What are the go-to lines or products that you find yourself excited about scrapping with this holiday season? What colors do you find yourself drawn to lately?

For me? AC glitter tape, Ali Edwards/Technique Tuesday stamps, Heidi Swapp Color Mists, and the OA Make It Merry line. I'm not sure what it is, but it's all about lighter, brighter colors for me this holiday season -- especially aqua, light green, and pink.

Jill: I will admit to being a big pushover when it comes to the Christmas lines--love them all, and I am really drawn to the slightly nostalgic feel of the OA Make It Merry line and the Crate Sleigh Ride line.

But,since I am an equal opportunity Christmas line lover I had to throw in some Studio Calico,Lilly Bee, Jillibean, MME, and Echo Park for good measure!

Can't wait to get scrapping--just have to find the time!

I shopped for paper a la carte because I could not find a single line I loved. Then I bought some MME brads (a big deal for me as I never buy embellies). I just finished scrapping last year's Santa photo of Bubby, and I also used some older BG, lots of Silhouette cuts, cs, vellum, and glimmer mist pearl and mister Huey opaque white... I think I'll be using a lot of the sil cuts and mists this year. And possibly some JCP flair! :

I'm using some KI Memories Christmas from waaaaay back: strawberry parfait pink, dark pink raspberry, spring green and kelly green. I picked it up at the final sale before my LSS closed: really love the bright colors. I'm adding embellies with Doodlebug brads and doodlepops and some baker's twine alpha stickers by Doodlebug. I like my Christmas LOs to be merry and bright!

My Christmas card this year I used some old MME collections. Mostly the pages with the glittered edges. I made my very first Christmas layout this year and I gravitated to Kasiercraft. Love their Chistmas papers and chipboard pieces.

I have a mix this year, too. Prima and Recollections. But I have fallin in love with glitter and embossing all over again. I watched Glitter Girls last vid and will be buying more glitter to try the arrow technique. Happy Crafting!

I'm trying to use up some of my older Christmas stash, but I have Webster's Pages Christmas line in my cart ready to checkout.

Everything here is all silver and gold.
HS Color Shine Gold Lame is a must.
Glitter tape by AC and Recollections.
Lots of old book pages.
Silver and gold tissue paper.
Crepe paper.
Silver jingle bells.
White vellum.
Gold vellum.
Gold dot vellum.
Silver stripe vellum.
Silver tinsel.

My Christmas album will use a lot of the items above, but in a smaller size. And I bought SC white woodgrain cardstock, about every type of white woodgrain/white peeled paint paper I could find, and some white/grey chevron paper.

See things that shine on Pinterest, Instagram, and YouTube.

You enabler, you! Reading about your obsession with this on a recent thread, I decided to add a bottle to my last Two Peas order, and oh.my.gosh. you are SO right about this stuff. It's fantastic!

I'm using Crate Paper, Studio Calico and a bit of Echo Park holiday lines for my DD/PL. But I've bought more Christmas collections than that (I never could resist a beautiful Christmas line ), so I'm hoping to scrap some regular 12x12 pages with those after Christmas.
For embellishments: loads of washi tape, a lot of AC glitter tape (my new obsession) and some SC wood veneer.
I, too, did let Ashley enable me to buy that wonderful golden mist but I haven't had the time to put it to use yet. I also love the gold polka dot vellum from 5th & Frolic.

Ok so asking what I'm "using" goes into two buckets:

1. What I purchased and actually using in my DD:
SS handmade holiday
SC DD kit (bits and pieces)
SC 25 days class printable and bonus kit (bits and pieces)
OA make it merry mini book kit (bits and pieces)
Random holiday supplies like chic tags, evalicious tags, glitter paper and AC glitter tape, bakers twine, flair from all over

2. What I have purchased with no intention of using this year (but who knows):
AC Kringle & co
OA make it merry
SC wonderland
CP sleigh ride
Older hambly reindeer papers and overlays
* bought a lot of all the above lines. They will make it into a project some day. Holiday supplies are my WORST weakness.

I am a project lifer. That's why I am taking so many pictures.....
