This is a 6 3/4 by 5 inch card made with Jolly Holidays (for the animals) and Give a Hoot (for the tree and garland). The fox was cut about 2 1/4 " and the raccon and squirrel were cut at about 1 1/2 ". The tree is from pg. 65 of Give a Hoot, cut at about 5 " The garland is the border feature from pg. 32. I also used the garland to accent the sentiment inside. The verse is a stamp from Stampin' Up. The background paper is from the Outdoor Pack made by American Traditional Designs. The paper for the tree was from Scrap in a Snap. Have a great day, and thanks for looking!

Here are more layouts from my mother's heritage album. The first page tells of my grandfather's early life and his coming to the United States. The second page shows his two wives. The large picture is the wedding picture of my grandparents. If you lift the flap there is journaling inside telling the circumstances surrounding his marriages.
The following are layouts from my mother's early childhood.
The above photo is a close up of a photo that was printed on transparency film then mounted on heritage paper of handwriting. I really like the look of this and tend to use it a lot. Thanks for looking.

I then cut out the shadow of the frame the same size as first layer (from Heritage, pg. 33, shift) from glossy paper. I then cut it again, slightly larger, from contrasting glossy paper to use as the actual shadow. The layers were adhered together.
The actual cards were made from DCWV 2009 Christmas Glitter Pack made at 4 x5 1/4inches. A blue or green contrasting piece of glossy paper was cut at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches and cut along the right outside edge with a decorative scissor. This was attached inside the front of the card. The finishing touch is a piece of ribbon tied to the loop at the top. Thanks for looking!
