Cheers to a New Year!

Lori has a festive layout to share just in time for the New Year. Mostly she used elements from the Kris Kringle collection.

It's fun to see the festive papers and gold accents transformed from Christmas to New Year's celebrations. The wine glass cut outs and playful type help carry the theme.

We hope you will have a great celebration tonight and a New Year full of "getting it right". Anyone have any scrapbooking/paper-crafting resolutions?

Night Lights & Santa Baby

Audrey has two festive layouts to share today. It's fun to read her journaling. It's so important to record those special traditions and memories.

For her "Night Lights" layout she used paper and embellishments from the Kris Kringle collection. We love all the different ways she used rhinestones on the layout and how she snuck in a neutral Spooks paper!

This is how she made it, "I cut out a bunch of circles from the patterned paper, and then punch a few from some of the other patterns. For my 'lights' I used s squiggly line stamp and just added some rhinestones for the 'lights'."

Audrey did a wonderful job layering and combining embellishments in this "Santa Baby" layout. She tucked candy canes in some of the felt accents. Look at that tiny little gift tag she created for the present with the date on it!

Valentine's Gift Baskets

Club SEI's January kit features the lovely With All My Heart collection. Click here to see what club members can make with this kit. You will fall in love with these adorable projects! If you aren't a club member, you can still sign-up.

Each kit comes with tons of great product and projects. But since Club SEI is so amazing they also sweeten the deal with free click-n-prints for club members. We decided to show you some Valentine's gift baskets we put together using January's click-n-prints.

How about one for that guy who is so hard to buy for? Just fill it with his favorite things!

Maybe you need to get something for your mother or girlfriend. It's easy to find things to fill this basket. Look for things she can use to pamper herself.

Don't forget those kiddos! Go to the dollar store and find some fun toys. Our coloring books weren't the cutest so we wrapped them with papers from the kit. Problem solved.

Happy 3rd Thursday!


Aren't they lovely - I'm thinking that now that the Christmas bunting is done for this year I might have to get into a bit of stick art next Christmas.  Surely it can't be that hard!  Maybe a gumleaf version...
Thses beauties can be found here

Merry and Bright

We hope you are ready to start your winter and holiday scrapbooking because Julie has two unique layouts that will knock your socks off! Isn't it amazing that these both come from the Kris Kringle collection?

Here's a tip from Julie. "If your looking for a way to 'contain' your layout - try adding a few layers of cardstock to help "frame the inner patterned paper. Then create a fun doodled border to give your 'frame' a little pizazz!!!"

Take in all the details.

Did you notice how she cut around the swirls, added the gems to some of the snowflake centers, and layered her embellishments?

Julie said, "Photo collages are a great way to fit multiple pictures on your pages. On this layout I created a 4 square collage & then mimicked this above and below the collage with squares of patterned paper. To offset the corners of the inner portion of this layout, I added some fun focal points. In the top left corner & bottom right corner I layered up a few of SEI's fabulous die-cuts with pop dots - a fun way to add dimension & balance to the layout!!!"

Once again, great details, especially the embellishment layering. Lovely job, Julie!
