This was my last layout before I rushed out the door and onto a flight for freezing London and the birth of my brand new grandchild!

BUT – I was going to be home in time for Christmas – so decided to use Kaisercraft’s Home for Christmas range for my layout.

Inspiration for this layout came from the brand new Chippie and Charm packs available now at my2angels. This one is called Candid Camera, and contains two chipboard Filmstrips – slightly different in size, a chipboard ”Smile” inside a scribbled circle and three silver charms – a camera, a small ”laugh” charm and a larger ”Remember the Moments” pendant charm.

I printed my photos in a filmstrip style – these were taken last Christmas – and arranged them between the two chipboard pieces. All my chipboard was heat embossed using the Emboss-It Dabber and White Embossing Powder. The embossing is two or three layers thick, giving it that nice almost pure white look.

A piece of Green & White Bakers Twine is looped in and around the bottom of the film strips and photos, and I have threaded the three silver charms from the kit onto it.

The cute ”Smile” chipboard sits at the top, offset on a Christmas Memories sticker from the Home for Christmas Sticker sheet included in the paper pack.

The flowers are White Pointsettias, White Cherry Blossoms, White Hip Rosebuds, White Stamen Berry Spray Clusters, Green Foam Artificial Berries with Sugar Coating and Green 1cm Roses.

Also scattered around the page are some dots made with Evergreen Pearl Drops and a few Clear Rhinestone Dots. The two Christmas Tickets in the photo below are also stickers from the Kaisercraft Home for Christmas Paper Pack. 

I wish each and every one of you, and everyone you love a very happy and safe New Year xxx
