Scrapbook Circle's Note to Self

To be totally honest, I am not a huge fan of Christmas collections. GASP. I know, I know, bah humbug, right? But the truth is I don't get very many AMAZING Christmas photos. I try and do better each year, but the lighting is always horrible and they always turn out just so-so. So when I heard Scrapbook Circle was going to be offering an everyday, not holiday focused December kit I was ecstatic. When I saw the Note to Self kit, I was thrilled (it is amazing). When I got to work with the kit, I had a blast. SO versatile!

So I ended up with layouts that make me happy rather than layouts I feel obligated to make just because it is the holidays. For example, this moment happened the other day and it was one I had on my mind since it occurred. Not a holiday moment, just an everyday one that I never want to forget:
Everything here including the corrugated cardboard is from the Note to Self kit (except the cardstock and twine from my stash). The diversity of patterns in this kit make it perfect for a number of themes. For this layout I stuck with the boyish patterns, but there are plenty of florals for girlier pages too. So for the holidays this year, why not buy yourself a kit you will LOVE to scrap with, rather than papers you feel obligated to use just because it is December!
Have a great weekend!

  5. Oh I love your layout!

    I am totally in the same boat about Christmas pictures! I have like five assignments that I need to do but I have zip, zero, zilch decent Christmasy photos! I'm about to find one off of iStock photo or something to scrap and just say it's mine :)

  6. I love, love, love your layout!!!!! The design is great and your photo is stunning!!

    I feel the same way about themed Xmas kits. I like creating stuff with them but trying to get good photos during the holidays are a pain, I'd rather be enjoying the moments!!! LOL.

    Have a great day!
