When it comes to scrapbook ideas for different events, Christmas is one of those special events that are on top of the list of events that need to be scrapbooked. If you're like me, you probably got one or ten photos that you'd love to turn into a Christmas scrapbook page but haven't gotten around to it yet.
Well, today we'll show you some christmas scrapbooking ideas so you can create a simple yet elegant page that captures that peaceful winter feel! You'll discover how to use a stencil to create stunning snowfall effects and much more for your next beautiful Christmas scrapbook layout 🙂
This also makes a beautiful Christmas gift that you may want to give to your family or loved ones to remember the season. You may also want to create your own picture frames or simple decorations for a crafty holiday.

Wait! Now That You Have A Theme For Your Page, Then You'll Need To Know What Layout To Use....Let Me Show You...
♥How to START and FINISH a layout to perfection (so no more pushing things around on a page for hours and hours).
♥How to get your creative juices flowing again so you'll NEVER experience scrappers block again!
♥How to always have the perfect scrapbook layout for every occasion!
1. Glue down the paper to a 12×12 chipboard using a matte medium.
2. Use your hand to distress the edges by pulling the paper down with a rolling motion.
3. Place the stencil over the top of your card stock (tape down your card stock to hold it in place). Now it's time to create our snowfall effect!
4. Use a spoon to randomly apply the Martha Stewart Sparkle Texture (when this dries it will look like falling snow!)
5. Allow sufficient time to dry (see product instructions).
6. Carefully peel the stencil off the card stock
7. You should now have a random snow drop effect on your christmas scrapbook layout.
8. Prime chippies with one coat of gesso and let it dry (by the way you can create some cool effects with Gesso on your pages, like this one here).
9. Add embossing ink on top of the gesso-ed chippie
10. Cover chippie with embossing powder then heat set
11. Distress edges of all papers using paper distresser
12. Add some random stamping on card stock and doilies or used craft paper
13. Position all the paper and embellishments to your liking. Then start adhering by using cardboard boxes and chipboard pieces to add dimension. You may want to fold used colored paper and make origami to add more dimension.
14. Add glass beads gel using a brush to flowers and other areas to add some sparkle
15. Let all the mediums dry! I hope you had as much fun giving this Christmas scrapbook page a try, as I did creating it!
