Hi Mindy
I like to change up the color scheme on my Christmas albums as well.
I'd check out the store here for ideas looking at Christmas paper collections. You can also take a look at displays in stores and wrapping papers for ideas on color schemes.
I saw a Christmas paper collection at a LSS last weekend that had greens and blues with silver. It was very pretty.
I typically buy a paper pack so I know the colors coordinate and I will use it up. If a whole pack is not in the budget, get a few sheets and coordinate them with solids.
Can't wait to see what you come up with.

You like green. It's a Christmasy color. You like the paper. I don't think you're missing anything; those are exactly how you know this is the way to go.

I think a monochromatic book can look really awesome and clean! The nice thing with the green is if you do accents with wood plank paper or gold, silver or white it will all go nicely!
You can never go wrong with what inspires you!

Greens are great but i think im going pastels bc i like them much more and i have selected (from sb.com) a pink binder 6x8 album (so cute) cant wait till Christmas !!
I saw something today at starbucks --
the anticipation is all the fun (something like that ) it really hit home with me it was on a box up ahead of where we were sitting !!! yes i had a coffee drink -- caramel pecan latte (good) but next time im going back for the traditinal pumpkin spice latte !!

This is year six for me and I chose pastels. I am using Bo Bunny's Carousel as my foundation. I can't wait. This is a big departure from what I normally do.

I won an old (but new in package) Basic Grey Christmas pack at a crop last spring. It's got soft pinks and greens.... excited to use it!

I am doing a hybrid on the theme of December Daily. Mine will be a Blessing Book for Thanksgiving tied into the Any Thing Goes Monthly Challenge here as well as a challenge on SCS that has a daily "theme" to interpret anyway you want and work into the pages, like
Getting Ready
The weather
making a list
Gratitude, blessed, grateful
time for trees
decorations

Those you can often do for both holidays....
Then on Thanksgiving I will have family members writing their thoughts observations and I will be in charge of the picture taking. The plan is to have a book each year to look back thru each year.
This is my first year making one.
