Hello SCT friends! Welcome to Day 7 of our 12 Days of Holiday Giving! We have a great layout to share from Creative Team member Lisa Dickinson and under the SCT tree, we have another fabulous prize package for you! Ready to see what we have in store for you today? Let’s get started…

 “On the 7th day of SCT’s 12 Days of Holiday Giving, SCT shared with me….a beautiful layout from designer Lisa Dickinson along with a  prize package from our friends at Photo Play Paper and Pink & Main!”

“Hello! Lisa here with you today! Even though red and green are the traditional Christmas colors, I always struggle to design layouts using that color scheme. I usually start my design process with the photos, and select products that coordinate well with them, and quite often the red and green palette just doesn’t work. But that doesn’t mean a page can’t look Christmas-y! There are so many great product lines that incorporate fresh new colors into holiday papers, and one of my favorites is Elle’s Studio!


supplies:  patterned paper, tags, die-cuts, acrylic: Elle’s Studio; vellum: Bazzill Basics; date stamp: Project Life; circle cutter: Creative Memories; star gems: Martha Stewart; font: Bohemian Typewriter.

This photo of my daughter and niece in front of the Christmas tree was light and bright, and the pastel colors (with a touch of red!) were perfect to make it the star of the page.


A large 6×4 card was a quick and easy way to create a title. I just added a few lines of stitching below the text to attach it to the page.


Small tags and banners layered together bring pattern and color to the page. I also added circular clusters of embellishments to help soften all the straight lines in the design.


So don’t feel limited to the classic Christmas color scheme for your holiday pages. There’s a wonderful world of color out there to explore!

Happy Holidays to all!” ~ Lisa
