I absolutely LOVE the bright fresh colours in the Bella Blvd Christmas Countdown collection!!!  I created this layout for a challenge on the Bella Blvd blog:  we were to use the quote "Don't be afraid; Just Believe" Mark 5:36" to inspire our pages.  You can check it out on the Bella Blvd blog HERE.

I found this note that my daughter wrote to Santa last year when I dug out the Christmas supplies!  I knew I wanted to include it on a page!  She is so sweet….she didn't write to ask for anything…just to let Santa know that she loves him.  Sweet girl.

The die cuts in this collection are amazing…I love how easy it makes scrapbooking!  So perfect for my simple style - I really want to focus on telling the story and not have to spend too much time on my pages!  Bella Blvd is amazing for this!  I seriously could use that "Christmas Love" heart on so many different pages!!

And those stars….love the stars!

We are still enjoying the magic of the holiday in my house!  It sure will be hard to go back to the school/work routine!!!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!  I hope you are enjoying your time with your families!  Our Christmas was pretty quiet this year…just me and these two beautiful girls!  I am loving being home and spending so much time with them!

I used Teresa Collins Santa's List for this layout!  Here is a close-up so you can see all those fabulous embellishments in this collection:

I definitely LOVE those sequins!!!!

Christmas Cards - Teresa Collins Santa's List

Christmas is quickly approaching….4 more days!!!!  It always seems to arrive much faster than expected :-)

Today I have a few cards to share that were recently on the Teresa Collins Design Team Blog.  I used the Santa's List Collection on all of them.

I am absolutely smitten with the sequins in this collection!  For my first card I filled up a treat bag with sequins and layered that overtop of a few of the patterned papers in the collection.  Next, I added the joy sticker, button and snowflake die cut.  I just love the look of the sequins in behind!

I kept this next one pretty simple (easy to mass produce…wink wink).   I just love the bold red in this collection!

I had fun on this last card and decided to push myself outside of my comfort zone!  I am normally quite "linear" in my designs but this time, I decided to play with circles!   The mix of die cuts and stickers makes this so quick and easy.  The enamel dots are just the right touch!
