010118 January CKC Kit Reveal

I love January. I love clearing away all the glory of the Christmas season. 
I look forward to a quiet month tucked away in my happy scrappy place.

Please welcome our January Guest Designer, one of our regulars, Julie
You'll have a chance this month to get to know her even better.

On to our inspiration kit chosen by the lovely Lisa:

Cocoa Daisy November 2017 Fair Isle Main Kit
I thought this was a very interesting mix. 
Although obviously seasonal there is still a kind of artsy tropical vibe to it. 
Let's check out the Magic Blue Box!

I began (as usual) with the papers...

Organic shapes, plaid, subtle print, green organic,
snowflake, rows of cars, more snowflakes, stripe...

I actually had some excellent matches, but I have my December 
Daily to do yet & wanted something a tad more out of the box.

Webster’s Pages/Nest “Tickled”, Shimelle/Go Now Go “City”, Dear Lizzy 2012, Kaisercraft /Secret Bird Society “Mystery”, Kaisercraft /Fine & Sunny “Avenue”, snowflake washi stand-ins , unknown

Here's the full Fresh Start kit:

I've tossed in a couple of stamp sets & other goodies from Felicity Jane.

Here's the hop list - don't miss a stop!
Head straight to Lori HERE.

Hope your new year is merry & bright!
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I like the twist you've put on the kit. There's some unusual papers there. Enjoy!

  2. What a fun mix of papers! I am looking forward to seeing what you create with it!

  3. "A quiet month tucked away in my happy scrappy place" sounds like an absolutely perfect goal for January, and I think you'll have a great time there using this kit! I love the way you interpreted the inspiration with your December Daily in mind and that Kaisercraft bird/floral paper is particularly lovely.

  4. Quiet Januarys are my favourites! Love the kit, as always - especially the inclusion of those stamp sets!

  5. Love your kit and your description of January.....

  6. Ooooh--great papers! I LOVE the feather print!

  7. Very pretty mix of supplies! I love the feather print, I almost included it as a counterfeit for the same paper! LOL! Eager to see what you do with this kit!

  8. Super cute kit Leslie :) hmmm did not catch that neutral snowflake paper when I did my kit so glad now I added one to my kit :) Love the variety of papers and stamps for your kit :) Looking forward to seeing what you create with it :)

  9. Love your out-of-the-box approach, fab kit :o)

  10. Awesome inspiration for doing something different with this! Thanks!

  11. Beautiful kit, love that you went a different direction and still captured the essence of the inspiration kit.
