Well, there are only six months until Christmas! Usually that doesn’t bother me all that much. I’m not a homemade gifts person and I don’t make cards either so most of my work for Christmas really happens much closer to the actual date. The rest of you should get crackin’ though!
Christmas is on my mind because while I don’t scrap chronologically anymore, I do tend to work with folders of photos and try to close out months as I go. The December months seem to hang around for a long time! Two years ago, I did a December daily and it is included in that years’ December gallery here. I just finished it recently! I am just not a huge fan of scrapping Christmas – I’m not sure why. Maybe it's that we have set in stone traditions and I feel like I'm scrapping them over and over again?
I challenged myself to scrap a couple Christmas pages and share with you. One way that I was able to get over my reluctant scrapping was to use a template. This way the design was already set and I only needed to dig out photos and write up the story!
Two layouts done and only two more years of photos to scrap! WOOHOO!
For both of these layouts I used this gorgeous kit from the fabulous Gennifer Bursett at Design House Digital. It's called Naughty Christmas and it's chock full of fun papers and word art. I have even used pieces of it on non-Christmas themed pages with ease.
The lovely Gennifer has offered to give one of you this kit to play with. Leave your name and tell me do you have a season or event that you really don’t enjoy scrapbooking? What is it? I'll draw a winner this evening.
::: comments are now closed for the giveaway. thank you! :::
Then I challenge you to get out your supplies and scrap one page – just one! Share it in the gallery and link me up below I’d love to see! Until later tonight...
