These are brand new pages created for this try out. I have been putting off doing my Hannukah pages as there is no paper any place that seemed suitable, so I tackled that problem on my own.
I had saved a postcard from the first ever public Menorrah lighting and wanted it on my pages. The colors were bright and primary on a black back ground. I started with my Cricut and Gypsy and took a image from STAND AND SALUTE and deleted some of the interior cuts. I then welded Menorrahs (JOYS OF THE SEASON) all around the circle (the top one being the largest)...I choose to cut it from a blue sparkle paper to simulate the shining lights. To bring the design to life, I choose a circle design from PAPER LACE and deleted some of the interior lines that I would be covering anyway, choosing a traditional blue paper from Close to my Heart, and cut it at 10. Once again I cut the exact size circle to place under the blue as a mat, chosing a yellow as traditional Hannukah is blue and yellow. The title was cut from DESIGNER CALENDAR in Spring green to match the palette from the opposite postcard.
The opposing page is centered around the postcard and I framed that in teal. I took my pictures and matted each in another featured color from the card, a did some color blocking to make everything fit in well. I took a scallop image from FANCY FRAMES and made a frame by placing a smaller image into a larger( 10 and 8.5), and cutting that from yellow. I placed that under the postcard so my photos would have a bit of a scallop border just peeking out.
I had really busy pages and left no room for my journaling which was very important to this page as I added some history to explain the holiday. So after typing it all in word, I converted it to a bold font, made it as small as possible and printed it out in 3 of the softer colors that I used on the page. I alternated the strips and cut them very thin to fit the remainder of the blank space.
Lastly, the original cut from STAND AND SALUTE had 3 stars and as it was the sparkle paper, placed the 3 on my second page to co ordinate the color.
The background paper is called BUTTER CREAM SUEDE and is a Provo Craft paper.
