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:
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!
