Pinterest Inspired Layout with Christmastime

Pinterest is one of my favorite sites to visit.  I get inspiration from so many wonderful, crafty friends around the world.  I was just enchanted by a lovely layout created by Finnabair.  I love the simple layers of patterned paper strips, the soft addition of the round doilies, and the vintage lettering.  I used all of those aspects in my latest layout with Christmastime.

I started by trimming 2 pieces of patterned paper to measure 7.75"x 4.5" and 8" x 2" and adhering to one of my favorite papers in the collection.  I cut and inked several strips of paper in 4 different patterns measuring from 1/2" to 3/4" wide.

Next, I began adding strips of paper and punched doilies. I spelled out my title on cardstock and cut around the words.  I stamped wings on cardstock and fussy cut.  I carefully used my fingertip knife to cut slits in the photo to insert the stamped wings.  I accented the layout with tiny flowers and self-adhesive pearls.

And, here is the finished layout.  I'm so happy with the inspiration I received from Finnabair's beautiful layout.  This photo of my sweet niece is ready for the holidays.
