I knew without a doubt my favorite piece of this kit is this gold glitter card stock!
(part of the Cardstock Add-On
When I think of Christmas decorations, I think golds, silvers, metallics, reds & lots of sparkle and shine!
Gold glitter paper, is there anything better to be included in a Christmas kit??  I don't think so!
It is a beloved, cherished and hoarded piece in my craft room and brings all that love into a page!
I do think it is powerful that it is better used in smaller amounts, making it all the more precious...
(to quote Gollum: "my preciousssssss")


I love Christmas and I love decorating for it, bringing out new decorations that were just bought or carefully unwrapping a few hand-me-downs from special friends and family.  It is a tradition that I appreciate more with each passing year and want to always share with my husband and children.  This layout was to document the last year that this artificial (super disco cool) white tree was in our home.  

We recently renovated and so we will not have the place for that tree anymore.  We will have it in the den where it is cozier and near the fireplace and stockings, etc.  I do love that tree though.  It fit our 1950's mod style house perfectly.  Both my husband and I never grew up with a real Christmas tree, always artificial...
I know we were deprived...so we decided that we wanted to have that tradition with our children every year.


I wanted use this photo from last year with the white tree and wanted to use the gold glitter paper with it.
I used a Silhouette cut out of a random triangle background which I turned over, to look like a tree shape.
I cut that background out of this green Elle's Studio paper and then backed it with the gold paper.
Where there is a little gold...there should be more!  I cut out a couple of the Scrapbook Circle digital cut
files that are included in the kit and embossed them with gold wood grain.


I framed the photo with a cluster of pattered paper from Allison Kreft, some Elle's Studio tags,
a couple other embellishments from Fancy Pants and Glitz...using the gold letter stickers for my title:

#no more faking it!
