Holiday Hoopla, plus a freebie

Last year at Christmas, my husband and I, eager for holiday cheer, drove around our neighborhood looking for homes with Christmas lights and lawn decor. Life being as it is, we’ve not been able to go all out for Christmas and decorate our own home as we’d like to someday, so we rely on others for this particular type of holiday entertainment.

There is one house in our neighborhood that has what we call a Dr. Seuss tree, an absolutely hideous tall and skinny conifer that, as it reaches towards the sky, tips over and drops long, spindly hands back towards the earth. If you can’t picture it, don’t worry, as I said, it’s hideous! In any case, the Dr. Seuss house creates a light show complete with musical blinks such that if you roll down your window, you can sing along to the beat of the flash. Yup, awesome.

Our favorite house though, was the one with the trailer parked in front. Not a people trailer, a Santa trailer. Each time we drove by the trailer house, the door to the trailer would fly open and out would pop Santa, ho ho ho! There were also reindeer hanging out the window and on the hitch (or something like that) that made the whole thing hideously adorable. We liked the trailer house so much in fact, that we’d drive by on our way home from this place or that just to see the door open and catch a glimpse of Santa.

Sadly, while we had hoped to get our own blow up Santa trailer for our lawn this year, it is no longer available and a newer, less cool Santa trailer has taken its place.

What sort of things bring you holiday cheer? Lights in the neighborhood, caroling door-to-door, or perhaps the appearance of a jolly old man in red with a ho ho ho and a fluffy white beard? Whatever it is, you’ll want to scrap about it of course, and I’ll show you the perfect kit for doing so. It’s called Holiday Hoopla and it’s the newest collab from Studio designers Snickerdoodle Designs and Kimberkatt Scraps. These two work splendidly together (IMO) – did you catch their Busted collection?

You can find Holiday Hoopla, complete with merry elves, Christmas toys, and holiday joys, here at the Studio. Just click on the preview below.

As always, you’ll also find plenty of addons to this collection at 40% off through November 29th, including advent dates, stationery, alpha, word art, clusters, and solids. Of course, if you want it all, you can grab the entire bundle for 63% off.

If you’re looking for layout ideas, you’ll find plenty in theStudio gallery; here are a few to get your creativity flowing (linked for credit)

I’ve also created a freebie for you – this time a cover photo for your Facebook timeline! Just click on the preview below to download.

If you aren’t familiar with personalizing your cover photo, it’s easy. Simply add your photos to the timeline template as you would for a quick page, save, and upload to Facebook by hovering over your cover photo and selecting “change cover” on your page. Facebook will place the profile pic (shown as empty space on the preview) for you. Voila! Easy peasy.
