress Inks for added depth and color.

The Tag is from the Christmas Emporium Chipboard Die-cuts 1 set. Wonderful pieces!!!

The Letters are from and old set from K&Co. that I added Martha's Copper colored Glitter with Glossy Accents.

The picture (as always with glitter) does not give it's TRUE coppery color justice. Honest....

Added Holly Berries all over with Burgundy Stickles where there were berries on the papers, and some I just made up to balance out the piece.

The other page is this Sleeping Little Darling. I could NOT go without using this great piece.

It's from the 12x12 Believe sheet. It's a rectangular piece, so I trimmed off the right edge and glued the frame section back on butting up the edges. When you cover it up with the tag and JOY, you don't see the seam.

The JOY is made with Gold Martha Glitter as well as the Maya Road Snowflake that we showed in an earlier post. (much more sparkly in person) No Perfect Pearls on this one.

I received this stunning copper metal Ribbon on a gift many years ago and have hoarded it.

This seemed like the perfect place to use it. I love how it scrunches.

The Christmas Stocking Tag is edged with Lime Green Stickles. (it has a bit of gold in it!)

I layered up the 1Cent Stamp and the Sleeping Darling onto chipboard for more depth.

The SD square is also framed onto piece of the 8x8 paper using the Dancing Family square on Happy Holidays. Just wanted a bit more framing here.

It looks like we only have 2 more pages to go, and we'll be done with the book.

Let me know how you're doing, and I'll be back later this week with the last pages.

Be Well, and Be Good to Each Other!

BEAUTFUL pages! It's so much fun seeing how you've used these lovely papers! I have been following along and have the box completed and the pages of the book stained with the distress inks. I lightly spritzed them with the sunflower sparkle perfect pearls mist too, for a little glitz. I haven't started layering the pages yet as I'm trying to figure out the order... so will start layering next week. What a great gift this will be for my daughter, who is a crafter as well! I LOVE Graphic 45 paper and will head over to their site next. Thanks for your beautiful art!
