December 2017 Recap Layout

I had a lot of fun creating this layout during a recent Scrapbook with Me event to recap the month of December from 2017. I always love looking over the pictures from past years as I do these Monthly Recap layout. For this layout I used the Holly and Ivy collection from Close To My Heart. This collection is the Featured Paper for the month of October.

This layout was inspired by this sketch from Stick It Down. You can see this sketch along with others here.

I used the retired Comfort and Joy Scrapbooking Stamp Set for the poinsettias. I stamped them in Candy Apple Exclusive Ink and then used Platinum Stickles to add some bling to the centers of the flowers. The branches were stamped with Evergreen Exclusive Ink. The title was die cut using the Simple Serif Thin Cuts set and the tag was die cut using the Tags and Tabs Thin Cuts set.
