·                Align two 12 x 12 inch pieces of beige cardstock and adhere to create your base
·                Cut one piece of C90 002 to measure 11.5 x 11.5 inches; and another to measure 7 x 11.5 inches – both snowman side up. Chalk with charcoal and distress.  Adhere the larger piece to the right of your base LO and align the smaller piece on the left; adhere with Tombow
·                Cut one piece of C90 006 to measure 11 x 10 inches and another to measure 6.5 x 10 inches; both should be music sheet side up.  Chalk with charcoal, distress the edges, mat onto red and then adhere them to the base you have started creating
·                Cut two strips from C90 008 to measure 12 x 3 inches (checkered side up); cut just one end into a pennant, chalk with charcoal and distress the edges
·                Cut two strips from C90 003 to measure 12 x 2.5 inches and do the same as with the above strips; centre and adhere to the above strips
·                Adhere these to the bottom portion of your LO, approximately 1.5 inches from the bottom
·                Fussy cut the large Santa, three wreaths and three additional bows from C90 007.  Chalk all the edges
·                Adhere the three wreaths to the front of your photographs to create a ‘frame’ with the wreath; overlay the additional fussy cut bows over the existing bows, using foam dots.  Adhere these three to the ‘strip’ portion of your LO using Tombow
·                Adhere the large fussy cut Santa to the far left ‘open’ portion of your LO, as can be seen in the photographs
·                Take three of the circular chippies from DC90 001 and coat them, as well as the title chippie DC90 005, with some crackle paste.  Once the title chippie has dried, coat with Glossy accents.  Once dry, adhere it with Tombow to your LO, just at the large Santa’s feet
·                Once your three large circular chippies are dry, adhere them to the front of your photographs so that they create a frame.  Brush the edges lightly with charcoal ink
·                Arrange your three large frames where you’d like them, mark their location and then use your DS060 stencil and some charcoal ink to create a ‘frame’ around each of your chippie frames.  Use the same stencil and chalk to apply some random smaller objects from the stencil around your Santa
·                Finally, adhere  your large chippie frame photographs to your final LO and add some ribbon, trimming and flower(s) to the top three loops
