12 Days of Christmas: Day 8

Welcome to day 8 of our little 12 Days of Christmas fun!

It’s been snowing here off and on and it’s sure been finally feeling like Christmas. I’m just hoping that we will actually have snow on the ground Christmas day. Seems like it rarely happens anymore. And *gasp* dare I even wish for it to actually snow during that festive time? One could only hope.:) I’ve just opened my window so I could see the big pine trees out my window with their clumps of fluffy white snow that found a new hone during the night last night. It’s s beautiful site!

I have gotten several requests to turn the ’12 Days’ logo into a free shape.
And you know what I like to say:

Your wish is my command!

Although, I did tweak it so that it would be a little more universal than using ’12 Days’, ya know?


To download it for free–today only–click HERE.


This is no longer available as a freebie, but you can purchase it in the store.

Next item up for today?

Today’s page comes from the loveliness that is Laura Vegas.

[ Shapes | This+That: Winter (snowflake) / December Twenty Five (christmas) / Decade 2000 (twenty seven) / Storyboard #1 ]

I tell ya . . . photo templates are an awesome way to get so many of those precious memories on one page! What a lovely page Laura!

Here’s what Laura has to say:

I came across some Christmas photos from a family get-together, taken back in 2007, that I had never gotten around to scrapping. I had quite a few photos, and wanted to get them all onto a layout, so I picked out one of Kerri’s Storyboard templates to create two quick photo collages. I knew the collages would go side by side, on the two pages, so that it created one large collage across the two-page spread. So I simply turned the template upside down, so that the template design was flip flopped on the second page. I never use snowflakes, being as we live in California, where we just don’t have true “winters” or see any snow. But since the majority of the family was wearing a lot of blues, browns, reds, and lighter colors, I thought it would be a nice opportunity to go with a more “winterey” color scheme and use the snowflakes instead of Christmas trees, presents, or other typical Christmas themed shapes. I didn’t add any journaling to this layout, which isn’t normally something I skip. But I’m not that worried about it, since this is really just a collection of photos from Christmas day, which we know involved family, good food, gifts, and spending time together. 

I love that Laura took some time to scrap some photos from five years ago. I think that often times we scrap what’s current–and that’s great–I think we should. But if we have a moment to go back farther? Do it before those detailed memories start to fade. You think you’ll remember something forever . . .

So, to help you do the same and reach back into the first decade of the 2000 millennium (remember when Y2K was a big deal??), this is the kit on sale today.

Instead of $10, it’s on sale for just $5 for today only.

 And HERE are some examples on using it in action.

    Love it!! Thanks. We are hoping for snow here in northern Illinois, at least we are, not sure about all around us. Since we moved from southern Missouri and didn’t get that much and my husband loves snow. Snow blower ready. Is he really ready? We will see.

    Thank you! Thank you! I’m lovin’ this freebie. (in fact, loving everyone of them) I also have a question to ask. I like to purchase the designer edition: extras but I only have basic Silhouette Studio. Will it work on the basic studio? I just bought the Portrait. Thanks so much for your help.

      Hey Teresa! Yes…the ‘extras’ in all the kits are just shapes (or a printable item), so they will work with Studio, DE, SCAL, or whatever cutting machine you may have. You don’t even have to have a Silhouette to use them. :)

    So so cool! Thanks a LOT!

    Love the new word art freebie, love Laura’s LO, love that I got my niece’s card and gift in the mail for her birthday on Saturday…Thanks for the distraction from this final crazy countdown to Christmas. Just looked at the wish lists and realized I still have nothing for my FIL or my mom, and need more for my MIL. I still need to wrap everything, make gift card holders for the gift cards being given…Yikes!

    I’ve always so admired that heading so was thrilled when you offered it as a freebie – thank you very much!!

  12. Cathy December 18, 2012 at 9:32 pm

    Thank you for your generous gifts of the season.

  13. teresa December 18, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    Is it only me or everyone else? I couldn’t open today’s freebie in Silhouette Studio. Every time I try it, it will say the studio is not responding. HELP!
