Hey everyone…Kylie here again!! Do I have a treat for you today?!…a fun AND huge HOLIDAY PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT! Joy, Joy, Joy!! This year we decided it was far too hard to pick our favourite holiday-inspired kit to spotlight, so we are featuring ALL of them, yes…ALL OF THEM!! First, let me say THANK YOU for waiting for the entire post to load…with all the amazing kits and inspiration I have for you my post just got bigger and bigger as I went along! So, I guess I won’t ramble on any longer…and instead will just get right to the FESTIVITIES!
The Shabby Shoppe is currently having a site-wide SALE through to December 16…25% off almost everything! So that means all of our holiday goodies are on sale too! – you can CLICK HERE to see all of them…there is something for everyone! :o) Take it from me, the digital kits are all soooo versatile that you’ll be using them in some way or another the whole year through. And, because we are spotlighting our HOLIDAY PRODUCTS they will continue to be ON SALE until our next featured product spotlight (not until January!!)…so enjoy the savings while you can! :o)
Here is a short preview of each kit so that you can see what’s on offer in a little more detail. (Of course there is even more information, inspiration and preview details over at the Shabby Shoppe) I’d also like to share the layouts I scrapped, especially for this product spotlight, using each one of the kits (I sure did have a lot of FUN…and I love how differently they turned out!). And finally, a product spotlight is not a product spotlight without some AWESOME inspiration from the girls!
SP’s most recent holiday kit is the magical Sugarplum dreams! The name along fills me with the spirit of the season! It is a delight to scrap with…a little bit of sparkle, shine and SHABBY-ness! And if that wasn’t enough, the sugarplum additions will extend your scrapping options even more and add the perfect amount of sweetness and whimsy to your holiday and winter pages!
I combined both the full digi-kit and the additions for my Christmas Angel layout. It’s like being a kid in a candy store…so many pretty things to look at and make use of – I just kept layering and layering!
I do believe it is time for Believe! ;o) Festive blue, red and green…bright and cheery and wonderfully whimsical – perfect for all of your unforgettable holiday memories! I love the fabulous papers and the digi-stickers…and the ever-popular alpha! This kit is a must for all of your holiday projects!
Oh, did I have fun with this one!! I made use of one of the Nostalgic Easy-As-Pie templates (also available at the Shoppe) and to the Believe kit I added a little sparkle with some glitter, a couple of stars and finishing touches from other Shabby Shoppe kits!
Ahhhh, Joyful Tidings…this sweet little collection is a winner! Subtle, pretty, eclectic - a truly fun holiday kit. It has a refreshing colour palette and a classic feel…especially with the beautiful holly/bird paper (my fave!). And if you missed it, the latest template challenge (no.19) has a free piece-a-cake quick page as a bonus download that makes full use of what Joyful Tidings has on offer – check out the freebie HERE! But I know you’ll be wanting more so stop by the Shoppe for a full preview!
I think this is my favourite new layout! To match my photo I added a little blue and some sparkles to the gorgeous Joyful Tidings papers and elements…I was quite surprised with the end result! And, boy have my nephews grown since this pic was taken!
Traditional Christmas colours with a Shabby flair! – that says it all really! ‘Twas the Night a timeless kit and a Shabby Shoppe favourite! Special holiday pages and everyday fun is what this kit is made for. I use it all the time!! :o)
As I was browsing through all my photos I’ve come to realise that I really don’t have many holiday snaps…things get so busy, especially in the kitchen, and I forget to capture the day and days leading up to the main event. I must take more this year! But in the meantime, I decided to scrap a page with this gorgeous vintage postcard, all the while dreaming of a White Christmas. (“white” from snow and not “white” from hot sand and heat glare here in Australia! LOL!) ‘Twas the Night was perfect to capture the vintage feel I was looking for!
Our final kit to spotlight! I must admit this kit is very new to me, even though it is the oldest holiday kit in the Shabby Shoppe. And I’m absolutely loving getting to know Holiday Joy - you will too!! Holiday memories, family traditions, warm hearts and many smiles will go perfectly with this boldly textured collection! Oh and I do love me some puffy felt elements!
I really wanted to play with the gold tones of Holiday Joy and bring out the fun in my reindeer page. Bright, bold and quintessentially joyful! Love it!
Now, that’s quite enough from me here a some layouts from our beautiful Shabby Artists – these are all so fun, festive and seriously inspiring… And, for more info about these layouts/projects (including mine), please visit the SHABBY ARTIST GALLERY . These layouts combine one or more of our Holiday kits (along with other Shoppe products) – and you’ll be able to find out more on the individual layout pages in the gallery!
To round out the gorgeous inspiration we have a little hybrid project from Jenelle. These are beyond pretty and even though they look fairly quick and easy to put together they look AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING and as though they were bought from a shop!! Well done Jenelle! And using the Sugarplum dreams along with the Holiday Gift Tags Vol 1 was genius! You’ll notice that I also used these awesome little gift tags to label most of the graphics in today’s blog post!
THANKS for all the wonderful inspiration girls!! As always – BEAUTIFUL WORK! :o)
And, while you are visiting the Shabby Shoppe be sure to check out all the other seasonal goodies that are sure to make your holidays both merry and bright!

And when it comes to creating fabulous and fun hybrid projects…for gifts, for crafting with the kids, for decorations, for anything creative…well, I’m sure you’ll find just what you are looking for!
