Hello! Today is the start of the Scrap Our Stash Christmas in July Blog Hop. The design team and guest design team members of the Scrap Our Stash Challenge Blog are in a Christmas mood and sharing holiday-related projects. I'm the last stop on our blog hop so if you've come from Stephanie's blog you're in the right place. If you happened to have just stumbled upon this post, be sure to start at the beginning at Scrap Our Stash so you don't miss anything!
My Christmas-inspired project today is a layout about last Christmas up at my in-laws in Montana. When you find yourself in a small town in the middle of nowhere, you have to get creative! My DH and I had the thought to make up massive batches of gingerbread dough for four different pairs of the family to work on their masterpiece gingerbread house. It was a 3-day affair to make all the dough, cut out the pieces, and assemble. My layout features some of the pictures throughout the process, including the Marmon Tower!
I used DCWV papers for my main base to my layout. Accents were added with Making Memories cut-outs on chipboard for some dimension and Making Memories felt letters for my title. Click the image to view it blown up. :)
A little about Scrap Our Stash...
