December is such a fun month of winter memories, holiday celebrations, and excitement. In the shop this month, there are SO many amazing new sequin mixes and some great cut files. You should have arrived here after checking out Hannah's amazing project! I decided to stay away from the traditional Christmas colors and theme today and instead tell a different kind of story.
One year for Christmas, my youngest son begged and pleaded for a drum set. It was the only thing he asked Santa for and talked about it for months. That drum set caused the biggest smiles that filled his whole face! He was SO proud of his new musical "skills" and drove everyone crazy with his masterful songs...LOL! That story deserved a special space in his scrapbook! There are a series of photos on the coordinating page to this one that tell the story in detail and show his reaction when opening the gift and helping his dad put it all together.
The cut files for December in the SpiegelMom Scraps store were a great starting point for this story. I used them as a stitching template to create the different musical notes. Then, I combined it with some star cut-outs and two different new sequin mixes in order to create the background elements on this page. Everything paired perfect with the Crate Paper Cool Kid collection. SUPER FUN!
I hope that you enjoyed this layout and use it as a starting place to tell a story about a favorite gift, musical talent, or treasured Santa surprise! This holiday season I definitely encourage you to think outside the box with your layouts and stories. That is definitely what I will be doing this year and would love to see you check out more of what I'm creating by following me on Instagram @redefinedkreative and subscribing to my You Tube Channel by clicking here.
And off you go to check out the stunning layout by Sara Scraps who also worked with the music cut file today! Happy Crafting!!
