It’s December! Are you ready? To help get you in the spirit of the season we are kicking off the December challenges with a “five things” seasonal challenge. Tell us about five things that you love about the season, or need to have happen so you know it’s holiday time. That could mean (for example) five things Christmas past, or five things you do to give back to your community, or five Christmas traditions, or your five favorite gifts received or given, or maybe five favorite Christmas carols. And of course we are not limited to Christmas: share with us five things about how you celebrate this season of joy.
Helping us with a little inspiration are my friends Debi (beehive50) and Pam (blkcow), who have both created fabulous pages, have a look!
Debi had a very funny interpretation of the five things idea with her page about her Dad’s five grandchildren gathered for the holiday with their grandpa, and what it took to get a “keeper” photo. I loved her take on the challenge! That clever use of the black and white tone for the outtakes, leading us into the in-color prize photo was a great idea!
Debi used these products on her page: Thin Classic Photo Frames Curled and Flat No. 03, Curated Studio Mix Scrapbooking Kit No. 29, Pencil Twist Arrows Brushes and Stamps No. 02, Scratchy Scribbles Brushes and Stamps No. 03, and coming soon to the store, Season’s Best Solids.
Pam’s page is a wonderful display of five of her favorite ornaments, each one more special than the last. Love the clustering around the frames, the houndstooth border, and the great word art and wintery elements throughout.
Pam’s page has these products: December Stories Scrapbooking Collection, Messy Stitched Borders: White No. 02, Blue Bird Complete Scrapbooking Collection, December Memories Brushes and Stamps No. 02, Layer Works No. 400, and this cute freebie that Katie provided!
For my page I included five of my favorite Christmas cookies, because at my house it’s not Christmas until I start baking! I used the cute freebie from Katie, and a lot of other fun embellishments to tell my story:
My page uses these supplies: Layer Works No 134, Holly Twists, Candy Striped Photo Frames No 2, Gingerbread Whimsy No 1, Assorted Messy Stitches No 7 Super Pack, Handdrawn Graphic Strips No 1, Seasons Finest kit (coming soon), Taped Together Stacks December No 1 (coming soon), and Katie’s cute freebie!
Feel free to grab the cute freebie from Katie if you’d like, but it’s not required to qualify for the challenge.
