We have Dale Tiernans submission next.......

Oh Xmas Tree

Hi Shazza,

Here is my layout for December. It was a very inspiring poster. I immediately took inspiration from the Christmas tree. I have made a half a Christmas tree using a square punch. I've added a star at the top (also half) like the poster and added little stars along the side of the tree, again like the poster. The poster had a green base under the tree and I have included one in my layout also.
The base is white cardstock as per the criteria and I have a green and red title. I like that it all turned out crisp and clean. I think having a white background helped that a lot.
I've included two tiny Christmas hats in my journalling and in fact made the journalling all about the hats.
Aren't these stunning street decorations for Christmas?



  1. Love your purple & green here Dale, & your punched square tree - very effective! I also love your stitching & fab photos. Great work!

  2. I like the strip journaling and the little hats you added. Nice job incorporating elements from the poster.

  3. You don't think of purple as a Christmas colour but it really works here - well done.
