If you know anything about me, you’ll know that I love to bake. I think baking is my ‘love language’. It really is a way for me to treat those I love. I love to gift my baking, and I love to see friends and family getting enjoyment out of it. It’s the little things right?!
I should also fess up and let you know that the other reason I love baking, is because I have a very sweet tooth, and love to eat my baking!
I bake throughout the year, but at Christmas time, the baking really gets amplified. I am that girl who starts planning the Christmas dessert menu 6 months out. And because I have so many recipes to choose from, it’s quite a selection process. You can also be sure I’m going to overdo it!
I know not everyone is like me, but even if you’re not, it’s highly likely that Christmas time is when even the non-cooks get out the cookie sheets, and bake. What’s Christmas without home made gingerbread men?
So I am fairly certain that you’ll have photos from Christmas baking memories, just crying out to be transported onto a scrapbook layout, to be loved, shared and treasured. You may also have photos of your Christmas feasts, that deserve that special recognition that an album page can give them.
A layout to inspire you
The Freshly Baked paper suite from Close To My Heart could be the perfect complement to your photos. I’ve created this simple but stunning layout to highlight a Christmas feast. If you have the Freshly Baked sticker sheet, you could easily swap out the title, and have this feature your favourite Christmas baking memories.
How cute is this??!!
