Peace, Love, Joy with Kara

Today's layout is another one for the Christmas Card Book. You would think I'm really far on these things since I post so many layouts recently. But I;m not as close as I want to be. The first of three books, I only need one more layout to be complete. The second book there are about 10 more to do and the third book has more than that. Having sketches each month and sometimes weekly helps me get them done.

This layout uses a Stuck Sketches sketch to get it started. I used red and brown cardstock by Coredinations and the patterned paper is by Little Yellow Bicycle. I cut some circles using the CM cutting system in brown. The last name die cuts are by Quickutz and the 2009 is a Cricut cut from Cricut Craft Room. I tried to journal on the lower circle but I messed up and now it's hard to read. I think journalling is important but I hate my handwriting whenever I do it.

The Christmas tree in a chipboard piece that I painted gold with Adirondack paint. Then I ran it through my Cuttlebug with a flourish embossing folder. I took a nail file to it to roughen up the look a little. The glittery chipboard swirl is by Recollections.
