Winner & Black with Two LO


First of all the winner of my 111 giveaway is Cazzy.  Congratulations!  Thank you so much to those who left comments  :)  and Cazzy, could you email your address to me (email address on the sidebar) and I'll get your parcel off to you asap.

And here is my layout for this months Black With Two challenge.  The theme is dominant black with silver, red and Christmas.  I used a Christmas photo but nothing else... no trees, no Merry Christmas, no Santa!  I needed to do something that wasn't too Christmassy!  I've been doing Advent projects for what feels like ages - I needed a break from Christmas crafting!

I flicked around some silver paint on my black background...

I was sharpening my Martha Stewart punch (bizarrely it will punch perfectly on foil but struggles greatly on paper!  Any tips?) and it struck me that the foil birds would look great on a page...
red glitter photo corner...

I know I'm not the only one...  I saw these shaped paper clips and had to buy them but I think this is the first time I've used one!

The black waffle-like paper is some recycle 'chocolate protector'!  It was on top of the chocolates inside the box.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. What a lovely LO this is, it has all the right Christmas elements to it! Thanks for your sweet comment to my blog, take care, Ira x

  2. great use of colours - love that you have used only tiny hints of the red-it makes them POP

  3. Thank you so much for picking me! I am on a roll, this is the third thing I have won recently!

    I have emailed you.

    I love your foil birds, I must look out for that punch! That is such a sweet photo and love the layout.

  4. Fabulous layout, proving that you don't have to go for bright primary colours to scrap photos of children and that Christmassy embellishments are not even essential for your festive layouts. Congratulations to Cazzy. Elizabeth x

  5. Gorgeous Layout and great techniques, loved that you used the chocolate wrapping, I love recycling stuff and the silver birds look amazing. No tips on those punches unfortunately.
