My Creative Scrapbook December Kit



I know you're busy buying gifts for everyone else, but don't forget to treat yourself!   How about trying a subscription to the My Creative Scrapbook Main Kit of the Month? They select the pattern paper and lots of coordinating supplies and deliver it straight to your front door so all you have to focus on is MAKING! Every month they have several kits to choose from.. their Main Kit, LE - Limited Edition, Creative Kit and Album Kit - so you can choose what's right for you!


The December Main kit is loaded wit pretty papers and die cut images from Pink Fresh Studios Holiday Magic Collection. You'll also find a stencil, alphabet stickers, roll of washi tape and some thick die cut words perfect for embellishing.
The only items I added to my projects are the card bases, adhesive, sequins and my own roll of washi tape. Everything else you see was included in the kit. One of the 12" papers includes 3x4" journaling cards that are a great base for layering.

I like the pretty florals in the kit - take a look at the gorgeous foliage and berries on this card.

A real stand out in this kit are the big sentiment die cuts that are printed in color with mixed fonts and and are embellished with images.

I start my cards by arranging the images on pieces of clear plastic the size of my card base. This makes it easy to pick up the entire arrangement and see how it looks on different color backgrounds.

To add some depth to my designs I adhere some of the images with adhesive foam tape.

I chose sequins and washi in dark colors to add some contrast to the pastel color scheme of the collection.

One of the best perks of this club kit is the ideas you'll get for making with your kit. My Creative Scrapbook has a complete design team with varied styles to inspire you. If you're looking for ideas after you receive the kit.. there's an entire gallery of project ideas on the My Creative Scrapbook website so you'll always be inspired! I made EIGHT cards with this kit and you'll find the projects posted in their gallery!

I invite you to join one of their monthly scrapbook kit clubs and experience the possibilities our coordinated kits offer. With plenty of innovative materials and ideas to jump start your imagination, preserving your memories and making cards will be effortless and enjoyable.

Sweet Holiday Wishes

Hi and thanks for stopping by!  Today I'm sharing something SWEET! and playing along at Cupcake Inspirations card challenge
I saw this yummy photo on and started thinking of ways to translate this gorgeous pic into a confection on paper.
My card starts with theStitched Pinwheel panel die cut from white card stock. I adhered the outline to the card base. Next I cut some scraps from red, light and dark pink from the same die. The colorful pieces are adhered with adhesive foam tape so they're raised from the base.
I added a small Circle Rays Duo to the center of the peppermint background design - it reminds me of the piped frosting in the photo.   I added a one of the sweet Yuletide Mice to the card - it's the little guy with the lolly!  I love the repeated pinwheel pattern.
The green die cut Holly replaces the bow in the inspiration photo, and this card is as sweet as a cupcake.  
This card is super sweet and sure to bring smiles!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Cuppa Christmas

Today I'm playing along with Die Cut Divas where the challenge this month is to make a Winter/Christmas card with the optional twist of a shaped card.
My card today features the Waffle Flower Nesting Coffee Cups die that you can use as a stand alone card or to create a layered card like mine today.
To dress it up I added a Mistletoe Wreath doily peeking from behind and topped it with some pretty Poinsettia Blooms.
Sometimes it's the details that make all the difference. I tucked in a wood stir stick but I think a little straw would be just as cute.
The papers are from Waffle Flower too! The heavy weight 5.5 x 8.5" pads are designed so that the sheets can be folded in half to make card bases.. they're printed on one side and white on the other.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
