I love it when my favorite people in the world gather in our Home for Christmas. <3
While it may not be the home that my girls grew up in, it’s the home of new beginnings for all of us. It’s the home where we are blending and growing families and experiencing new traditions together.
As I began putting the pieces of this layout together, I knew EXACTLY which photos would complete these pages perfectly. In 2022 we decided to celebrate Thanksgiving a week early because I was due to have surgery the day before turkey day. I had purchased matchy-matchy pajama’s for everyone from Old Navy with the intention of gathering for a fun family Christmas photo. I’m so thankful to Close To My Heart for their brilliant design of this year’s Christmas patterns – the papers matched so perfectly! And that gingham though… my absolute favorite! <3
I used the beautiful Home for Christmas paper collection which appears in the 2023 Close To My Heart Sept/Oct Seasonal Catalog.
This layout easily came together with a few fun pieces from the Home for Christmas Digital Art Collection. I simply uploaded a few of the .SVG files into Cricut Design Space for easy assembly on my project.
I am so glad that we decided to take these adorable family photos. Even though I try to take photos every time we get together I’m finding that I’m not taking as many photos as I once did. I guess I’m trying to just live in the moment more. But I will say, I went ahead and purchased several more of the Home for Christmas Paper + Sticker packs. This way I can recreate this fabulous layout for each one of our kiddo’s books.
As a reminder, the Home for Christmas Collection is available through October 31st, 2023 while supplies last on my Close To My Heart Website. After that, please be sure to check my Studio Stash for additional availability.
