Christmas is almost here

Oh my goodness, I don't know about you but there is still so much to do to get ready for Christmas.  I cannot believe we have less than a week to go.  Why do we put some much pressure on ourselves.

Well now is a great time to do some crafting, I find it a great way to relax or de-stress.  I must have been having too much fun crafting this time with the ScrapPacks as I did more layouts than would fit in the newsletter, so here is the extra layout that I created.

On this layout I used the Christmas ScrapPack from Better Scrapbooking - available from the online shop (click here to order yours).

 I used the Authentique Joyous collection Decorate pattern paper for the background then added some Bazzill Celery cardstock and a strip of Authentique Joyous collection Intent pattern paper across the page. I also double matted my to photo as the family along the bottom were listening to her classical guitar playing - one of our family traditions at Christmas.  There were no die-cut titles about listening to guitar music so instead I used the Sleigh Bells Ring, are you Listening? die-cut for a bit of fun.

The big vacant area in the top left corner is so you can either add some journaling or a larger title that you have cut out using your own die-cut machines.

Well I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and an even better 2014.
I am looking forward to sharing lots more ideas and tips next year.
So until then, everyone have a safe and happy holiday, wherever you are
