Christmas Memory Tray

I always love playing with this type of decoration, trying to tie in different ideas in all the different slots of the memory tray.  In the last few weeks I have put together a couple different ones with different themes and while I will show them all to you eventually, I thought I would share the Christmas themed one first.

The wooden tray is 12" x 12" and while this one happens to be white, I also have some black ones to play with :)  I started by choosing one of the designer series paper packs that Stampin' Up! has available in a Christmas theme and the one I chose is called This Christmas specialty paper. 

Next, I picked the stamp sets - Wonder of Christmas and Star of Light...

I definitely had a good time playing with embellishments on this project, some retired and some current, but all of them are Stampin' Up! products.

Although Crumb Cake is not a color in the This Christmas specialty paper collection, I decided to add that to my color scheme.

For the ink colors, I stayed with the same ones as in the paper - Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black and Garden Green except for coloring in the angel where I added a few other colors.

My favorite pattern of the paper collection is the music sheets, I have always been drawn to that and decided to highlight it a couple of different ways - with some Fabulous Foil designer acetate over the top in one slot and as a large background in another.

If you happen to be able to go to the Fall Scrapbooking retreat at Park River Bible Camp in November, this is a project that I am teaching a class on and you will have a few different themes to choose from :)
