First up is a journaling block... I typed up a Christmas poem an then tore around it in the shape of a tree. Matted it onto greeen cardstock which is also roughly torn in the tree shape and added it to my page.
These next two pages have trees made from pattern paper... the first one I just cut some triangles and added some trunks. The second page the trees are cut from the patterned paper and raised on foam dots to add extra interest.
Now for something a bit more subtle, on this page the trees are from a set of rub-ons... small but just as effective.
Another idea, I used a chipboard border of trees on this page... luckily they were already green, but you can always paint or ink them to match your colour scheme.
Lastly for today, making the tree part of the page... Just a simple triangle of pattern paper and some photos strategically placed and there is your tree.
Hope these few pages inspire you to think out the box when adding a Christmas tree to your layouts.
Here is a page created for a non traditional paper Christmas challenge. I used 2 inch blocks and triangles and built the tree. I used my Families Pictures as ornaments.

I was very inspired by Cathy's layouts Christmas Trees, Several Ways. I love creating layouts with the bits and scraps of paper I have left over from previous projects. When I saw Cathy's idea I knew what I would do with the scraps I had left over from a project I had just finished that were still all over my desk!
Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY SCRAPPIN'!
