 No new layouts today or yesterday so here is a few sketches I am looking at for some holiday layouts. 
Been a little under the weather and just not able to quite keep up right now. So instead of pushing and hurting myself I am stepping back a smidge and sharing sketches. Its a great way to share some ideas and not have to do as much work. win win for us all:) I have always loved Page Maps they have so many sketches that can be transformed into amazing layouts. Another bonus is I will have my notes saved so I can use them when needed:). 

My thoughts on this sketch:
The scallop border is about .5 inches - Probably a strip of paper cut to 1 inch and a punch used
The center patterned paper would be 3 X 10.5
Not sure I would use a doily but I might put another square up in its place something patterned and matching the set I am using.  Maybe make it go down a little bit behind the pictures and the verbiage area. Also I prefer 3 x 4 for the photo's so I would enlarge those and maybe turn the journaling piece into a pull out from the photo mat area. Love the flagged end for the subtitle which is probably my choice for actual title and if it worked with the layout I would have a little piece of paper punched like the area for the title just not have a title on it. Maybe an embellishment or plain. I also love the folder tab at the left of the center pattern paper. such a fun way to add in a little word or two. 

My thoughts on this sketch:

Well first I would use 2 cardstocks that match the patterned paper and do one at 8.5 X 11.25 and then the next I would do about 1 inch  in to give about .5 of a border 7.5 X 10.25.
Then I would take the pattern I love the most and cut it to about 5 X 5 and size down a little if needed. then the coordinating paper that ranks #2 would be cut to 2 X 8.5 and the end flagged - I don't care for the end shown. The other idea floating in my head is to take the 2 inch strip and score one end about .5 in and then staple to the 7.5 X 10.25 paper. not sure why that is coming front and center but I like the thought. 
Photo's would be 3 X 4 and I would use the bottom area to add the 2 inch strip's pattern to the bottom so probably another 5 x 5 and cut to fit as needed. I would cover part with the 3 X4 photo mat. I like the partial circle cut out and would go a little bigger then shown then place an embellishment of some sort there. Nothing huge as you would want to see part of the circle area but I think something there would look nice. Title would be simple and fit in the area above the 2 inch pattern strip. I would leave off the flags under the photo mats as my changes would be busy enough.
