Merry Christmas

So it is Christmas night the presents have been opened, the dinner has been ate and now i have the need to craft but my craft room looks so clean since i have company coming.

 my craft room is never this clean and it is screaming "mess me up" but i won't but i really want to.  Instead this is what i worked on

 Lego winter Christmas house.  The house is about half built and the rest is tomorrows project.

But the last three days have been full of crafting since i of course left all my projects that were Christmas presents to the last minute.  9- 12x12 pages. Here is a sample

and the close up of the flames.  Chipboard flames that i inked with distress ink, blue, orange and red, then covered with glossy accents.  Really makes the color pop and has the added bonus of blending the color.

 next page i used a pattern paper i had and cut out arrows and arrows and layered them on the page rotating directions and adding wood chevron shapes.

close up of twine, i love twine like to add it to all my layouts.  Here i used the tim holtz brads with hoops on the end ( i don't know what they are called)  then connected them with twine.  i like it a nice little accent.

and finally this layout is a 3-D one i created for my frames at home- but of course i will probably never put them in but i always have good intentions.
created the background chevron, ripped and distressed the edges of the background sheet, then ripped a slit on top and added the rub ons in behind.  I like to add a ton of embellishments to my page, and those always have to include, metal, chipboard, and twine.  Here i created made a border around the picture and then added clutters on the corners.

and close ups
