Are You Ready to Scrapbook Christmas?

Now that the new year has begun, are you ready to scrapbook your photos and memories from this past Christmas? It was certainly a different holiday season for many and the familiar phrase "Home for the Holidays" took on a different meaning as we stayed home due to mandates and/or choice to avoid the ongoing spread of the coronavirus.

One of my December projects was creating a couple of scrapbook layout kits for our local scrapbook store (which also offers online ordering), and I couldn't resist the familiar title and a few Cricut die cuts of home and hearth on this first one.

The second layout kit features traditional colors, a pile of gifts, and a layered Christmas tree.

Both of these kits are currently available (in limited quantities) at Personal Scrapbook in Allen, Texas. They can be purchased in store or ordered online for curbside pickup or shipping.

I've already chosen photos for each layout (which I'll be adding once my samples are no longer needed at the store). For the first layout, I chose a mixture of photos from Christmas week, including screenshots of Zoom get-togethers with family (to play a game and to read Christmas storybooks to my nieces/nephew) and my parents here for Christmas dinner and a movie. The other layout will hold photos of Robbie and me on Christmas Day - enjoying pie at 10 and opening gifts.

How was your Christmas? Are you ready to scrapbook the photos?


  1. Happy New Year! I'm always ready to scrapbook Christmas! :)

  2. Both are really nice kits & should sell out in no time. I have started to scrapbook Christmas but I'm waiting on the bulk of the photos to be delivered.

    Happy New Year.

  3. These should work really well for Christmas photos - really like your layered tree in the second one. This year, I did a page or so a day in December (there's a couple of posts on my blog) and it became a 50 page photobook which is now at the printers :).

  4. These are darling - a paper-pieced tree is always a treat. My Christmas is scrapped. I don't think I have ever been this quick. But I had class pages from Creating Keepsakes convention last March (the weekend before the pandemic restrictions were announced)that worked perfectly. I wanted to deal with all the photo Christmas cards as well. And I have the photos from the pandemic months printed so I can do in pocket pages. I am feeling the need to keep busier in 2021, as my attempt to fight off the winter blues that could be worse than usual this year.


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
