Digital Winter Kit: Frosty Holidays - Conny Samberg Layout

L E T   I T   S N O W

Conny Samberg is the phenomenal digital layout artist who designed this artful layout using my Frosty Holidays kit. I stumbled across her talent this winter and became a fan instantly.  Her layering is impeccable and eye for color is always on queue.  Her blog is Conny's Digital Scrapbook Art.

Examples of how she uses elements to balance and create depth on a page:
  • Layering
  • Using odd numbers of elements
  • Triangulating similar elements or color
  • Balancing colors across from each other
  • Adding a unique element to a similar grouping for interest 
  • Gauging drop shadows for more depth
A few of my favorite things she's done here {besides EVERYTHING}, is she enlarged one style of snowflake for added texture and layered the lilac fabric flower.  To add a touch of uniqueness, notice how she offset one of the flowers a bit and ensured that a different side of that element is shown when duplicated.  Love how she arranges the floral elements ~ just beautiful!

As I design more kits, each becomes my favorite.  This kit is available on MY ETSY - FROSTY HOLIDAYS. Perfect for a Frosty Winter Digital Kit, as well as Digital Christmas Kit.  Beautiful lace, snowflakes, digital fairies, fabric flowers in cool tones of blue, lilac, sage and parchment. The distressed papers are great too.  Scroll down the Blog to see additional layouts created for inspiration.  Lots of wonderful feedback from customers.  Thank You!

This photo of my husband and I was taken a few Christmases ago.  
We all dressed up and I snagged the chance to wear those AWESOME black velvet gloves.
For several years, I've asked family to wear a certain color palette during holidays.

*** AND ***

Guess which years Christmas photographs will stand out the most?

Guess how many laughs your kids will get from doing it? 

All the fuss and occasional drama is worth it!

It truly makes the holidays a little more festive!

Betcha some of you ladies do this too!

"Scrappers are more nostalgic and sentimental,
simply because they spend a lot of time reminiscing
about the people they love most through digi.
Every holiday page created transforms into a memory
made more precious by freezing it in time."

Here are layouts created with the kit.

Look at the versatility and fun you can have with it.



Papier Creatif Digital Scrapbook Kit - Christmas Creatif Layouts

Juls, Cheer

Catherine, Vintage Santa

Kathryn - Oh Holy Night December Calendar

Ho! Ho! Ho!  Papier Creatif's Christmas Creatif kit is rockin' the roof top!  I hear sleigh bells ringing just looking at these adorable layouts from these special ladies!  Thank you all so much for your lovely work :)  They inspire me to turn on my Christmas playlist!  Time to start decking the halls!

My parents always made the holidays special and magical for us.  From time to time, the Christmas tree theme would change.  One particular year, the tree was adorned with white feathered doves and red bows ... so sweet.  Wonderful memories ... memories that I enjoy freeze framing. No wonder I am drawn to digital scrapbooking and photography.  My creative side was inherited from my Mom and Great Grandmother, who were artists in completely different mediums.  Mom used to do tole painting; one of the Tole Painter Associations charter members, oil painting and floral arrangement.  Her Grandmother was a gifted china painter. Later, her father began oil painting in his retirement.  And while I am not the *Picaso of Digi*, I sure do love it!

I have always been the primary photographer in the family.  Always interested in old family photographs and have sentimental attachment to the old-style cameras my parents used growing up. Don't you all love looking at photos of when you were growing up decorating the tree?  Great stuff ... 

Digital Scrapbooking is truly an act of LOVE.  Those of us in the circle, know that.

When decorating for the holidays, we load and crank up the CD player!  If you guys want some great music to create a festive backdrop for Christmas decorating {and to make it more fun and not such a chore - because, come on, it's work!!!} or for your holiday dinner music, here's my personal favs listed in order.


  1. Holly & Ivy, Natalie Cole -- a TOTAL MUST HAVE!  Classic, soulful.
  2. Cool Yule, Bette Midler -- love that girl.  Not only can she act but sings with heart!
  3. Merry Christmas, Bing Crosby -- amazing how his music withstands the test of time.
  4. Merry Christmas, Baby, Rod Stewart -- what a DREAMY voice that man has!
  5. Joy to the World, Faith Hill -- a soft, religious delight.
  6. Miracles, The Holiday Album, Kenny G -- soothing instrumental, Mr. Cool, right?
  7. On This Winter's Night, Lady Antebellum -- love All I Want For Christmas Is You
  8. A Winter Symphony, European style, Total Opera Diva.
  9. Under the Mistletoe, Justin Bieber -- okay, I got this one for the kids, but I like to mix it up!
