Spread Christmas Cheer with this Christmas Scrapbook Spread

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! As the season draws nearer, now’s the time to start preparing your Christmas scrapbook layouts so you can fill them with festive photos once the hustle and bustle subsides. Check out this Christmas spread for some ideas and inspiration on how you can bring the spirit of the season to your pages this year!

To create this layout, you will need:

Step 1: Use the red patterned paper for the base of the spread.

Step 2: Cut two pieces of plaid patterned paper to measure 12″ x 2-1/2″ and adhere them to the bottom edge of both sides of the spread.

Step 3: Cut two pieces from the beige dot patterned paper to measure 12″ x 2″ and adhere them just above the plaid patterned pieces on both sides of the spread.

Step 4: Using the Ornament Chain Border Maker Cartridge, punch two borders from the Dark Green Cardstock. Adhere them to the bottom edge of the beige dot patterned pieces using Repositionable adhesive. (Note: Save the tiny strips that remain for hanging the ornaments in Step 11.)

Step 5: Cut a piece of white patterned paper to measure 4-1/4″ x 9-3/4″. Round the corners of the paper on the right side with the 2-Way Corner Rounder and adhere it to the far left edge of the layout.

Step 6: Cut a piece of white patterned paper to measure 6-1/4″ x 9-3/4″. Round the corners of the left side of the paper with the 2-Way Corner Rounder and adhere it to the far right side of the layout.

Step 7: Cut a piece of green patterned paper to measure 3-3/4″ x 9-1/2″ and adhere it on top of the white patterned paper on the right side of the spread.

Step 8: Cut a piece from the green patterned paper to measure 5-3/4″ x 9-1/2″ and adhere it on top of the white patterned paper on the left side of the spread.

Step 9: Using the outside of the small Custom Cutting System Rectangle Pattern and the Blue Blade, cut three mats from Dark Green Cardstock.

Step 10: Cut a mat and two photos (one vertical and one horizontal) using the outside of the small Custom Cutting System Rectangle Pattern and the Red Blade. Adhere them to the Dark Green Cardstock mats.

Step 11: Cut three pieces from varied patterned papers to measure 4″ x 4″.  Using the Petal Frame Punch, punch along the edges. Mat the ornament embellishments on the Petal Frame Punch pieces and adhere them to the spread using Foam Squares. 

Step 12: Cut photos to measure: (2) 3″ x 3″, (2) 4″ x 4″. Adhere photos to the spread, as shown.

Step 13: Adhere stickers and embellishments to the spread. Adhere some with Foam Squares for added dimension. Journal as desired.

    1. Hey Leslie! We understand your frustration. If it helps, the Merry Little Christmas Embellishments will be back in stock in late December! We’ve also placed a re-order for the Ornament Chain BMC, and we are hoping that will arrive soon! If you’d like a substitution for that BMC, we’ve seen people create this layout with the Crystal Chain BMC!
