Hello and welcome to our little Christmas in July blog hop! If you’re following along, you’ve just come from Jen’s blog. If you’re just dropping in, you can catch the beginning of the hop at Ruth’s blog. In either case, I’ve got lots to show you, so stick around!
Like most people, I take tons of photos in December, especially on Christmas Day. Now that my sons are older, I don’t feel as overwhelming a need to scrapbook every. single. one. Still, even paring down leaves me with a dozen or more photos to work with.
I had tons of BoBunny Blitzen papers and embellishments left over from a class I taught last year, so I employed it in creating these layouts:
I found that I still had tons of Christmas morning photos even after I made these layouts, so I switched to pocket pages to store and display the rest of them. I recently bought several sheets of cream-colored notebook paper at Hobby Lobby, and I immediately came home and sliced them all up into 4×6 and 6×4 blocks for creating journaling blocks for just such pages. A few embellishments and some handwriting, and voila!
I hope I’ve given you some inspiration for getting lots of Christmas photos scrapped, as well as using up any older Christmas stash you might have lying around. And to help get you into the Christmas mood, I’m giving away a couple of little stocking stuffers from my Etsy shop
: A yard each of Maraschino and Peapod baker’s twine, and a foot each of red polka dot and green gingham ribbon tape. To win them, simply become a follower of my blog. If you are already following, just leave a comment letting me know, and you’ll be entered
to win too!
