December Days is all about documenting the those December holiday happenings. It beautifully coordinates bold, striking colours with soft and delicate tones. 
As my layout is all about my daughter & I preparing for Christmas 
- Eeeep! Yes that's me in the photo - 
I wanted to create a page that was really feminine and soft. 
Here's what I came up with.....

"Christmas Is Coming"

Oh this is just the prettiest!!! 
I have used that divine pink with gold foiled everything, and added soft grey and red accents to my layout. The result is just so delicate! I LOVE this colour combination!
That oh so pretty pink pattern paper is the B side of CHRISTMAS LIGHTS - it would hands down be my most loved colour in this collection! That subtle grey paper is called CHRISTMAS MAGIC and is also pretty special! They both offer the appearance of falling snow, and lend to all the snowflake embellishments that I've featured on this page. 
I have used the 3 x 4 FOILED JOURNALING CARDS (the ones with the snowflakes of course! ) and placed them on either side of my sweet photo. 
Here's a closer look for you...... 

That card is just stunning! 
And so are all the gold foiled DIE CUTS, CARDSTOCK STICKERS, 
The repetition of snowflakes and stars really builds that sense of Winter Wonderland!

My sweet photograph has been mounted on the GOLD FOILED CHIPBOARD FRAME snowflake................

You'll also notice a very subtle stencil snowflake beneath the mounted photo & frame - so pretty!
I have also used the same paint for 'snow drops' on my page. 
Speaking of snowflakes, how about those incredible PUFFY & FOILED WOODGRAIN STICKERS?!! With such an intricate design on them, they really have that WOW factor!
The use of wooden embellishments, including the WOODEN BUTTONS adds warmth to the cooler colour palette. The tiny accents of red have the same effect, bringing balance and interest to the overall design.

Pretty colours, golden everything and snowflakes galore = Christmas Perfection!
La la LOVE it all! 
And I hope my layout has inspired you too!
