A very special part of our Hanukkah celebration is lighting the menorah. I created a layout showcasing candle-lighting pictures from last Hanukkah. I used the stunning Lost & Found 3 - Oliver collection. The gorgeous blues and golds are absolutely perfect for Hanukkah photos.
Supplies: Lost & Found 3 - Oliver: patterned paper, chipboard elements, enamel dots, decorative buttons, decorative brads.
I created the rays using a mix of the lovely Oliver patterned papers, then I cut out Jewish stars and raised them with pop dots. This popped up shapes technique was inspired by a gorgeous layout by Emily Spahn ('JustEm') that I first saw in the Club CK gallery.
Our Hanukkah celebration wouldn’t be complete without some lively rounds of dreidel. It’s basically a spinning top game where the participants play to win “gelt” (chocolate coins). Because it's never too early to teach our kids how to gamble, right? Kidding. ;-)
As you can see from this layout, when we don’t have enough gelt on hand, we simply substitute Hershey’s kisses. I used the doily stickers to represent the round-and-round spinning motion of the dreidel.
I also got to play with the beautiful My Mind's Eye Winter Wonderland collection. This collection isn’t just for Christmas! I used the papers to make this Hanukkah card.
Supplies: Winter Wonderland: patterned paper and twine, Lost & Found 3 - Oliver: enamel dots and decorative buttons.
