Baking gingerbread biscuits

In Sweden it’s a tradition to eat gingerbread biscuits at Christmas. As they are so fun to bake you always try to bake them with your children. This layout is made for the December challenge at Kraft it up!. The challenge is to make a layout (on kraft paper) about a Christmas tradition with a picture that shows the tradition. (The deadline is extended until today!)

The “frame” behind the picture is cut out from a package of embellishments from October Afternoon (recycling!). The "gingerbread biscuits" beneath the picture are brads from EyeLet OutLet. Cute aren’t they? :) Most of the papers used are from Crate’s Christmas collection (Peppermint) that I’m in love with.

These gorgeous flowers are part of a prize I won in a challenge that Chantal Vandenberg was hosting at Do more with less in November. I LOVE them and I have been waiting for the right opportunity to use them… (Hope you think this gave them justice Chantal ;) )

Thank you so much for looking! I think it’s SO FUN when you’re stopping by here and leave comments! It really makes my day!!!

  4. Hey Helene!
    Another FAN FAB U LAS Layout......
    Such a WONDERFUL Design & a GORGEOUS photo of your DD!!!THANKS SO very much for playing along over @ KIU.......... ♥♥

  5. Jättefin layout! Och vilket roliga tema att skapa till. Den runda blomman är jättefin, liksom "polkagrisramen" runt kortet. Och de små pepparkaksgubbarna är ju jättesöta! Passar perfekt på en layout som den här. Är de röd-vita cirklarna utanför kraft pappret med på layouten eller är det någon bakgrund du fotat mot? Det såg coolt ut iaf! :)


  6. Beautiful layout for a darling photo! I love the pink with the kraft. and I agree with you - those 'gingerbread cookies' brads are really cute :)...
