Santa Claus is coming to town

I love "traditional" coloured christmas layouts, and loved the Father Christmas paper when I saw it so was dying to use it.

Looking at what papers would go together I came up with this layout, very circular which I felt made the rectangualr photos stand out more.

The photos are about 8/9 years old now, in all of them my son was very upset at having met this "stranger" which gave me the idea of the title due to the line "you better not cry, you better not pout"

I drew around plates to get the circular paper and cut them out by hand before inking the edges. The circles around the "ho ho ho" brad were just torn from a piece of red paper, screwed up and flattened back out again before layering up and putting the brad through the middle.


  1. love it! Very simple and I really love handmade embellishments at the moment.

  2. This is gorgeous - you're right about that Santa paper it's yummy. Love the richness of it all.

  3. Wow K, that is absolutely gorgeous!!!

  4. this is a lovely layout! very good work !!!

    Just a heads up that there will be a "Being Your" project post tomorrow on my blog. Come and see me and check it out :) {you signed up}
