Super Star Christmas Layout

 Here is another layout for my Christmas card book. I hope you are enjoying the layouts for a little bit here on my blog. I'll get back to cards shortly. I won't show you every layout I make for these books. I promise.

So this layout was inspired by the sketch at Stuck Sketches {see below}. I rotated it from the original way the sketch was set up and had to scale things differently because my page is 8 1/2 x 11. 

My background patterned paper is by Me and My Big Ideas and the two supporting papers are by Bo Bunny. The tag sticker on the upper left and rectangle sticker on the lower left are both by Bo Bunny. The rectangle was a "to and from" sticker with a candy on it. I cut off those two things off so the sticker would match the layout. The glitter letters are by Making Memories. 

The gold stars are from my MIL sewing stash. When she went into a home many boxes came to live with us. These two sizes of stars and silver too were quickly stashed away for later use. I ironed them onto my layout. I love to recycle like that.
