You Make Me Merry

This two-pager is just one of many Christmas day scrapbook layouts you're going to be seeing over the next few weeks. I've got a lot of Christmas day pictures to scrap!

I didn't have many Christmas embellishments, so I decided to make some of my own. Those white stars are actually painted onto the page with white acrylic paint. 

Above is the star stencil that I used to paint the stars. I then painted the star stencil with the paint, placed patterned paper behind it, and used glue dots to adhere it to my layout.

One of the best things about scrapbooking is when you pull out random embellishments and make them work. This cluster of embellishments are not Christmas-specific, but they worked! And I was glad to get them out of my stash and onto a page.

Same goes for these embellishments. They just happened to be the right color and offer the right sentiment for these pictures.

Do you only use embellishments that match your papers or your theme, or do you just pull out whatever looks like it will work?
