Twelve Days of Christmas: Day 11

Yay, a 2-page example from Chrissy, based on a 2-page sketch!
Project 2 of 2.
Sketch 123

Chrissy's Tips:  Who doesn't love 2 page layouts and banners?!  I loved sketch 123 from the moment I saw it and knew it would be perfect for my "cookie making" pictures.  What I love about the placement of the banner on this sketch is that it leaves you enough room to create a large banner title or a small banner title.  I needed a large banner title since I wanted to spell out "cookies" and I love how it didn't take over the layout.  (see image #2)  Plus, it's easy to create your own banners.  I cut 1x2 rectangles from patterned paper and then stacked them on top of each other.  I cut a triangle at the bottom of each to create my banner.  Last, I placed them on white cardstock to make them stand out and cut around the red patterned paper.  Also, to add dimension to my page I added pop dots under the tree and present embellishments.  (see images #1 and #3)
