Keeping in the Holiday Spirit

Christmas is hectic. We're busy baking, decorating,shopping and spending time with friends and family...all of which means we sometimes miss out on scrapbooking. This week, I was so grateful for my December JBS Mercantile  kits. I used them to take a time out from the hectic holiday hustle and bustle.

I printed up a few older Christmas photos which feature my son. It was so easy to mix and match the coordinated kits this month. Since I didn't have to worry about choosing just the right products, I was able to spend my limited creative time just letting the story unfold.

 The Mini Chalkboard Alpha Stickers in red came in handy to mix my journaling in with the main portion of the title. I saved some of the small dots from the Queen and Company borders in this month's Artisian kit. They made a lovely confetti like sprinkle among the stars in the title.

Being able to see the photos and create the layouts really brought my focus back. The photos, after all, represent the end result that comes from all of the rushing about and planning. Sometimes it helps to take a deep breath and remember just what this season is all about.

 Taking a little time out with the December Kits has sure helped me keep in the holiday spirit. I invite you to do the same. Take some time for yourself to create a little something. If you do take a creative time out, we'd love to see the results in the JBS Mercantile gallery.

Pin It!
