Saturdays With LeAnn

Warm Wishes

I am excited to share a few more fun projects today.  With our crazy, busy schedules these past couple of months in preparing for the holidays, I hope you will find some time to be creative, and enjoy the rest of this special time of year!  You so deserve it!

Christmas Wishes by Kylie Kingham

The holidays can get pretty hectic; however scrapbooking gives you that little outlet that allows us to slow down and take a breath!  The holidays will soon be over and we need to take some time to put those beautiful memories into our scrapbooks.  I just had to share this gorgeous layout with you created by Kylie Kingham.  I can’t wait to create this layout, and add my precious grandchildren to this page.  This layout is sure to bring back fond memories of the Christmas that has gone by.

Christmas Wishes

I highly recommend stopping by Kaisercraft blog.  Kylie Kingham, a very talented design team member, shares a supply list of what she used to create this amazing layout.  The pastel tones and added gold certainly made this layout a winner.  You don’t want to miss out on this one – you’re going to love it!

Warm Wishes By Anya Lunchenko

I love this combination of turquoise with the chocolate brown paper, it gives a warm and peaceful feel to these cards. You may have loved ones that were expecting one of your beautiful handmade cards this holiday season.  You may not have had time to create and send out your Christmas cards, but it’s not too late to send a warm wish for a Happy New Year!

Gingerbread Almond Loaf Cake By Patricia Scarpin

It is that time of the year again where I can hardly wait to make some gingerbread Almond Loaf Cake.  This gingerbread cake is soft, smells and tastes delicious, not to mention it will make your home smell completely divine as your guests come and go.  I also love that this loaf is great for breakfast, a snack, or even a dessert.  The possibilities are endless, and if you have a few minutes to spare, very easy to whip up this gingerbread batter.

Gingerbread Almond Loaf Cake

This gingerbread loaf is probably one of my favorite holiday breads.  There is nothing better on a cold winter morning than a warm buttered piece of gingerbread loaf and a hot drink.  A huge thank you to Patrica for sharing her wonderful recipe.  Click here and I will take you over to Technicolor Kitchen where you will find the recipe and ingredients, along with more fabulous recipes from Patricia.

As Christmas approaches us tomorrow, I hope you have a wonderful holiday!  Above all, enjoy the love and friendship between each other.  Thank you for being such great crafty friends and spending your precious time with me each week.  Hugs to you all!  Merry Christmas!
