Come back throughout the month and I'll share close up pictures and tip and techniques on each one of my layouts but now, without any further ado, are my layouts using the Swirlydoos December Kit, Joyeux Noel!


Here's what  did with this gorgeous kit!

"20 wks" Layout
My first layout I did a NON Christmas layout of me at 20 weeks! I hit the halfway point in my pregnancy almost 2 weeks ago and I wanted to remember it. I used the golds and browns with red accents to scrap these two pics of me. I made this layout girly and frilly and I love it!

"Merry Christmas" Layout
I love the green/red colors in this kit and of course had to scrap these pictures of a few Christmas back of my family. I used this month gorgeous sketch as a base for this layout. I did some punching and water distressing and layering and I included some of those gorgeous ornaments from the pattern paper that i fuzzy cut.

"Christmas Greetings" Tealight Card
I made this quick Christmas Tealight Holder Card to give away this year. You can find the template for it HERE. I purchased the Add On Paper this month because I knew I'd need extra sheets of this gorgeous bird and sure enough, I used them both already!

Altered Paper Bag Gift Bag
I made this sweet altered brown paper bag to use this year as a hostess gift. Come back on Saturday and I'll have a step by step on how I made it so you can make one as well!

You have until midnight, eastern time, on Friday 12/6 to complete the hop. Winners will be announced on the Swirlydoos Blog on Thursday 12/7. 

In order to qualify to win here is what you need to do:
