Hi Maggi here to share some clean and simple Christmas layouts.  You might remember that a couple months ago I was working on a mini album.  Yeah, I’m just now getting back to it.  I gotta get my rear in gear ’cause Christmas is coming and this is a gift!
This layout celebrates Family and you have an instant title when it’s cut out of the frame!
I used a frame from the Together Frame Set on this layout and heat embossed it with Emerald CreekAncient Amber Embossing powder.
A Pine Cone Cluster colored with Lindy’s Mists topped with a festive poinsettia finishes this cheerful holiday layout.  I love how Lindy’s adds sparkle to the color.  The poinsettia is brushed with Wind of Stella gold.
Sweet baby’s first Christmas.  I think she looks so cute in the center of the wreath.
I used Distress Embossing Glaze in Fired Brick for the Merry Christmas title.  The set that this comes is is really nice as it has 5 titles all in different fonts and sizes.

The bow is embossed the same as the title.  I used two colors of Lindy’s to color the Holly Wreath.  I think using multiple colors gives depth and more closely mimics nature.I used a circle from the Love Artist’s Trading Coins set to frame the photo and place it on top of the inner wreath.

Both of these layouts are going in an 8 x 8 mini that I’m making.  They are quick and relatively flat so that they will fit nicely in the book.  Thanks for taking a look!
