Candy Cane Love {Feeling Crafty}

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // Candy Cane Love digital scrapbooking layout using #CreativeChristmas Bundle kits

What’s Christmas treats do you love? My girls love candy canes! And getting extra ones during an outing for Christmas card photos? Even better!

Being a photographer means I have tons of photos, and luckily many of those photos are of my girls. Being a memory keeper means I print my photos and get them in pages for my family to enjoy. Being a contributor to the Creative Christmas Bundle means I get to play with all the yummy goodies that are in the bundle, like the papers, embellies and overlays in this layout!

I loved taking bits and pieces from 4 different contributors kits to create this layout (listed below). They worked beautifully together, and there were definitely enough goodies in each kit to make lots of projects without even needing to mix and match. In total, there are 15 designers who contributed to the bundle, with lots of different projects, designs, and ways to help you make this your most creative Christmas ever!

Lisa Harris of My Kreative Pursuits did a great job summarizing what each designer contributed to the kit in this video…

 

I really do love the way this layout came out! I’m envisioning this would be lovely as part of a December Daily album. What do you think? Be sure to check out the entire Creative Christmas Bundle and let me know in the comments what project you’d love to create first? There is so much value in the kit with over $300 worth of products — classes, downloads, cut files, stitch patterns, calendars, gift projects and more — for only $29.99 – get it before it’s GONE! Yup, I know, it’s a phenomenal deal! All the projects are great and I look forward to an amazing, enjoyable and super creative Christmas!

Even if you don’t purchase the bundle (and miss out on so many great projects for a steal of a price – say wha?!), be sure to support at least one small business today. Each designer (links below) who contributed to the bundle sells great products, classes and services, and there are tons of wonderful creatives, artists and makers over at Etsy, as well as Society6. Keep small businesses moving forward and show them some love today ❤
