Hot cocoa, holiday movies, and time with family ... the holidays are just around the corner and I can't wait! Hi, everyone! It's Jana Eubank. The Country Christmas collection has a classic holiday vibe that makes me want to snuggle up in a blanket next to the fireplace and watch the snow gently fall outside the window. It also puts me in the mood to do a little Christmas scrapbooking!

I pulled out a Christmas Eve photo of my kids next to the tree and created this next layout. I layered up several sheets from the 6x8 Paper Pad to create a textured mat for the photo. I even fussy-cut the large wreath from one of the papers to tuck behind the left side. Along the bottom of the photo, I added stickers from the Combo Sticker Sheet and the Banner Sticker Sheet.

For the background I layered up even more patterns ... Can you tell I love patterned paper? Ha! I used the Cardinal Simple Basics paper as the base, and then added the 2x2 Elements Paper (green pine trees) matted with the plaid side of the Christmas Magic paper.

I always create several 12x12 layouts for our family album, but my favorite holiday project to work on each year is my December Album. I typically put the album together after the holidays are over, keeping track of our activities throughout the month to go with the pictures I've snapped. This year, I'm going to try a new approach! I created my album ahead of time with the Country Christmas SN@P! Cards, Bits & Pieces, Floral Bits & Pieces, Chipboard Stickers, and the 6x8 Paper Pad. I then placed white cardstock in the spaces where I plan to add photos. 

I have a photo printer at home and so this project should come together fairly easy, even if I only have time to work on it once a week throughout the holiday season. I'm excited to give this approach a try!

Of course I am using the coordinating Country Christmas 6x8 Holilday SN@P! Binder for this project! If I happen to need more space for a particular event, I can always add more pages, or move things around with the simple-to-use D-ring. I LOVE these albums so much!

I hope you have found some inspiration to get you excited for your holiday projects this year! The Country Christmas collection has everything you need to make your Christmas crafting beautiful AND fun!

Fall is my family's favorite time of year to be outside! Whether it's drives through the mountains to see the colorful leaves, a visit to the pumpkin patch, or walks around the neighborhood, we can never seem to get enough of our favorite season!

The Autumn Splendor collection encapsulates everything we love about autumn with its color palette and beautiful, botanical images. It was so much fun creating this page for our family album!

I fell head over heels for the coordinating stencil for this collection and decided to add it to the background paper (3x4 Elements paper). I love the way the stenciled details look peeking out from behind the Foliage Bits & Pieces. I repeated the stenciling around the page in three areas to create a visual triangle in my design and to keep your eye moving around the page.

I framed the single photo for this page with a Layered Chipboard Frame and then added layers of additional patterned papers and Foliage Bits & Pieces leaves behind for texture. This entire grouping is popped up on foam tape.

I fussy-cut the journal block from the 3x4 Elements paper and then added it to the right of my photo at a downward angle. A pair of foliage leaves and a butterly connect it the journal block to the layered photo block and add even more to the outdoor-sy feel!

I combined the chipboard "AUTUMN" word with orange letters from my stash for the title. I added distress ink to the orange letters to tie them in with the inking in the background.

This beautiful collection makes me long for sunny Autumn days and fall drives in the mountains! I can't wait for the leaves to begin changing! Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you feel inspired to scrapbook some of your fall family photos, too!

Ahhh! There is now a bite in the morning and evening air and that means that fall is just around the corner! Squeal! It's my FAVORITE time of year! Hello, everyone! It's Jana Eubank. Whenever fall comes around, I want to cozy up inside and BAKE! You do, too?! There's just something about coming home to the scent of pumpkin muffins or chocolate chip cookies baking in the oven on a crisp fall day, am I right?

Today's layout features the warm colors of the Fall Farmhouse collection and photos of my daughter and her friend doing a little fall baking themselves!

I wanted to create a patchwork effect on this layout. I chose the Harvest/Dots paper for the background and then cut several of the papers from the 6x8 Paper Pad into 2"x4" and 2"x2" blocks. 

My photos are also 2"x4" and are matted with the SN@P! Basics Aspen/White Notebook paper.

I used the 6x12 Chipboard Stickers and the Combo Stickers to accent the title and create an embellishment cluster next to the middle photo. I am in LOVE with the wheat and berries tucked in with the florals. They look so cute with those plump and cheerful pumpkins!

I cut the label shape from the 4x4 Elements paper and then used a label and pumpkin sticker from the Mini Sticker Tablet to accent it. I also added green enamel dots and the chipboard banner and tiered plate stickers. CUTE!

Of course I had to pull in some washi tape, too! You can see that I layered the gingham and striped washi tapes together across the top and bottom blocks. I also added a bit of the gingham washi to the right of the title.

Happy Fall to one and all! Have a great day!
