Be Merry Layout for Children

Hello fellow paper artists, its Bridget here with another Design Team project using the Be Merry range from Couture Creations. 

As the school holidays are upon us, it can be a little tricky keeping the children occupied. 
For my project I have created a super easy layout that the children can make using your Christmas photos. 

I am going to apologize upfront. My camera decided to go on strike so there aren't too many photos as they came out really fuzzy. 

The measurements for all the pieces are as follows (from the bottom layer up): 
Background polka dot - 12" x 12" 
Charcoal paper with reindeer & presents - 3 3/8" x 12" 
Multi Colour stripe paper - 8 1/8" x 8 1/2" 
Cream paper with large stars - 3 1/2" x 8 3/4" 
Charcoal with multi colour starts - 6 3/4" x 7" 

Once you have cut all the pieces glue them down as per the photo of the layout. 

You will need 3 photos for this layout. (1) 4" x 4" & (2) 3" x 3". 
Mat them if desired and place onto the layout. 

To make the rosette cut a piece of paper 1 1/2" x 12". Score every 1/4" using a score board or scoring tool.
With a 1 1/2" circle punch, cut one out of leftover pattern paper as the backing to glue your rosette to and one out of the Cyan glitter cardstock. 

Glue the two ends of the strip together, press it flat to "fan out" the rosette. 
Apply some hot glue to your backing paper rosette and place your rosette on top..hold in place until the glue has dried. 
Now glue your glitter circle on top, add the snowflake from the ephemera pack on top and adorn with a purple rhinestone from the Gemstones pack. 

Decorate the gift border strip from the ephemera pack with Glitzin Glamour glitter glue as well as more rhinestones. 

Die cut the Merry Christmas die from Seasons Greetings collection twice, once from Cyan glitter cardstock and once from a piece of charcoal paper from the Be Merry paper pad..this is the bottom shadow layer. 
Glue them on top of each other, keeping a slight offset. Place at the bottom of the layout. 

Choose 3 tags from the Mini Tag set and tuck those under the photo.
