Naughty or Nice? Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon

Naughty? or Nice?

I am so glad to be here today! Literally dancing around in anticipation to share my holiday projects with  you all this month! 
 This project is pretty much a paper only project but using lots of glitter paper and glitter glue helps the page fully come alive! As I often do in my layouts, if any of you are starting to notice, I love doing oversized elements on a page. It really allows Lisa's incredible cutting files to come alive and all those amazing details to be shown! This Santa on it's own is so special! Imagine just Santa in the middle of a holiday card with a great pattern paper behind him, it's all you would need! 

 I began with the Starburst Shapes Cutting Files background and then added my elements. Remember that when you are seeing a cutting file, think that you can often take the pieces apart to use separately. Just as I pulled the stack of gifts out of Santa's hands in the Jolly St. Nick Cutting Files (used one Santa and the gifts from the other Santa option). You'll see what I mean with the cutting file image at the end of the post.

 For all you alcohol marker fans, don't forget that you can add detail to your die cuts using your marker. I added some grey shading to the white on Santa with my markers. As well as using a thin line of glitter to outline the white trim of his clothing.

Okay! This project is file heavy…here's what I used!

 Really appreciate you visiting today while I'm on my way to Disneyland! Woot! Woot! =)
