MCT 5 Days of Christmas - Day 5

Hello, and welcome to our "5" Days of Christmas!  This week we will be sharing lots of Christmas ideas, such as cards, layouts, home decor, 3D items, and whatever else comes to mind that will let YOU get your juices flowing for the holiday!  There will be a giveaway each day, and the winner will be announced the following day!  You will see the different prizes each day on Emma's blog HERE!  I hope we all inspire you this week!

Okay, I'm finishing off this week with a BIG project!  I decided to fill up each section of this 7 Gypsies Printers Tray with My Creative Time products.  It really was a blast to do!  I started by measuring each little section so I would know what size to cut my background paper.  For future reference, I put together a measurement guide that I will share with you at the end of this post.  All of the patterned papers I used are from Echo Park's Reflection Christmas, except for the light blue in the snow scenes which is from Echo Park's Winter Wishes.  There's an awful lot going on here, so I'm just going to let you know which products I used underneath each photo.
