Depending when you open this post……22 days till Christmas! My little Gingerbread count down is clicking those days in a fast hurry – or at least it seems like time is speeding up to me. I am looking forward to Christmas celebrations and time with family this year…..enjoy the moments!
November scrapbooking we created Christmas pages! I am especially in love with the Smitten Mittens Bundle…..just something about those CUTE little mittens!
These were simple pages, but love the simple look and ability to journal or add lots of pictures. Notice the left page on the green piece of DSP (Be Merry DSP #144111) we used the Cable Knit embossing folder #143537 for added look of warm mittens.
We even added it to one of the mini mittens!
Add here is a really cute idea for those little girls in your life…..make a mini note pad and bind it with a ring. The little girls will have fun making mitten pages from index cards. You can die cut 3 at one time if they are the thinner index cards.
Our second scrapbook spread used the Christmas Quilt Bundle. Funny thing though, you can use both the Smitten Mitten Bundle and Christmas Quilt Bundle for other times of the year….like for baby showers or just quilted cards.
