The layout I’m sharing today features the following products: Brilliant Baubles Stamp Set and coordinating Dies, and Layered Snowflakes Die.

I went with a light and “snowy” page with pops of bright, traditional Christmas colors.

I started by stamping the baubles using a mix of Crisp Dye Inks in green and red tones. The variety of size and shapes in this set makes it a must have. I love the different options and possibilities, especially when it comes to having fun with color combinations.

Next, I created a circular design with the layered snowflakes. I die cut many of them from smooth white cardstock, and covered some with Nuvo Glimmer Paste in Moonstone color for added shine.

After placing the photo in the middle of the wreath, I adhered the baubles on both sides of it to create a frame. Foam dots were used here to bring in more dimension. I then stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment, which also comes in the Brilliant Baubles Set, on white cardstock; I matted it with black cardstock and arranged it on top of the photo. As a finishing touch, I added lots of soft pink enamel dots in the center of the snowflakes.

  7. I love the Brilliant Baubles set, your designs with them are awesome. The Layering Snowflakes are very cool, I don’t think I would have thought about making a wreath with them, yours is gorgeous with just the right amount of sparkle. It is a beautiful and cheerful layout, thanks for sharing and the inspiration I can’t wait to try a wreath. (


  8. What a beautiful page!! Love the colours of the ornaments! That set is amazing and the possibilities are endless with all the different layers. One of my favourites from the release! I love the the white snowflakes on white background. It gives dimension and texture without distracting from the ornaments and photo. The pink enamel dots in the center of the snowflakes are a perfect finishing touch and ties it all together
