Christmas Past Scrapbooking Sampler

Here’s a project that will help you kick-start your Christmas decorating.  This sampler made with our beautiful Christmas Past Collection and Gold Shimmer Cardstock evokes the warm cosy feeling.

You can use the sampler with an easel on your mantle as I did, or it would also be great on your old Creative Memories Everyday Display.  After the holidays are over, use the sampler as a title page for your annual Christmas album or cut it apart into three vertical panels to use as borders on scrapbook pages.

Virtual Christmas Crop: Challenge 4-Colour

Welcome back!

How are your projects coming along?  Did you make time for a chocolate break?  If so, that means you have energy and are ready to keep going!

Colour palettes are always so fabulous to use when creating a layout.

Sometimes it means that I work within one paper collection, and other times it means that I pull pieces from several paper collections.

But, how do you know where to start?

With Christmas right around the corner, this combination jumped out at me, with the traditional colours.
