Here are some close ups of the layout:

Here is the step by step write-up for this project:
Trim 3/16 from each side of a 12"x12" pattern paper from the Celebrate the Season Paper Collection and adhere unto a white cardstock. Add white puffy paint to the bottom to mimic the snow on the floor and around the sleight and add clear glitter to it. Put aside to dry. Trim a darker colored pattern paper to 9"x7.5". Stamp the largest sentiment unto the background randomly a few times to create a pattern over the paper. Tear the paper with your fingers starting at the 5" mark on the left to the 7.5" on the right. Adhere to the background paper and add two 4"x3" photos over it. Stamp the Merry Christmas and the A gift of love sentiments on white cardstock. Round the edges on the Merry Christmas sentiment and add a Teal border all around it. Tuck in on the left side of the picture. For the other sentiment, die cut the sentiment using the Everyday Heroes Die. You might want to stamp it twice so that you don't ruin one of the pieces by mistake. Add a teal border to this sentiment as well and add to the bottom of the right side photo. Stamp and die cut a few poinsettias and holly on light blue pattern paper. Color the holly leaves and berries using Prismacolor Pencils. Layer two poinsettias together to get one flower and add Minnie Pearls Prills to their centers. Stamp the gifts on white cardstock and color using the Prismacolors and Crayola Coloring Pencils. Pop dot one to give it dimension. Add white puffy paint to the flowers, holly and gifts and add some clear glitter to make it look like snow. Let it dry. Once dry, add these elements to your layouts as shown.
