Merry Table – A Colourful Layout

(This post is part of my Frosty Festivities 2013 Blog Event)

This hour I have a happy, colourful layout to show you…

Merry Table:

The photo may not look that exciting to most people, but this was the first time I’d attempted to make my dining table to look pretty for our Christmas meal, so to me it’s special. Plus I remember the joy I felt when I found the aqua glittery reindeer that I used as table centrepieces – they are so pretty!

I used the Glitz Designs Hello December collection on this page, because I love the bold patterns and colours – they make me feel happy like the table decorations did! To add extra colour I stamped the Roller Doodle Deer in several colours. I just used cats eye ink pads to ink each deer up individually before rolling the stamp on my page:

I love how it looks like lots of little deer are marching across my page:

I choose lime green letter stickers to finish the title, because though green is a traditional Christmas colour, this lime hue jazzes it up to make it more bold and modern:

What do you think of the bright and bold colour mix? Does it still seem Christmassy enough to you?

Be Inspired:

Use bright bold colours on your next project (maybe include some lime green)

Ink a stamp with several different colours

Scrapbook a photo about your winter or Christmas decorations/decor

I’ll ber back in an hour with another sponsored giveaway! Jennifer x

    This layout is really well done and I love how you connected the reindeer centerpiece to the page with the reindeer cut out. Well done!

  • interestingly to me the colours look very traditional and doesn’t look lime green at all really… think my eyesight is going with feeling poorly lol! Thanks for even more ideas and I love the deer stamping!

    Glad to see how you inked the roller stamp – will file that away in my bag of tricks, lol.
