Crazy for Christmas: Memory Keeping

Hey there!
We are so excited to bring you Crazy for Christmas this week,
filled with lots of inspiration from Reverse Confetti.
We have a theme for each day, so you'll want to check out 
the Reverse Confetti blog to see links to the projects for the past three days.

Our theme for today is Memory Keeping.

Now, as someone who's scrapbooked for over 12.5 years, 
I have scrapbooked a lot of Christmas layouts.
A lot!

And while I enjoy scrapbooking the photos I take on Christmas morning,
there are other elements of the holidays that I want to remember, too.

I decided to create a layout using some of the new products that were released last week
and some photos of my daughter helping me bake tarts.
I started by layering some Pink Paislee patterned paper over
some Bazzill Basics Classic White cardstock.

I stamped the "fresh baked" sentiment from With Love in two different colours of ink
to have it match my daughter's sweater.
I then did the same thing with the Alphabetical stamp set to spell out "GOODIES".
I love that these are the same font!

I used the same two inks to blend colour onto some cardstock
and diecut them using the Holly Confetti Cuts.
I pressed some Delicata silver ink onto my cardstock to diecut the berries.

I repeated the same blending and inking techniques on to another
piece of cardstock and diecut these using the Bubbly Tag Topper Confetti Cuts.
I adhered these to a Topped Off Tag Confetti Cuts, on which
I wrote out my journaling and stamped "joy" from With Love.


Here's a list of the other Reverse Confetti DT that are sharing
Memory Keeping projects today on their blogs:

Thanks for looking!

A beautiful layout Leigh (love the teal/turquoise); perfect for the star of the show: your pretty daughter! Mom and daughter baking is the best, especially because one of the key ingredients is love!
