I used one of the pictures from my hubby and I's self-directed Christmas photo shoot here at our home. We had a lot of fun and got some really good pictures.

I embossed the branches with white opaque embossing powder in the top right and left corner to give it a snowy feel to this layout.

I used my own tutorial to make the chipboard light fixture. I stamped the mailbox scene and layered the photo over it.

I used a real doily and one that I made with Heartfelt Creations dies. I love how layered it looks this way!

Of course, I made a bunch of poinsettias, leaves and flourishes for the flower cluster!

Here is the step by step write-up for this layout:
Cut out a shaped paper out of the center of the burgundy pattern paper. Put away the dies cut paper and use the reverse part for this project. Doodle faux stitches on the edges and adhere over a lighter background paper. Stamp and emboss with white embossing powder the branch from the Holiday Mail PreCut Set on both top corners of the paper. Stamp the mailbox image in the left side of the center of the die cut paper. Die cut a doily from the Layered Scalloped Posy Die and layer over 5” doily. Adhere over the right side of the layout and add your photograph over it, covering part of the doily and the stamped mailbox image. Make a light fixture chipboard piece following my own tutorial. Add finished piece over the left side of the photo. Die cut the matching metal fixture from the Decorative Metal Fixtures in white and place over the top of the light fixture. Die cut two decorative dies from the Decorative Metal Fixtures and add under the right side of the picture and on the lft side. The flowers will cover the empty space. To make the poinsettias, stamp different size poinsettias and die cut them. Bend them in half and layer them together, two at a time. Add dewdrops as centers and Platinum stickles on the edges. Let them dry. Stamp and die cut a bunch of poinsettia leaves and ink the edges. Bend them in half as well. Stamp and die cut a few of the berries from the Organic Fillers Precut Set. Also, stamp and fuzzy cut a few of the flourishes from the Holiday Haven Precut Set. Cluster the flowers, leaves, berries and flourishes under and to the left of the photo. For the sentiment, ink your sentiment, cover the parts that you don’t want to stamp with tape, and press down unto a pattern paper. Cut and emboss the sentiment with the third smallest die from the Shapeabilities Labels 4. Pop dot it and adhere over the right side of the picture and over the doily. To finish, add liquid pearl drops around the clusters and on the decorative dies.
