Julie's Favorite Holiday Project!

It's time for another contributor's favorite holiday project! Today is Julie's turn!! I know you will see why it's her favorite. I love it so much! Listed below the project is the story behind the page, so enjoy reading her answers!

1. Why is this your favorite Christmas project? What is the story behind this?

I'm fond of this particular holiday layout, of my niece and nephew, because it reflects their true personalities and their love/hate relationship.

2. What helped you create this page? What are some tips for creating this? What is your favorite part about the project?

I think the page came together so well because of the papers - I love them! Cosmo Cricket has always been one of my favorite manufacturers. They have fun designs which work well with my style of scrapping.

3. What is your favorite holiday tradition?

As for my favorite holiday tradition... the movie White Christmas. For me, it's not officially the holiday until the tree is up, the house smells of freshly baked cookies and I've settled in on the living room floor to wrap gifts and watch my favorite holiday movie. I sing along with the gang, muse how they will ever save the Inn, wish Vera Ellen would just eat a sandwich already and, as always, cry during the "we'll follow the old man" finale.

4. Anything else you would like to share.

Wanna know a secret about the project? In order to achieve a child-like script, I wrote with my left hand (I'm a rightie). A tip? For easier control when inking edges, use one of those triangular shaped makeup sponges. I buy them in bulk! Check your Dollar Store.

Thanks for sharing your project with us Julie!!
Hope everyone has a wonderful Saturday!


  1. I'm over here laughing out loud at your journaling Julie! Excellent job on this one! LOL

  2. LOVE this lo, Julie and gang! Great tip on the writing and inking.
