12x12 Layout

Hello everybody

2011 is nearly over, I hope you all are getting ready to say good bye to 2011 and hello to 2012. I really hope that 2012 will bring only happiness and joy to all of you.

It was probably Halloween when I did few 12x12 layouts and since then I was busy with various things those that include crafting would be cards and mini books (read gifts) and so on.

Few days ago I wanted to do 12x12 page and I did not know were to start. Complete absence of inspiration. Then I remembered Once Upon a Sketch , I like this blog because it does not give you only fab sketch to work with but also journalling criteria gives you extra help with the inspiration.
So there is a sketch:
Journalling criteria was to write about Christmas day - what you do on the day. So it was just perfect for the day, and here is my page:

and a close-up of my journalling:

The light was very bad here today and I couldn't do very good photos of the LO. I will try tomorrow again before it is too late to enter this into the challenge. 

Here I used:
  1. Papers: Bo Bunny
  2. Dies: Spellbinders, Tim Holtz
  3. Stamps: Unity, Tim Holtz
  4. Inks: Ranger Distress
  5. Ribbon; Prima
  6. Bling: Imaginisce
And the photo of 2 little darlings from Christmas 2009.

Have a nice day

  9. Love the layout Svjetlana :) And I love the look of the blog... Also, I don't know if you're interested, but there is a crop being organised by a lot of the regulars from the ScrapbookStore workshops... A crop had been running for a while I believe, but they are looking for new members. It's held on the second Saturday of the month. Just thought I'd let you know!

  10. Lovely page, sketches are just the thing when inspiration needs a push :)

  11. Svjetlana, I (hope) I've just sent you a pm on the ScrapbookStore forum about the crop :)
