Happy St. Nicholas Day!

Here in America we don't really celebrate St. Nicholas Day the way they do in other countries. In Poland, for instance, Sw. Mikolaj brings all the children their presents on December 6th rather than on Christmas.

Whether you call him St. Nicholas, Sw. Mikolaj, or Santa Claus... whether he comes on December 6th or on Christmas... he is loved by children (and adults) around the world. I'll bet you have some photos of yourself and/or your loved ones with the gift-giving dude. In honor of St. Nicholas Day, here's a great free digital scrapbooking kit so you can create wonderful layouts with your photos.

This kit was make by Moune? (sorry but the blog is in French and I can't find the designer's name). Anyway, go to her blog and scroll down to 21 November 2007 and you'll see the download link right below the image.

Here's a page I created with this kit.

Your turn! Let's see what you can do with the St. Nicholas kit...

Jasia's Christmas Card

Here's the cover of my Christmas card for 2007. It was created using the November megakit at SAS.

The photo is of the Nativity at Sweetest Heart of Mary Church in Detroit, Michigan.

Another Place and Time: Holland 2

I wanted to let you know about a non-Christmas ethnic kit while I'm at it. It's a follow-up kit for Holland by Lia Holland which I featured previous on this blog. Lia did a great job with her first kit and now she's created another kit of Holland that is just as great if not better than the first!

You can download Lia's second kit here. Aren't these terrific kits?!!! No excuses now...

Another Place and Time: Russian and Aussie Christmas

The digital scrapbooking blogs I follow are all in full swing with Christmas and Hanukkah kits being featured left and right. I've been on the lookout for any Christmas kits with an ethnic or era theme. Victorian Christmas kits are fairly common and I'll be posting some of them in an upcoming blog post. Other than that, there haven't been too many for me to share with you here. However, dear Kyra has created both Russian and Aussie themed Christmas kits that are just adorable!

Ded Moroz is the title of the first kit. You can see right off that this is the Russian one. It's a great little kit and you can download it here.

The next kit is called, An "Aussie" Christmas. This is large kit with lots of great embellishments. Makes me wish I had some Aussie ancestors! Check it out...

Don't ya just love it? You can download Kyra's Aussie Christmas kit here. Don't forget to leave a note of thanks for Kyra. She's one hard working designer!
