The Night Before by Just For Fun Designs

The night before Christmas is always such a fun time. There is tons of excitement and then the kiddos finally tire out and off to bed they go with wonderful dreams of the next day. Scrap those picture or any of your holiday photos with the lovely new kit, The Night Before from Just For Fun Designs.

I used this kit for several different projects, first a layout of my boys attempting a Christmas craft project a few years ago (it was a disaster & ended up in the trash. The craft not the boys!).

Then I needed a cute new siggy for the SNP forum & that reindeer was too hard to resist.

Finally, I didn't have any gift tags for presents (gah, poor planning) but I did have some Avery labels; after some interwebz digging I found a template for the size labels I had & whipped a few up!

Silent Night by Wendy Tunison Designs

Long ago on a silent night, hark! the angels did sing. There, in a wooden manager, the birth of a king. Set in the town of Bethlehem, Silent Night has all of the elements needed to capture the peace, joy, and meaning of the very first Christmas season. You'll find the three wise men and star of night, a donkey and a lamb, and the backdrop of Bethlehem. There are plenty of buttons, flowers, borders and frames, plus an alpha set to help you decorate your page.

Scrap photos of your children's Sunday school performance, your favorite Christmas carol, even the newest addition to your nativity scene collection! You might even consider crafting your own Christmas cards, gift tags, and thank you notes. Celebrate the peace, love, and happiness of the Christmas season, and remember the reason, with a beautiful Silent Night layout.  For my layout using Silent Night, I also used Wendy's Temptations Remix Vol 5, great for lots of photos!

My boys participated in a play at school this year, they were so cute!!

Don't forget to check out this month's collab from the SNP designers too!  It's a beautiful woodsy winter collection that is perfect for all of those tree cutting, sleighing and snowman building activities!

Here's this great template set again, I really need to think of something to use the first template for!

For my layouts, I used Silent Night for the layout on the left & Let Me Count the Ways for the one on the right. Love these templates as I can use tons of pictures in them.

And here's links to the kits I used in case you'd like to pick them up!
