It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas!
The new My Minds Eye Colorful Christmas has arrived at Paper Pals! And it is so very fun to play with, too.
I have to admit that it was a little tough to be inspired for Christmas layouts in the heat of July! One of my favorite ways to get layout ideas is look at scrapbooking magazines. I found some layout inspirations in the December 2008 issue of Creating Keepsakes. Here's the cover photo that inspired my Springtime Snow layout:
Two more of my layouts:
These layouts required only small bits of the busy patterned papers in this line--it stretches your patterned paper to use on several different projects. I cut pieces out to create small coordinating embellishments for the pages.
One other layout that inspired my Christmas 2008 layout is here:
I also had some fun creating come cards with these papers.
Do these papers inspire you to scrapbook Christmastime in the summer?
