Jody West - I am currently loving Jennifer Z’s new kit, Gilded Christmas.  It has silver and gold embellishments which I love for gender neutral christmas scrapping as well as being traditional without being red or green.  Plus it is a little bling-y which I adore!

If you are planning on putting together a personalized Christmas card this year, look no further than these card templates by Cheri Thieleke, ScrapSimple Card Templates: 5×7 Card Shark 2012  They come as a layered .psd, making it super easy to change them up to suit your card making needs. What could be simpler than combing the card templates with a great kit like Brandy Murry’s Holiday Magic Collection Biggie ? This kit adds a beautiful elegance to any Christmas layout.
 

JIF Plus: 12×12 Santas Sleigh is a sweet little kit that can be used to throw together a quick Christmas layout as all you have to do is insert your photo into the pre-made layout .  The traditional colors and fun Christmas embellishments will also mix and match with your favorite Christmas Collections making this JIF Plus kit a super valAnna Burrows Shared this layout that she used in her calendars for this year:

anna calendar layoutAnna Burrows - I’m afraid when it comes to Christmas I’m a traditional colours gal all the way!  I love Brandy Murry’s Cottage Christmas collection – lovely traditional Christmas colours but versatile enough for all wintery layouts and more. I also love Brandy’s White Christmas collection.  The papers are awesome for all manner of layouts but what I love most with this collection is the special Embellishment Clusters – they are so gorgeous and make for producing a fabulous layout in super quick time at this hectic time of the year.

Elisha Barnett’s Value Pack: Sugar Plum is packed full of candy and cookie elements, perfect to scrap photos of the gingerbread creations we made last year.  I also enjoyed using the coordinating style, ScrapSimple Tools – Styles: Sugar Plum Frosting, to make a cookie title.

Valerie Tuffrey - I really like So This Is Christmas Collection Biggie digital scrapbooking kit, by Angie Briggs.  I love the choice of papers and the embellishments are so versatile.  It’s great to use for a wide variety of photos not just ones of little kids.


Here’s a layout Valerie created using Angie’s kit:

I love the colours of A Christmas to Remember Collection Biggie digital scrapbooking kit, by Brandy Murry.  I can’t wait to use it with some of this year’s Christmas photos.

April Martell - While I adore all the different Christmas collections, I had three little girls who often wore pink and purple on Christmas morning. I tend to use collections that combine those girly colors with a more traditional red and green.
Candy Cane Lane Collection Mini
Kiddie Christmas Collection
Merry & Bright Collection Mini
Sugar Plum Collection Biggie

Monica Lebsack - Personally, my favorites are Value Pack: Pixie MischiefValue Pack: Candy Cane Kisses, and Wesley ‘s Christmas Collection Biggie.  I love the playfulness of the first two.  They’re perfect for the my children and their cousins at this age.  Wesley’s Christmas Collection is just so beautiful, I couldn’t pass it up.  I love how realistic the bulbs, the stockings, and the fireplace are.

Here’s a super cute siggy Monica created and is using in the SG forum:

Joyce Schardt – One of my favorites is the Little Red Bird Collection Mini,  I love the color combination of blue and red.

Here’s a layout Joyce did using the Little Red Bird kit:

Amy Flanagan - My favorite Christmas pick is Little Red Bird!  I love the non traditional Christmas colors, and I love that this collection can be used for Christmas layouts, but also can be used for wintery layouts after the holiday!  Plus I”m partial because there is a bird in the collection!

One of my favorite layouts of all time is from Brush Set: Little Red Bird:

Also, I love Merry Mint Collection Mini.  I don’t have it yet, but I know it would be really great for scrapping the vintage /heritage Christmas photos. I really love the retro style Rudolph and the wisps of musical scores.  So creative!  I also like it because it isn’t quite traditional Christmas red and green.

Another of my all time favorites is the Holy Night Collection.I love the deep, rich colors,  but mostly I love the feelings of the true meaning of Christmas that this collection evokes.

Here’s a new layout Amy did using Holy Night Collection:
