Laura's 6x8 December Dreams Layout for December Daily

Hi Everyone, it's Laura here to share a 6x8 layout I made using the December Dreams collection for my December Daily this year. One of my favorite things to incorporate is stories from past Christmases, mixed in with stories from the current year. I love having a flash from the past included in my album.


I always start my album on Thanksgiving day, and I've found that week before December 1st to be the perfect time to tell some of these stories. This year I was inspired by the cute gingerbread die cuts in the kit to tell a story about a tradition from when I was a kid of making gingerbread houses with my mom.


I worked with a digital version of this kit, so I played around with printing on different types of paper. For my background I printed out the snowflake personal planner page onto vellum, and the die cut gingerbread house was printed onto iridescent paper to add a bit of sparkle.

I also used past kit components to pull the page together. I used a die cut frame and a title from the Hello Beautiful Kit. I love that this collection plays together so well with December Dreams.

Thanks for looking and I hope you're having an enjoyable holiday season!

Michelle's "Hello, Beautiful!" Greeting Card

Hi there, crafty friends! I recently got inspired to make a bunch of greeting cards, and I’m happy to share this one with you using digital printables from the “Hello, Beautiful!” collection from The Fairytale Club. A friend of mine recently started graduate school and her first week was a bit rough, and I knew that a whimsical card is just what she needed

She and I have been friends for a long time, and we have a lot in common. But one of the things we differ on is a love of sparkles. As for me, I can’t get enough, but she’s not so into glitter and girly things like I am. I remembered that the “Hello, Beautiful!” kit had some black and white elements that I could layer to make a pretty card.


I wanted to keep this pretty simple, so I didn’t add too many elements or color, and I knew the “Fairytales” paper would make the perfect background. Also, I thought that vellum inside the frame would be a great way to kind of block out the text a bit, but not completely, and I love that look. Finally, I added that bit of leaf trim on the side and voila!


I love how this card turned out and I can’t wait to start another very soon!
