Christmas Tree Farm by Laura

Hi there!

Laura here with a fun new layout and a process video tutorial to share today! As you probably know by now, this month's kit, features the Crate Paper "Fa la la"  collection, and I just could not stop creating with it.  There were so many fun elements that triggered ideas to create!

Today's page was sparked by an idea that came about when I saw this fabulous stamp and die set that was included in the kit! How much do you love it?!

I had so much fun stamping the little trees and cutting them out, be sure to watch the video for a fun tip!

I used some regular ink pads and some Distress Oxide ink pad to create my treess.  I stuck to pinks and teals but used a couple of shades of each. It was interesting to see how the different inks stamped up.  I also used a pretty gold metallic in to add the pattern to my little trees.

Then I layered then all on my page, at first I thought I made too many and would have some to save.  But in the end, I used them all!  I love the way they look like a tree farm - just exactly what I am documenting!

I added a multi font title, because you know how much I love them!

I also tucked in a few other pieces of ephemera, chipboard and stickers, and then sprinkled around some sequins and some gold colour shine and soft teal Prima mist.

As mentioned, I have a process video for this layout, you should watch it!  Here or on my You-Tube channel, which ever you prefer!
