In this tutorial, Denise Lush shows us how to make this fun and festive journal page using New Dylusions Christmas Stamps, Stencils, Collage Sheets and Shimmer Sprays.

 

Instructions 

Don't you wish it could be Christmas every day? There's just something magical about that time of year. We may be months away from Christmas but we can create some fun Christmas journal pages with Dyan Reaveley's new release of stamps and collage sheets!

 

Dylusions Hats Off To Christmas Journal Step 1

Step 1: Find a black page in the Classics Journal.

Step 2: Spray Dylusions Shimmer Spray in Balmy Night throught the Dylusions Stencil Ice Queen. Amazing how well the Shimmer Spray shows up on the black card stock.

Step 3: From the stamp set Tree Topper, stamp 5 snowflake hexagons and a total of 4 half hexagons.

From the stamp set Hats Off to Christmas, stamp the head with the christmas tree hat.

From the stamp set Any Old Elf, stamp the tall elf, the hat and the bow.

Cut all the stamped images out.

Step 6: Piece your character together as shown. The tree from the head is being used as a dress with the bow at the top. The star from the tree has been glued to the pom pom at the end of the hat. With the half hexagon and hat placed on top you can't even tell a tree has been removed from the head!

Step 9: Once your images have all been glued down trace your images with a black paint pen and add some doodles. You can also add a thin white border with a white paint pen. 

And you're done! 

Christmas in July it is!

    Denise! So happy to see you on the Ranger blog!! You’re such an inspiration to me (you literally inspired me to do a Tim Holtz folio Dylusions style, which I haven’t finished yet) I love this journal page. You’re so creative – I love it!!

    You’re the best and love all that you do. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

    I love how you turned the hat into a dress, it’s so cute. I like that you gave her animal friends too. What surprised me the most was how much I liked that the stamped images weren’t colored or painted. Now I have to rethink my previous decision not to buy any of the Dylusions Christmas items. That dress is just too cute. You did your job and made me a believer.
