Christmas Layout and Jar Decoration

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Weekend.  Our family had a wonderful time with our families in Windsor and at our cabin in Estes Park.  It was a cold weekend, but there was a wood burning fire all weekend and good company to go with it.  When I get together with my sibilings we laugh so hard about old times and new times.  Our kids just look at us like we are crazy.  They will get it when they get older.

Today, I worked on a fun Christmas Layout and vintage Jar Decoration using our Victorian and Retro Christmas Kits.  They turned out really cute. 

The pictures on the layout are of our Christmas Tree last year and a cool picture of one of our windows early in the morning.  It was cold and we had had a nice snow storm earlier in the week.  It really was Home for the Holidays.

Along with my own pictures I added a vintage post card.  I just matted it on blue cardstock and layered it on the page with pop dots to give it a little more dimension.

Another fun thing I added was a cut out piece from some of the patterened paper provided in the kit.  The only additional thing I added to this piece was some gold glitter.  Everything looks better with a little sparkle.

The other easy and fun project I did was to decorate a vintage bottle I had.  This decoration could be left on and saved for next year or could be removed.  Here is a close up picture of this fun jar.

You could fill this jar with glitter, powdered sugar, red hots or some other vintage Christmas candy.  It would only add more fun color to your decoration.

I hope you enjoyed these projects and they inspire you to start or keep creating for this Christmas.

Have a great week and create everyday.
