The Nutcracker

Good morning! I know we are two months away from Christmas but I got my hands on the new Graphic 45 Nutcracker papers and played. And my DH tells me that the store where he works is getting a truckload of Christmas stuff every day and they're running out of space to hide it!

I designed this layout for Paper Niche last time I was there.

As you can see in these close up pictures, I literally took the papers apart and put them back together. I layered each one of the graphics two and three times.

I also embellished the layout with tiny flowers, stickles and rhinestones. It took 9 papers to make it! Well, I found out that the more you mat and layer Graphic 45 papers the prettier they look.

Hope you are inspired to give it a try. Again, I appreciate you stopping by more than you know. Have a great and blessed Wednesday!
