Christmas Traditions!

We have a number of Christmas traditions in our family. One of them is that we put "Santa sacks" under the Christmas tree on Christmas eve. There is one for each member of our family (mum and dad too!!) and one of my daughters will make name tags so there will be no confusion lol! Then first thing on Christmas morning we all go down together to look in them. This photo was taken Christmas morning 2012 and there was a very happy and excited girl looking in her sack!

The new "Christmas Tradition" stamp set from Kellie Stamps  was perfect for this page (and will be perfect for all my Christmas SMASH*ing to come). I've used Christmas Time is beaut, Oh Christmas tree, Joy, Favourite, moment, Christmas, and Tradition. I really love that you can mix and match the words "Favourite" or Christmas" with other words such as "moment", "tradition", "traditions", "party", "memories", "concert", or "holiday"!
I have used more patterned paper on this page than I typically do. I have so much in my stash and I've decided to try and use it! I have also added some little crochet doilies that I've sprayed to match the colours of the page. I find that I'm really liking buying mainly white embellishments and spraying them to suit!
I also love using tags on my pages, but usually they are hidden behind photos. This time I've decorated it to feature on the page.
I've also include D-lish Scraps bitty blooms & resin mini daisies; Simple Stories Sn@p stickers; Stampin' Up! brown cardstock and patterned papers; SMASH* labelmaker; Studio Calico wood veneer trees; Basic Grey alphas; and twine, crochet doilie, stocking button, tag, flair, & sequins from my stash.

Thanks so much for stopping by

Absolutely amazing Karyn. Your scrap style is something I admire. You use so much but it never looks crowded, I love it Karyn!
