Christmas Page Swap

You gotta Believe!!!

OK, I did it. I made it before the dead line. I had some doubts for a while that I could do it, but I did. There are 16 in the swap this time.
You were to make a 6 x 6 page for each member using Tim Holtz products and techniques.

I decided instead of using traditional Reds, Greens, and Golds, that I would go completely Black and White with some Silver and Gray.

Full Page Layout

I stamped the images in black. The snowman is embossed with Distress Powder and the snowflakes are embossed with holographic embossing powder.

Another view of the snowman.

I used different pattern papers on the back of each one. And stamped some invisible angels.
Can you see one?

Another angel is hiding here.

I hope the recipients like them. I had fun creating them. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think...


  1. Ohhhh.... looks AMAZING! Love the angel stamp! You make me want to start doing swaps now!

  2. Absolutely beautiful!! I wish I would have joined that one too!!!

  3. Stephen, they are WONDERFUL! I love the hidden angels... well, the whole page! I, too, wish I'd joined the swap. Oh, well, I am getting my holiday ATC's done & the calendar pages are now in Penci's hand. Phew!
    When you're done cleaning...want to come clean my stash space? :o)

  4. love the angels, I am sure that these will look spectacular in real life - shame the computer doesn't show up the beauty of the holographic snowflakes. Swaps can be stressful - I always doubt myself right up to when I get the swaps back.

  5. These are great Stephen. I did not join in this one as we are way too busy at work now to take on anything extra besides life. I work at the post office so it's really hectic nof the next couple of months. Kathy Eddy

  6. Oh, Stephen, they are wonderful! I love the black and white, and think using unexpected colors for the holidays is such a fresh idea. I had to remove myself from this swap as I was overloaded, and now I am a little sad...well, I knew I would be, but sometimes I just have to say enough!
    Great work, you should be proud.

  7. Your pages are adorable. I really love them. You always do such good work.

  8. wonderful!! really gorgeous! where do you get holographic EP?

  9. Wow!! I love them! So glad I bit the bullet and joined. I'm nearly ready to pack them off, so will make the deadline. I seriously doubt myself also, but love your angels. Kathy

  10. WOW! Totally creative and inspiring...I too sometimes shy away from the traditional red & greens so this just blew me away! Love the hidden angels...


  11. I love the black and white too!
    Now I am really sorry that I couldn't make time for this swap.
