Hello, friends!  Missy  here, and I have a fun Christmas layout to share today.  I used a few of the Gina K. Designs Foil-Mates and Gina K. Designs Fancy Foils to add some red, green and silver shine to my page.  I love incorporating the foils with mixed media products to create a fun and artsy layout.  I pulled the red and green colors from my photo of my daughter on Christmas morning and used watercolors to create the background.  I had some peppermint candy circle die cuts in my stash that looked cute on the background, so I used those as well.

Merry Christmas 2015 Scrapbook Layout Instructions:

To create these foiled pieces, you will need a laminator.  The Foil Mates are black and white.  You can customize them to whatever color you want.  I used the Radiant Red Foil here on the Ornamental Holiday Foil-Mate.  I used a flower punch and created several small flowers.  To add some shading, I smudged a red gelato over it.  I used the Glittering Green Foil over the Holiday Flora Foil-Mate and then fussy cut them out to add to the flowers.  I love how they shine!  I traced the circle die cuts first on the background and then used a brush and some plastic packaging with green watercolors.  After everything dried, I machine stitched around the circles with metallic silver thread.

Here’s the beautiful Sparkling Silver Foil.  This sentiment would look great on a card, but I fussy cut it and used it as a small title.  It’s from the Holiday Cheer Foil-Mate.

To create these poinsettias, I used the iCraft Mixed Media Sheets.  I hand drew the flowers and then smudged over them with a red gelato and my fingers.  I cut them out and tucked them in here under the photo.  I used the Deco Foil PeelnStick Toner Sheets to hand cut some leaves and then foiled it with the Glittering Green Foil.  You also need a laminator for those.  In the center of my flowers I attached some clear pebbles.

Here’s one more close-up of the page.  It’s fun to create something from scratch without using a particular collection.  It was easy to cut these flowers and make them unique!
