Christmas LO using Celebrate w/ Flourish

Yes, I know I am behind but I am trying to do something about it! :) I used the NEW Cricut Lite cartridge Celebrate with Flourish. This cartridge is fantastic! It really adds a lot to your pages! Here are the pages (I hope you can see the "true" LO with all the paper covering our pics! Not all of my LOs will be covered, I promise!) On to the pages...
I used Recollections cream paper for the background and all of the other paper is Making Memories Fa La La La collection (I loved this paper so much when I saw it, so I bought a TON and am finally using it up).
The "Merry Christmas" saying was cut at 3 1/4". I love that I was able to use 4 different papers for this, it really helped to tie the title in with the rest of the paper/page!
The poinsettias are also on this cartridge and were cut at 2 1/2". I also added scraps of ribbon to some of the pictures. I think the cream "ruffled" ribbon is adorable (Shout out...Thanks Cerin for sharing this cute ribbon with me! I LOVE crops because if you don't have something, one of your friends probably does!) Then I added a thin piece of brown ribbon on top.
We had 2 Christmas cards this year. One I made online and another one that my mom had made of my Little Pickle at a photo studio. I wanted to be able to put both of them on the page, so...
I cut a piece of card stock to fit and folded it in half. I glued the Pickle's card inside, and our family card to the outside. I also added a band of the matching "ruffled" ribbon and brown ribbon.



































I also added a little bling to the middle of each poinsettia! If you haven't scrapped your Christmas pictures yet, I hope you were inspired to get them out and onto paper! Thanks for stoppin' by! Happy scrappin' wishes to you!
