I love the December Papercrafting Kit so much that my first two layouts used supplies just from the kit with one small exception.
Family Winter Walk: This layout is a REDO! Yes I have a few layouts I want to REDO, because they just don't make me happy looking at them. Perhaps they veer so much from my own style, or they don't tell the story I want it to tell. I love this layout now. The layout reminds me of the day and makes me smile.
I just loved the yellows, blues, and pinks in the kit and I focused on the yellows and blues here. The dotted envelopes in the kit are a.dorable! Here's where I ventured outside the kit and used the pins from the Artisan Add-on. The film strip and photo edges are digital and the snowflakes are a Martha Stewart punch.
The envelope holds extra photos and journaling from this day and so I let it known with a sticker from the Basic Grey sticker sheet in the kit.
Love, the Youth's Companion - There's a story to this layout also. I took inspiration for this layout from a little notebook I've had forever.
This little notebook has sketches I made at one
very long extremely long doctor's appointment. This doctor has GREAT magazines - don't you just love it when that happens! I sketched to my hearts content, many of the ads in the magazines.
Here's the one I used that spring-loaded me into this layout:
I know - the layout looks nothing like the inspiration - but isn't that the GREAT thing about inspiration? It starts you off in a direction and you take it from there.
I loved playing with the Bonus Chevron Stencil Cut in the kit this month. I sized it to fit on my page and deleted all but three of the zig-zags. So much you can do with this file!
Here's the December Papercrafting kit:
and here's the digital cutting file - I'm not sure you can see it, but the Exclusive Stencil in the same chevron pattern is offered in the kit too. So many possibilities with the stencil, too!
