Anso's Class 9 December 2007 - Deck The Halls

“Deck The Halls” class – by Anso



Supplies needed:

Love Elsie    Noel – Soft Charms

Love Elsie    Noel – Rub-Ons

Love Elsie    Noel – Cardstock Stickers

Love Elsie    Noel – “Recipe Book” paper (unless you’re really careful with cutting these and keeping an eye on the pattern of both sides of this paper for what you need, I would advice you to get two sheets of this)


Also needed:

Glue (I use Herma removable)

Small piece of white cardstock (long & narrow)

Black Slick Writer

Charcoal Chalk Inkpad (optional)


  1. Start by cutting your patterned paper to size. I scrap in true A4 size, so I cut mine to 29,7x21 centimetres (cm). Please feel free to adapt to another layout size if you prefer. We will be using the snowflake side of the paper for the base of the layout.


  1. Also pick your photo. I’m using a standard 15x10 cm (6x4) photo of a Christmas tree. If you’re working on a bigger sized layout (say 12x12) then a larger photo would also work great.



  1. Get your piece of white cardstock and use your black pen to draw three border strips (see photo below) – make sure you do this by *hand*. The whole point and charm with these are that they should not be perfect and done with a ruler. Fill in black squares (again vary the length for a handmade look). You need to end up with one about 14 cm long and two at about 18,5 cm each.



  1. Cut out your drawn borders. Also cut a piece of  the white wavy line from your patterned paper. This needs to be the length of the shortest side of your photo (ie. 10 cm in this case). Then locate some nice strips on the patterned paper that you like the look of (see below for what I chose) and cut a piece about 15,5 cm long by 5 cm tall. Ink the edges of these if you wish.



  1. Time to assemble. I’m putting my photo slightly off centre. Add your paper piece with the strips about 4 cm from the bottom and 2 cm from the left side of the layout. Centre the photo on top, half overlapping the paper (see photo below for placement) and glue the scalloped paper piece at the top edge of your photo.



  1. Glue your handmade borders in place following the lines of the photo. Pick a journaling square from the cardstock sticker sheet, journal and add in place on the layout. I like to outline this with my black pen for it to stand out a bit better.



8. Pick some cardstock stickers words that you like and add them near the right top corner of your layout. Again outline in black if you like. Cut out the “Deck The Halls” from the rub-on sheet and add to the left of your photo.



9. Finish off by adding a little dotted border in black around your journaling block, add some rub-on parcels above it and some cardstock sticker stars above the “Deck The Halls” rub-on. And you’re done!



I hope you enjoyed my class! Wishing you lots of fun creating your own version!


Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year!
