12 Days of Christmas: Day 4

You know, every time I say one more ‘day’, it just reminds me that I am still not ready for Christmas. I remember the days when I’d have my shopping done by Halloween. Having three kids with birthdays the month before Christmas will do that to a person. But these days? Not quite so on the ball anymore.

So the question is, are you ready? What are some of your traditions? Do you open up your gifts on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day . . . or a little of both? Do you make and decorate sugar cookies for the neighbors? Do you make luminaries to light your sidewalk? Well, speaking of luminaries, check out what Miss Naomi did!



[ Shapes | This+That: Christmas (holly+berries) / This+That: Christmas Past (‘let it snow’ + snowflakes) / December Twenty Five (handwritten words) ]

That is a really cool idea! Soooo love them ‘all aglow’!

Naomi mod-podged tissue paper to mason jars, used some die-cuts, glittered them up, then mod-podged those to the jar after the tissue paper dried, and got these luminaries.

Great idea Naomi!


So, when I was plotting out some of the things I wanted to do over these two weeks, a star background was on my list of must-do! And when I got Naomi’s fabulous luminaries, I thought the two tied together so well!

Therefore, here is today’s freebie.


It comes in 4 different sizes so you can use it for Project Life, December Daily, or for any background for just about any reason! It doesn’t have to be Christmas. It could be Canada Day, 4th of July, a boys page . . . totally versatile!

To download this free–today only–click HERE.

This shape is no longer available for free, but you can purchase it HERE.


So in the spirit of using a fun background with your Project Life, that’s what’s on sale today!



It’s normally $10, but today (and only today) it’s on sale for $5.
This is no longer on sale, but you can click on the image above or click HERE to purchase it.


If you’re new here–or maybe you may not remember–you may want to see what Nichol did with one of these shapes.

sooooo love.

    Love the holiday freeies!I am having problems with the link too – both yesterday and today. It brings me to a google doc page that requires a log-in. I did’t encounter this problem earlier in the week.

      Ohhhhh for goodness sake! I swear I had that set to Public vs. Private status.
      Give it a whirl now and see if it works for y’all.
      Sorry ’bout that!

    These freebies look great! Unfortunately I’m facing the same problem of not being able to download because “you don’t have permission”. I thought it was just a one day issue but it happens today again :-(
