Christmas Layouts - Some you win, some you loose

After a month of non-scrapping, I got back in the mood. Specially as I got a A3+ printer for Christmas, from my dear husband. I've been wanting an A3 printer for a while, but was afraid that I wasn't going to use it enough to justify the cost. The printer is relatively not that expensive but the ink cartridges cost a fortune. But I LOVE it!!!!

Here's the Christmas-themed layouts I've finished so far. There's two I like, and two that are so and so.

This is my daughter in the school Christmas show in 2006. The junior infants dress as angels, and I almost didn't have a record of her as I couldn't find my camera, but one of the other moms took a photo for me. We both forgot all about it until a couple of months ago I was at her house and she was showing some of her children's photos and she found this one.

For the title I used a word which I couldn't pronounce, let alone spell, but somehow "angel with glasses" didn't appeal to me. I had to have the dictionary open while I was putting the title together. Like this one.

When I made the Christmas cards for our family, I printed an extra of the internal pages and framed them as an extra Christmas decoration at home. Christmas over, I used the photos for a layout for each child.

Even though the Basic Grey paper is not Christmas themed, I thought the colours would go well with the red on the photo background. Didn't work out as well I hoped.

Another page documenting some of the things she got from Santa and other favourite presents. I could be used as a double layout with the page above. Another so and so.

This is for my son's page. I used stuff from the December Studio Calico kit, plus this gorgeous felt garland which was given by my Secret Santa Jeanjeany, and the bottom is a combination of several word-art digital elements which I got from

Probably my favourite of the lot. Meant to do another page but run out of while cardstock...

What cool layouts! Love how you used the non-seasonal product and made it "Christmasy". Thanks for visiting my blog and for your suggestion about displaying my layouts - I'm going to do it!
