Well, it is almost time to start getting into the Christmas Spirit. Here are some Christmas Scrapbooking Ideas that you can use to get going with this year’s Festive Scrapbooking Layouts.
The colours that we think of at Christmas time are mainly red, green and gold, so make sure to include these in your Christmas scrapbooking layouts.
Great materials to use for your Christmas Scrapbooking are felt and velvet.
If you use these materials with the Christmas colours, it will add a richness and opulence to your scrapbooking layouts.
Christmas Scrapbooking Ideas Using Felt and Velvet
Making a snowman as one of your Christmas Scrapbooking embellishments is so simple.
All you need to do is cut two or three white circles in felt and then join one on top of the other and decorate with a red velvet scarf, orange felt carrot nose, black felt buttons and eyes and a hat made from either felt or velvet.
A Christmas Tree embellishment is great fun to make, and you can get the kids involved.
Cut out your basic Christmas tree shape in green felt, and then go mad decorating it in scraps of felt or velvet, or even things like glitter glue, sequins, beads or buttons.
Round Christmas Decorations
These are also great fun to decorate for the next family project. Cut out your balloon shaped bases in various colours of felt and decorate as you like to make them look like decorations that you would hang on your Christmas tree. This is another project that the entire family can get involved in.
Gifts cut out in box shapes with your felt, and then decorated with velvet ribbon are effective embellishments to use with your Christmas Tree.
Velvet bows make very pretty Christmas Scrapbooking Embellishments. You can make miniature bows in velvet ribbon, or bigger bows that can be used to decorate your velvet and felt presents.
First, find a simple template that you can trace, then all you do is add his white beard with either white felt or cotton wool, black belt and his face, which can also be cut out of light pink felt.
A small pom-pom at the end of his hat is also a nice touch. Use a gel pen to draw in some facial features.

Holly and Ivy
This traditional Christmas foliage can also be cut out easily with velvet and lines and other details can be drawn in with a gel pen.
Velvet Ribbon Borders
Velvet ribbon is available in many different thicknesses, and can be used to make borders for your scrapbooking layout, or even to frame individual items on your layout to give your layout that special festive feeling.
Journaling and Headings
A heading for your Christmas layout will look great cut out in felt and decorated with velvet ribbon. A thin ribbon wrapped around a felt letter looks stunning.
So as you can see from the above suggestions, with a little imagination you can’t go wrong making your own Christmas Scrapbooking embellishments in felt or velvet.
