'Tisn't the season (but that's okay)

Christmas in July anyone? The gals at Black River Designs decided to do a holiday theme for our layouts this month. It's always good to think ahead, or in my case, get caught up! I was so happy to finally scrap these photos from last Christmas. And so many BRD papers fit perfectly. This one was fun to do.



materials: patterned papers (Black River Designs: Old stripes from Old Black River Road line, Wild Vines and Jumbo Dots from Kelly's Garden line) + buttons and brads (The Paper Studio) + circle punch (EK Success) + digital shaped text templates (Pattie Knox for designerdigital.com) + 3D-dots (EK Success)

I may do a creative journal on how this layout came together later. Depends on if it gets picked up for pub or not...we'll see. =)

This one is much more simple. I wanted it to be all about the quote and journaling. Last year we really caught that Christmas feeling because we lit candles and read inspirational stories and verses every night. Definitely doing that every year!


materials: patterned papers (Black River Designs: Old stripes, Old Spiral Daisies, Old Dots, and Old Green Pincushion Flower from Old Black River Road line; Garden Gate Rainbow from Bayview Road line) + letter stickers and thickers (American Crafts) + brads (The Paper Studio) + 3D-dots (EK Success)


Check back next week and I'll post a little tutorial on how I made those barn stars. Fun! Hope you enjoyed these and that they inspire you to scrap some holiday photos.
