9th day of Christmas

Hello everyone! Agata here with some more inspiration before Christmas!

The older I get, the more I’m nostalgic and realize how important traditions are. My husband’s grand-mother, 96 yrs old, was organizing each year a family gathering for her 6 children and their families. The latter grew and all in all we were something like 40 around the tables. But I said “she was” since she passed away this year. There will be a family gathering this year, too, and we’ll try to keep some of the traditions but will we be able to keep them all?

Fortunately last year I took some pictures of the important “pieces” of this great puzzle. And made a layout about it, using myStamp Box stamps of course! Here it is:

I also used some leftover papers from last year’s collection by My Little Yellow Bicycle. To embellish the upper part of my layout I stamped Winter Flakes with Versamark ink and then added pigment powder to them. This gives a nice shine to images.

I also stamped ornaments from Deck the Halls set on some patterned paper and embossed them with powder with glitter finish. Then I cut them out and adhered them to my layout using dimensional adhesive. All those glittery accents compliment nicely the paper and frame that also are glittery and the letter stickers I used for the title.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and will also remember about the importance of traditions when you gather together this Christmas! Have a merry one!
