I recently created a scrapbook page with a theme of “making Christmas Cookies”. Every year our family sits down one afternoon and spends time together decorating cookies. It’s a tradition that we are teaching our kids to cherish, so what better way to preserve these memories than with a scrapbook page! Below, I will break down exactly what products I used to make each section. If you are not a “scrapbooker”, that’s alright. It’s easier for me to save memories in a simple form and a one page at a time style is what I use. I also use Project Life, as it’s the easy fix for my busy schedule.
The page itself is made from a piece of patterned paper. Pop of Pink DSP has a page with gold foil sprinkles, which I found perfect for a cookie themed project. It’s a 12″ x 12″ piece of paper and can be preserved easily into a frame, instead in a traditional book.
Here is a photo of my husband and our son, Nate, with Dad helping him in the placement of sprinkles. I framed the picture with a piece of patterned paper from Candy Cane Lane. The paper shows cookie sprinkles, which is a complimentary pattern to the project. I kept the reds I used the same (Real Red). I used a piece of washi tape to adhere the photo to the paper and then used snail adhesive to adhere this unit to the main page. In a project Life Accessory pack, I found a little round sticker label that allowed me to write on and stick to the photo.
Here is our other son, Trip, peeking out from a tree die cut, lol. In the Project Life Accessory Pack, there were several wooden die cuts still in their frame. I wanted to show this photo of him smiling but it just wasn’t fitting into the project. I am happy to have found this wooden piece that allowed his sweet smile to show! The same accessory pack had wooden stars, brown star stickers and washi. ALl of them worked well together so I used them all 🙂 I thought the little 2″ x 2″ NOM card needed to tie in to the red color a bit more so I added a small strip on the edge before adhering the unit with snail adhesive. Sticker letters were in the pack as well so it was too easy to feature the year. Not very complicated after all, which is just right for me.
Once my theme was set, I had the perfect stamp set to use! Cookie Cutter Christmas and the little gingerbreads fit into an empty area just right. I stamped in two colors to give variety and since I have two boys, I stopped at two cookie boys, lol. More stickers from the PL pack came in handy and I took the opportunity to write in their names. Candy Cane Lane DSP was my favorite Christmas paper this year so I fussy cut one of the gingerbread houses to match the cookie boys. More stickers from the pack that were trees, helped to create a tiny cookie themed scene that filled in the otherwise empty space on the page.
I can not leave off the hashtag, right? Another piece of paper from that same PL pack worked well to record a few special words about the project. I used the labeler stickers to write out the #christmascookies theme, added a few more stickers, another 2″ x 2″ card with a red strip and hand wrote a sentiment about the day. The Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker is sold as a single marker and it works perfect for this type of project. I adhered this unit with snail adhesive.
Last but certainly not least, I saved my favorite picture for the most beautiful pattern in this paper pack. The frosting and candy cane design on Candy Cane Lane DSP is so pretty that I left it whole as a background for this photo. My mom visited us for Christmas holiday this year and she is pictured here with our son, Trip, holding the finished cookies. I used snail adhesive to attach the photo to the paper and more snail to attach the unit to the base paper. Another sticker from the PL Pack gave me a spot to label the photo and I brought in some wooden stars. I added a few strips of washi tape and this project was DONE!
