Decembers inspiration will come from the Movie Poster 'White Christmas'

(Suggested by Jane Howden) 
We all hear it 1000 times at Christmas, now is your chance to scrap it.)

For an extra 6 bonus points :)

1) White cardstock  = 1 pt
2) Two color title = 2 pts
3) Christmas Hats = 3 pts
NOTE - From June we are now looking for individual entries for FS2S, you may combine your entry with a sketch but we no longer want entries that combine other challenges as we feel the ladies that do the right thing and take the time to enter independent entries are disadvantaged when it comes to winning prizes. If it means we lose a few entries, so be it!

 The inlinkz post will go up shortly!

The Design Team have put together some great submissions,
so lots of inspiration to share with you all  :)

Entries for  'White Christmas' will close
Thursday 29th December at midnight.

Looking forward to seeing some great entries this month :)

Here is my submission for the month called.....

Mistletoe Moments

I had fun with this layout, and I have covered all the Criteria :)

The Movie Extra for December is ME!!

Hi Ladies!!

You are going to have to put up with me as the Movie Extra this month as we had a cancellation.

I have been scrapping for about 3-4 years and love everything about the scrapping industry, the on-line stores, challenge blogs, workshops, retreats etc.... I don't have a style to my scrapping as I try a bit of everything and love learning new techniques. I love owning ARTastic Challenge blog you can view here and FS2S, as they have kept me intouch with our scrappy world. I get alot of my inspiration from my Design Team Members, blogs and workshops.

I have just recently taken over ownership of 'Soul Scrappers' which is a Scrapping Ning community that offers challenges, competitions, ATC and Card swaps, Techniques through tutorials and videos. I'm excited about this new venture for 2012 and beyond. If you would like to come and have a look you can get to 'Soul Scrappers' from here. Any new members that join before the end of December will go into a random draw for a Scrapbooking kit, .......just mention 'Shazza' sent you :)

Here are some of my favourite layouts from 2011.....


I would love to see you all join in this month, the criteria is quite easy and I know that Scrapping Christmas layouts is a favourite theme amongst a lot of scrappers. We have some great prizes to win!

I  would like to thank all my Design Team Ladies that have submitted amazing layouts and inspiration this year, FS2S would not be the same without them. I wish our entrants and members a wonderful Christmas and New Year and hope to see you in 2012. Lets make 2012 the best scrapping year ever!!

Kind Regards

Here is Natalies submission.....

Christmas Treats

Dear Shazza,

How wonderful to be scrapping Christmas photos again. I just love this time of year! I had some wonderful photos of my daughter demolishing a Gingerbread House from last Christmas that were begging to be scrapped. Along with the white cardstock I went with some non-traditional colours of pink and teal, and I made my own little Santa hat to go on Bethany's head.
What a wonderful challenge once again, a perfect way for me to finish up my DT term here at From Screen 2 Scrap. I've sincerely enjoyed my time with you and I wish you all the very best for the New Year and beyond.


***This is Natalie's last month on the FS2S Design Team. We would all like to thank her for her fantastic submissions each month and hope to see her around the scrappy sites in the New Year. All the best Natalie and keep in touch! - Shazza xxx

Hi Shazza,
Here is my Christmas page for our December inspiration.  Can you believe we are in the silly season already – where has this year gone?  I thought I would make my layout bright and cheerful befitting the holidays season – I’ve used white cardstock and have red and white letters for my title – Santa is of course wearing his personal Santa hat!!
I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you, the other Design Team members and all of our supporters and scrappy friends a safe and happy Christmas, may all your wishes come true.  We all look forward to seeing you on site again next year.
Kind regards,

Here is Sandi's submission for December....

Happy Christmas Nanny!

Hi Shazza
  Attached is my submission for Decembers 'White Christmas' challenge...I had a great time putting this one together & it was good to use a 'less than perfect' photo that otherwise wouldn't have made it onto a LO!! It's one of my elder son talking to his Nanny on Christmas day. It was the first year she wasn't with us on Christmas morning as the snow had made the roads too bad for her to travel to us. We did Christmas all over again at the end of January to make up for it!!!
As for criteria...1. White CS...check! (no problem there as it's one of my favourite starting points!!) 2. A two Colour glitter & black puffy alpha's. 3. Christmas hat(s)...well there is only one but as the photo cut it off I added a felt extension & bobble to meet the criteria!!! Hope that counts!!

Mary Steinmetz's submission....

Ho Ho Ho

HI Shazza,
Here is my Dec entry,

1.)White cardstock
2.) Christmas hats
3.) 2 colored title.

I have been meaning to scrap this picture for a long time.


We have Dale Tiernans submission next.......

Oh Xmas Tree

Hi Shazza,

Here is my layout for December. It was a very inspiring poster. I immediately took inspiration from the Christmas tree. I have made a half a Christmas tree using a square punch. I've added a star at the top (also half) like the poster and added little stars along the side of the tree, again like the poster. The poster had a green base under the tree and I have included one in my layout also.
The base is white cardstock as per the criteria and I have a green and red title. I like that it all turned out crisp and clean. I think having a white background helped that a lot.
I've included two tiny Christmas hats in my journalling and in fact made the journalling all about the hats.
Aren't these stunning street decorations for Christmas?


Here is Alanna's submission.....

Oh Christmas Tree

Here is Karen Williams submission........

Just the Wrong Moment

Hi Shazza
 Here is my submission for the December challenge
I've got all the criteria- white card- two colour title- and I'm wearing a Christmas hat with added plaits in the photo. 
I tried to give a Christmassy feel with the red and green colour scheme and I punched some circles and added a touch of gold card and string to imitate baubles.
The photo is if me last Christmas- I took it myself ( hence the wonky angle and the slight blurring) Just as the Christmas dinner was being laid on the table and we were all being called to eat Nancy fell asleep in my arms- just the wrong moment. 
You might guess from that that I wasn't in charge of cooking the Christmas dinner :)
hope this is OK

Here is Debi Clark's submission for December.....

Our Own Fab White Christmas

Ah dear Shazza, the Christmas spirit is all around! And 
holidays soon...great!
I loved this movie poster, who wouldn't really! The 
magical White Christmas...I have chosen some photos 
during our trip to the UK at Christmas in 2005, 
& here is Pete & Jade eating their Christmas 
dinner, that we all prepared.  The infamous vegies 
relate to the fact that we were at Borough Markets 
the day before, buying lovely yummy vegies & 
I was pickpocketed!!
After the initial panic, we now laugh about those 
theiving vegies!
I have used all the criteria of white CS (isn't it 
great to scrap on pure white!), my 2 toned title is 
'Our own fab White Christmas', & I have used
photos of Pete & Jade wearing Christmas hats, 
& then Jadie with her Santa hat...that travels 
with her.
I wish all our DT's & players a warm & happy 
And you Shazza, our dear organiser..all the very 
best always.
Love Deb xx

Here is this months sub from Jennifer.......

Happy Christmas
