Believe in Santa Layout

Jingle bells add the perfect finishing touch to my Holiday layout so I created some mini faux bells with Round Metallic Gold Dew Drops.  Let me show you how.
Robin's Nest Supplies: Red Snowflake Cardstock, Red Rope Glitter Cardstock, Metallic Gold Dew Drops, Belgian Chocolate Boy Rub-on, Red Glitter Alpha Stickers, Glitter Holiday Word Titles, Dew Dew Glue

Other Supplies: Jingle Bell Rubber Stamp (Anita's), Gold Embossing Powder (Stampendous), VersaMark Ink Pad (Tsukineko), Heat Gun (Ranger), StazOn White Ink Pad (Tsukineko), White Gelly Roll Pen (Sakura), red / black / green / white cardstock, ribbon, permanent black marker, four photos

Directions:
1. Adhere a strip of red cardstock over Snowflake Cardstock covering the bottom two rows.

2. Stamp six jingle bell images onto black cardstock using VersaMark Ink and heat emboss with gold powder. Carefully fussy cut them out and tie six mini bows with 1/8" ribbon. Place them in a row at the top of the red cardstock and attach the bells as if they are hanging.

3. Select four photos. Matte the main photo with green cardstock and attach a 1" wide ribbon along the lower edge of the photo. Apply the sentiment from the Belgian Chocolate Boy Rub On Set directly to the photo.

4. Next, create a frosty edge by applying white permanent ink unevenly to the edge of another photo using a sponge applicator. Use a gentle tapping motion to make a hazy looking edge and then set aside to dry.

5. Embellish the final two photos with faux mini jingle bells. Use a black permanent marker to draw the opening slits at the bottom of the bell. Attach three Metallic Gold Dew Drops as faux jingle bells vertically along the edge.

6. Cut the title "Santa" from Glitter Word Holiday Titles. Matte it with red cardstock and trim away a triangular end making a banner style title. To help the word stand out, trace around each letter with a white gel pen. Add the word "in" with mini alphabet stickers. Adhere Red Glitter Alpha Stickers to spell the word "Believe" onto white cardstock and finish off by trimming away a triangular end and matting with green cardstock. Adhere the finished title.
