I hope you have been following along with the Last 12 Freebies of 2012 over on Kelly's Blog!  The team has some amazing freebies for you every day until the end of the year.  Today is my day and I have a cluster frame freebie to share with you.  Kelly is showcasing her favorite kits, counting down to the one that is her favorite! I chose the kit Sleepy Beauty because Aurora is my 4-year old daughter Sarah's favorite princess.


I hope you enjoy the frame, it makes a good word art too (that's how it started out, but then grew!).

Are you doing a December Daily this year? October has a lot of Christmas fun planned for us throughout the entire month and today's new release just kicks off her gorgeous new holiday-themed kits! North Pole City was inspired by the Santa float during the parade at Mickey's Very Merry Christmas party and perfectly captures the magic of Santa. It is perfect for scrapping all of your Santa memories, opening presents under the tree, Christmas shopping, December Daily, holiday cards and oh so much more. Included with this HUGE kit (the download is over 300MB) are 4 full alphas, more than 100 elements and 40 papers. With all of the variety, you can easily use North Pole City as your go-to Christmas kit!


    And, October has a bunch of great add-ons to help you finish out your holiday pages!


    And she made a total of 5 word art packs to use with all of your holiday pages, including some super fun international ones with the names of Santa and Merry Christmas in other languages!

    And, she's even combined ALL of this new stuff into 2 different bundles. The first bundle is JUST the 5 word art packs and the second includes ALL 9 new releases!

    All of these new releases are on sale for 25% off through Monday, December 3, 2012. Which takes their normal great prices down even more! So, hurry up and go buy yourself some Christmas presents.

    I really enjoyed playing with North Pole City. Here's what I created with it.

    I'm sorry I did not get a freebie done this week. We are in the midst of Nutcracker rehearsals and it has been a little hectic. It is such a wonderful show though and really puts me in the Christmas spirit!
    I hope you have a great weekend, be sure to go out and make some great holiday memories! Photobucket

    Tis The Season! New from Kellybell Designs!

    As soon as one holiday finishes, it's time to welcome in the next holiday.  It's the last day of November and it's full steam ahead with all the Christmas and holiday planning.  It's time to trade in your visions of pumpkin pie for visions of sugar plums.  Kelly has a wonderful new collection for you today that's all about scrapping your Christmas planning, decorating and family celebrations.  There's no such thing as too many presents or too many Christmas scrapbooking kits.  Let me introduce you to...

    This collection has a gorgeous cool toned color palette including some beautiful pink papers and elements.  The kit has 15 papers and more than 50 elements.  There's a full candy red alpha along with a candy cane, flowers, frame, ornaments, snowflakes, buttons, candies, Christmas trees, flairs, journal tags, ribbons, word tags, snow scatter and more.

    Take a look at this word art pack of 5 titles.  So playful!

    Kelly also has an alpha pack with 4 different colors in pink, green, yellow and blue.  You can be very crafty and create your own beautiful titles by mixing and matching these letters.

    If you love adding solid papers to your layouts and stacking them up, here's a cardstock pack with 8 solid colors.

    Of course you can't live without the magnificent page starters and paper stacks.  I've come to rely on these to give my pages a clustering boost and a quick start.

    The Tis The Season collection is on sale this weekend only for 25% off.  Make sure you fill up your shopping cart with all the extras too.  You'll find everything at

    Kelly's kits are so versatile.  Tis The Season can be used for scrapping your photos with Santa, decorating the tree, making holiday cookies and of course for all your adventures at Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.  Here's a page that I scrapped.  I made it with the Paper Stacks and Page Starters- I just LOVE using those to throw together a beautiful page quickly!


    Tis the season for handing out some holiday goodies too.  Have you been naughty or nice this year?  Just wondering!  Kelly's Creative Team has 3 freebies for you to collect today.  Here's the ladies that you need to visit with today.  Make sure you leave some holiday magic for them.

    And me makes three!  

    I made you a sweet little word art today, perfect if you visit Santa Claus in his Chalet at Downtown Disney like we do every year.  It's our tradition!  I hope you like it!
