Up on the housetop, reindeer pause
Out jumps good ol’ Santa Claus
Down through the chimney with lots of toys
All for the little ones, Christmas joys

The holidays, they’re getting closer and closer. The designers are really in the holiday spirit. Templates, and kits, and deals galore. The designers always do such a great job throughout the year, and I’m thankful that I get to share them with you all each week!

Now to share some GORGEOUS layouts using the new Buffet and “Holiday Joy”, the December Monthly Mix!

Created by Colleen. I love the layers with the creation of the tree, and the cluster in the corner. I also love the hanging ornaments on the opposite side. So well done!

Created by msbrad. I love how the journaling follows the reverse of the tree in the shape. So creative. I also love all the circles!

Created by emscraps. I love that the focus is all on the picture, and that it seems to be slightly off the page.

Fresh Baked: December 12, 2014

Deck the halls with boughs of holly, 
Fa la la la la, la la la la. 
Tis the season to be jolly, 
Fa la la la la, la la la la. 
Don we now our gay apparel, 
Fa la la, la la la, la la la. 
Troll the ancient Yule tide carol, 
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

The holidays, they’re getting closer and closer. The designs, they’re reflecting the feeling of the season. The season of joy. The season of love. The season of family and togetherness. And of course, the season of giving and receiving. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year!

Now to share some GORGEOUS layouts using the new Buffet and “Holiday Joy”, the December Monthly Mix!

Created by meagan43. I love the cluster work and the layers. It’s just beautiful! As is, of course, the beautiful kitty.

Created by msbrad. The lights. Oh I love the lights! I love how the pictures just seem to glitter and shine!

Created by scrappinbella.I love the cluster work. The shadows are so beautifully done. It’s almost like you can reach out and feel the different layers through the screen.

Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we’ve got no place to go
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!!
