Christmas Carol Blog Hop 2017

Christmas Carol Blog Hop 2017


Welcome to the Studio’s Annual Christmas Carol Blog Hop. Every year the Studio Designers gather together to “sing Christmas Carols” to all of our members, customers, fans & friends. It’s a way for us all to say: “Merry Christmas and a big Thank You for being so supportive”.


Each participating Designer has chosen a special Christmas Carol just for you and designed a cute mini freebie around it. So put on your dancing shoes & singing voices and come caroling with us.


I’m so happy to be part of this fantastic Holiday Blog Train again, this year, after taking a sabbatical last year 😀 Creating a kit around a Christmas Carol has turned into a fun way to get into the Christmas Spirit, because usually I can’t get the tune of my chosen song out of my head for days, lol.


This year “my” song is “Santa Claus is coming to town”. I love how it’s always getting me into a happy, festive mood.


Here’s a peek at the result, 15 elements and 13 papers (7 patterned and 6 solids):

Christmas Carol Blog Hop 2016

Christmas Carol Blog Hop 2016

Woot – it’s time for theStudio’s annual Christmas Carol Blog Hop!!!! 😀

My chosen carol this year is “Frosty the snowman” – maybe because I’m cold almost all the time during Winter and my husband loves to tease me by calling me “Frosty” (according to him I somehow manage to get my hand, feet and nose below room temperature, lol).

I had a lot of fun drawing the different snowmen and creating a kit around them, although my hot beverage consumption did rise considerably while I was playing in the snow, even it it was only digital snow ;D. Hope you will like the result, there are 14 papers and 30 elements in the downloads, make sure you get both parts.

And those of you who get my Newsletter can look forward to a huge set of coordinating solid papers 😀

Here’s a peek at the kit (it will be available here until Jan 2nd) – the download links are below the preview. Enjoy – and have a very merry Christmas and a wonderful new year!!!

Christmas Carol Blog Hop 2013

Christmas Carol Blog Hop 2013

Wow, 2013 is almost over, Christmas is approaching fast… and that also means: It is time for theStudio’s annual Christmas carol blog hop! Woohooo!!

Picking a carol is by no means an easy task, lol….while I was pondering the options this year, I realized that there seem to be so many carols with snow and cold in them, even so half the world will probably be celebrating Christmas with nice warm weather and sunshine. Soooo, I asked Robyn to recommend a carol from “down under”, so I could have some Summer feeling while creating (well, at least for as long as I  would not look out of the window…lol).

“Six white boomers” proved to be an instant hit with my family, we have all caught one another humming the tune for more than once. If you’re not familiar with this song about Santa helping a lost baby kangaroo you could listen to it here on youtube.

And here’s now a look at my interpretation of the six white boomers ;D – make sure you get all three downloads!

Festive Christmas Bundle – 60 % off for a limited time only

First of all I want to say a big THANK YOU to those who took the time to leave one of the nice comments for my part of the blog train in the post below. I so enjoy reading them – they make me smile and feel warm and fuzzy. 😀 So thank you again! <3

“Up on the Rooftop” is not my only Christmas kit for this year – another one (actually a kit with an add-on) just hit my store at theStudio… and it really is different, lol, have a look:

The colors are a little bit more “modern” although the traditional red, green and gold are there, as well. The kit is filled with gorgeous realistic elements, lots of sparkle and glitter and for the Nativity Add-on my focus was on the textures – wood, sand, linen, velvet, sparkly jewels, straw, different fur for the camel and the donkey and wool for the sheep.

And because it’s (almost) Christmas I’m offering them for a great price – instead of my ususal introductory price of 33 % off, you may pick up the kit or the add-on for 50 % off. Or take the bundle for 60 % off! But don’t wait too long – these sales are only good until Christmas!!!

Here are some detailed pictures for a closer look:

I think this will be my last post before Christmas … now it’s time for me to focus on preparing our family Christmas. 😀

Have a wonderful, blessed and merry Christmas, stay safe and have lots of fun! Don’t forget to take pictures to scrap them later, lol!

Big Hugs,
