  57. Beth Anne Thomas November 16, 2018 at 3:27 pm

    Love it! I always come back to red and green, although I do like pink and teal (however, they were my wedding colours, so they remind me more of that than Christmas!).

  79. sandy0307 November 16, 2018 at 10:28 pm

  92. Christine November 17, 2018 at 9:45 am

  93. Lynn November 17, 2018 at 10:50 am

    Love Red and Green as well as silver and gold. But the other vibrate colours in this kit remind me of the paper chains I made to decorate our Christmas tree in my younger years. The kit offers a lot of opportunity for ones imagination to run free. A beautiful kit.

  130. Tracy Kelly November 21, 2018 at 8:44 am

    I love the red and green it is my favorite and its traditional. I am not from Canada but I have visited Brockville Ontario many times as we have family there.

    My favorite color combination for Christmas is actually Purple, Green and Gold. I love putting a purple and gold ribbon on my green wreath. But if I had to choose one of the two you mentioned, I would have to say traditional red and green

    I prefer red and green over pink and teal, but I also like red and white 🙂

    Love the collection! Sooo much fun for a Canadian winter with lots if snow. I like the traditional red and green and seen some very pretty options with navy, browns and white!!

    I love this collection and proud to be Canadian. I’m traditional – green and red

    Love this collection! My favourite Christmas colour combo is traditional red and green, although I do like other colours thrown into the mix, like dark blue or shades of brown. I definitely prefer rich, dark shades over brights or pastels, though, no matter what the colour combo is.

    What a great prize from Photo Paper Play! I am definitely more a red and green girl for Christmas layouts. Very traditional looks for me.
