Group Photo

 Group Photo - Today's post is about the page that I designed for my crop group. This group of ladies have met together every Wednesday for more that 10 years to craft together. I feel very privilaged to have such a caring and talented group of friends.

For Christmas, we have a little party and take a group photo. This year I designed the page for that photo. Our party activity is to make the page for that special photo.

Unfortunitly, it did not photo graph to well. The lights bleached out the colors a lot. In real life the colors are rich with a lot of depth to them.

My base paper is Creative Imaginations. I topped it with a piece of red cardstock, then added 6 snowflakes that were cut with my Cricut and the Basic Cake cartridge. I added clear gemstones to the center of each snowflake.

I used a petaloo flower and cut silver vellum with a CL holly die. The red glittery wire was wrapped around a thin stick Skewer.

For the poinsettia spray, I used the CL holly vine again. The poinsettias were cut with a SB die, then inked with Peeled Paint distress inks. I shaped and stacked them. The centers were made with a kiwi, Viva Decor pearl pens.

I added a couple more of the sparkly wires here, as well.

I finished off the page with a line of gemstone trim and the year cut from my Cricut using the Elegant Cake font. I added a few gemstones to add more bling.
