New Christmas Collection & Holiday Cards

Well, it's that wonderful time of year again!  I hope all of you in the US had a great Thanksgiving and lots of fun shopping yesterday. I wish I could have been there.

I feel like I was skidding into home base with this one. I truly wanted it to be finished this week and even Angie over at Scrap Girls was helping me in between baking at her house. What a literal "Sweetie Pie" ;)   OK on to the new stuff.....

The inspiration for this kit started (as usual) with one photo. This time it came from this photo from Something... She has some gorgeous food ideas for the holidays. I could only dream of making something as gorgeous as this. My original ideas was to go more toward a baking theme, but before I knew it, I had more stuff than I could use, maybe I could work on that next.

A Christmas to Remember digital Scrapbook Collection is a traditional holiday collection, perfect for the scrapping those precious Christmas moments to remember year after year. Great for making holiday layouts, cards and crafts.

Included in the Collection:

Lots of fun embellishments are included in this kit. The vintage reindeer are my favorite.
I think a little over 60 elements are in this part of the collection.

The papers have an overall creased themed effect. I love the idea of using brown paper for wrapping and such. It makes for a fun background for your scrapbooks and crafts.

There are actually 2 alpha sets in this collection, plus the word art. This part is only available with the collection.

I also had a set of 3 Printable 5x7 Christmas Photo Cards, ready to add your family photos. Here is what they look like finished & ready to be put in the mail or sent out as E Cards.

And finally set of 3 Wood Papers.(I started these first as I was really drawn to it in the inspiration photo.

I really had fun with these little gift boxes. I decided not to go crazy with bows so you could layer them, stamp them or journal on them & even add a bow if you like. I included a few little accents in the set to use at your discretion.  The simple ones like the brown paper packages could be used for anything, birthdays, anniversaries, weddings etc...

So with all of this I was able to bundle it into a Christmas to Remember Value Pack, which pretty much gets you one of the add-ons for free. 

Do you do an advent calendar? This one is of course digital, but it is a fun way to remember the little gifts you got that year and save it in your scrapbook.

You'll see in a few of these layouts some fun lighting effects. This add a little bit of holiday sparkle to your layouts. I have 2 sets of overlays that help achieve this effect. ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Lighting Effects and ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Lighting Effects 2 Biggie.

I great way to remember your holidays is to tell the stories of little things that happened. This layout is a story about Lilly flipping excited over one of the smallest things...Disney Band aids!

If you like this collection, you will probably like Cottage Christmas as well. It's one of my favorites.

Well, that is it for today my friends...have a fabulous weekend!
