Hi friends! Dana here today sharing a holiday scrapbook layout. I switched up my usual layout size from 12×12 to 11×14 by using a gorgeous Linnea poster calendar as the base. The expanded size was fun to embellish with some of my favorite adhesive techniques.
All the pretty trees on this calendar poster had me thinking of my own decorated Christmas tree. The 2018 holiday season was extra special because it was the first year we celebrated the holiday in our new home.
Adhesive Techniques for Holiday Crafting
Chipboard is a great way to add texture and dimension to a project. My go-to adhesive for chipboard, especially script or intricate designs with lots of curves, is the E-Z Runner Petite Permanent Dots Dispenser. A quick swipe of this runner over chipboard applies a layer of adhesive dots. Don’t let the size of these dots deter you from using them on large chipboard pieces. The adhesive dots are small but extremely strong!
I used Adhesive Dots Medium to secure the chipboard letter tiles across the top of the poster calendar. The 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit with Foil is themed for Winter and includes pre-cut 3D Foam shapes of trees, stars, snowflakes, and other Christmas designs, with 5 sheets of Metallic Transfer Foil. I used several different sizes of 3D foam circles and the metallic transfer foil in several colors to add shimmery dots around the poster. I added mini gold star sequins to the background using Adhesive Dots Micro.
The gorgeous dimensional bow shown above is a 3D foam design from the Holiday Embellishment Kit that I covered with red metallic transfer foil. I used Crafty Foam Tape to attach the pinecone, a more heavy embellishment, and my photo to the poster. Creative Photo Corners in Gold were the perfect finishing touch to add a bit of sparkle.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to save old calendar pages to use in your crafting.
