Hi all! I have a bunch of fun layouts to share with you that all have to do with Christmas. I just love the Jolly Good Collection by Chickaniddy Crafts for scrapbooking Christmas pages. Can you even believe it is almost Christmas??? Seriously, crazy! Ok, so first, Chickaniddy is giving away FREE Christmas Card Templates that look like this. You can download them free here.Which one do you think looks better for our card this Christmas??
Onto my pages. My first page.One of my most favorite things about the Jolly Good collection is the colors. I just love that in addition to traditional colors of red, green, and white, this collection includes a soft blue, pink, orange, and grey. Here is the layout I created with the softer tones. Layout inspired Paige Evans. I cut out a large snowflake and then filled it with triangles. I had already cut out three sizes to my triangles. I stitched on my page, embellished and I was done!

For my next page, I designed my page all around a star from the Die Cuts Tags in the Jolly Good Collection of Chickaniddy Crafts! As you can see I used lots of patterned papers to lead your eyes right to that shining star! Want to hear something cool: I have turned this into a cut file and the talented Meghann Andrew (on the Chickaniddy Crafts blog) will be sharing her page and a link to the die cut file in December!
After I created my design it was all about accenting, but not accenting too much. I saw this idea in an old CK magazine where they layered the circles of the same pattern over a patterned paper. I decided to add this to my page!

On my next page, I had fun manipulating text around a circle in Photoshop Elements. HINT: You can do this without that program. Simply print off different sized sentences on white cardstock and place as rays around a circle. I think this is a neat way to tell the story, almost like a clock.

My last page was inspired simply from a wrapped package. I just love the way packages look under the tree, so I mimicked that look with some banners strips to look like ribbon. So basically the box has a green top, a white (with a little pattern) bottom and some pretty ribbon. The patterned paper outside of that white patterned paper pulls it all together.
