Christmas Layouts

Good morning! I hope you’re having a fantastic week. I thought I’d head back into the Christmas fun today with some layouts from the Beary Christmas Scrapbook Workshops Your Way.

As always, the Scrapbook Workshops Your Way include everything you need to create 3 double paged layouts – plus you’ll have plenty of left overs for cards or additional pages. One of the great things about these kits is the flexibility. You can use the guide with the layouts as designed, make changes to fit your pictures or style, or go completely into your own direction. I’ve had a lot going on lately – so I’ve stuck with the pre-designed guide – this is a lot easier on my brain.

This layout was originally designed with 4×6 portrait photos. Since I like to include more pictures on my layouts, I swapped out three of the 4x6s for 3×4 landscape photos. I just love that first picture of the ornaments – this was my son’s first time helping to decorate the tree – and this was how he put them on the tree.

This layout is just like the design – but if you don’t want those poinsettias – this is an easy paper to flip and you’ll have bears & trees on the border. Both options look great!

Sorry I don’t have a picture of the second option – but here’s a picture of the paper. See how easy it is to just flip the paper to the other side – I love when I can make a design change without taxing my brain too much.

IMG_4895I know I just said I like to put more pictures on my pages – and here’s this layout with just 4 – BUT if you keep scrolling, you can see that this layout is great for adding Pocket Plus Memory Protectors.

For this layout I used Design 3 for the 3×4 photos and Design 1 for the 4×6 photos. This is a great place to use the cut apart pocket cards that come with each paper packet.

Well – there you go – another Christmas in the books – this one is from 2004 – but at least it made it to the books!

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy!

Quick & DONE!

For some reason, I don’t get great pictures of my kids at Halloween. I’m not sure if it’s the time of day or possibly, they’re so excited about candy that they’re moving at hyper-speed and I just get blurs…. The great thing about this is I can use a single Workshop Your Way kit and complete 3 years of Halloween scrapbook layouts! Quick & DONE!

This first layout originally used a 5×7 landscape photo on the left – remember what I said about the lack of good pictures – I had nothing that was worthy of a 5×7 print.

I was originally going to just cut the Emerald mat down to fit the 4×6 photo,  but I forgot! So, I added a few extra layers – they go… photo, Emerald (light side), Black, Emerald (dark side) – this does a great job of showing off our two-toned cardstock!

I have another option with this layout – simply flip the patterned papers and you get this..

I love how easily I can use the same design & even papers, but yet have a different layout for each of my boys.

Here’s another amazingly easy layout. I liked how the orange mat on the 3×4 photos was cut in a 3×3 square – so a portion of the picture hangs off the edge – it just adds a little different look. Also, the tiled words paper is great to cut apart and use as an embellishment.

This last layout is super easy! The ombre coloring of the base sheet adds a lot of dimension and interest without having to add a lot of additional patterned paper. The Halloween sticker and other pieces from the Complements pack really make it easy to embellish.

So there you go – I got 2005, 2006, and 2007 – Done with the Cats & Bats Scrapbook WYW! While I was looking for pictures for these layouts, I also chose pictures for 2008 and 2015 and added those to my Jeepers Creepers layouts from last year. He  he he … I feel like I’ve gotten so much accomplished!

Thanks for checking out my blog. I hope you are having a fantastic week and look forward to seeing you Saturday for the Blog Hop!

Enjoy!
