Every month Sarah issues us a challenge to get our creative juices flowing and to dive into our stashes of Core’dinations so what better way to start of a new year that with a Colour Lover’s Challenge!

I know a lot of us are covered in snow but that doesn’t mean all you need to think of is white, white white! Let’s use some color this month.

Here is Heather’s colour combination:

And here is her layout:
{look at that sweet, sweet face!}

I know that here on the East Coast it has been so cold and from what I see on the news, most of the States are getting hammered with frigid weather so what a perfect time to stay inside, stay warm and scrap!

That is exactly what Cari Locken has been doing. She created this beautiful layout about finding the perfect Christmas tree despite the cold weather AND she shows how great it looks to mix the different lines of  Core’dinations Cardstock. {Vintage, Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions, Core Essentials}

Cari Locken!

1. What is your most treasured Holiday memory?
When my grandparents could spend Christmas with our family and meet our oldest child. That was the only one that they were able to see in person. So I treasure that memory!

2. Do you have any special Holiday traditions that are unique to you and your family?
We like to do an advent calendar every year. Chopping down our own Christmas tree. Baking and eating certain foods only at this time of year.
Well, we just started this but it will be a fun tradition to continue for many years. We were given a pickle tree ornament. You hang it on the tree on Christmas Eve and the 1st child to find it on the tree (in the morning) gets an extra present! … and trust me -this thing is hard to find!

3. What kind of {scrapbooking} projects are you creating this year for this Holiday Season?
I made christmas cards this year but nothing else. That was it!

Cari is sharing this beautiful card with us today. The white cardstock and embossing is really classic…a perfect way to ring in the new year.

We’re counting down until the New Year…

… with Kim Moreno!

1. What is your most treasured Holiday memory? It had to be when I had all my kids together at the house with all the grandkids.

2. Do you have any special Holiday traditions that are unique to you and your family? The kids always open a package after church on Christmas Eve service. They laid out cookies and milk for Santa. I decorate the outside of the house like the Grizwalds – about 50+ strands of lights. I have tons of Christmas decorations.

3. What kind of {scrapbooking} projects are you creating this year for this Holiday Season?
I am (still) working on two mini albums for my nieces for Christmas. I make around 50 Christmas cards for family and all the people I work with.

The second to last day of our Countdown has arrived…

And here on the East Coast it is cooooooooold and we just got hit with a ton of snow! We have our final day for the countdown today with Ellen Sosnoski.

Make sure you check back later this week…we will still be blogging!

1. What is your most treasured Holiday memory? My favorite Holiday memory is making cookies with my Grandma and Aunt Sandra. Every year I would go over to one of their houses and we would bake ALL day. We made THREE batches of butter cookies. Since I was the young one, I had to mix everything {you have to do it by hand at the end} and I would have to do the cookie press. I still swear til this day that they just used me for my muscles 😉 But seriously…it was “our thing” and even when I was in college I would go over on Thanksgiving break before I left and we would bake the day away. This is the first year we made Grandma’s butter cookies without her.

2. Do you have any special Holiday traditions that are unique to you and your family? We have started some on our own, one of the most fun ones is the Pickle. There is a German tradition to hide the pickle ornament on the tree and the first one up that finds it gets a special present. Owen and I also make some kind of Gingerbread structure every year…this year we are making a train.

3. What kind of {scrapbooking} projects are you creating this year for this Holiday Season? I did a lot of hand crafted things this year…a lot more than other years. I did a few ornaments, some altered tins for gifts and an advent wall hanging. No cards though, I still order them 😉

Here is a little Wall Hanging I did using some Chocolate box Cardstock:
