Tis the Season

December is an exciting month, for many reasons!!  Celebrating our Savior's birth, seeing the kids enjoy the decorations, Christmas songs and Christmas shows, parties with friends, get togethers with family...and so much more!!  I used to be overwhelmed with trying to keep up with documenting all of my Christmas photos every year, but I've given myself permission, just to do what I want.  Very liberating!!  I used to dread doing Christmas layouts, but now I look forward to them.  And I was super excited to get our December Kit from Artful Delight!  It's packed full of Christmas goodiness, just waiting to be used for all the photos I'll be taking this month.

So, today I am sharing my first layout with this month's Kit, using our Sketch for December.  You can play along with our Layout and Card Sketch, by heading over to Artful Delight.



 
Everything on this layout, is from the Kit.  I used my Cameo for a lot of cuts on this one...the title, circle background, borders at the top and bottom, journaling tag, and the doily circles.  And I decided to stick pretty close to the sketch on this one.  It worked perfectly for my single photo.

Here is a look at the Scrapbook and Card Kit and the Sketches for this month.  If you would like to pick up either of these Kits, make sure you head over to Artful Delight!

  5. I love this! love that it has beautiful colors and is not just typical red and green, that is why I usually have trouble with x-mas layouts because I don't care for red and green so much...
