washi tape christmas tree layout | doodlebug design

You guys!  I don't know how this happened, but I just came across a bunch of Christmas project blog posts from the last few years that I didn't upload and share here! I'm so sad that I missed I'm going to share them over the next few days.  If I can find the products available somewhere I'll link below - if not, hopefully the ideas are still inspiring - even if you use different products!


The first layout I want to share was created for the Doodlebug Blog!  I used one of their awesome Christmas collections.  You can see lots of fun Doodlebug Christmas products HERE - check it out!!

  I couldn't wait to create a fun tree for last year's Christmas PJ's layout.  Here's a look at the completed page, but keep reading for more details!

I started by cutting a Christmas Tree shape out of white cardstock.  I used the same piece of cardstock for my layout base.  After I added a piece of patterned paper, the spot where the tree was cut out is covered up.  Here's a look at the back.  You could actually create a fun layout right on this side too!

Anyway, back to the tree.  After I cut out the simple tree shape, I started adding strips of washi tape.  I didn't want it to get too busy, so I alternated two different designs.  You can either trim off the edges, or fold them to the back.  I did a little bit of both.  After the front was covered, I added lots of coordinating glitter sprinkles and made a make-shift pot to put the tree in.  I added it to the layout with foam adhesive squares for a bit of depth.

Don't you just love these new "Abigail" letter stickers?  I sure do!  They worked perfectly for my title, and I used a sticker (again on foam squares) with a heart shaped clip for the subtitle.

I wanted to keep the page pretty simple so the focus could stay on the photos and the big tree, but I had to add a few embellishment clusters like this one with stickers and enamel sprinkles.

And, of course, another bit of washi tape here on the bottom:
