Welcome to our Premier Top Picks announcement for December 2013. I’m excited to share with you last month’s Top Picks from our December 2013 Premier Gallery, but first let’s take a look at the kit and videos that inspired the beautiful scrapbook pages.
Featured Premier Kit—December 2013
It’s so exciting when a kit by Kristin Cronin-Barrow is scheduled for Premier. She’s such a brilliant designer that we always look forward to her kits and are never disappointed. As usual, Kristin has been extremely generous with the number of papers and elements in this kit, going far beyond what we asked for. It makes creating the Premier newsletter such a pleasure because there’s so much to play with. I’m sure you’ll find the same when you go to make your Christmas scrapbook pages and cards using this beautiful kit.

December 2013 Premier Top Pick
Christmas always seems to inspire our members to scale new heights in their scrapbooking. This month’s Top Pick, Christmas Wreath by cheerio64, was a real standout! The depth cheerio64 achieved with her beautiful shadows resulted in a drop-dead gorgeous page that jumped out at us in the gallery. We just couldn’t take our eyes off it. Congratulations cheerio64.
