I LOVE Christmas. All the lights, the decorations, the family get together, the food, the giving, the getting and most of all the true meaning of Christmas; Jesus and his birth. But one thing I don't like about Christmas is scrapping it. I have the hardest time with holidays and go figure that is when one takes a ton of pictures.
I find myself always buying all the new holiday lines when they come out, but then I donot use them and they collect dust in my scrappy area. I have been having a hard time scrapping lately, lots of life changes, so I decided to reevaluate how and why I scrap. And figured why not tackle something I think is hard for me and see if I can do it. If I can, then the rest should come easy, right? J
I bought some new Doodlebug Christmas Candy this winter and decided this was it; I was going to do some Christmas layouts. Doodlebug is a timeless scrapbooking company. They always have the cutest papers and embellishments and they stick with what they know works. While I do love trends and the companies that supply us scrappers with that, I also love that I can pick up a Doodlebug paper or embellishment and mix them with some from a couple years back and they mesh together perfectly.
For example, this layout below uses papers and stickers from this Winters Christmas Candy release, yet it also uses buttons and letters from a couple of years back…which I found easily using my organized Clip it up! Would you notice that if I did not tell you?? That is what I think is great about Doodlebug. It is simply Timeless!
This is my last post for Clip it Up. It has been a pleasure working with such talented ladies and working with a product I completely believe in!!!! Happy Holidays to all and may 2010 bring peace, happiness and joy!!
