Melanie's Monday Column 12-21-2009

Today I'll share my second layout from the Christmas Jewels kit called Holiday Joy.

I used some distress stickles on the Prima Holiday Lights Branch to bring out the berries. By cutting the branch up, I ended up with 3 pieces (use metal snips for this so you don't ruin your sissors). This piece was embellished with a Prima Poinsettia, included in the kit.

Here's a close-up of the berries.

In the kit they are 25 of these really cool numbered cards. They would be perfect for a mini book, journaling blocks or just an embellishment. I used mine as journaling blocks and embellished them.

In the kit is a gold piece of Hambly Studios clear screenprint transparency. I cut mine into pieces and used them as a background. Here's a close-up of the bottom of the page.

On this layout, I used some Prima Bling (which I purchased from the store).

Wishing you the best Holiday Season!!!!!
