Welcome to the Creative Christmas Blog Hop! We hope you’ll enjoy a day of festive fun and inspiration as the Scrapbook Bundles designers showcase the products available in the Creative Christmas 2015 Bundle. Click through all the blogs before 11:59 EST and be sure to leave a comment on each and every one, because at the end of the hop ONE lucky “hopper” will win a complete bundle before you can even buy it! So grab a drink, flex your mouse-clickers, and relax. We’re going to bring you your most creative Christmas yet!

For my project, I took inspiration from three of the products in the Creative Christmas Bundle: Beth’s Christmas Scor class, Connie’s North Pole Breakfast printables, and Alison’s Your Christmas Story layout sketches.

I started by printing out some of the elements from Connie’s North Pole Breakfast pack and choosing a sketch.  I love that the printables are so versatile and can be used to create party decorations and then to scrapbook the photos later!

Next, I cut out and punched some of the circular shapes to use with the embellishments I would make using Beth’s class.

Then got busy scoring, first for a rosette,

and next for a three-dimensional star.

Chose my photos and assembled the layout quickly using Alison’s sketch. So easy! Oh, and the little Christmas tree is from Beth’s class too!

I love the finished layout! It documents my yearly tradition of locking myself up in the bedroom with a pile of goodies and wrapping presents till my fingers get numb.

I hope this project has inspired you. Before I send you along your way on the hop, I’ve got a gift for you! I’ve put together a pack of two free planner pages for you to download to use right away. The first can be used to track all the holiday television shows and movies that you just can’t miss. This page is also available in my Christmas planner product in the Creative Christmas Bundle. The second page is not. It’s a thank-you note tracker, and it’s a blog exclusive. It’s also completely compatible with the Christmas planner. Both pages are yours free when you sign up for my email list. Just click here and you’re on your merry way to your free download.

Be sure to come back here to continue the hop. And don’t forget to leave a comment for your chance to win a complete Creative Christmas Bundle before you can even buy it!

    Love the rosette and 3-D star! What a beautiful page– and I also lock myself in my room to wrap presents sometime the week before Christmas. I usually end up watching White Christmas or Sleepless in Seattle while I wrap.

    Thank you so much for sharing this tutorial ! Great designs!

  13. I love that you document your wrapping. That is something I always forget to do. Usually by the time I’m wrapping, I’m too tired to take pictures.

    • Now there is some truth! To be honest, I think this was the first time I took photos of the process, and it was because I hadn’t taken any yet for my December Daily.

  14. Jenny McGee on November 24, 2015 at 5:46 pm said:

    Beautiful page, I do that too, lock myself in the bedroom and wrap, wrap, and wrap. Fun tradition. Thanks for a fun blog hop.

    • It is a fun tradition. Crank the holiday tunes or turn on a Christmas movie (Elf for me), and go to town. Just one of the little things that puts me in the Christmas spirit. 🙂

    Thank you, Lisa, for sharing great layouts, ideas, and freebies! The holiday season is so quickly upon me this year I haven’t even begun to think of the holiday shows!

    • It has gone quickly this year! I hadn’t thought of it either, until the other day I was in the kitchen and heard The Grinch on television. I know I always have a few must-see shows, so I thought it would be a useful planner page. 🙂

  27. So many ideas so little time. Awesome bundles!

    • I know what you mean. The whole idea behind the bundle is to help save you some time so you can fit as many of those crafty ideas into the season as possible.

    What a fun page! like your use of 3 d elements in the Lo.

    • Those really make it fun. I started with just one star, then thought, well, I made 3…love how just throwing those last two on there made all the difference. Thanks for hopping with me today!

  31. Love, love LOVE the star!

  45. Susan Best on November 25, 2015 at 5:40 pm said:

    My sweetheart locks himself in the bedroom to wrap presents too! I have never learned how to “score” paper looks like it is time to stretch myself and give this a go…your scrapbook page is very inviting too.

  46. Wow!!! I just love the 3D stars, super cute. Thanks for sharing this project with us, you definitely inspired me to make a few this season. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to win the Christmas Bundle.
