A Christmas Bauble and 2 Layouts
By Kim Price

My goodness, Christmas is now only a few days away - where did the year go? I have to admit I am probably at my most disorganised this year but I did manage to get some creative time in with the season in mind. 

My first project to share this month is a very festive Christmas Tree bauble, Green Tara style! This truly is one of those WOW items - it has amazing impact with all those gorgeous White Green Tara flowers and it was so very simple and fast to create. All you need are a bundle of Green Tara flowers and trim, a styrofoam ball and some strong adhesive! It really is that easy. 

Green Tara products used:

Satin Rat Tail Cord Mushroom - RB1204Mr
Herringbone Ribbon Red - RB405R
Stars On Wire Silver - RBY18S
Flower Edge Organza White - RB221Wh
Gardenias White - FDV054Wh
Apple Blossoms White - FDV044Wh
Cherry Blossoms White - FLC22Wh
Roses 2cm White - FDR009Wh

This layout was created using a photograph of my daughter as the "mirror" on this chipboard dresser along with a variety of Green Tara flowers, leaves and lace. I wanted to create something a little different to the usual scrapbooking page and I think it works well to showcase the beauty of the Green Tara products perfectly. I really like the overall triangular design. 

This photo showcases these really pretty pale blue hydrangeas - and I have added small turquoise coloured roses to the centres for that finishing touch. I have also included a spray of little white flowers and some smoke coloured crystals, not forgetting that gorgeous little silver heart to the left.

Some calla lilies and a white cherry blossom along with a white sakura bloom and a cluster of rosebuds.

Beneath both of the flower clusters I have used some gorgeous white Green Tara lace for a little extra texture and interest. 

Here is the products list used in the above project:

3cm White Lace - L2853W
Calla Lilies Ivory With Brown Stamen - FDV051Iv/B10 
Fern Green 7cm - LA22Gr
Cherry Blossoms White - FLC22Wh
3 Layer Gardenia Red - FDV054R
Pale Blue Hydrangeas - FLT18PB
Sakura Silk & Pearl Flower White - XF9221Wh

3cm Rose Red - FDR024R

Mini Rosebud Turquoise - FDV025Tu
Mini Rosebud White - FDV025Wh
1.5cm Flower White - FDVW
Silver Diamante Heart Trim - RBY19

And lastly I have a layout created in a more classic style, using Green Tara lace as part of my background adding gorgeous vintage style texture. I created this layout using a photograph of my wedding dress along with my great great grandmother's cameo brooch (it was accidentally dropped in the street and run over by a horse drawn cart and still has the original crack in it!) which has been handed down to me and I wore it on my wedding day, my grandmothers wedding and engagement rings and my mother's wedding and engagement rings.

I've used some new Green Tara flowers including a Christmas Vine, a 6.5cm Heirloom
 Silk and Organza flower and a Wild Rose.
