advent tree

I previously shared with you here the advent tree that I crammed to complete last December.  It was one of the new fun holiday traditions we started this year.

Here is the layout I made of that...

I used Papertrey's Headline Alphabet dies, a round ephemera from Fancy Pants' Merry Little Christmas pack, glittered die cut and paper from DCWV and a 3x4 card from Echo Park.

I am also linking this to Leigh Penner's Pages with Papertrey Challenge here which is to add sparkle to your layout. Here is a close up of the sparkles. Love the shiny reds!

One of the best  things I got myself for Christmas is a wide format printer which can take in a 12x12 cardstock.  I have been  wanting to get this for a while but would always hesitate as it is quite pricey.  I finally bit the bullet and bought one when I saw that it was on sale at our local Staples.  Got it for a great price and had been very happy with it.  This was one of my biggest time savers for creating layouts over the holiday break.  And I have always loved the look of journaling incorporated into the base cardstock. Here’s a close up of how I printed my journaling directly to my cardstock

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. This looks fabulous, Irma! I love those sweet photos and that journaling card is perfect! Do you have a large format printer?

    1. Yes Leigh. Just recently bought a large format printer.

  2. Irma...this is so stinkin' sweet! I love your photos and Frances is just about as cute as they get!

  3. What a lovely Christmas tradition you've started. Your daughter will enjoy it for many, many years!
    Happy New Year!
