Christmas Past

I pulled out Christmas papers, but soon realized I did not have enough coordinating papers for a double page layout.

Do you ever find yourself in such a situation? I frequently do. I usually throw up my arms run to the nearest store and buy more paper. Not this time. It was getting late and I was not in the mood to battle the holiday crowds. Besides this was the year I was going to use what I have on hand. I also wanted to get in the Christmas spirit., NOW.

So this month I challenged myself.

1 double page spread, 2 sheets of patterned paper and 2 sheets of card stock and a few embellishments.

I cut my patterned paper to 10 x 10. Instead of cutting 2 inch strips, I trimmed the patterned paper into an “L” shape giving me a corner piece to work with.

The red pattered paper was “pieced together” and the pattern was matched in several areas. See if you can find them.

I challenge you to do the same. See if you can make a double page layout with only 2 sheets of patterned paper.

And have yourself a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!


  1. Those are lovely layouts, Deb. Thank you for sharing!

  2. Clever idea.... I think we are all so quick to just buy more paper than in using up what we have. Great challenge and lovely end result.
