Get inspired by December Exclusives!

It's that time of year that even though it may be cold outside you, have a cozy feeling in your heart. From the birth of a very special baby, to gatherings with friends, spiritual experiences at church, love for nature in all her frosty glory, lighting a menorah, tropical vacations with palm trees instead of pines, caroling your heart out, welcoming a new pet hippo, or getting ready for the man in the red suit-there are so many activities going on and now you have a kit for each one! To spice things up this month each designer was asked to create a kit inspired by a holiday song! We are decking the halls! We are rockin' around the Christmas tree! Some kits are pretty obvious and it is easy to tell the kit that inspired them. Others may be a bit harder to find out what song was the inspiration. So crank up the holiday tunes and shop through our December Exclusive Collections!

We are so happy to share these awesome layouts with you too! You can look at any kit and think it can be a great kit, but when you are able to have a sample with a wonderful layout it can really get the creative juices flowing! Our creative designers put together some beautiful layouts to give you just a sampling of what amazing creations you can complete with this month's exclusive designs!
Scraps N Pieces

"Children everywhere are trying their best to make sure they're on the nice list. That can mean only one thing… Santa Claus is coming to town! Scrap your children's exciting wait for Santa – and all the treats found under the tree – with Santa Claus is Coming to Town (Tropical).  This bright, whimsical kit captures the joy of a childhood Christmas in a more tropical locale, swapping out icy blues for more tropical teal and hot pink hues. Instead of pine trees, there are palm trees wrapped in lights. The snowmen look ready to surf and sip tropical drinks, while the penguin is ready to dance the hula. And Santa has swapped his sleigh for a hammock to relax in. Not to worry though! There are still candy canes, strings of lights, and plenty of presents for Christmas night. Santa Claus is Coming to Town also comes with a festive patterned papers, wrapping paper solids, accent elements aplenty, and a sweet candy cane alpha to round out your page. Whether you choose to be a little naughty and treat yourself to this kit or ask Santa to leave it under the tree, you need Santa Claus is Coming to Town." -Scraps N Pieces

Marniejo's House of Scraps
"A soft and friendly look at winter from my perspective.  Children bundle up to romp in the fresh fallen white blanket.  A place where animals trip through the yard to nibble on exposed branches.  Fox play up and down the street leaving tracks in the snow.  So, let's go walking in a winter wonderland!"

"Everything Hanukkah! It would have been easy to do a kit based off Dreidel Dreidel Dreidel - the iconic song of Hanukkah for the young. But instead I found a group called Six13 who do adaptions of other songs to tell the Hanukkah story like Chanukah Shake it Off and Bohemian Chanukah. It's easy to find these fun songs with a quick search on Youtube." -Clever Monkey Graphics
