Santa Layout

For the last few years (or more) the LSS owner has Santa (her husband) come to the store. Customers' kids get their pictures taken with Santa for free. We also have a layout kit available for purchase, which I design. In the past I've chosen the papers I would use, but this year the owner asked me to use specific ones that were ordered for a class that had fallen through. I don't think I would have chosen those papers on my own, but it turned out all right.

The ornament was cut using a Sizzix die and embossed with Cuttlebug embossing folders. A brayer was used with the Ranger Ink "Peeled Paint" distress ink to color the raised pattern green. The ornament was the December Make & Take that I designed specifically to go with the Santa layout, although it is separate and can be used for any Christmas layout or card.

The Christmas tree was cut with an Ellison die. It was dressed up with Stickles and rhinestones. The star on top was a sticker.

The label and insert were from the Tim Holtz Alterations dies (the insert is a magnetic die that fits into the other). It's the Ornamental label die.

The "dear Santa" was from a long Sizzlit Advent Calendar die, and the 2010 was from a Cuttlebug alphabet.
