I'm sort of back

Hello everyone.

Here is the 4 page layout that I had been working on. I just finished it on Sunday, but had not had a chance to take pictures of it. This layout has been the layout from heck. It has 13 elves but not all 13 fit on the 4 pages.
I bought the patterns to the elves 1 year ago. I had to print them, cut them and then trace then on the color card stock I wanted. So that means I cut them twice each (26 total). But I enjoy cutting them by hand. Even though I am looking into the program that will cut them and the machine that will be best for the program. If anyone that reads my blog knows which machine and program is best please email me the info. I would really appreciate it.

Here is the layout:

 I missed the buckle, but the bottom pictures show it.

 I tried to make the box the elves are holding seem like a bin you store your ornaments in. I hope you all can see the same thing I did when I made it.

Here you can see all 4 pages side by side.

The only thing missing in the layout is the to add the stickles (frosted lace) to the elves hats and Santa's suit. But I ran out. I just ordered some and should be here within a couple of days. 

I hope you all like it and leave a comment. 



These are fantastic, Ana! So cute. I can see all of the hard work you put into them and it sure paid off.

oh my god, those are totally awesome! They turned out freaking unbelievably awesome! Can't wait to see it in real life because in these pictures they are just stunning! xoxo


Hi Ana: Your pages are so fabulous and the elves are well worth the hand cutting you did. I do not have a cutting machine and would not even know which one to pick...I fear that I would pick the one that would be extinct in a very short time. Sometimes actually cutting from scratch makes it more special and not so "cookie cutter". Your little elves would make such adorable ornaments to hang on the tree or garlands or... Hugs dear...


WOW Ana, I can see all the love and care you put into these layouts. They are so super cute. I love the Christmas tree, cause you used my fav new Martha's punch.

Such detail! These are incredible! You do the most amazing work. Don't forget to link up, you know we'd love to show off your work!


This layout is so cute! I can't believe you spend so much time and effort on paper piecing these things. Incredible!! Keep it up!!
