Dress Up!
By: Romy Veul
Tradition: I'm not sure if you could call this a tradition, but at Christmas all family members dress 
themselves up beautifully...I've taken this picture of my niece Lisa last year and I think she looks so 
gorgeous with her beautiful new hairdo, her amazingly beautiful new glasses and everything else...

Supplies Used: Noel Cheer, Noel Ornaments, Noel Postcards, Noel Traditions, Noel Cut Out, 
Noel Combo Sticker, Noel 12" Chipboard, Noel Rub-Ons, Noel Cranberry Rose Trim, Noel Antique Lace Petal.

Designer Notes: The 'Postcards' patterned paper is perfect to use both as a background and to cut out pieces of. 
I decided to take my scissors and just cut away... instead of cutting out the postcards, I choose to cut out a 
few images that were on the postcards, for example the playing girl and the Santa on top of my layout.

What are your family traditions?


  1. I love reading about Christmas traditions! I can't wait to hear everyone else's.
    Great layouts everyone. Thanks for the inspiration.
    I know a ton of people do it... but I love Christmas jammies on Christmas Eve!!! Everytime I wear them through the year, I get a little bit of the Christmas spirit.

  2. Baking cookies for santa,

    reading the night before christmas on christmas eve

    taking a family photo in front of our tree

  3. I started a new tradition this year. We gathered up our collection of Christmas books and wrapped the like gifts, ten a random number 1-24 was placed on the tags. Each night, we open a book and read it as a family. I have The Night Before Christmas marked with 24. My five year old daughter loves it!

  4. not my fav , although its a tradition deeply rooted in the british familu. we wear the tissue hats that come out of those christmas crackers
