Stampbook Saturday: First Christmas!

Hello everyone, it's Kelly here with my first official post as a Trendsetter for this fabulous team! I am here today with a scrapbook page of my daughter's first Christmas. Scrapbooking is where I got my start in this amazing craft and over the years I have made a baby book and scrapbook of the first five years for each of my four girls. That was my intention, anyway!! I got distracted by stamping cards instead and as a result, this is the first page I have made for my fourth daughter! (She's three now!!)

The good news is that I discovered how great scrapbook pages look when stamped images are added. Today's page combines HoHoHo with my kids' photos for a fun Christmas look.

 I love the whimsical touch the stamped images add to this page. In the past, I would use stickers and die-cuts to decorate the page. I added the Santa and one reindeer to the text panel, making that reindeer Rudolph, of course!
For the bottom image, I used the two reindeer images and used the masking technique to create a line of reindeer waiting to pull the sled! Here is a closeup of that:
I also stamped some snowflakes wherever there was plain green cardstock to tie the whole page together.
The bad news is that I now have to go back to my older girls books and re-do their books using stamped images!!  Stampbooking is really like making a card that will last so much longer as a treasured memory. Try it yourself!!
