Setting the Nativity – Frosty Festivities 2013

Frosty Festivities Logo Blog

Is it this time of the year again? Oh dear – where has the time gone! Welcome to Jennifer’s ‘Frosty Festivities’ Blog Hop 2013 (with a huge prize to win)! She again invited a bunch of lovely people to join in the fun and she is hosting even more the coming weekend. So stay tuned!

You should be coming from Clair and her lovely crafty creations (look at that bead jewellery!!!) if you are in line of the hop. You can always start fresh from the beginning on Jennifer’s Blog.


I got a layout for you today, which contains a mixture of Christmassy and non-Christmassy products. I just dug into my stash from last year and picked some papers I thought would fit together. The background paper was in Shimelle’s last year’s Christmas Box and all the other things from deep down the patterned paper scraps I could find.

Setting the Nativity - Daphne - dapfniedesign - Frosty Festivities 2013The picture is (of course) from last year’s Christmas with my brother and SIL and my nieces. Ronja, in the picture, is setting up the Nativity and was totally absorbed in doing it so she didn’t recognized me taking the picture of her!


I always leave some photos of past Christmases in my drawer so I can easily can get into a festive mode with scrapping the memories from the past years. Usually my Christmas Journal doesn’t contain many photos of the current happenings, more of older things so I still have plenty of stories to tell and photos to scrap.


Blog-Hop-Give-a-way: If you comment on all the blogs in the hop, finishing at to let Jennifer know you’ve been all the way around, then you’ll be in with a chance to win a jolly seasonal prize of Simple Stories December Documented and Elle’s Studio Noel items, worth over £28! All entries must be received by Monday the 11th of November at 10.59pm GMT. Your next stop along the hop is the amazing Diane Payne!

Good luck and happy crafting!

  1. I love the photos you get when no one’s watching. I like how the layout is very festie, but with a few change-ups, could have an entirely different theme. I like the vellum papers, as well as the non-linear letters. Great stuff.

  2. Just the right amount of layers and embellishment. The heart background works great for this Christmas page.

  3. I love that you used red heart paper! How clever and unexpected! I will need to pull out some non themed paper. 🙂


  4. I love getting photos of people when they dont realise it, they frequently come out so much nicer than posed for ones. Gorgeous layout.

  5. What a smart idea to leave some pictures to get you in the spirit. I really like how all the little bits and pieces of this layout come together to make it a wonderful piece of work.

  6. ps – I would have loved to have commented in German but I just “can’t” write it! But know that I am sending you a thinking comment in German! Greetings from the Ruhrgebiet!

  7. What a great natural picture! Its hard to get people doing their own thung huh? I’m excited about Shimelle’s box this year – any day now! I hope you enjoyed my part in the blog hop too.
