Twas The Night Before Christmas



These are some pages I did for a quarterly page swap. My inspiration was a quilt that I fell in love with and hope one day to finish. In the meantime, I am looking forward to filling these pages with Christmas Eve pictures from this year. We always have a big Christmas Eve Dinner (so we have nummy yummy leftovers for Christmas Day), the girls get new p.j.'s, we play games, and wait for Santa. I think the anticipation of Christmas Day is just as good if not better than the day itself.

If you would like to recreate these pages I used all Close to My Heart products except the thread for Santa's reins. The pages, Santa, and reindeer, are black CS (#1386 pg. 100), moon - Sunny Yellow CS (#1225 pg. 101), twas the night before words and holly leaves - Olive CS (#1245 pg. 101), Christmas words and holly berries - Tulip CS (#X5753 pg. 101), house - Brown Bag CS (#5644 pg.100), snow - White Daisy CS (#1385 pg. 100), windows - Honey (#X5668 pg 101). The smoke from the chimney is two spiral clips. The holly and letters were cut out with my Cricket. The shingles on the house are from the Cupcake Sprinkles Stamp Set (D1336 pg. 60). The bricks and window casing uses the November Stamp of the Month (shown below) - Around the Block (#D1377 pg 109).
