Christmas hugs!

Happy Monday! Wow, it's ringing like crazy here today! I've taken 179 calls in 100 minutes! Finally it is starting to calm down a bit. You need to fit
Today I'm sharing two layouts from Christmas Eve. Here in Sweden we celebrate Christmas on the 24th and we had Christmas dinner and exchanged gifts together with hubbys extended family. On these photos one and the same armchair is taking centre position and there was no chance I could fit it into a Christmas theme. Instead I decided to take inspiration from the pattern and the colors and focus on the Christmas spirit instead, all these photos have alot of it!
First I have two very excited kids, totally crazy from all the expectations. It is almost like the photos come with sounds, you can almost hear them! I used up some ancient Basic Grey paper as a background and some ribbons that's been in my stash like forever. The gold dots are Card Candi and I'm pretty happy about those, they make a nice impact and add some dimension and extra finish.
I love these photos! It is my father in law and my daughter sharing that arm chair. The papers are from Basic Grey's collection Persimmon. I've added sequins, card candi and some other details on three clusters. I grounded the clusters on circles made from embossed and sanded Core'dinations cardstock. Love the effect!
I've recived my two last post bound albums. I've decided to try D-ring. I've decided on albums from Pioneer and page protectors from We R Memory Keepers. I'll order them from CiLi in Papers as soon as I have filled the albums I have now. 100 layouts. Can't take too long, can it?  :)
I will take a photo of the twine and yarn, that I bought together with the albums, and show here in the blog!
Have a nice day!


  1. The two layouts are great but the first one is a wow for me. I like the photos first of all, your kids are so cute, and I also like the colours, the papers. Excellent work dear. :)

  2. Such cute layouts, I especially like the colors and papers you used for the first one!

  3. Adorable photos, great pages! I especially love the stripe paper on the second layout as compliments the colors of the armchair!

  4. What sweet photos. Love the title work.

  5. Super cute layouts! I really love the color. I recently switched to D-ring albums also, although I do still have a few lingering post-bound albums.

  6. I adore your pages, the pics are so sweet! I switched to D-Rings awhile ago and never looked back.

  7. These layouts are great. The photos are so precious. Good luck with your album organizing! :)
