Snow layout

Didn't get this done in time for Practical Scrappers, but got it done eventually anyway (:  Love love love that I used "untraditional" colors for a snow layout!  I also love that I got my stamps out and worked on it!

Glimmer mist, pins, and more!

 The paper is BoBunny with a hodge podge of other ingredients.  This is the first page I've done rolled flowers on and I used my 2 inch scallop punch as the base.  I also used pins on the this in two different spots!  I've not used them much in the past, so it was fun to find them fitting in so well (:  The "I don't like coffee" thing is just my little girl being cute and something I wanted to remember her saying!

 Pins again!  Kraft paper, again!  I'm on a roll on those two things!  

Used glimmer mist for the first time ever on this layout!  I also used my "Sew Easy" for the first time ever.  I like it, but here is what I works best on one layer of paper, otherwise it is hard to punch thru several layers or two for that matter.

Studio Calico Club Feature

Here are the five layouts I came up with using this months "Metropolitan" kit:

Studio Calico has a great blog and a facebook page.  I have enjoyed the regular updates they do on Facebook providing examples from the current kit.  Their blog features weekly challenges and product spotlights, along with several other regular features. .

Sweet Peach Crop Shop Kit

I was able to work with the November "Sweet Featured Kit" and here's the layouts I created:

This one took about 2O came together so quickly thanks to the embellishments all being coordinated for me!

This one did not photograph well...the foggy day here in Illinois was not cooperating!  Total bummer because I really love how the layout turned out!  This one took longer but that's because I punched out and glued down all those little flowers...I knew that going in and it was totally worth it!  I had seen this technique on Melinda blog and wanted to attempt it.

 I've been itching to get my hands on some of this American Crafts rose ribbon, I was so excited it was in the kit...this whole layout was built around it!

  This kit featured a lot of paper from another one of our sponsors "Glitz Design" and this layout is all from them except the letter stickers.  The polka dots are one of their cute rub ons.  This layout was based on the sketch that they included in their kit.  It was created by Liz Chidester from The Scrappiest.

 What I really enjoyed about working with this kit is that I could do both bright, loud layouts and soft, calm ones like this.  On this layout I even used part of the packaging, a brown bag to mat the picture of Coop.  It matched his blankie too well to pass it up!

I was able to create five layouts in less than three hours and have plenty of letter stickers and patterned paper left over to do more.  I enjoyed having all the supplies ready to go and let me focus on being creative with them.  One of my favorite things about working with kits is you often get at least one thing that you wouldn't normally work with...for me that was the big black Theresa Collins flower from the "Harvest Honey" layout.  To my surprise when I added it to that layout I was thrilled with how it looked and I'm glad I got the chance to try it out!

Dixie Pieces Kit

I've been doing monthly kit reviews for Practical Scrappers and this the projects I did with the one for Dixie Pieces.  Here's what I was able to create using the Krafty Lime kit:

 I used my Martha Stewart fringe scissors on the fabric...made for a really fun look!

 These flowers were also created using my Martha Stewart fringe scissors and that fabric!

 This layout includes the twine mesh.
