2Crafty December DT Work

It's my turn to share my creations at the 2Crafty blog today. Here's my post:

"Crazy Santa Hat"
2Crafty has some fabulous Christmas chipboard pieces, 
so I thought I'd make some layouts using photos from past Christmases 
to share this December. This is my sister and her family from a couple of years ago 
being silly with a crazy Santa hat.

How wonderful are the "Mini Reindeers." I treated the reindeer with a white embossing powder 
that has silver glitter in it, so it's festive and sparkly. 
I adorned him with a red Zing glitter-embossed star from "ATC Tiny Hearts and Stars" 
and mounted him atop a "Small Filmstrip" inked with black ink.

This lovely script word is from the "Christmas Mini Word Set 1." 
I used the same sparkly embossing powder on this.

The Santa word is also from the "Christmas Mini Word Set 1." 
The word HAT was created with letters from "Alpha Set 1." 
I painted the letters green and then sprinkled a green glitter on them. 
More stars from the "ATC Tiny Hearts and Stars" were treated 
with silver Zing embossing powder and sprinkled about for a magical touch.

A silver embossed "Funky Snowflake" drew attention to my sister's picture, 
which I layered over a waste piece of chipboard from the "Polaroid Assortment Frames." 
Saving the outlines is always a bonus.

"Pure Joy"

This is my {step}dad who passed away Christmas before last wearing the same Santa Hat. 
I've been making pages for my mom, and I'll give this to her this Christmas.
 There's lots and lots of glitter and shimmer on this page, 
but the camera unfortunately didn't pick up the beautiful sparkle. 
You can see some of the sparkle on my closeups

I decided to use a whole pack of the "Mini Bauble Trees" on my layout. 
I coated them with silver and gold Zing glittery embossing powder. 
The little circles on the branches are perfect for adding jewels or pearls. 
I used white sparkly embossing powder on the "Pure Joy" title.

The frame from the "Polaroid Assortment Frames" was coated in the same 
sparkly white embossing powder, as was the Celebrate from the "Card Word Circles - Sentiments." A gold-glitter embossed "Funky Snowflake" added a little extra something 
to the frame. Finally, I added tiny stars from the "ATC Tiny Hearts and Stars" 
to mimic falling snowflakes. I painted them with white acrylic paint and then brushed them 
with Icicle Stickles, which gave them a lovely iridescent shine to match 
the torn paper snowbanks, which I also coated with the Stickles under the Christmas trees.
