Christmas Scrapbook Layouts- Let Your Heart Be Light


My favorite Christmas scrapbook layouts are full of whimsy and this 2 page layout is no exception with it’s red velvet hearts, black swirls, and stylized Christmas tree.  This layout also features one of the my favorite lines in a Christmas carol….”Let your heart be light.”

Start by cutting out pattern pieces and then trace them onto chosen scrapbook papers and cut out.  Cut a 1″ * 9″ piece of brown paper for the tree and then cut a 1/2′ piece of paper for the limbs of the tree.

Write or print out your title piece and the  “let your” and “be light” pieces.  Adhere title to a background paper leaving about 1/8″ boarder around the whole piece.  Then adhere to the right side of an approximately 4″ * 6″ piece of scrapbook paper.  Apply ribbon to the left side of title piece, adhere in the back so that you can tie a small piece of ribbon to the front of the ribbon for decoration.  Adhere complete title piece to another background scrapbook paper and leave a 1/8″ boarder.  Adhere to page and add a heart with dimensional tape or pop dots.

Assemble tree by adhering the trunk of the tree down.  Make sure it is not too close to the left edge of the paper so the limbs can fit on properly.  TIP: Only apply the adhesive to the middle of the trunk so that you will be able to slide the limbs under it a little.  Adhere limbs to page.  Apply circle bulbs to tree with dimensional tape or pop dots.   Add “stitches” to star with fine tip black marker and add to tree with dimensional tape or pop dots.

Christmas Scrapbook Layouts, close up of swirl and heartsTie small pieces of ribbon around the large cut out swirl.  Adhere swirls, large heart, small star, and circles with text to the right side of the right page.

Tape small pieces of ribbon on the back side of the frames or your pictures to add a little decoration.  If you have framed your photos you can add optional “stitches” with a black pen.  Adhere to pages to complete. 🙂
