X is for Xmas

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter X. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their X element will be featured in their post.

If you came from Jenifer then you're on the right track!

I had to take the easy option here and use Xmas as my prompt. I discovered a Santa photo from 2014 that I hadn't scrapbooked so I thought it would be a perfect time to showcase the new City Sidewalks Paper Packet as well as the Christmas Thin Cuts.

Here is the layout I created using the fun striped paper as my background. I also used some of the Willow Cardstock and cut up a page from the My Crush Happy, Happy Christmas as the background for the photo.

The Christmas thin cut is perfect for Santa photos or any Christmas themed pages! I added the photo part of the title using some alpha stickers from last year's Christmas pack, and the Kraft tree is from the retired White Pines Complements.

I used one of the City Sidewalks PML cards to mat my journal box, on which I stamped lines and this cute Ho Ho Ho sentiment from the Reindeer Bells stamp set.

Here is the layout complete with photo- my boys were so little!

I am linking this layout up with this week's BTF challenge to use City Sidewalks.
