Check the list of goodies that it takes to make this Christmas scrapbook layout — yule love it!

To create this layout you will need:

Check out the whole Joy to the World collection in the video below!

Step 1: Use a piece of holly leaves and berries designer paper as the base for this layout. (Tip: To conserve paper, you may wish to use the 12-inch Trimmer to remove the inside.) Cut a piece of plaid designer paper to measure 11-1/2″ x 11-1/2″ and adhere to the base. Adhere the candles laser-cut border to the top of the layout.

Step 2: Crop three photos to measure 5″ x 3-1/2″. Cut three 5-1/4″ x 3-3/4″ pieces of navy blue snowflakes and teal dots designer paper for photo mats. Mount all on the layout as shown.

Step 3: Make the trees. Cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ piece of red holly berries designer paper. With the CM Zero Centering Ruler, mark the middle at the top short edge. Cut from the mark to the bottom-right edge and then again from the mark to the lower-left edge. Repeat with green holly leaves tonal and gingham designer papers. Cut three 1/2″ x 1″ pieces of gold stripes tonal paper for trunks. Mount all on the layout as shown.

Step 4: Using the outside edge of the smallest Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Red Blade, cut a circle from a white variety mat. Adhere holly sprigs stickers around the circle and adhere to the layout.

Step 5: Add additional stickers, popping some up with Foam Squares for added dimension.

Step 6: Journal on the mat as desired.
